What's your favorite out of all the retro FPSs? For the sake of being consistent, let's define "retro" as released on/before 2008. Bonus: Which games(if any) do you think replicate/come close to the same gameplay feel that those did?

>let's define "retro" as released on/before 2008
But "retro FPS" has always meant the Wolfenstein 3D/DOOM clone era... ah fuck I've gotten old (;´Д`)

Other than games everyone played (liek DOOM), I didn't really get into FPSs until the 2000s, and even then I mostly stuck to single player games. Some of the FPSs I remember fondly include: Soldier of Fortune (a gurofag's dream), Codename: Outbreak, MOHAA, Far Cry, Doom 3, Half-Life 2, F.E.A.R., The Darkness, and of course - Crysis

I haven't played many FPS games since around the time MW2 out (at which point I'd gotten sick of the genre), but I've seen a few indie/small-developer games that seem to replicate the DOOM and Quake-like look-and-feel. I haven't seen any newer FPS games replicating the gameplay/feel of the "Half-Life -> Crysis" era though, and I'm not sure we ever will

Reasons why are because 1. a lot of the enjoyment of those games came from being wow'd by teh GRAFIX and teh TECHNOLOGY, which can't really be emulated without first building a time machine and going back 15-25 years; and 2. the funding, resources, and manpower required to create those kinds of games far exceeded that of the modern indie/small developer of today (which is roughly on par with the average early-to-mid 90s development studio)

As much as I like Doom and Quake, TF2 will always hold a special place in my heart.

>special place

Gotta say, it's less the game and more the wonderful bullshitting I had with the people on those servers. 3/4 of my Steam Friends are those that I met in community servers and had a blast with.

I still enjoy the game immensely ignoring a few (im)balances that will never get fixed and the bots currently swarming it.
