8BitChimp says, "Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare launched this week, so this time, we’re taking a look at some of our favorite first person shooters of all time! I asked the staff, “What’s the best first person shooter you’ve ever played?"
lots and lots, there is no way i can t decide, impossible but i'll try listing FPS shooters into two groups, the top dogs in FPS imo are Goldeneye, Perfect Dark,Doom series, Quake 1 and 2, Duke nukem, Half Life series, Halo series(1 to 3), bioshock 1 and infinite, system shock (didn't play it but i know it's legendary) CoD4/MW2, Turok 1 and 2 then there is the second best FPS list of games, games like Time Splitter series, Titanfall, The world is not enough (N64 version), Killzone 2, Battlefield bad company 2, BF3, black ops series, Turok 3, Resistance series (especially 1 and 3),
It is Halo. It continually tends to hold up against the test of time. I love Goldeneye/Half-Life, and all the other ones but Goldeneye chugs along at such a slow frame rate, Half-Life is now just boring... don't get me wrong those games were fantastic at the time and I'll always love them but Halo is the game that is still every bit as good today as it was 13 years ago. No other FPS does that.
C0D4 is the best overall when you factor in sales, metascore, and what it brought to the shooter genre.
Cough cough halo. Can't even think of anything that compares. Cod 4 comes close.
As far as competitive shooters go? It comes down to Counter Strike / Halo / Quake. The FPS market is over saturated and the competitive part of it is pretty dead. Counter Strike Source and GO were nothing compared to the original back in the day. Quake was another ID pride game. Still one of the best ways to test who's the fastest in an FPS among friends. But currently Halo is the best FPS for all your needs. Strong story/lore behind it Amazing campaign experience Strong co-operative experience... Spartan Ops/4 Player Co-op Campaign/Firefight Strong Competitive experience... Halo 2 Arena style (H5 will be having a similar treatment) Narrative outside of the games... Books/Live action series/Animated series/Etc... Halo will always be king when it comes to FPS, especially since CoD has died... Dice has taken over Battlefront. (Not the best team for it) Rares best devs are scattered, and only Kenn Lobb is committed to bringing their best games back. ID after the Bethesda acquisition is currently on low key mode.
Too many to name. There just can't be one.
For me in no order. 1.SWBF2 2.Goldeneye 3.Timesplitters 4.Cod2 5.Perfect Dark 6.Turok 3 7.BC2 8.Killzone 2 9.Socom 2
My 2 are Bioshock and Killzone 2.
Single player goes to Halo 4. I have never found myself caring about the characters and story in an fps quite like I did playing through Halo 4. Multiplayer goes to BFBC 2. Dice managed to bottle lightning with the MP of BC2; a feat they have yet to repeat.
There are too many subgenres within the FPS genre to say, really. For instance, comparing Unreal Tournament 2004 and Halo: Combat Evolved makes no sense. My personal favorites are: - Unreal Tournament 1/03/04/III - Half-Life 2 - Portal 1/2 - Counter-Strike (Classic or Source) - Tribes 2 - Bioshock 1/Infinite - F.E.A.R. (the multi-player portion was F.E.A.R. Combat) - Return to Castle Wolfenstein - Battlefield 1942/2/Bad Company/Bad Company 2 - Resistance 1/3 - Killzone 2/3 - Metroid Prime 3: Corruption - Timesplitters (All) - Prey - The Darkness - No One Lives Forever - Call Of Duty 1/2/MW/MW2 - SWAT 4 - Crysis - GoldenEye - Borderlands 1/2 - Fallout 3? Does that count? Haha - PayDay 1/2 - S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl - Killing Floor - PlanetSide 2
My personal favorites are Halo 2 and Timesplitters 2. My two bros and I would split screen the crap out of those games. God the memories...
Titanfall, so much fun and that one more go factor. But everyone has their own preference so the best fps is whatever we like.
Modern warfare really did it for me, the battlefield b/c series was really great. Halo 3 coop was perfection tons of fun. I don't know how people left off left 4 dead that game was killer, loved it on PC.
GTA V with first person, not played it yet but that.
Oh, this is TOO easy...halo. I am an FPS guy..played everything from wolfenstein to goldeneye to half life/CS (which I still play on PC), and halo is the one that has stood the test of time better than any other, in terms of pure gameplay mechanics, IMHO.
Killzone 2/3/sf I still indulge to get my "fix".
Half-Life(personal favorite) Unreal Half-Life 2 Call of Duty 1-2-MW Medal of Honor: Allied Assault Borderlands 1/2 S.T.A.L.K.E.R(SoC-CoP) No One Lives Forever F.E.A.R Return to Castle Wolfenstein Far Cry 1(PC) Crysis Metro(2033-LL) Halo series Wolfenstein: The New Order Singularity
