Arrow The Shooting Range forum.

This forum mainly discusses FPS games. Non-FPS Shooters eg. Third-Person and Plan-View Shooters are also discussed here. Enjoy!


Welcome to TOG's public 'Shooter Games: The Range' forum!

For those that don't know, FPS stands for First Person Shooter. This gaming genre involves a character being played in a first person perspective which means the game is played from the visual perspective of that character. The FPSs world is quite diverse. Styles vary from 1v1 deathmatch to classed team based shooters where game objectives have the highest priority. Some FPS games also incorperate vehicular combat.

A big part of this genre is the modding community. This is where parts of or sometimes close to all parts of a game are modified. Examples are mods that alter bullet damage, appearance of players, server options, and even total conversions of games.
