What types of games do you like to play?

Battlefield 1942 is a good start for multiplayer FPS.

Give us some ideas of the type of game and we'll give some suggestions.

BF1942 if you like shooters.

You can try the new Unreal Tournament 2k4 demo for free.

If you get BF1942 then try out the Desert Combat mod

Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory is a good online FPS for the price (free). They released to source too, so we may see some mods for it soon.

Knights of the Old Republic, Call of Duty,

What do you like?!

Call of Duty was amazing. If you haven't played any first person shooters on the pc you don't know what you're missing. At first the controls may feel akward with the mouse and keyboard but as soon as you get used to it you will never go back.

You need Counterstrike. It is the classic shooter and still fun.
