15 First Person Shooters/Titles to Look Forward to in 2014

If you're a fan of the first person genre than 2014 may be the year for you. There's bound to be something to tickle your fancy. (Halo 5: Guardians, PC, PS3, PS4, TitanFall, Wolfenstein: The New Order, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Most interesting is Titanfall.... then Thief, Destiny and Halo (if i had a X1).

Curious about Lichdom.

Im suprised that nobody said Dying light.

Is it a core shooter? I thought it was more FP Action like Dead Island (having guns, but not the core of the game). It's on the list though.

Personally, I'm looking forward to stuff other than shooters. I have 4 shooters with my PS4 already, and it's just time for the genre to take a step down... Not go away, but just slow it down.

The only ones that interest me are Destiny and Halo on the list. Not on the list Planetside 2 and Star Wars Battlefront.

Lichdom looks great and I want it!

always looking forward to a new Halo

Sega needs to just Give the ALien license to the makers of Natural Selection and let them resurrect the Alien Franchise.
Gamer1982  +   808d ago
Halo FPS wont be out until 2015. There is no way it will hit 2014 you got that top down Halo in 2014 that's it. Halo games take a good few years to develop and this one will too especially on a new engine and this time it won't be using bungies engine unless upscaled. So its either gonna be a heavy mess (resource wise) or something special from 343. Time will tell.
Gabenbrah  +   807d ago
They already confirmed a new Halo game is coming in 2014 and considering that 343i are now a 400+ development studio and they planned the new Halo trilogy years ago and have the next 10 years of Halo planned out, I think they'll be fine, especially with the Xbox One considering how much easier it is to develop for than the Xbox 360.
Bolts-N-Rays1109  +   808d ago
Titanfall, Destiny, and Halo. I need you.

Destiny and thief.
CrossingEden  +   808d ago
Thief is not a first person shooter.
123pol  +   808d ago
you have bow and arrows.. you shoot arrows with the bow.
and the game is in first person...
so therefore its a first person shooter
CrossingEden  +   808d ago
That's like saying that dishonored is a first person shooter or that MGS3 is a first person shooter, just because they have the mechanic to shoot from first person DOESN'T mean that they are first person shooters. Going by your logic skyrim is a first person shooter, and before you say it is, NO it's not.
fardan85  +   808d ago
I would say Destiny.
It looks really big with lots of contents, crazy weapon upgrades, Impressive graphics for what it tries to do, big worlds to explore.
If it has offline split screen co-op for the campaign then I will probably get it on release.
Hanso  +   808d ago
sorry destiny is a always online game
we cant play it offline.
fardan85  +   808d ago
First TitanFall, now Destiny.
Crossing it from my anticipated games.

The rest can piss off, as I hate first person shooters.

titanfall for pc
thief for ps4 or pc

iamnsuperman  +   808d ago
Ah no. Someone disagrees with someone saying Halo and so uses the disagree button. What a bunch of trolls /s

Seriously does it really matter that much. There are people out their who don't like Halo (like there are people out there that don't like COD, Uncharted, Super Mario Galaxy.... )


I do hope that was sarcasm. The idea of the disagree button is to disagree with someone's choice/opinion (the definition of disagreeing). It isn't some personal vendetta

It's pathetic that Sony fanboys can't even accept other gamers opinions, have to disagree because it offends them. Nothing I hate more than fanboys and corporate slaves, not true gamers in my eyes.

Why does it matter that I enjoy Halo, I don't give a crap if you enjoy Uncharted, CoD or Killzone. Grow up fanboys, you're the cancer of this industry.

HarryMasonHerpderp  +   807d ago
I haven't enjoyed a Halo game since Halo 2.
I've more than had my fill of that series.
Although I will still keep my eye open on the new one as long as they really mix things up and keep it fresh.
More excited about Destiny to be honest, the worlds in that game look amazing.

"It's pathetic that Sony fanboys can't even accept other gamers opinions"

EXACTLY. We're NOT oversaturated with FPS. It's just more than the 6th Generation.
Ragthorn  +   808d ago
There are many good time ahead gamers, Torment: Tides of Numenara, Wasteland 2, and Project Eternity. These are all spirtitual successors to in the same order; Planescare Torment, Wasteland (Wasteland Classic on Steam), and Project Eternity is a spiritual successor to Planescape, Icewind Dale, and Baldur's Gate in terms of mechanics. Star Citizen is coming out (hopefully) in late 2014. A lot of games such as Witcher 3, Dragon Age Inquisition, Guns of Icarus Online Adventure Mode, Titanfall, Destiny, The Division, Dark Souls II, The Evil Within, Dying Light, Project CARS, Might and Magic X: Legacy (Early Access now I believe on Steam), Rime, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, Divinity: Original Sin, Transistor, Mad Max, and many more that I am REALLY EXCITED FOR. These games are the ones I am really excited for next year. Great times ahead indeed, and especially for the old-school RPG gamer lovers like myself. I also would like an announcement from Piranha Bytes themselves on a new Gothic game that will be a direct sequel to either 2 or 3! (I really hope it does happen)
EXVirtual  +   808d ago
I agree to an extent, yet Destiny looks pretty awesome to me.

I think that we'll be getting a more diverse library of games next-gen.

The list that IHassounah provided is full of games that aren't FPS', from platformers to RPG's. That's what's been announced this year. Imagine the amount of games we'll have to choose from in 2-4 years.
I have a huge amount of game's I'm looking forward to. My wallet is going to be an empty void by the end of this gen.

Halo 5 is looking to be amazing , I'm also excited for Titanfall and Destiny, also excited for many others
hellzsupernova  +   808d ago
What have you seen of it? Honestly we saw a small teaser trailer. You cannot base anything off of that.

However I'm sure it will be more halo which is a good thing.
IHassounah  +   808d ago
Actually I saw something more that I could talk about , I hope I don't die but yeah :

* Halo 5 is running stable 60 fps and 1080p
* Halo 5 is an open world game that makes you actually jump in a ship and move to new planets to progress in the story
* Halo 5 is gonna have 64 player in online multiplayer
* Halo 5 will have over 5000 items to use in Forge
* Halo 5 is graphically looking good and eventually they used the full potential of ternary eSRAM
* Halo 5 is having many weapons to use from
* Halo 5 is having new type of enemies
* Halo 5 is having huge detailed environments
* Halo 5 is being developed by 343 Industries

Now we went to the other side of 343 Industries :

They showed us a new IP but it's actually called 82DX0 for now , it isn't exactly Halo type but it's having amazing designs and beautiful environments, and it's being developed with the help of Black Tusk Studios

Also CBOAT knows this as he was actually there behind the stages with us

IHassounah  +   808d ago
Yeah you got me man , I made this up but these things were confirmed and other things were rumored and tere is things that I actually made up so :

* Halo 5 will run 60 fps and 1080p (confirmed)
* Halo 5 is an open world (rumored from CBOAT)
* Halo 5 = 64 players (Made Up)
* Halo 5 = 5k items (made up)
* Halo 5 = many weapons (expected)
* Halo 5 = new enemy type (expected)
* Halo 5 = detailed environments (maybe ???)
* Halo 5 = 343 Industries (this is literally clear ,lol)
* The new IP is actually confirmed , here is a link :

I will put money on it that halo 5 is not an open world game!
And I seriously doubt a 64 player multiplayer.

But hey you've seen it right.

Halo 4 was amazing... Like every Halo before that.
And the graphics of Halo 4 made by 343 studious won numerous graphics of the year awards. Not even a ps3 exclusive could touch it that year.

But.... You must be a Sony kid like 99% of the trolls on this site.

So troll along kid. You should go play in traffic

Dude i enjoyed halo4...damn all my pals enjoyed that game...that and titanfall are my most anticipated. Need to see more about destiny though and hope there is a gow coming soon.
u got owned  +   808d ago

Halo 4 was ok, but it did more bad to the franchise that it did good. Just a look at how many people are playing it right now will give you an idea. That and the fact that the XBO cant even do 1080p at 60 FPS, hmmm I don't know... Im just a bit skeptical. Time will tell.
christocolus  +   808d ago

What has 1080p 60 fps got to do with making halo5 a great game? So a a game will only look nice and play good when it is 1080p? Does the article even mention res? Titanfall is a great fps and no one is complaining about it not being 1080p..and where did you read that the console wasnt capable of doing 1080p/60fps..not that i care really but why does it bother you guys more than those who actually want one? if you dont like the xbx one then dont get it but allow those getting it comment freely.

FrostyZipper  +   808d ago
I still don't know quite what to think about Titanfall. While I certainly like the idea and the presentation, it still looks a bit too much like CoD with mech suits to me. Maybe I'll change my opinion of it if I actually give it a whirl, maybe not, guess I'll have to wait to try it at a friend's.

Otherwise, Dying Light (provided they smooth out the melee combat, which, let's face it, didn't work all that well in Dead Island), Destiny, Wolfenstein and Daylight are the only ones I've really got any vested interest in, and I've already got Planetside 2.

And for the love of God people stop assuming that everyone who doesn't like Halo = Sony fanboys. I know plenty who are buying an Xbox One who have no intention of getting Halo 5 and as far as I'm personally concerned, the only good Halo was the first game (landing on Halo after escaping the Pillar and exploring that huge map? Fucking glorious).

Ragthorn  +   808d ago
PlanetSide 2 is already out though. Its pretty fun, just I wish I could get everything in the game easier. Certs are not hard to get, it is 2 kills for one cert, but most of the stuff is around 250, 500, or 1000 certs to get. Which frankly, I don't have time to get, but it is still a relatively fun game.
HappyWithOneBubble  +   808d ago
I'm not really into none of these FPS right now. MGS5, inFamous, MLB the Show 14, and Drive Club is the main games I want next year. BF4 and KZSF is enough of FPS action for me through 2014.

Ragthorn  +   808d ago
Destiny and Titanfall are my most anticipated Shooters. Tbh I am done with Halo, I have finished Halo 1 to Halo Reach (Halo 3 ODST aswell, I loved that game!) I felt like Master Chief's story finished at 3 imo, and I wanted him to finally rest. I have had so much fun with Halo back in the day, and I even remember playing splitscreen on I think Blood Gulch? I want those memories reignited by Bungie in Destiny, and create those awesome memories again. I trust Bungie to impress me with this, I am really hyped.
specialguest  +   808d ago
Destiny is what I look forward to most. Mark my word, it will be fps GOTY. This game is a very meaty content game. See this video:

heres why I'm excited:
- highly customizable
- open world with wide areas to explore
- real-time dynamic lighting/shadow
- real-time NIGHT/DAY and WEATHER CHANGE!!
- guaranteed superb multiplayer match mode(because it's from Bungie)
- not just gunplay only, but also the use of awesome melee type powers

Don't take this the wrong way, all these games look awesome and I'm not trying to bash any games out of their place here, but I'm surprised Watch_Dogs isn't on that list. There was a gigantic uproar when it was delayed back in October. It seems amazing that it isn't a normal FPS, how you can be stealthy and hack and stuff. Other than that, Destiny looks pretty awesome. If it comes out on PC I'll probably get it, since i'm probably not getting a PS4 or X1. (Don't take that the wrong way either, both are cool consoles, I just like gaming on the PC using gamepads n' stoof.)
specialguest  +   808d ago
Maybe...just maybe because Watch Dog is not a First Person Shooter? I'm sure you realized that right? Lol
