Favourite FPS Enemies?
« on: January 11, 2005, 12:18:13 AM »
Well I saw the "favourite enemy" topic in the HL-forum and I tought it would be fun to make a similar topic, but then about first person shooters in general *.
It's fun and interesting to see how designers come up with the most original/hilarious/ridicilous ideas when it comes to your foes (most shooters involve aliens or other creatures). From Gnaar to Skaarj, from Imp to Pig cop, in the history of FSP many different types of enemies to shoot at have been invented.

Now what's your absolute favourite (you may mention more then 1)?


*Most of you guys are shooter fans, so I tought it would be wise to restrict this topic to the genre of FPS.

I think I like the imp best. The sounds and movements of that little brown fellar ( I'm talking about the original one ) are just perfect, and shooting him with a shotgun is just.. good. :)

As for the older games; yeah some Doom Enemies were quite fun (IMP, CacoDemon (although in DooM2 the sounds of the new enemies really sucked balls)..

As for new games, Human enemies (soldiers or w/e) that are at least a bit original (unlike the German/Japanese soldiers in many WW2 shooters) an example of original human enemies are the Combine for HL2 (if they are human, that is) and the government troops in the 1st one.

But the thing I would build a shrine for are the PigCop, Liztroop, BattleLord and the BullSquid :)

ROBOTIC FROGS AND MOSQUITOS (Daikatana)! Njah - they'd fit in the category of "enemies which make you want to commit a suicide"

I'd say Quake monsters are my favorites. They're just so damn cool and aggressive. Killing Grunts is fun fun fun (they make a nice sound everytime they die) with either the single or double barrel shotgun. Ogres are fantastic fat assholes with a CHAINSAW & grenade launcher. Hell Knights are tough sons of bitches, Shambler is one of the most beautiful FPS monsters ever, Vore sounds & looks eerie and Spawns are fun.

There's nothing else as satisfying as blowing off countless amounts of limbs when firing upon a fully adult Xenomorph. :ninja:

Some of my favourites:

-Quake1 Shamblers. While I'm not a big fan of this game, the Shamblers are great enemies. They look awesome and the way it acts rules too (the fact that it isn't only big and strong, but darn fast too, really makes it an enemy you didn't want to meet)

-Duke Nukem 3d Pigcops, simply becouse they rule and they're fun to fight. :D

-Doom3 Pinky Demon: they're fast, deadly, scary and they look damn cool too. Plus their intro is one of the best enemy introductions EVER
(daaaar wordt aan de deur geklopt, wie zou dat zijn?).

Yeah when I first met the Pinky Demon in DooM3 I always thought it'd break the door. But it didn't :)

The Cyberdemon from DOOM.  Definitely.  I always hated the Archvile...I don't enjoy him undoing my handiwork.  :P
