I am a person who always plays adventure or puzzle games. Now I thinking I would like to broaden my horizons and try a new genre.
I thought I would try a FPS, but because of my lack of experience, I figure I will not be able to keep up with the new releases. However, there are so many older ones out there, I don't know which one to try first. (I thought maybe Unreal Gold?)
Any help anyone can give me will be most appreciated.
P.S. Just LOVE GoG.com!
Your best choices would be:
-Unreal: Gold = A great classic of the genre, one of the most technically advanced game of it's time. It has an awesome campaign, but also excellent multiplayer, where you can play both with/against human players AND bots. It is probably one of the best-aged games on GOG
-Postal 2 = This is an extremely violent and disgusting game. In it, you can piss on people, use a cow-head infected with anthrax as a weapon, and many other gross things. One of my favorite games of all time :D
-Duke Nukem: Atomic Edition = This is classic "old-school" type of FPS. It has a lot of dark humor.
-Serious Sam: First Encounter = This is an old-school FPS but with more "modern" elements of gameplay. This is probably the first one you should pick up.
-Blood: One Unit Whole = Another gory old-school FPS, in the vein of Duke Nukem.
-Unreal Tournament 2004 = Best multiplayer FPS ever made (except for Quake 3 of course)
Buy any of those games above and you'll be ok.
Also, may i suggest you buy Sacrifice if you haven't already. It's an action/strategy game, with unique gameplay and awesome artistic direction.
EDIT: Forgot "Far Cry", which is awesome.
