Top Ten FPS Games of All Time

The first-person shooter genre is massively popular and has a huge and loyal fan base committed to spending hours in virtual environments blowing each other to smithereens. There’s nothing quite like the adrenaline soaked chaos of a good FPS session. If it goes well it can be better than a course of anger management, if it goes badly then that’s what you’ll need to recover. There have been loads of great first-person shooters over the years but which are the best?

where's Half life 2? first one was good, but second for me was even better

Setimerenptah1738d ago

it's mentioned, I agree HL2 was awesome, just not including more than one from the same series

wallis1737d ago

I think hl2 should swap out with wolfenstein. Wolf and Doom are very close siblings and in a list with only 10 places it seems odd to have them occupy 2 places while half life gets one mention. Wolfenstein is closer to Doom in gameplay and graphics (story hardly matters) than hl1 is to hl2 in just about any department - graphics, story or gameplay.

I think the only change I'd make is either far cry 1 or stalker would make it on here. Probably stalker would be the most likely because I consider it an underrated classic. Beautiful graphics, tough but fun gunplay, and of course a superb open and living world. Maybe also fear 1 but saying that the current list is pretty good.

Half-Life 2 is easily the best FPS game of all time...maybe the best game. I can't believe AvP is on this list. Or COD. both are great games, but definitely not top 10. and uh...where is goldeneye?

im_right1737d ago

Yes Half-Life 2 is the best FPS ever, the online is great to and best of all free lol. :)

RedDead1736d ago (Edited 1736d ago )

I ****ing love Avp2 though. I'd repalce Avp with Avp2, and stick Jedi knights(either Academy or Outcast) in there too

STONEY41736d ago (Edited 1736d ago )

I'd go as far as to say that AvP2 is one of my top 10 games of all time, period. Single-player was great, multiplayer was amazing and thriving, until the Sierra-Activision merge happened and Activision decided to shut down master servers of "non-essential" games. AvP2 and the Tribes games being on the list.

I seriously played AvP2s multiplayer nearly every week from 2001-2008. That's how good it was.

vortis1736d ago

After playing HL2 again, it was okay but it was mostly the story and atmosphere that carried it. The gunplay isn't quite as appealing as I once remembered.

I think Perfect Dark probably deserves a nod as well given that it did everything GoldenEye did but better. Strangely it didn't age that bad with time.

My top three (in no particular order).

- Black
- Timesplitters: Future Perfect
- Urban Chaos: Riot Response

I've played those three for more time than I'd like to admit. If you haven't played one of them, you owe it to yourself to check 'em out.

JoeReno1736d ago

Black was awesome. Why nothing more was done with that IP I don't understand.

otherZinc1736d ago

Only change should be:
Rainbow Six:Vegas or Vegas 2 in for Alien vs Predator.

You read my mind Zen. Bubz for you dude.

karlowma1737d ago

TimeSplitters 2 would be on my list, but I can't argue with this one.

bozebo1737d ago (Edited 1737d ago )

Yeah it's a good list. But TS needs a mention. (I'd sort of place it in the same series as PD and Goldeneye)

TBH I would have to make it a top 20 list, if I was making one myself, to be able to give worthy mentions to enough great FPSs.

thedude441736d ago

timesplitters is great!


socom confrontation

dontbhatin1736d ago

I'm sure thedude44 just failed miserably at attempting to troll at ps3 shooters.

and socom confrontation is a TPS.....

the top ten most rehashed article ideas of all time

lorianguy1737d ago

You appear to be missing Star Wars: Battlefront.

Or does that not count because it could also be played in 3rd person?

Prototype1737d ago

replace CoD with Goldeneye 007, and add Perfect Dark as an honorable mention

SJPFTW1737d ago (Edited 1737d ago )

Call of Duty 1, 2 and 4 were better games than goldeneye

RememberThe3571737d ago

You got slapped with disagrees but your right, Goldeye is purely nostalgia at this point. But holy shit it was fun back in the day!
