    I wanna play some FPS games with guns and mags and clips and stuffs but not sure what to play. My current ideas is either SWAT 4 or STALKER: SHADOW OF CHERNOBYL, I played a bit of SWAT 4 before and played a lot of STALKER so I think SWAT 4 would be a fresher experience but idk some new mods might have come out for stalker. Anyhow what other FPS shooter games are there of a similar calibre to these that you wold recommend to me?

    The original Far Cry is very nice, combining a bit more realistic and challenging shooting with semi-open levels and freedom of approach. The later games that Ubisoft made under that title had very little to do with the first one and Crytek on its own also failed to live up to its quality with the Crysis games.

    No One Lives Forever 1 & 2 for fun(ny) spy stuff. The first game is a masterpiece, the sequel has its moments. And if we're talking about Monolith, F.E.A.R. has some of the most enjoyable FPS combat out there. Avoid the sequels.

    From tactical shooters I'd recommend Rainbow Six: Raven Shield and Rogue Spear (if not too old), as well as Operation Flashpoint. Cream of the crop from that genre alongside SWAT 3 & 4.

    edit: If you're looking for something relatively modern but not outright popamole, I think you'll find plenty of stuff that's worth checking out from around 1999 to 2005, lots of games that weren't really all that great but which blow the current stuff out of the water. Wunderbar already listed a bunch of those.

    Except for MoH:AA. CoD1 is better. If you think otherwise you must've not played it in 19 years.

    CoD is too reliant on setpiece battles with dozens of bots on your side, Mohaa is a bit more oldschool and has a plenty of levels where you're alone.

    Except they are designed to be mostly background fluff, they don't influence actual gameplay much.

    Moh has less realistic damage absorption, simpler hitboxes and less movement options. It's clunky and ugly. I'm sure there is good stuff still in there, but cod is better in every way.

    And here I was watching all the Civvie 11 and Gmanlives vids with far older shooters. There are some stinkers.

    Ignoring the post-1.6 requirement to say Blood, Outlaws, Unreal, Half-Life and Kingpin.

    Anyway, post-1.6 games:
    Soldier of Fortune
    Red Faction
    No One Lives Forever
    Medal of Honor: Allied Assault
    Soldier of Fortune 2 (not as good as the first one)
    Call of Duty (first one is fine)
    Far Cry
    F.E.A.R.
    Call of Juarez
    Rainbow Six 3 (only good RS game)
    S.T.A.L.K.E.R.
    Metro 2033
    Far Cry 3
    Singularity
    Metro Last Light
    Metro Exodus

    To respond to the argument above, CoD and MoHAA are doing totally different things. CoD is about simulating huge battles where your teammates shoot into the air and get shot while you walk over to glowing objectives and press F on them to make Sgt Moody kick a door open so you can proceed, whereas MoHAA is pretty much just about you going solo (occasionally with really shitty teammates who can die with no effect on the game) and wiping everyone out.

    The only really bad part of MoHAA is Sniper Town. It's completely fucked.

    Far Cry 1 is still my favorite.

    I love the LARP, the environments are great, and the gunplay is sharp.

    e.y.e divine cybermancy if you haven't played it for some unfathomable reason
    Not a pure fps shooter, but pure fps shooters are boring repetitive garbage in singleplayer anyway

    Bro, we're in 2019. If this was 2009, would you consider a game from 1999 to be modern?
