Endure and survive...
I tend to group FPS games in to two separate styles when I look at them. "Mindless" (albeit sometimes fun) shoot everything in sight, and "Thinker" games that mix lots of shooting with other mission based objectives.

I can't speak much for C.O.D. games, but I have spent thousands of hours on Battlefield games. I may be in the minority, but I tend to think of them as "thinkers" much more than a lot of folks seem to. I try to develop strategies and out think my opponents. Rather than play straight up death matches, most games are objective based attack/defend style games. I think the addition of vehicular warfare plays a part to. Adds to the diversity. Not that they have to be played as thinkers, but I certainly think playing them that way benefits ones efficiency when playing online.

I see Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, & Half Life all having pioneered and influenced a lot of FPS games. Timesplitters as well. I didn't play a lot of Turok (hated the controls :lol: ) so I can't speak on which I would lump it in with. Duke Nukem, Doom, and Wolfenstein clearly have a different feel to me.
