Yea, there's some FPSers around the forums. There's me anyway, haha. I'm into COD4 and the Battlefield series at the moment.

There's ton of FPSers on the main site though...like Retodon said, check out any FPS game page. Check out the gameCURRENT and the filters on it. You can find some discussions there. Friend some other people who play them and you'll be able to easily talk daily to them via your Member Home page. Heck, add me, haha. Though my desktop just recently bust...so only playing Xbox360 shooters at the moment. Normally I play a lot of PC FPS though.

Not many discussions about FPS games in this forum, no.

gDNA offers another way to get in touch with other players though.
Open the page for your favourite FPS page, maybe COD4 (that's a link).
Now check the gameCURRENT for what other members have been doing.
You can easily give a shout to someone from there, invite them to a match, or whatever you want.
Of course you can also invite them to discuss the game here in the forum.

Keep in mind that the site started out as a place to host your MMO guilds, and only just last year became a site catering to all game types. So there is going to be a strong slant towards MMOs still. But as was mentioned earlier, there are a number of gamers on the site that enjoy a good FPS or two.

Do FPS players actually discuss stuff then on boards? I mostly discuss the FPS games I play with the people I play with... Didn't know about the front page thing, will check that out some time.

What exactly can you discuss "in depth" on an fps anyway? Difficulty? Easy of control? The way the blood-splatter sprays across the noobs as you take out their lead man with a head-shot from a sniper rifle?

But yeah, fps part of the forum is a bit dry atm.

That almost makes it sound like you prefer using a controller, which would make you a Console FPSer, the bastard child of gaming, almost worse than the console RTSer. Silence your tongue!

There is a lot to discuss. It's the same as every other game. You can discuss the story, levels in the single player, levels in the multiplayer, the best weapons, best spots to play on the map, etc etc.

Nothing really different from any other genre, particularly MMOs.

(Out of ammo for G7 Gaming Keyboard)
Sure, your wireless controller is nice and all that, but you haven't seen what I can accomplish with this keyboard. Primary fire has excellent range, perfect for sniping. Secondary fire drops grenades. Fricking grenades, man! Granted, it's a bit heavy.

Actually, there have been several discussions about the general supremacy of keyboard+mouse over the joypad-style console controller, but they're sort of one-sided. I have to assume that a lot of the really hardcore FPS players really don't spend much time on forums talking about it, for... whatever reason. Not to imply that you're not really hardcore if you're reading this. I'm not. Really.
