For PC or for Console??

Unreal Tournament 3 is great I'm sure you'll like it.

Crysis is also great if you can run it.

Bioshock is fantastic as well.

MassEffect is MassEffect.

Call of Duty 4 you'd probably like as well.

and lets not forget the fantastic FPS's from the ORANGE BOX.

Which Contains Portal, Team Fortress 2, Half Life 2 and EP 1 & EP 2.

I'd say for the best Deal and the Most fun Get the Orange BOX, plus they have it for the 360 and PC.

I'd agree with alphex, get orange box and play through half life, to get your reflex's up to standard, then play TF2 online till your fed up of it, then get UT3 and let the karnage begin!! :rockout:

Armed Assault more realistic than any other FPS( large learning curve ), Less realistic but fun to some point would be the RvS series and GRAW 1\2 ( eye Candy ). HL2 + x pacs

If your not too good play some single player. or if you want to get right into the multiplayer action get BF2 and get project reality. you dont have to be good just good at teamwork. i love PR. Also counter strike source is THE BEST multi player game for me. i cant get enough. UT3 is amazing also.call of duty 4 single player was close to or if not the best single player game i have ever played. the storyline was amazing. the C130 level was so cool. after i played the c130 iand got done i played it 3 - 8 tines after that haha.

Don't forget Half-Life 1. I can't recommend enough that you play that before you play HL2.

I would have to second the Battlefield series games. They are EXCELLENT FPS games, and personally my favorites on the PC. I'm hoping to pick up UT3 myself here soon to test out my FPS skills. I've been gaming a lot on the 360, so it's been a while since I kicked some arse on the computer. Played over at www.bf2combat.net for a while though, which got me really really good at Battlefield 2. :rockout:

I also have to add that the new Turok is actually pretty sick. I played it recently on the 360. Hard game but its really fun, and has sick animations. Comes out for the PC in about a month. It's really fun to knife up stuff. :toast:

Unreal Tournament 3 has a big "get your ass kicked all over the place" curve so I wouldn't recommend it.

Orange Box is probably the best Bundle ever? Call of Duty 4 single player is linear but the multiplayer is fantastic.
