Top 5 First-Person Shooters

"The first person shooter genre has gotten pretty stale over the past few years, with every game trying to be exactly like Call of Duty, but still being stomped on by it. Years ago, FPS games were so varied and plentiful that you could always pick one up and pretty much count on it being an excellent experience. So I’ve decided to make this list of my personal Top 5 first-person shooters so remember the heyday of the genre." (Call of Duty: Black Ops, Doom, Goldeneye, PC, Perfect Dark, PS3, TimeSplitters, Xbox 360)

TimeSplitters 2 and Future Perfect are amazing
Derekvinyard13  +   1241d ago
got that right.
BitbyDeath  +   1241d ago
TimeSplitters is the only one i'd agree with on his list.

Doom 2 should've gotten in over Doom 1 IMO there were quite a few notable improvements and lets not forget the double barrel shotgun!
Eyeco  +   1241d ago
It's a shame they cancelled number 4 I spent countless hours on Future Perfect I had good times with that game
jocomat9  +   1241d ago
It technically wasn't cancelled, it was put on hold by Cryteck after they picked it up from the fallen free radical (now Cryteck UK). But I just saw on youtube, apparently a trusted source got a hand on a working demo, and it is going to be released on PS4 and the other next gen consoles.


Can't frigging wait for number 4!

I loved Kong the video game. One of the best FPS experience I had even though it's based off the movie. :P

You really like COD don't you? My personal favorite series is Timesplitters. I remember the times of playing as a monkey.
ShottySnipa417  +   1241d ago
Not sure if trolling, or CoD kid.
BraveToaster  +   1241d ago
I really hope he's a troll. Every single comment of his I have seen has been completely retarded.
h311rais3r  +   1241d ago
Nah he's just a CoD kid. More than likely 10-16 years old and never played a game until cod4.
cpayne93  +   1241d ago
Not suprising considering you said call of duty was a far better series than the metal gear solid series...

Edit: Looking at the way you numbered it, you think every cod got better with each installment. Really???

You do realize MGS isn't a first person shooter let alone a shooter. That said every COD game has been critically acclaimed and has an aggregate score of 80+, thus, holding the opinion the the last five CODs are personally the best fps isn't without substance (although it can be considered a bit shallow).

Anyway my personal favorites:

1. COD4: Modern Warfare
2. Resistance: Fall of Man
3. Deus Ex: HR
4. Bioshock
5. Halo 3

gravelord, I respect your bravery to admit that, but there has to be a reason for your one bubble.
Hicken  +   1241d ago
The strangest thing is that someone AGREED with you. No, not strange. Sad. Sad for the world.
Kyosuke_Sanada  +   1241d ago
No Quake or Unreal but Black Ops make the cut? You gotta be kidding me.....
Ducky  +   1241d ago
Also missing HalfLife, SystemShock2 (or Bioshock), DeusEx... and maybe 8 other franchises. =/
InTheLab  +   1241d ago
Black Ops? Oh well.

Don't know about top 5 but I really enjoyed Red Faction...
enfestid  +   1241d ago
I'm sorry, but this list is absolutely horrible. No Half-Life games? No BioShock? No Unreal games? There's just so many games missing.

Wtf? Black ops but no halo? Cmon!

Honestly I would put halo, resistance, killzone, crysis, and battlefield all above blops. But that's just me.
Pintheshadows  +   1241d ago
I'd go,

1 Half Life 2
2 Deus Ex
3 System Shock 2
4 Unreal Tournament ( I actually played Quake 3 more but I have fonder memories of UT)
5 Stalker SoC
6 Painkiller (angry at myself for forgetting it)

Narrowly missing out, Quake 2 and 3, Counterstrike, Doom 2, The first Half Life, Sin (I liked it), Star Trek Elite Force 1 and 2, Republic Commando, Project IGI, Soldier of Fortune 2 and Return to Castle Wolfenstein.

I forgot Timesplitters and Goldeneye. The original Farcry and Tribes 2 and Painkiller. I forgot Jedi Knight as well as Aliens vs Predator.

I forgot all about painkiller too. That was a fantastic game that gave me tonnes of fun and carnage
glennco  +   1241d ago
i'm sorry but are these in regards to sales? bacause CoD is not even close in gameplay unless you like linear hand holding interactive movie style fps and dumbed down multiplayer. i take it this guy doesn't actually play many games.

even as an opinion piece this list is a complete joke.
pandehz  +   1241d ago
Half Life 2 and its Episodes are my fav.
BraveToaster  +   1241d ago
Uh, this list is OK.
I don't get why they would include Goldeneye when Perfect Dark is pretty much a complete upgrade from it.
Also Black Ops doesn't deserve to be on a list of Top 100 First Person Shooters.
GammaSix  +   1241d ago
Timesplitters is the greatest FPS series ever! I really want number 4 so bad.

Also Half life 2 is great too
Adolph Fitler  +   1240d ago
1. Timesplitters 2
2. Timesplitters
3. Timesplitters 3
4. Timesplitters 2
5. Timesplitters

That's how it go biatches. These COD's & crap are good, but they are f$#king far from being on the TS's level of sheer fun & greatness.
Best fun I've had in a fps is playing one of my mates non-stop in Timesplitters 1 deathmatches.
