Completely agree...CS should have been higher....thats it.
swap COD4 and HALO around.
Duke Nukem shouldn't be on there COD4 should be lower, the point it made about which game are you still playing now didn't apply to me. COD4 online ticks me off cos I can't play with my friends on it because its messed up. I'm playing Resistance =) My Favourite PS3 FPS, Shouldav been on the list!
you on crack there buddy...:-)
I have never played a game with such creative weapons as Resistance, replace COD4 with Halo in position, and drop Bioshock, I found the actual gameplay to be bland.
Dude resistance was a great game. Your the one on crack. I still find myself going back to that game. Hell I find myself playing resistance more than CoD4 and i've had Resistance since 06.
Hell Yeah! Definitely one of the best top 10 lists ever done. Goldeneye is hands down the BEST FPS ever. At that time my cousin was the only person I knew who had a copy, cuz my parents refused to buy it for me, so I spent weeks at a time over at his house just to play Goldeneye. lol good times.
Dang!.... for once I actually agree on one of these top ten list crap. Good to see Halo 1 which was actually the best out of the three. I was actually waiting for a Battlefield series but that game didn't really have a singleplayer and having a lot of vehicles kinda took out it being a pure FPS game.
a great list. bout time someone got one right
we all know 007 is #1
Bubbles for everyone!
that was actually an excellent list imo...only thing I would have changed would be to get Doom 3 the hell out of there, and have Doom II in its place...Doom 3 was a huge disappointment for me... I also may have switched Halo 1 for halo 2, I prefered the dual wielding/sword/weaker pistol of 2...pluse the online capabilities in 2 over 1...both had crap single player campaigns imo, so that is irrelevant...but I enjoyed Halo 2 the most because of its online... its a bold claim to have a console shooter at number 1...PC fans will cringe at the thought of that...but there is no denying the awesomeness that was, and still is, 007...
they better had done this list done right, ROFL
That guy in the video was funny as hell, "if you played as Oddjob your a b*tch". I laughted so hard when he said that. Great list tho, I thought Doom 1 or 2 should have been on there tho not Doom 3.
deus ex is the greatest FPS ever made.
I had when i watched the list. No Deus Ex, System Shock 2 or even Portal for that matter makes this list more of "The best FPS's other than BIOSHOCK that have Multiplayer" than "Top 10 FPS's ever". I'd also like to add that I don't like Half-Life 2 at all. No plot, tacked on puzzles and a (in my own opinion) lame protagonist in Gordon Freeman. But that's just my opinion as almost everyone else i've met seem to love it to bits.
@Dark General Portal is NOT an FPS.
Portal has more in common with a puzzle/platformer than a first person shooter. But i include it on the list because the perspective is indeed in first person. I include every game with a first person perspective as a first person shooter. But Portal is best described to me as a platformer/fps hybrid.
ScrewAttack's top 10. 10. BioShock 9. Doom 3 8. Half-Life 2 7. Duke Nukem 6. Counter-Strike 5. Quake 4. Wolfenstein 3D 3. Call of Duty 4 2. Halo 1. Goldeneye 007
And here's my personal top 10. 10. The Operative: No One Lives Forever 9. No One Lives Forever 2: A Spy in H.A.R.M.'s Way 8. System Shock 2 7. Starsiege Tribes 6. Quake III Arena 5. S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl 4. Half-Life 3. Half-Life 2 2. Counter-Strike 1. Deus Ex
deus ex should be #1 and isnt on the list.
but golden eye is #1 in the majority's eyes : ) its like taking a vote........who do you think would win? (its your opinion though)
they probaly wanted to please the masses. I am just mad because deus ex isnt even on the list at all. That can only mean one thing, that the person making the "best FPS ever" list hasnt even played the best FPS ever. I do/did own all the games on the list except quake and deus ex easily takes #1.
Well guess we'll see if COD 5, Killzone 2, Resistance 2, or GeOW 2 will bump someone off the top 10.
highly doubt it......and GeOW2 isnt a fps.....
COD 5: Probably not Killzone 2:Maybe (strong maybe) Resistance 2: Maybe Gear of War 2: The other dude covered that...
I guess it did say fps. My bad.
ah well pretty damn good list.... I wouldnt say that they are all in that order but...they all deserved to be mentioned. Ah goldeneye :) fav game of all time.....
and that is the original Perfect Dark. But besides that this is a really good list and Goldeneye deserves to be number one. Now if only we can get it for the XBLA and Virtual Console and then we'd be set.
most people say it's a much better game than 007 it's really shame that perfect dark zero completely sucks compared tO either 007 or pd64 RAREWARE RIP
the omission of Black=fail
No Haze????? pfftt ... BS list.. :)
Bubble for the laugh.
It's not a bad list... but it needs to be rearranged. I would agree with it more if they just turned it around the other way (although it still wouldn't be perfect).
no unreal !!!!
Doom 1/2 and Blood beat all IMO. Also, UT!!!!!!
True Real List tho! I would of added Metroid Prime 3 tho!
this list sucked... HL #8 and CS #6? No UT? and halo #2 !?!?! its good but it doesnt beat CS, HL or UT
Halo:CE was on the list, not Halo 2.
LMFAO and they said resitance was good
COD1 > COD4 HL1 > HL2 Doom 1 > Doom 3 No Deus Ex Halo in list.
except halo 2 deserves to be on the list because of what it did for console multiplayer. Even today most games cant do splitscreen multiplayetr over live with one account like it did in 2004. Deus ex deserves to be #1 no doubt tho.
Halo 1 is awesome. A game usually has to be pretty good to single handedly keep a console from failing.
SHODAN will be unhappy x)
Goldeneye has no business being number 1. It just doesn't compare to Half-Life 2 or Crysis and the N64 controller is a joke compared to the mouse/keyboard set-up. Halo better than Crysis and COD4? Not a chance. And where the hell is Call of Duty 1? Call of Duty 1 was one of if not the best FPS ever made. Call of Duty 2 was great as well.
The N64 controller was one bad ass controller and can easily handle its own compared with a mouse and keyboard. Thank GOD. Some people actually know something and see that Halo 1 is the best hands down of all three...no question. Deus X was not near good enough to be on this list. Resistance should have been on this list. It is that good of an FPS. Crysis has graphics and thats it. All in all not too bad of a list really.
Goldeneye was not that great imo. Counterstrike should definitely been higher and cod 4 much lower around number 8.
You would have to be on drugs to put Halo above Half Life, Bioshock, CoD4, Doom, or Quake.
The original Doom not being included and Halo as number 2 = PHAIL.
