Hi Boomers of The Darkside. I have always played adventure games in the past but I am now looking for a change.

I would like advice as to whether or not anyone knows of any 1st Person Shooter games whereby the whole game, including shooting, is mouse driven (by that I mean by a standard point and click mouse).

I have played the action/adventure game 'Blade Runner' several times and find the shooting part of the game to be just right for me. A right click of the mouse brought up a red cross hair sight and then left clicking would fire the hand gun.

I most definitely am not looking for anything more than a single hand gun, no rocket launchers, no grenades etc etc.

Thanks everyone

Hi ya Bernie, I don't do shooters as the only thing I manage to shoot is my feet. But I know we have some FPS fans so you should get some great recommendations. wave

Bernie,

It will be very difficult to find a good first person shooter that is point and click. Blade Runner, a game I played, if I am not mistaken was released in 1997, a lot of years ago in terms of games, and it was more like action adventure. I find the best way of switching to shooters is to start with an easy shooter and if necessary to use cheating (only available for PC), nothing to be ashamed of, something like using stabilizing wheels when learning to ride a bike.

Point and click shooters are a very, very rare breed. Although it's not a shooter, the first Witcher game - an RPG - had the option of playing with a point and click interface.

The Witcher is an excellent game, I didn't know has the point and click option. No guns though, but it could be a very good choice to start the switch to Darkside. I was once Adventure only player, went to RPGs and started some tough shooters, for these I needed to cheat many times. 2 years ago I got a PS3, no cheats then, and I can play shooters without problem now, even tough ones.

Now I play Adventure, RPG and shooters, it is worth the first effort.

Witcher 2 does not have the point and click option, but Witcher 1 does.

It would be a great one to transition to the Darkside with great characters, story and combat.

Thank you very much indeed L4L, mcc and Draclvr for your kind help. I will most certainly take a look at 'Witcher'. thumbsup wave

The first Divine Divinity was "point & click" and had a good story but would it be easy enough for a "first" action game ??

I thinks so Mad. I don't remember the battles being too difficult. A few times I had to leave someone behind and go level up more and then come back to wreck havoc. Course, once I got the scorpions in a cage, it was all over but the crying. wave

Bermag my favorite Darkside games are all the Tomb Raider games. These games use the keyboard as well as the mouse but maybe some day you will be ready to try them. wave
