Just as the title says.

I avoid shooters on the PC because they have been shown to make people more aggressive. Like seriously. Never played a tactical shooter, but given the teamwork needed, I think people playing would be even more high strung than normal shooters. I never found a shooter community I really liked.

Actually I have found that in the tactical shooters I have played the community tends to weed out the high strung people leaving behind only the calm people who work well with others. That might be because I haven't played many outside of the SOCOM series but the community did a good job of policing itself with the voting system.

I haven't played a shooter in a while. I am waiting for the Steam release of H-Hour.

Used to play SOCOM on ps2, but that's about it.

Was fun.

I played only one (L4d2 is pretty tactical if you ask me) and god forbid you go into a pug.

I like those tactical shooters you guys mentioned, but I think you guys should check out Arma 3.

Yeah arma 3 is nice. I also picked up the arma 2 complete collection for less than 10. they did that offer a few times.

A free-to-play shooter i like aswell is Tom Clancys Ghost Recon Phantoms. This is my first game of the Ghost Recon franchise and I am pretty sure there better ones than Phantoms. But Phantoms is still nice and fells balanced other all. You should try it on steam if you are bored.

Well just one final question: could you count Team Fortress 2 as a tactical shooter. I mean in CounterStrike it is obvious that is very tactical but tf2? I like tf2 a lot but I never played really organized in a usual match expect in MvM.

SOCOM was good. Wasn't a huge fan of Combined Assault or SOCOM 3, but the first two were pretty good back in the day. For the PC side I have Insurgency and Arma II

I havent played any tactical shooters in a while, mostly because any shooter i used to play even if not tactical no one plays for the objective most of the time.

CS:GO you can say is tactical at some points

Insurgency is definitely worth the money, especially with the recent updates.

You will love Arma 3 if you're into tactical shooters.

Tactical shooters seem to be very underrated or kind of unappreciated.

Played the Rainbow Six games on PS1 and PS2. I haven't played any tactical shooters since R6: Lockdown.
