5 Reasons Why Team Fortress 2 is the Most Fun You Can Have Online

What puts TF2 ahead and beyond it peers in the online gaming world?

Every other game out there could learn a thing or two from TF2. TF2 once considered vaporware was announced at E3 in 1999; development lasted over 8 years going through 4 completely different designs, but in the end what tGill.info considers to be one of the greatest online games ever was released.

Agreed with every point in this article.

I've played over 1400 hours of TF2. I started playing the first day of the beta on September 17, 2007 and rarely do I miss a day of playing :)

No other game has been supported to the degree Valve has given Team Fortress 2 over the last couple years. I couldn't name a game with more DLC or free DLC than TF2. 24 additional maps, hundreds of achievements, dozens of unlockable items and recently dozens of rare hats.

God I love this game.

I played this more than any other game and played with some fun loving people. What a blast.

Alas, the Steam and Valve have badmouthed my console (what, I can't own more than one platform?) for no verifiable reason. So, they won't support the consoles either. Not at the same rate as the PC.

Sounds immature, maybe, but I won't spend any more money/ time on them. My consoles have tons of great, supported games coming out.

The hell are you talking about?

He is talking about Vavle not making games for the PS3 as it is too much work. But we are talking PC TF2 here.

It truly is amazing it has awesome community support and dev support, and yeah free DLCs the game is awesome.
started a year or so ago and still going.

The crappy shooting and crappy graphics make it no fun to me.

However, the characters are all funny and I have more fun watching the "meet the..." videos than playing the game.

Nah, to me TF2's weaponary, map layout, everything feels.. weak for lack of a better word. Just doesn't thrill me much. Had great fun with it for about a week then it just got rather dull.

But really it's the weapons that put me off. Just too weak especially that shotgun; feels like your shooting gaddamned pallets. I think the game is running off it's predecessors success and it's nostalgia from the PC base.

PC guys may love this cause of their k/m controls but the gameplay play and weaponary is the same as the console versions and they just do nothing for me. Didn't really have fun after a while. I think the online is pretty much dead on the PS3.

KZ2 and TF2 are very very similar in gamelay nature but TF2, to me, comes off as PG rated while KZ2 is more XXX rated. lol

hehehe

It's not hard to guess Panda loves TF2. :D

I had only a couple or matches. It didnt click on me, probably I need to give it another try, but it's so arcadeish. Have fun all of you that enjoy it.

I ADORE TF2, I've only played a short 2 day trial on PC and I played the hell out of the Ps3 version and it's my favorite online game ever. It's balanced, just the right pace and the class system is pretty much perfect in my opinion. Maps are just right as well to me, I wish Valve supported the console versions like they do the PC version of the game.

I've seen people less offended when their mother is "badmouthed." That console sure holds a special place in your heart.

Ahh .. I love TF2 on PC. One of my favorite shooters of all time. Though I kind of gave it a rest after everyone started playing for achievements.

TF2 is the GOD of FPS, been playing MW2 recently, but I know where I will end up in a few weeks...

borgome2947d ago

To bad the controls suck.

Lord Shuhei Yoshida2946d ago

I don't blame you.360 version does suck monkey nuts so I can see why you chose it :)

rawrockkillz2946d ago

I agree but l4d2 is up there.

-Alpha2946d ago

I'm sure the game is great, but can someone explain to me why stuff like this is considered news?
