I seem to be playing less new games these days, the new ones just seem dull compared to the old ones. Obviously there are exceptions.

My good old favourites are

Half Life series
System Shock 2 / Bioshock (not played infinite yet)
Far Cry and Crysis (farcry 2 and 3 are ok, though feel lacking)
Unreal 2K4 (and 99, but not played that for ages)
Unreal and expansions - Again not played for ages but love it
Fear 1 and expansions (2 was ok-ish and 3 was apparently so bad I missed it)
STALKER (got the other 2 games, but not played them yet...on my todo list)
Mass Effect....not sure that counts as its not really a FPS....but its so cool!
Project IGI - yea I dont know why...its old and silly AI.....but I just enjoy it from time to time

Modern games :
I am loving Skyrim, modded to hell, but the mods just make it something special! Amazing stuff! All the mods really can show what a decent PC game is capable of doing!

Don't bother playing Clear Sky though, it's apparently the worst in the series and I only discovered that after playing the first and third games.

Also too bad Skyrim is much more complicated to mod then the previous games that certain mods aren't possible with it as they were with the previous games.

I haven't played much in the way of FPS games lately. If it isn't DOOM that I am playing then it is usually Killing Floor or Payday.

Right now,I have mostly been playing TF2. Every once in a while I will break out Counter Strike and play that, and when I am feeling up to it, I will play through the whole Half Life series in a sitting. Can you tell that I like Valve games?
I also like to play Battlefield 1942 every once in a while as well. always brings back good memories.

Eh, just throw on Clear Sky complete and it's fine. More STALKER is always good.

Daggerfall and Morrowind are still the best but If Daggerfall didn't have as much bugs then Daggerfall would be the best.

The series kept getting watered down per game, I started with Oblivon and kept going down until Daggerfall but couldn't play Arena because of DOSBox issues, I eventually got Skyrim but was absolutely disappointed in it, it's the most dumbed down game of the series and is more of an action-adventure than an RPG.

I totally agree with you, In Morrowind there wasn't as many options for the dialogue as in Daggerfall(choosing your tone, etc), then in Oblivion there wasn't any levitation spells,jump spells, there was essential characters(not a lot) quest markers and then Skyrim made it worse, no spell making,every character that was related to a misc quest was essential,dungeons that were essentially one big hallway,repetitive puzzles,simple armor sets, only important characters could be interacted with, removal of 80% of skills that were in Daggerfall, and I could go on for another 24 lines just on Skyrim. Elder Scrolls 6 will be even worse!

Playing Metro: Last Light, since it's free with PS+. I like it a lot. Somewhat more grounded (i.e. 'realistic') than Metro 2033, but still fun. Not nearly as challenging, though, even on the so-called 'Hardcore' difficulty. Although doing a no-kill run is a lot more feasible in Last Light, which is a nice, added challenge.

As usual, the game is a lot more enjoyable when played with its native language set to audio, and your own language set to subtitles. Unfortunately, a lot of the side-dialogue isn't subtitled, but that's okay - I just pretend I'm a foreigner.

Also, I learned that 'teddy bear' [maybe] is 'mishka' in Russian, so that's always nice.

"Mishka" is a diminutive for any bear, not just a toy one. Or for a person named Mikhail. :)

I used to play Quake Live, first MP I have ever gotten more kills than deaths in lol, Temple of Retribution was my best map and the shotgun was my best weapon I also rocked at using it in that same map.

Quake live
(video of me playing my second game of the at the time new PQL mode in 2011, lots of FML moments because the movement system and game rules are so different).
