Some typically linear FPSes that I think still deserve some attention:
- No One Lives Forever series (for their humor)
- Chaser (for the atmosphere)

Have any of you played the Hitman series games? I think that they are quite entertaining and quite challenging.

HL/HL2: I love both games and I'm a big fan of Dr. Freeman's work :)

I thought Chaser was a good shooter for its time.
Chrome had good potential but had some problems.
I could not finish either one of them but would like to try Chaser
again. It was the first game I played that had some good "near
military" type weapons.

Chaser also has one of the nicest soundtracks in this category :)

Well, it has been a while since that post ( on Sat Nov 15, 2008 5:19 pm ), so i sure hope you have found out by now, that all you need to play DooM3 on WinVista, is the 1.31 patch...

Overrated: HalfLife 2...for numerous reasons, many covered in the above posts. For me it was also the lack of detail in the maps and not enough clutter so to speak. In the latter regard FarCry 2 was excellent, i was immediately lost for words by the sheer amount of detail and the visual beauty and "wholesomeness" of the general scenery, you could definately believe you were in that african hellhole. But it was overrated as well. At least for singleplayer on PC, because it is not even close to being a decent FPS in this format. It´s clearly solely developed for consoles and multiplayer and has so many archaic features like the use of line trigger spawns exclusively. And it was broken. And Ubisoft has still not fixed it.

Underrated: Stalker! Among the uninitiated. It has a reputation of being a broken game one should steer clear off, which we all know is bulls**t... It´s up there alongside DooM3 as the best damn FPSs to date!
"Yossarian: Let me see if I've got this straight: in order to be grounded, I've got to be crazy and I must be crazy to keep flying. But if I ask to be grounded, that means I'm not crazy any more and I have to keep flying..." Catch 22

DooMike...Welcome to the forum. Stalker just needed a patch or two and a few tweaks to be the best game I've ever played. The "Plug & Play" crowd doesn't have the patience.
I agree Halo was overrated but I got some decent play out of the first one on PC.

FEAR was massively over rated imo. It was alright, but nothing special. Deffinately didn't scare me like others said it did for them. There was only one moment in the whole game that made me jump. The rest of it was just.. meh.
