BF2, Halo etc etc where the roots were drawn.

BF2 and others arent exactly like Tribes, its just that so much of what exists in these games were originally brought to the mulitplayer gaming world through many of the great gameplay ideas in Tribes. And even with that, what many dont get is that Tribes gameplay is so damn unique because of the physics of motion, the speed of play on vast maps, and the great unintended discovery of Tribes jump skiing and capping routes. Nothing compares even today. Its not the typical guy walking around with a machine gun or sniper rifle trying to trigger capture points etc or simply overtake a base. There is soo much more.

I would say things like BF2142 Titan mode would remind one a bit of Tribes and the vast floating bases.
