I play all the time. Played World at War and both Modern Warfare games to death. Now I'm addicted to Battlefield Bad Company 2.

For some reason I get the impression that members of The VG Press play online but not many shooters. Am I right on this?

So just wondering if you guys play online shooters and do you like these games?

The only FPS game that I enjoyed playing online was Quake III Arena.

No I don't really like shooting people online.

This stitle would be perfect for me if it read.

Halo 2, Battlefield 1942/Vietnam.

Yeah, I never really moved on from them and thus haven't played many shooters on line since. Nyaa

I don't tend to play much of anything online.  The only games that you could say I've spent any more than an experimental amount of time with would be Rainbox Six, Clubhouse Games, and Halo (PC).  If they'd bring back a real Rainbow Six game, I'd play that.

 I love FPS in general, well I got tired of dual analogue ones except Halo really. But multiplayer is a very different dynamic. You're not really progressing through a level and you're all sort of evenly balanced and respawning all the time. Versus the single player where you are an overpowered one man army. 

I just dont feel incentivised enough to play multiplayer in shooters.

The last one I played was the Uncharted 2 MP component, a shooter alright, although of the 3rd person kind, poured well over 120 hours in it and got kind of good at it. I played my fair share of Halo 3, and a good number of hours on Team Fortress 2, never been interested in Modern Warfare/CoD/MoH-whatever, and tried the Battlefield BC 2 demo for a bit until I realized it wasn't my thing.

So, no, not really. I skipped Halo ODST, but might get Reach.

Dunno. The single player affair has always been too conservative for my tastes, in regards of the gameplay mechanics. Respawning enemies and lame AI shouldn't be a part of modern shooter design.

And the multiplayer embodies the worst of the worst of the online community on Live. Which is only worsened in MW2 which offers perks that reward the higher level players in detriment of the beginners.

 Yeah. And the grenades falling at your feet is cheap.

Oh yes I most definitely play online shooters, hundreds of hours worth in fact. My latest ones have been Gears of War 2, Modern Warfare 2, and Bad Company 2 beta which I plan on getting the full game sometime next week. FEAR ME for I am evil incarnate! Nyaa

I usually only play one or two shooters over a generation of consoles. Having fun now online with cod reflex on wii because of controls and because I assume a lot of experienced fps players aren't there and there's no voice chat so I don't have to hear stupid crap from little kids.
