Here have been many great single-player first-person shooter storylines in gaming, here's the best of the bunch you need to play and experience.
My list would include: 1. Bioshock 2. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. Far Cry 3 4. Halo 4 5. Wolfenstein: The New Order
Halo 4 campaign always gives me chills! It was truly legendary!
Personal List 1. HL2, ep1,ep2 2. Bioshock 1,Inf 3. MW2 4. Titanfall 2 5. Metro 2033 6. Far Cry 3 7. Borderlands 2 8. Halo 3 9. Mirrors Edge (more world building than story) 10. F.E.A.R 11. Bulletstorm Extra special mention if 3rd person was allowed. Spec Ops: The Line
Half Life 2 + episodes Return to Castle Wolfenstein F.E.A.R. 1 & Extraction Point Titanfall 2 Bioshock Trio Halo 3 + Reach Wolfenstein New Order & Old Blood Killzone 2&3 Metro Trio Honorable mentions: CoD4, MW2, BO1, Infinite Warfare, MW'19 (short & enjoyable campaigns) Quake 1, Doom'16 & Eternal (not story but purely on gameplay) Dishonored series & OG Thief (not strictly shooters but great first person stealth games) Fallout 3 & NV as well as Deus Ex 1 + HR + MD (if first person RPGs with guns are allowed) STALKER (becoz cheeki breeki) We need a resurgence of good story driven linear first person shooters. Not open world quest fests or live service shooters.
The Darkness had a good story. It's a shame the sequel ended on a cliffhanger as we never got a third game.
I'm still holding out hope we get another along with another Condemned game
I wouldn't hold your breath for another Condemned game because they won't even make Condemned 2: Bloodshot backwards compatible. I've been asking for so long that they make it back compat to no avail. I swear I fina buy an old 360 from somebody just to beat Bloodshot. Hopefully soon now that I got a new job.
Condemned needs a reboot/remake and ignore the plot of the 2nd game, the first game was so much better.
Came here looking for BioShock and Wolfenstein: The New Order. Also, I am really looking forward to Atomic Heart next year. It looks amazing, and maybe we'll see that game on future lists like this if it turns out as good as it looks.
Black Ops should be on that list. The story is better than MW2 in my opinion.
as much shit as it got, I actually fondly remember Black Ops 3 story a lot. I know it was different, but that's also why I liked it lol but yeah BO1 is def a memorable one
I think I heard MW tends to be straight forward and BO story tends to be encrypted. Saying this way because i havent played MW the only CoD I played was BO1 and BO3 beause it was free. After playing BO3 I was kinda confused a bit and had to read up on it etc making me think ok not bad.
Definitely. The BO series has way better story lines than MW. @blackblades Yeah, MW is your typical "America good, everyone bad, shoot and/or blow everything up" story. BO games typically have more depth to the story.
No particular order but the first that come to mind that really stuck with me. Bioshock 1/infinite Mirrors edge Cold winter Resistance series Wolfenstein Darkness Chronicles of Riddick Halo 1-3 Fear 1 and 2 Half life 2(& episodes)
Everyone agrees, bioshock is #1, ? on mirrors edge its one of my favs but can we really call that a 1st shooter when its more parkor. I never took a gun and killed honestly
Resistance was great, but 3 stuck out the most for me.
Loved all the Resistance games! If they don't return to the series I really hope we get a Remake or Remaster collection of the games.
Oh man, imagine a remake of resistance 3! That would be amazing! And probably scary as f#*k for certain levels 🤣
Literally can't believe Half Life isn't included but Call of Duty is.... I'd also say Singularity aswell, not as amazing as the others but it kept you engaged and interested until the credits rolled
The original Half Life had almost no story. The second was meh. Only the episodes are worth mentioning.
No Metro, what a shame
Maybe they edited the article, but Metro Exodus is on there. Love those games. Extremely underrated.
Some people believe that Metro Exodus is not 'Metro' since they ditched the tunnels.
- Chronicles of Riddick (both games) - BioShock - Wolfenstein: The New Order - Call of Duty 4, MW2, W@W, Cold War - Deus Ex: Human Revolution, even though it's technically an RPG
Halo 4 Metroid Prime
For me 1. Bioshock 2. Halo1-3 and Reach 3. Half-Life 1,2 4. Metroid Prime 5. Singularity by Raven Honorable mention was Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, not completely a first person shooter but was damn good. Just some of my favorites
I heard singularity was goood
Yeah, it was one of those games you try and your not expecting a whole lot. But then it surprises you with how good it is. I was really bummed it didn’t do better because it really deserves a sequel.
No Halo? The original was groundbreaking when it released and the twist with the flood was a jaw dropping moment.
