Quite possibly the most under-rated game of all time. Due to a clunky interface and system requirements that very few people could meet in May of 2003(When the game was released) it did not catch on as planned.

Those lucky few who knew of this game and had rigs that could run it, got to enjoy the worlds only (and best) MMOFPS... until BFRs came out and ruined the whole fucking game. (Thanks Sony!)

Now relegated to the annals of 'Great Games ruined by arrogant pricks who had the gall to tell the player base what they wanted rather than listening to them' history.

Oh yeah, and if you sucked at PS there was always WoW.

PlanetSide is a FPSMRPG, a first of it's kind. Wildly misunderstud by UT and Quake3 migrants, everyone thought it would be all common pool weapons and a 5000 player FPS server. Little did they know that common knowledge, common sense, and a little bit of tactical analysis was needed to actually win. Many players whined and only a few good players remained.
All the TR players whine about the Jackhammer, but that's cause it's a point and click instant kill. All the NC whine about the stryker rocket, but that's because it's too easy to kill whith, and all the VS whine about their magriders because they can't run over every soldier on the field anymore because physics were implimented on an anti-gravitational hovertank with an oversized hitbox. Go figure.

A MMoFPS or Massivly Multiplayer Online First person shooter. *phew*

Basically, the concept is to use tactics to take control of the planet of Auraxis. You choose which Empire out of three to join.
Terran Republic: We blow shit up. (Inaccurate but fast rate of fire weaponry)
New Conglomerate: Vive la rebellion. (Powerful weaponry but innacurate and not as fast as TR)
Vanu Soverignty: Pzzzaappp! (Laser weaponry, 'nuff said).

A great Online FPS that features thousands of people at one time..however, unless you got a beefy computer (1 GB RAM and 128 MB graphics card) for a game that has PS2 graphics it will be VERY LAGGY! In that sense..the game is oxymoron when it comes to its requirements and you need better hardware than it recommends.
I got 512MB RAM and 64MB graphics card...its the recommended requirements BUT I LAG LIKE SHIT!!

A term used by space travelers, originally in science fiction but now by actual astronauts, to designate things that happen down on the planet as opposed to things that happen in space.
It's only used for bondage planetside, but here, you need velcro even for vanilla sex to keep your partner from drifting away from you.
