The half life mod and GHP1/Maxd are the only ones worth playing IMO

I think nppl 09 can't out when they stopped making the Greg hastings games. But Greg hastings 1, and Max'd are amazing paintball games if you can get them, and a working original x box. (Which I still enjoy playing.)

Paintball doesn't translate well to video games, I bought Greg Hastings paintball 2 and it was horrible. Stick to CoD, it's much better if you want a FPS.

They are fun to play with friends. It sucks nobody plays online. Honestly it could be a good training tool if the weather is bad or you don't want to waste paint. Pretty much all the games have a field editor so you could make the field you are going to play on and run plays and such. Idk to each his own I guess.

Again, paintball games are just like CoD, but don't play as smoothly, they are all just really bad FPS.
Paintball just does not translate well to video games.

If you need a rainy day paintball practice, you can build a paintball back stop and get some reballs.

A paintball back stop is basically a loosly hanging bedsheet, it absorbs the impact of the paintball and keeps it from bouncing around the room.

Once you have one of those you can paint a target on it or whatever and practice everything from snap shooting to walking if you set it up right you can use those diamond coated walmart paintballs(if you don't feel like shelling out for reballs) and it will stop them gently and you can shoot them over and over. (also, some hoppers have trouble feeding reballs, so the latter option might be better)

It looks like this:

I have to agree that paintball video games just aren't that fun. If I can't get out and play then my choice is COD or Battlefield.

How are reballs on markers? I move a lot so I was thinking of making something mobile out of PVC and cloth to snapshot in the backyard or something

Your gun will shoot them just fine, the problem lies in your hopper. Some feed reballs better than others(while some don't feed them at all).
Reason for this is that reballs don't have the oils that paintballs do so there is a bit more friction between balls, and unless you have a hardcore motor it will stall out.
Since many hoppers are designed to be gentle on paint, they don't feed forcefully enough to feed reballs.

You could fix this by adding a lubricant. Most people break a paintball for every 200-300 reballs and coating them so they can move around, and obviously, the paint from a paintball won't harm the internals of your hopper or gun.

When playing FPS games, I catch my self calling out enemy position as if I was on a paintball field.

I can imagine other players listening to you like "D-side? Snake? What game is he playing?" Lol

The first fps I ever played was a paintball game on aol called splatterball. It was online and tons of fun.

I miss that game - I had to be about 7 or 8 at the time, which would put that game in mid 90's.

So fun, I wish they'd bring it back.
