Is Team Fortress 2 the most popular fps ever?

The amount of people still playing this game is staggering, and it's STILL being updated and refined.

Is this the most popular shooter ever? I'm not being biased here either, but is there anything else as old and as popular when it comes to console and pc fps games?

Counter-Strike usually's dwarfed it.

No, unfortunately Call of Duty is. It's all been one game since 2007, they just put one big $60 map pack every year and then supplement it with $15 map packs throughout the year until their next big one. I hear they add an extra campaign with the big map packs but I've not bought one in quite some time.

Ever? No.
Currently? Doubt it.
At some point? Maybe.

It isn't CoD. As a series CoD would match TF2 in players, but no single game even comes close. CSGO beats TF2 quite handily though.

If you're measuring popularity with total man-hours played globally, probably CS.

It's definitely among the top, but not the most popular. I'd say that title probably goes to counter strike.

It's not even the oldest and most popular Valve FPS, let alone the oldest and most popular FPS of all time.

Counter Strike is the clear winner here.
