Let's have a thread about those middle market FPS games.

You know which ones I'm talkin' about.
>>
They're often the best ones.

>Enough funding to mostly realise a good idea
>No AAA publisher breathing down your neck
It's an ideal situation.

I'd argue the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series is middle market.
>>
E.Y.E was great. I have no clue what the fuck it's about but it's great.

STALKER is still the best horror/open world FPS ever made

Fucking sad as shit that STALKER 2 died with CDP
>>
Serious Sam!
>>
>>323270802

>CDP

Those are poles, Stalker is GSC, which is Ukrainian. The studio lives, they are making another Cossacks and maybe some day tackle STALKER 2

Shadow of Chernobyl, and if you like it, play Clear Sky with the proper patches, and even if you didnt really like Clear Sky, play Call of Pripyat, which is in my opinion the best in the series

>Alien Rage

>Clive Barkers Jericho
>Condemned Criminal Origin
>Dark Messiah of Might and Magic

>Project Snowblind

>Serious Sam
>SiN
>Ubersoldier
So, they vary in quality, but I can enjoy an FPS that is not AAA. They have their own appeal kind of like low budget horror movies. I don't buy them because they are cheap, I play the big budget FPS too. Some of them have great gameplay and the only obvious evidence they are low budget is in the voice acting or the cinematics.

I have a love-hate relationship with that game.

1st one, get ZRP or a starter pack. then move on to CS, you can skip this one. and then onto CoP.
>>
>>323270315
I've always thought that game was made on the Deus Ex engine. The UI and targeting looks so similar.
>>
>>323273547
Bulletstorm was triple a budget, it just flopped

Too bad, too, it was one of my favourite new ip's

Have you played project snowblind? That's the first thing that comes to mind for me

>>323273547
This guy knows what's up. I'll vouch for the ones I played recently
>Alien Rage, beautiful mindless shooter with cheesy voiceovers and high artificial difficulty (be sure to play on the easiest difficulty for the first time)
>Bet on Soldier (needs 1.3 patch over the steam version; it's essentially a no-nonsense hardcore shooter, with somewhat wonky mechanics; it's a spiritual sequel to Iron Storm, check that out if you like this one, too)
>Dead Effect (the concept seems extremely generic, but it's surprisingly addictive)
>>
>>323273547

Bulletstorm was AAA

Chrome
Condemned
Jericho
Dark Messiah
Snowblind
Red Faction
Stalker post SOC
are not low budget by any stretch of the imagination.

Especially Condemned.
I imagine Ritual had a pretty hefty budget for Sin too

It's also had to call Serious Sam and Painkiller low budget.
They might not have western AAA budget but they are also not done by western studios, eastern europe has a really cheap labour.

Yeah I figured I would put at least a few big budget games down that were just total market flops.

>Have you played project snowblind?
I've beat it, I've actually beat all of the games on that list. Almost all of them on their hardest difficulties.

>>323274218
I would be surprised if Chrome was big budget, it was made in Eastern Europe.

So I included some games that were not "super low budget" but they were made in countries where the standards of production are generally much lower and the devs are usually being paid in cheap beer. I think they have their own charm and some of them turned out very good.
>>
>>323274873
Chrome was made by Techland - The same devs that made Dead Island, Call of Juarez, & Dying Light.

I would guess Techland was pretty small when Chrome came out. Obviously they are pretty mature now and have some more money on hand. I checked their Wikipedia page and they have about ten or so games prior to Chrome. None of them looked successful, they are mostly racing games.

I don't know how well Chrome sold but it looks like their big break was Call of Juarez. At least that is the first game they released that I recognize besides Chrome.

I really liked Chrome, but the game definitely has all the earmarks of a fairly low budget Eastern European FPS from those years. From a technical perspective the game reminded me of Halo CE or Far Cry. Maybe because of the big open environments and vehicles. I liked it but I am a sucker for anything space scifi.
>>
>>323275127
how come Chrome was a good game, and then they only made shit games? how can you fuck up this bad?

Deus Ex was made on Unreal Engine.

What are you talking about?

Dead Island is also cool for a few hours, then you realize how utterly shit it is.

Look up what it's about. It's pretty fucked up.

Basically it turns out that the entire game is the protagonist's limbo nightmare, which he's doomed to repeat over and over unless you stop playing. EYE tried to do Undertale before Undertale was a thing.

Some of the ones I've played that haven't been mentioned yet.

>Söldner Secret Wars
Kinda like Arma with all the combined arms and has a shit load of weapons. I haven't played multiplayer but I played missions with bots. It also got pic related as an expansion, but the weird thing is the boxart doesn't mention anywhere it's an expansion for another game.

>Iron Grip: Warlord
A pretty cool tower defense shooter on the Quake 3 engine. I like the enemy designs and the weapons have a good steampunk vibe to them. Cheap game fun for a few hours. Try the Steam demo.

>Betrayer
Most people have probably heard of this one at some point. Spooky FPS set in 17th century America. Fun for one playthrough. Steam demo available.

I have a bunch of other games that could fit the bill in my Steam library like Xotic and Alpha Prime, but I haven't played them yet.
>>
>>323279890

I was so hyped for Soldner, it had a CS style economy with Battlefield sized maps and vehicles. Unfortunately by the time I upgraded my comp the game was dead.
>>
>>323274787
This looks better than Serious Sam and I'm pretty damn sure it's the same engine.

I don't like Serious Sam because I prefer clever monster placement over arena-style fights. Also, I think it's overly big. But in a game that's actively an over the top clusterfuck like Nitro Family, it probably works extremely well.

Boiling Point is such an amazing unpolished gem. Perfect example of wasted potential. It was going to be like Deus Ex meets Far Cry, but then the development process got rushed and we ended up with this buggy and glitchy piece of shit.
Goddamn mate, the animals won't even attack anybody else than you and that's horseshit.
