Your Favourite Underrated FPS Games

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

We all have our favourite games outside of the Half-Life series and after reading Blue Lightning’s introduction comment, which included a reference to an underrated FPS game, I thought it might be nice if we had a special place to do that.

I would like to you name the game, tell us a little about and then why you liked it. Would be good if you could link to the Steam page for the game but it’s not compulsory.

Don’t forget to use the new HEADING button in the comments section.

I’ll start….

July 2012 – General Chat

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

So, what’s this post all about?

Well, there’s no where for readers to just “chew the fat” (“rag” if you are American), “shoot the breeze” or “Hurl the headcrab” (yes, I just made that up).

No where for them to chat about general topics.

Fodderstompf DoorVille

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

Here is a map that was made for the DoorVille competition but has only just been sent to me.

It starts in the train station of City 17 and takes you on a slightly different route.

The first part is pretty hard but a fun challenge nevertheless.

Apparently, there was much more but the author felt it was not up to the same quality and was cut.

Will you agree with me? Who knows until you read them all.

I have announced the winner a little lower in the post, but you can download it without knowing. Then come back here and vote and comment.

Junkyard

for Half-Life 2

FInd your way to an area with a faulty electrical pylon.

If you can manage to get the power on, you can kill everything in or very near the water.

Don’t take too long though!

TREE: Why Chapter Titles are so Important

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

One of the things that has struck me about replaying Half-Life is the chapter titles.

They are such an important part of the game yet they seem to get so little attention.

What they do is help divide the game into neat little chunks and this in itself is important but they also help frame those chunks into distinct elements.
