GOLDENEYE 007 all the way

IMO Goldeneye is an overrated shooter and hasn't held up at all, to me all it was , was those old 2.5d shooters only less complex and in souped up 64 bit graphics, coupled with the most backwards, awkward control scheme ever, great for it's time ,

But its influence on the genre is questionable compared to the likes of Doom, System Shock, Half-Life 1-2 (why that isnt on the list is beyond me)or even Halo.

I'd say Goldeneye definitely had more impact on the FPS genre than the games you listed. Sure, it might be outdated nowadays, but Goldeneye was revolutionary at the time of its release. Not only did it prove FPSs can work on consoles (and that they didn't have to be half-assed ports from PC), but it also introduced many gamers to things that were rarely seen in video games at that time (zoom in snipers, AI enemies who patrolled and strategized, dual wielding weapons, varied multiplayer modes, a 'proper' 3D world, etc).

Doom might have brought FPS games into the mainstream, but Goldeneye proved that console FPS games can work.

I'd take Halo and Left4Dead off that list and replace them with Deus Ex and Half Life.

I have fond memories of UT, shame the series has never matched the awesomeness of the first one since :(

If Battlefield 2 (Or even 1942!) can't nudge one of those 5 out (only 2 that it could IMO) it's definitely number 6. And where is counter strike? And like others said, Half-Life?

Hate to say it, but multiplayer aside to a point, COD4 was one of the most epic single player FPS's of any generation. Shame it didn't continue that way. It may be number 7-8ish.

Left 4 dead would not be in my top 5.
