Op-FP is amazing, but not on the graphics side - it's my GOTY so far (but I haven't played Max Payne as it's getting mixed reviews).
I agree that Kingpin's graphics are brilliant in that they're not spectacular - Kingpin contains the single most realilistic place I've ever seen in a computer game - the shed with the moterbike in level 2. A fairly unimportant room really (ok, it's the end level, but it's still fairly unimportant), but still amazingly real - for me anyway
I wasn't that impressed by Halflife - I still don't know what the big deal is. FPS games rank like this for me:
Graphics: Quake 3
Plot: Deus Ex
Multiplayer: Quake 1 (just typing that gives me adrenaline (or maybe it's the last minute of Gladiator soundtrack song 6
Singleplayer: Deus Ex (largely because of plot)
Kingping wasn't a very good game, but the texture (and for the earlier levels, level design) was exemplary to the genre. Soldier of Fortune is much underrated - people put it in Kingpin's area because of it's body part removal, but it's actually a great game, just behind Deus Ex and NOLF for single player.
Geez, that must be nearly 3 cents
