CoD for sure
Yeah, it's a great series alright!
I puked when I saw COD and Halo were higher than Half-Life and Unreal Tournament
Why would you puke, they're both amazing series and higher in the list that UT and Half Life
Saying those two beat Half-Life and UT is like saying Soulja Boy beats Chopin
F**k yeah! MOH:AA best fps of all time... *^*[BSS]*^* Best clan in the whole entire game
i wont disagree
Good article, but I'm unsure of the last two - Quake should have been in there.
you can't have "top fps" and "of all time" in the same sentence without mentioning at least 1 id game, lol.
I'd trade Medal for Battlefield in a heartbeat. And honestly, anyone who challenges Halo's place in this list has no clue. That's like saying Dragon Quest isn't in the list of all time top RPGs. Or Battlestar Galactica isn't in the list of top sci-fi TV shows. Or Lasagna isn't in the list of top Italian food. SURE you can find something "better" and even have a defensible position, but you're in denial if you think it's not a highly significant development in the history of First Person Shooters.
Quake is the godfather of the modern shooters. This list is MOOT
OWNED - you have a serious problem LoL
Hey look it's a casual generic top 5 about an overdone genre.
So the game that basically redefiened online FPS's (1942) isn't on that list instead as number 1 we get a twitch shooter which is stupidily balanced and stupidily easy followed by another floaty game... hopefully in 10 generations we'll still remember what FPS's destroyed singleplayer PC games and not these... pretenders.
1) Goldeneye 007 2) Quake 3 3) CoD4 4) UT2004 5) Halo CE Yeah, those aren't series, but for FPS FUN that's where my time has sat!
Goldeneye? Sure it was a great game, but I dont think that makes up for the rest of the poor Bond games. This is series remember, not individual games.
Who said he was talking about the whole 007 series?
I participated in a Goldeneye tournament at PAX and I realized just how poorly that game aged. I mean... seriously. I won't argue it was an important milestone in gaming history... but not FPS at its best by a long shot.
Hey look its a sad user who criticizes an article with his worthless opinion :D
1 - UT2004 2 - Half-Life 3 - Timesplitters 2 4 - Goldeneye 64 5 - Gmod
"Top 5 FPS SERIES" not top 5 FPS games.
half life (including mods like team fortress and counter-strike) cod (best of world war) halo (best sci-fi action) unreal/quake tie (best twich shooter) battlefield (large expansive environment, and some of the funniest writing) runner up franchises. 'shock' franchise (bioshock/system shock 1/2), mass effect and marathon. goldeneye, deus ex, perfect dark don't make up for their franchise history but are still amazing games.
I wanted to include Battlefield, and it is the unofficial No. 6 - but these five games are better - as simple as that!
Halo above half life must have been a 12 year old who wrote this. You keep saying that next time keep your opinion to yourself pls. If you think cod is good then i am sorry. I pity you cause big red 1 and the rest of the crap treyarch made aren't in no way contender for best fps and you cant ignore those cause its about series and they are part of that. Halo well no words for that made me cry a little.
hell to the no. half life is the best, no questions asked. i would even put deus ex, system shock, and quake on there too. obviously a modern gamer to put halo and cod at the top. EDIT: how could i have forgotten battlefield!?!?
crappy list i can make a beter one with games from before 2000 only
Well then go for it. You're really getting your point across by making a sleazy comment on a great article. Write your own, send me the link and I'll leave a stupid comment on your article calling it stupid - at least mine will be true. Anyway, explain to me why you would fill a list with games before 2000? How can you add in games with bad graphics, gameplay ect.? Get your facts right
games that created FPS. Period, Real FPS not autoaim bullcrap with carebear colours You put COD, Halo in list yet you do not name Quake 3 or Countr-Strike
Halo above Half-Life? No Battlefield? Really?
for me half life series is just plain awesome... halo is just too much freaking fun and cod is just bad ass intense... moh was pretty damn good in its day, before cod 1 and united offensive came out... pacific assault is still my fav but allied assualt put it on the map ... it had saving private ryan written all over it
but let's face it, KZ2 is what pretty much makes the series, and that's only game. Half Life deserves to be #1 for sure. Counter Strike and Crysis are some other great FPS's.
Isn't that thumbnail from Joint Operations: Thyphoon Rising? Whats that got to do with the list? Hardly the most shining example of an FPS graphically or gameplaywise, still not a bad MMOFPS though.
1. Halo 2. Unreal 3. COD 4. Quake 5. Battlefield
Replace Halo with Half-Life and you've got a winner.
The Half-Life series should be #1 You know what? I had a really fun time playing the No One Lives Forever series. I wish they'd make a 3rd title!
Agreed. Half-Life + mods = BEASTLY!
#1. Half Life #2. Quake #3. UT #4. Battlefield #5. Halo CoD pales in comparison to the Battlefield series. CoD doesnt even come close. 1 good game in a series and it took til the 4th one to really put it on the map as a great MP game. sorry, no dice.
dude, all sites have theyr own opinion about wich games are teh best out there dont try to fight with those articles lol
I agree that Halflife is brilliant at what it does but it's more a story experience game than a sheer all out gun fun like Halo - the combat is ultimately the same each time in HL and mostly all other fps
1. Half-Life 2. Unreal Tournament 3. Call of Duty ... ...
1. Call of Duty 2. Halo *closes tab*
uhhh where is battlefield and the game that started it all : Counter Strike... this article fails harder than Haze... P.S im a Playstation fan so i can say Haze was a disappointment..
But even if Half Life 2 is a good series, CoD is better - it reinvents itself with every game and keeps getting better
