    Remember the character that said something like "boo-haha"?

    Loved that game...

    This was a classic, no doubt. Other FPS I really liked back in the day:
    Woflenstein
    Doom
    Duke Nukem
    Hexen
    Heretic
    Quake

    Verging into late 90's, I liked:
    Redneck Rampage
    Star Wars: Dark Forces I and II
    Unreal
    Half Life

    Don't forget about Blood and Quake II both of them got fantastic "ports" that allow them to run tweaked on modern systems

    There's a 25 year old me who wished he never bought that 92lb beast living on a 6th floor apartment with access only to stairs. That thing was an awkward beast to carry around cause all the weight is in the front due to glass.

    It was glorious for a time. Gorgeous colors eclipsed barely by an Artisan I had briefly.

    I love gaming on a 240hz monitor now, but outside of a few games that can hit 300FPS+, it's difficult to play some of the newer stuff that can hit 240FPS. First time owning a G-Sync capable monitor and blown away by how smooth gameplay is.

    Only downside is the obscene video card prices these days...

    I tried the recent remake by the original devs, Overload, with a VR headset. It was amazing- pretty much the perfect game for VR.

    Hexen and Return to Castle Wolfenstein were super dope too.

    Not an FPS game, but speaking of going back in the archives does anyone remember the original Leisure Suit Larry?

    I remember the game being pretty awful, but it broke some new ground...

    I occasionally lurk on this forum, but thought I'd formally join.

    Just want to say that:

    1. Yes to everything in this thread. It's like an oasis from the extremes out there in this hobby.
    2. I appreciate TomChr taking the time to add his input. I may not share the same perspective but I do understand it and it's great that he offers the products that he does. His responses are reasonable and polite regardless of forum and that's a rarity when discussing opposing views online, be it audio or anything else.
