Top 20 Single-Player FPS Campaigns Of All Time

Out of all the video game genres, the first person shooter or FPS may be the most ubiquitous one. Shooting at random mooks with instruments of destruction that seem as if extensions of your own person tends to be hella immersive.

The one that had the biggest impact on me was definitely Halo CE. CAN'T BELIEVE THE WRITER LEFT IT OFF THIS LIST. A travesty! :D

I think the author started playing games in the late 2000s.


Yep! HALO: CE was AMAZING! I would say DOOM and Wolfenstein: TNO for me

I think Halo impacted mp more so.

Seems like the author didn't put the games in context. Some 90's campaings are objectively worse than a lot of average modern shooters. But, they were shocking when lauched.

Doom, Deus Ex, Duke Nuken 3D, System Shock 2, Quake and others were amazing for the time and must be represent on any list.

Oh, and where is Condemned!? That was an amazing FPS Campaign!

Don't you mainly use melee weapons in that game?

The title should be changed to “Best FPS games since 2007”. You can’t say ALL TIME and not have any of the great FPS campaigns that started the genre.

You are correct. The article headline has been changed to "Top 20 Single-Player FPS Campaigns Of The Last Decade"

They are all great games and I'm not disagreeing or maybe its my nostalgia but all these games are after the millennium....

Exhumed on Sega Saturn,Quake 2 on PC, Goldeneye on N64 must be mentioned imo.
