Looking for an arena shooter that is pretty good, and has a userbase big enough to where i'm not searching for 20 minutes to find a full lobby. I was sad that Nexuiz went down because i was going to buy it, but then THQ went down under, taking the IP with it. I loved the gameplay from the demo, wish it could come back sometime. Any recommendations of your favorite and still popular arena shooters? I heard Xonotic is made by the guys on the classix nexuiz, i'll be trying that out later.

P.S., is UT3 still active? I would love to play that game, but not forking over cash unless it's still alive

Most Arena Shooters are dead or at least only just surviving. The spunkgargleweewee games have just taken over mainstream gaming and mainstream multiplayer.
Damn it.. I swear I had something for this..

Pretty much this.

There's sometimes a game or two still going on even on Quake 3 arena (disc version) but I'm sure you can find games in Quake Live though.

I also found a game or two on UT3, but again, not much left any more.

Well, that sucks. Tired of all the "twitch" shooters on the market, no recent Arena Shooter has been out. Really hope someone decides to make an updated one soon

Arena shooters -are- twitch shooters, so I'm not sure what he's going on about here.

If you were looking for an interesting shooter that isn't the modern stuff, I'd point you to Renegade X (which is in Beta and not in its best form but still fun), but thats not an arena shooter at all.

I haven't played one of these in years. However, it's only a matter of time until a major F2P iteration is marketed.

I've heard there's still a pretty dedicated community on UT2k4... I believe it's kind of small, but it's a group that pretty much refuses to leave it. heh

As others have pointed out, gamers these days no longer seem to care about arena shooters. They're all about Battlefield of Honor 9000 now.
