    Uhhm no, just because something takes place in a world that looks a bit like the present day does not mean it's "reality based", TF2 is definately fantasy, it's practically an interactive cartoon for QA-pete's sake.

    Also, not all Sci-Fi takes place in the future you know, "Science-Fiktion" does not mean "Future stuff", it means writing fiktion that tries to suspend disbelif by giving things a scientific (however made up or soft it may be) explination for things that are happening, IE Vampires and Ghosts would be fantasy, as they are supernatural, but aliens and radioactive mutated horrors would be sci-fi, because it's the sort of thing the average joe thinks could be possible.

    By that token, we can barely call the UT univers Sci-Fi by the way, none of the tech or guns or.. anything tries to explain itself with any soft science or Spockish technobabble ("Field lattice generator" is brushing on it, but not quite there), it's just there because it looks cool, it works, and we're just supposed to take it at face value "because it's the future.. or something", it's really leaning more twords fantasy than Sci-Fi.

    You're getting a little too semantic there.

    There is an obvious difference in "reality" between a game like TF2 and a game like UT3.

    None that i can see, there's a difference in setting (present day versus future), and in their gameplay, but both are equally far out, over the top, and with absolutely no pretenses of trying to portray "reality", in that sence, they are equally fantastic and absurd.

    Be obtuse about it if you want, but TF2 is not in any way a realistic shooter like CoD.

    Wow... well I guess I can't really help either of you. I wasn't trying to say that TF2 was a realism game.

    UT3 would be better if there was some kind of movement freedom

    The Titan mod was the worst thing to happen to UT CTF since...perhaps since UT 2003 or the consolization of UT3.

    I fell tempted to agree, but a thinking brains stops me from doing so. Titans are not FORCED BY DEFAULT, or THE ONLY WAY TO PLAY, like those things you mentioned, it's something chosen by players, YOU TELL ME WHO RUINED UT3 OMGGGGGGGGGG:mad::mad::mad:

    titans are fun, just not all the time. I'd hardly say they ruined the game.

    Just my 2 cents on this. When I used to play UT way back, one of the things my friends and I enjoyed the most was the oddball CTF maps. Like Beerwars, Bedrooms, ArcticJetFighters, Redneck Neighbors & CapturetheKitchen just to name a small few. We stayed away from maps like Face because they became the run of the mill, same old same old. This is not against the game at all, but the ingenuity that went into some of those bizarre off the wall maps seems to be absent these days. Nice to see TwoBedrooms, W00t and BarnBurner remade for UT3, but they are far and few between. It would be nice to see some of the bizarro brought back. Looks like a couple made it into Jailbreak which is heartwarming!

    Well, on my 3rd attempt to like UT3 which was a reinstall after Titan Pack came out I only found filled servers which had Titans enabled.
    They were fun for one or two days and a nice gimmick. After that I would have liked Greed on the 3 or 4 good retail maps (the ones suited that gametype) WITHOUT the Titans.

    Make people like UT3? Use game enhancements on servers, like ONS2 or UTComp

    Apparently some people are stuck in the past and can't get over how utcomp was in 2k3/2k4 and how it is now in UT3.

    Just like how die hard UT'ers prefer their 2 poly player models and 10 year old game. :crysmile:

    This is pretty much what I was referring to, and yes, I was fully aware that it was a mod that could be disabled.
