I’ve been playing multi-player first person shooters since the original Doom more than 20 years ago. Last year I was introduced to Planetside 2, a game that truly brings scale to the multi-player first person shooter. I’ve played quite a few multi-players games including Battlefield 2, Counter-Strike, Day Of Defeat, Fontlines, Battlefield 2142, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty, Left for Dead, Rising Storm, Medal of Honor, Red Orchestra 2, Team Fortress 2, etc. And while most of those were great games and provided me plenty of entertainment you usually couldn’t play with any more than 63 other players on the same server. In Planetside 2 you can play on a continent (map) with upwards of 2,000 other players. There’s something to be said about seeing 100+ enemy soldiers running down the hillside at you.
Planetside 2 is free to play if your at all interested, although you’ll need a fairly powerful desktop/laptop to truly enjoy the game. I should also mention that you’ll probably need more than a few hours to download the entire game as it’s reigns in at almost 15GBs in size.
