This week Gamer Horizon gets their violence on and list The Top 5: First-person shooters of all time.
Doom Duke Nukem Counter Strike COD 4 Unreal Tournament ....My five would be those....though typically an RPG fanatic, played those games for years....
System Shock 2 Half-Life Halo CE Goldeneye Red Faction
Golden eye, has to be on anyone's list, of all time,. That's the one, that started it all,, split screen glory.
Firstly, I never owned an N64. Secondly, I'm not interested in reverence. It's a list about games we enjoyed the most, not which ones are the most important to the genre.
In my case, it is one of the First Person Shooters I enjoyed the most. ;) (That's because it's an awesome game!)
That's because you love Nintendo!
Doom Quake Half-Life Halo CoD4
But my favs are Halo 2, Timesplitters and Red Faction.
Halo 2 Unreal Tournament Doom Counter Strike and Return to Castle Wolfenstein
Unreal Tournament BF1942 RTCW Doom Duke Nukem 3D
Perfect Dark 64
Lol at Counter-Strike only being on 1 persons list.
Only one person liked it enough to put it on their list. Why is that funny?
That's actually part of why we have 5 separate lists. It's interesting to see the differing opinions. Sometimes we end up with similar lists, but they're usually drastically different. But as the one person who listed Counter-strike, I agree... lol.
Counter-Strike was just way too iconic to not be on at least 3/5 of the lists.
I had a Mac. We never had CounterStrike. But also, Marathon was better than anything at the time.
my list Halo Halo Halo Halo Halo
Chris disappointing me. The only thing I liked gameplay wise from Halo 4 was the thrusterpack and hard light shield. Everything else they did with ordinance, perks, and this whole class creation system just to modernize the game to the 100 other FPS that are doing the same thing. At least they kept away from the ADS so its kind of like Halo there. Sadly Vehicles are sort of useless if you push up since everyone has access to there scooty puff junior 3 billion dollar vehicle disabling device.
Original Bioshock for me. Opening scene and story made me sh*t my pants
Doom Half Life 2 unreal tournament "the first one ofc" golden eye
TimeSplitters 2 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
1. Halo 2 2. Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare 3. Bioshock 4. Halo Combat Evolved 4. Timesplitters Future Perfect
Get Halo out of here. Overrated. Top 5: Doom (took everyone by surprise in such a way that has never been matched), Wolfenstein 3D (the first widely successful FPS and Doom's daddy), the original Call of Duty (look what it spawned, though back then it actually respected the material), Battlefield 2 (most ambitious and successful PvP battlefield action game to that point, and in some ways still hasn't been surpassed), Quake 2 (online mods for this game were epic). Edit: System Shock 2 (pure atmosphere) and Goldeneye (first really great split screen console FPS) maybe fit somewhere in there.
No one's list has Marathon on it, other than mine. It is hard not to reply to everyone and shout "MARATHON" a lot. Or hell, Pathways Into Darkness, which released before most of you were born.
