Re: My vote is for Couter Strike, a great FPS

One thought I had, about WCIII. Although I have and truly enjoy it, the best we could do would be 4 v 4 team games, that is only 8 people, and might leave someone out, unless there are other ways to involve more people. Other thoughts about FPS vs. RTS. RTS are harder for a beginner to learn and be effective with. Especially a complex one like WCIII or (I assume) AOM. So me, as a semi-beginner, would easily dispatch a beginner, but be easily beaten by an intermediate player. This is one of my dislikes with RTS games. There is a science to learning and being effective with them. Anyway, that is why I vote for CS. It is easy, quick, and with a shotgun and a quick bullrush, even a beginner can make a kill before they get picked off, making it easier for total newbies. Whatever is fine though.
valid points. I must say though that I was truly pathetic at Counterstrike the one and only time I played it, even though I had completed most of half life, when I played CS in a LAN game once. I mean I wasn't even a factor. The nice thing about AOM or WCIII, in a teams game, as it would have to be, everyone can contribute something. Especially true in AOM, where you can set the handicaps so the noobs get huge bonuses to offset their lack of experience. But anyone who played would have to read up a little and practice a least one game. overall, I think the FPS games are more total beginner friendly though.
their is also a coop option for AOM, where more than one player controls the same set of units, which can be good for a noob to go along for the ride with a more experienced player.
how many total can play CS together in one game online? anybody know? you can play up to 12 in AOM. If we get 12 people to play in this event, I'll be impressed. How many were willing to participate in the first one?
