Top 10 Most Popular Multiplayer Online FPS Games for PC

I must admit I love spending a hour or two on any FPS games. Β It gives me the instant action that I crave from time to time. Some of them have no story some of them do, but no matter what they always feed your crave to just shoot your lasers, bullets, knives, fists, and just about anything your character can get his hands on. Tumeroks will be adding a new FPS game into the blog and hoping you the readers will choose the game to put on the blog. So I conjured up a small list of the what I think is the most popular FPS games today. Without further ado, the top 10 most popular multiplayer online FPS games for PC.

Hope you enjoy and as always leave comments and opinions please.

10. Counter-Strike Source
Source is actually a beefed up version of Counter-Strike 1.6. It’s almost the same game as the original, but to any old gamer that started with 1.6 would know there is a difference in the game. Besides the better graphics than the original, there is just something different about it. I really can’t explain it but every time I play Source it just feels different than 1.6. There is also a bonus in this; the old maps in 1.6 are also in Source.

9. Team Fortress 2
TF2 is great for any gamers that just want to go in and kill something. Every class has 3 attacks and got a special which is great for anybody to just pick up and play. TF2 has this nice achievement system where you unlock stronger weapons by doing something out of the ordinary or usually not so ordinary. There are 9 classes to choose from and they are all fun to play with. (especially the spy)

8. Battlefield 2142
I felt the whole game was basically like Battlefield 2 except now you are in the future. Instead of bullets you are using lasers and instead of tanks you are using hover tanks. However, even though its similar the Titan mode is pretty cool. Its a scenario where 48 players fight against each other to capture these missle silos and shoot the enemies mother spaceship. When you finally taken down your enemies mother ship there is a great joy and satisfaction to it. (like waving your hands in the air)

7. Crysis Warhead
Warhead is a really pretty game. Graphically i think it is one of the best out there. The nano suite is awesome making you feel like you are superman. The game play ain’t too shabby either, but then the single-player campaign is too short. However, the multiplayer death matches are fun when you use your suit power to punch the lights out of your enemies.

6. Battlefield 2
Battlefield 2 is a pretty awesome game. With the whole ranking system in this game it just make it more addicting to play each time. Just like a RPG game you have to level to get to the next rank which is great for people who want another objective besides winning the game. There are also vehicles you can drive or even fly (the planes had to get a little use to them). It felt great when I was behind the wheel of a tank and squashing my own teammate because they like to run in front of it. (of course you get punish for this) I just gotta say don’t be a commander when you play.

5. Enemy Territory: Quake Wars
Quake Wars is a fun game when you just want to jump in and start destroying everything in your path. Some may like it and some probably don’t. I heard people say it sucks because winning the objective is too hard when you playing in a public server, but if you got a bunch of friends or a nice online team it’s pretty fun and easy to win. Just need a lot of teamwork which might appeal to a lot of fps gamers.

4. Half-Life: Counter-Strike 1.6
This is the game that probably made people think to themselves that they should have a career in FPS games. It was addicting. (plain and simple) I couldn’t get off this game even when my hands were cramping up and my eyes were about to fall off. Counter-Strike needs no explanation if you are into FPS you probably played this already. I just have to say I still play scrimmage from now and then and you can still always find people to play with. Not too shabby for a 9 year old game.

3. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
Great game. Love the fact that you get rewarded if you kill more than one person at a time. Finally a game where they don’t just give you a congrats for having a killing streak. Also when you get higher in rank you get to customize your very own character. Very cool feature.

2. Left 4 Dead
I just have a soft spot for killing zombies. The game is great when you have 3 other friends to play with. Everybody has to try surviving the oncoming hordes of zombies. Not so great when you have 1 dumb friend who likes to shoot you by mistake for the tenth time in a row. A great feature I liked in this game is that players can also be on the zombie side. Which is great because you can kill that friend who shot at you when you both were on the same side. The game gives a high adrenaline feeling with the fast pace never ending action. For example, there are times when you run low on ammo for your bigger guns and all you got is your infinite ammo useless handguns. There is not a moment where I can think of that I was not having fun.

1. Call of Duty: World at War
Following Call of Duty 4 , World at War actually tops it for me at least. The old features from COD4 is all here and there are a bunch of new features also. For example, there is a 4 people co-op play to run through the scenarios together and also a zombie type scenario where is similar to Left 4 Dead. Its like you getting 3 games in one which is always great.

    HAHAHAHA CoD:WaW felt like a terrible game to me i loved CoD:4. CoD:WaW seemed like a downgrade to me with just a few add ons from the original. i agree with most of them just not that expecialy at number 1! Tf2 and CS:S should of been higher up the list TF2 is my #1 FPS its just so well balanced in every way πŸ˜€

  2. Marius says:

    What you "think" is the most popular FPS's has no basis in any fact or science. You just think COD4 is number one because it's had some hype the last 12 months. Well you're wrong. Counter Strike is by far the most popular online FPS games of all time.

  3. UnkleBeavis says:

    I first started with the Battlefield franchise games. Its just sad that Dice and EA have pretty much given up on them. I love COD4, but kinda miss the huge maps of the BF games. I am surprised there was no mention of Quake or Tribes.

  4. Temjerk says:

    How nice that your mom lets you play FPSes. Seeing as how the oldest thing on your list is CS 1.6 and you write like this you're what, 12? Well keep on trying! Maybe your tastes will mature as your writing does.

  5. mik says:

    Have played all on the list :

    The one my friends and I come back to is RED ORCHESTRA online for the PC. Unlike the above games it has real physics – the bullets drop with gravity instead of the laser-sight bullets in the above games.

    The tank battles are intense – and there are 3 years worth of free upgrades, maps, added weapons and mods.

    That's 3 years of play-testing! for some perfectly great balanced battles. Never had so much fun although some of the above were good (for a while).

  6. Mark says:

    I mostly play Q3A and OpenArena. Occasionaly UT2004.

  7. WRaThChiLD says:


    At least to me.. I find it the most addictive game… Also it is far more popular than CS 1.6

    A msg to srfto: Plz try to check for games throught the net so as to cover games you have not yet played in your life.

    And also check the hamachi world. It is full of CS:CZ lovers.

  8. RudolfRyan says:

    Counterstrike will always be the grandfather of FPS gaming..

  9. Farg says:

    IT's your top 10 . I saw the original numbers.

    CS 1.6 is not only the no. 1 online fps , its also no 1 online game .

    Cs 1.6 has over 9million players daily , Runescape being second with over 8.7 million active acc , then WoW with 8.5 million actives . Its pretty clear that cs wins . Becides thats Steamed cs alone . not counting people playing nonsteam version , which is really popular in poorer areas of the world . So official top 3 is




    3. WoW


  10. hoohim says:

    nice list, i found it useful as i've been looking to get back into a game and wasnt sure which to go for. i enjoyed bf1942 and think i'll go for tf2.

    for everyone else who flamed.. get a grip.. it's just a list. make your own.

  11. watcher says:

    Hogwash, counter strike 1.6 ahead of source? And COD world at war no.1? your living in a dream world.

  12. Cameron says:

    The title of this list should be changed. "Most Popular" does not equal "My favorite." Population is a fact, it's simple numbers. It's like if you made a list of the longest movies but just put some of your favorite movies in the list regardless of their length. Nothing is wrong with the list except for the inaccurate title.

  13. MM|BLADEz says:

    CS noobs keep ur minds up2date now πŸ˜› COD4 is most popular game for those who have updates pc well u cant play it on p3 thats y u love cs hahahha

  14. max says:

    Your list apparently shows you are a youngster.

    How in the H… can you miss out on Unreal Tournament, no matter what version.

    Its still the most brilliant game build for fast dexterity/aim, and the weapons are uncomparable.

    You forgot a true masterpiece.

    And to all the others who never played Alien vs.

    predator 2 on lan, try it its also brilliant in its way.

  15. minimme says:

    I agree that 1.6 is ahead of Source, but that's it. The rest is a load of cr*p.

  16. AceMan says:

    COD4 and CODWAW gotta be the best out there, i have played CS1.6 for 8 years, but i would have to say that when it comes to Graphix, COD kiks CS1.6 any day

  17. darkkiller says:
