I remember there was a site which showed the most popular FPS games, I think it determined this by the number of servers.  Is this still being done?  Im getting in a mood to frag, want to see what my viable options are.

i don't know of any site giving statistics, but UT2K4 is still pretty big...and the best FPS available in my opinion.  while some gametypes are more popular than others, you'll still find servers to play most anything you'd want.  that said, i limit most of my multiplayer UT2K4 to zaxxon's server.  we have a good group of guys that still play on a pretty regular basis, and we have a damn good time doing it.  you should join us sometime Cool

• Call of Duty 10,290
• Unreal Tournament 2004 6,736

It still amazes me that I never played HL and it is always number 1.

Hey now, Day of Defeat makes up, probably something like, 5% of that...and then there's .5% due to Natural Selection...and like, .1% for other stuff  :lol:

Wow, that's not what I would have expected.  CoD above UT2K4?  And where's Battlefield?  I would have assumed it would beat NWN.  NWN making the list at all is amazing.

I think the real shocker here is that a large amount of people still play Quake 3. My god, that game had nothing!

I've also wondered about that...I think it's a pretty good indication on percentage-wise who plays what.

I think it may be...although I didn't know that HL2 uses Gamespy as its portal, although maybe I missed that.

HL2 uses Steam - I have no clue where Gamespy Arcade ties into that.

I took a break from UT2004 and picked up Call of Duty and its expansion a few weeks ago.  I was very surprised at how good its muliplayer aspect is.  In particular the CTF maps.  Very few asshats as well.  In fact, I have seen little to none cussing and insults.   All the servers I've been on have active admins and a strict enforcement of rules...one warning then banned.

Sorry, forgot to add Edited by KS.    It was another ad for wang enhancement.  I added a little fun to this banning and reported this user to their ISP.  smile

Where are the realistic shooters (besides AA which isn't fair cause it's free)?  I thought Ghost Recon and Raven Shield had a big cult following with tons of mods and such?

The last time I fired up Raven Shield I had no problem at all finding plenty of busy servers to choose from.

It was the same when I played GR and its mods.
