after a 4 month break (had to focus on girl and school) I am getting back into gaming again, looking at upgrading my machine. I was playing Quake 4, but I am thinking of a new FPS and looking around for a good one to learn.

one thing I noticed is that competitive gaming seems, well, dead? don't know if that is the right word but not a lot going on for FPS.

if i am going to learn a new FPS, it would be cool to also follow a gaming league/series competitin on it cuz that really adds to it - like following Toxic while playing Quake 4 made it better for me.

any ideas on a new FPS that might have a competition seriers for it?

Focusing on girl is hard work alright!

Most new FPS can't crack the already established games, so it's the same old for competitive play. CS:S, Quake 4, BF2.

check out team fortress2, other then a couple of perks, it has a Quake 3 feel to it which I love.

In my opinion, while I dont own a copy, Call of Duty 4 seems to be a big hit in terms of FPS multiplayer, and it should be playable on slower computers(which is what makes it more popular then Crysis).

cod4 is the pinacle of computer game technology/art.

I've invested almost 3 days (72 hours) to MP cod4. I love it. Hardcore mode is where it's at. finally a game where you don't have to fire off 2 clips before the enemy drops. I bullet will usually do.

BF2 if you want a bit more of a diverse challenge. Most of the classes in that game complement each other (stay away from infantry only...) and the vehicles add another layer to the entire game.

COD4 is fun as hell. Especially when your trying to level up and unlock everything. Once you get there it kinda dies down a bit. But still, it's the best MP I've played in quite some time. Hell, I was still addicted to ET when this came along. :p

CoD5 is pen and paper based.

Another vote for TF 2.
But if you like more casual shooters, go for COD 4 MP. :)

Definatley try out TF2, it's fun as hell. On a single class alone, i've invested about 65 hours.
