There's lots of different styles, from just a chest rig, to a little crossdraw vest, to a thin plate carrier, to a thicker kevlar-vest style (for lack of a better way to describe it), to a full blown, padded-out, plate carrier, like a CIRAS.

Try out different ones, and see how your mobility is, how comfortable it is, how good the stitching is, etc. If you're going to be playing a lot of indoor, a simple and maneuverable chest rig might be all you want. If you're going to be outdoor in the winter, you might enjoy the added warmth of a thicker plate carrier.

Actually in a CQB or indoor (read URBAN) area you want the plate carrier (but chest rigs aren't bad cause BB's don't actually kill you) and you want the lighter chest rigs for outdoor (read forest).
2 Great threads for your pleasure!

Remember K-factor, if your going prone a plate carriers extra few inches make it harder to go prone.
