    Unless of course that FPS is Counter-Strike, the WORST FPS

    HL2: Deathmatch or Call of Duty (the first one, haven't tried 2)
    are the best FPS games ever. Counter-Strike blows. And Quake III
    is better than Unreal Tournament, Cheez. Accept that.

    ethic, you should really try return to castle wolfenstein: enemy territory - the best multiplayer fps ever made.

    some entropy with that sink? entropysink.com

    Except for 007 Goldeneye of course..

    But seriously, ET is an excellent game - so good that I cannot even have it on my computer - if its installed I end up playing it all of the time and get nothing else done.

    that is true. Highly addictive.

    kermit ever do TWL? part of any clans?

    if you ever play again try my clan's server: 63.211.111.31 or 212.187.247.32
    teamspeak: 209.25.147.120

    I used to hang out on the =OF=Clan server - The competition there was more suitable for my aging game skills. If I ever get back into ET, I will definitely check out your server.

    ET is awsome. (And I do agree on this one ethic; I never like Unreal tournment.)

    But I have a problem with playing on public servers. I get badly beaten. Those kids are simply... inhuman. I get fragged like they are making a jackpot on me. But it's not over, oh no. They then make sure they frag me on chat too.

    I prefer private servers with friends where at least I do stand a chance on my good days and chat is reserved for discussing what's the next map.

    EDIT: well... and also some chat frag too. But milder. I'm very sensitive.

    Oh, I totally agree. Goldeneye was simply amazing. I'm
    still hoping they bring it to the Nintendo DS w/ WiFi deathmatch.

    Here's the secret to dominating in Goldeneye: Choose Oddjob.
    He's so tiny that they have a super hard time hitting you.

    I think it was Oddjob. The small guy.
