Default Top Competitive PC FPS

What is the top competitive PC FPS in the world right now? I will have a lot of free time this summer and I always enjoy trying to get really good at FPS games. They don't require as much time investment to get good as RTS games and just playing them is a lot less of an emotional investment too. I used to play warcraft 3 religiously, like many of you, from age 14 onward until it died and I got pretty good at it. I'm 24 now. I tried to get into starcraft 2 but I found the time investment was simply too high for my age. It is just too much to get into. I requires full time dedication and combined with the fact that I have started getting carpal tunnel syndrome, probably from all my time playing WC3, I just want to get competitive at another game. FPS's at the highest levels require far less apm on your mouse hand than sc2 and I find them overall more enjoyable for the casual gamer.

Anyway, sorry for my rambling. What is THE fps people play in international tournaments, online, etc.?

Probably Call of duty. No clue if CSS:Source or 1.6 have any tournaments anymore, but i'd imagine they are few and far between.

So strategy games pretty much are dominating the respect of the esports scene? It seems that way. I did a little googling of the most popular tournaments like ESWC and WCG and it seems the biggest representation is in starcraft, dota, and Counter Strike 1.6 (amazingly still) and Source.

CS and quake. Battlefield and COD are jokes of games in a competitive sense. Fun to blow shit up and play with a bunch of really imbalanced guns, but its nothing to take pride in. That being said, at the point in my life I'm at, I'd take Battlefield and COD over CS any day ^^ fuck da stress~
