Default Any good multiplayer games?

Hello,

Im a multiplayer gamer,
I want a new multiplayer game which will keep me busy ...

I played MW3 for a while and got bored after reaching level 80...
Played Halo reach , i play one game or two and then turn it off..
Fifa 12, was fanastic ... but with my brother which went to college, and i didnt touch it since then..

Im playing only Gears of war 3, which is the best in my point of view,
Great gameplay , and A HELL OF SKILLS needed, which keep me playing( cuz im still noob )...


Is there any thing else like Gow3 or something ? i tried Ghost recon future soldier, but its boring , the multiplayer isnt special and very complicated to keep playing, 2 matchs was enough ..

Thanks

You could try Battlefield 3. It seems like that is the genre you want. It is pretty decent. I didn't like it as much as MW3, but you might.

Why don't you try Borderlands 2?

Go back to BF2 at this point. There is no good team based FPS anymore.

do I need to play the first game to get the story?
And as I heared its better be played with someone in co-op right?
The thing is that I don't have any gamer friends
They'r all drinkers :p

Borderlands is THE best co-op game out right now. It's the only one I know of that isn't an on rails single button mashing arcade shootemup basically.

You can play online with random people but like Diablo 2 it's best enjoyed with your friends in the room and a long long holiday weekend.

If you can get four people who have never played the game before starting together at level 1... you're in for a treat.

Playing 2 before 1 shouldn't make any difference in this day and age of broken canon and prequels being commonplace anyway. Don't know about spoilers though.

Is TF2, in the orange box for consoles, still being played? I have it, but never thought to even fire it up. Or is all the hubbub about the pc version?

No, the player base for TF2 on consoles has never been good and I'd assume now it's neigh non-existent. If you MUST play a console game I'd look at Borderlands, if you would consider a PC game I'd definitely check out Team Fortress 2. It's free to play and despite being several years old it's aged well and still has a very large active player base.
