Team Fortress 2, often abbreviated as tf2 by players, is an online team-based FPS made by the Valve gaming company.

The game is based off a Quake mod made by a third party dubbed "Team Fortress" that involves nine different specialists who operate as a team to complete an objective such as collecting the enemy's flag or destroying the opposing team's fortress. This game was so popular when it hit the scene that Valve added it to their roster of games as "Team Fortress Classic" in 1999 and planned a sequel to be made in 2001 that would use the new Source gaming engine. The result of this is Team Fortress 2, the most popular online FPS to date.

Due to new content and game modes being released for its online players on a monthly basis, its very likely that this game will be in the top spot for years to come. If you have twenty dollars sitting around and a high performance PC there's no reason not to buy this game, especially if you have a steam account.

Single handedly the most fun online game ever. Puts two teams (RED and BLU) of nine unique classes (Scout, Soldier, Heavy, Spy, Pyro, Sniper, Engineer, Demoman, and Medic) against each other. A sequel to the Quake mod Team Fortress (released as a standalone game called Team Fortress Classic), TF2 (as it is commonly abbreviated) was originally announced in 1998 for a '99 release. However, as Valve is prone to doing (see Valve Time), development of the game was stopped and started repeatedly for nine years until 2006, when the current version of the game was unveiled at E3 an While the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 versions are very fun, the PC/Mac version is the best, as it is often updated to include new maps, game modes, weapons, and accessories.
I got an F on my exam because I stayed up all night playing Team Fortress 2. Totally worth it.

1. A Class-based first-person shooter with multiple gamemodes/objectives
2. A multiplayer FPS that 99% of Call of Duty players will hate.
3. A hat-based conga simulator.
4. An FPS that has the time period and art of the 20th century industrial age.
If you don't want to play Call of Duty or Minecraft, why not try Team Fortress 2 and Terraria?

An online game created by the company ValvE valve also made games like portal 2 and half life 2, Tf2 is a great game due to its multiplayer variety and great maps, you can find great weapons and misc items that could sell for a high price on the market
