Twitch Shooter Recommendations

#1cjburn851Posted 2/12/2014 2:52:28 AM
I've been getting into the Unreal Tournament series recently, playing Unreal Tournament GOTY,
Unreal Tournament 2004, and Quake 3 Arena.
These games offer what I'm looking for in a game; fast fluid gameplay, high skill, low system requirements.

I'm just wondering if there are any others I should look for, as well as any mods that may enhance the experience?

That's like the Holy trinity of arena shooting sadly. Cliffyb is supposedly working on a new arena shooter though I hope it's good. I've never been able to get into other multiplayer fps games

Counter-Strike, the only shooter other than Quake 3 that requires skill to play.

Okay, well I guess that's not too bad then. I don't think I'll ever get sick of playing these games anytime soon.

Also, I do own Counterstrike 1.6, but have yet to get into it.

I'd suggest giving Loadout a try.

Captain America is just like Hulk Hogan. Both tout the American flag, both were born in the 1920's, and both got their powers from a needle full of drugs.

Sure but it's definitely NOT a twitch shooter like Q3.

At least not for the 15+ years I've been playing it...

It's not at all like Quake 3 but I'd still put it in the twitch shooter category. You need to be able to make snap movements to be good at it.

Actually the thing is I believe Quake 3 and Unreal were both high end games bac in the day so if there is a rise of another Arena shooter, I wouldn't be surprised if it had either high requirements or decent high end settings.

In fact I kind of hope for it lol. Not that i could run it at that level.
