This Gen's Best Console First Person Shooter Is...

NextGN writes: "There are a lot of great contenders for this generation’s best console first person shooter – what more is that it’s even more difficult to decide which game should be crowned king when each has introduced something new and exciting to the genre. However, there is one game I clearly think takes the cake for not only being the best shooter this generation but also one of the greatest games ever made."

Con for BFBC2 is it's CoD style campaign? And then you praise the CoD4 campaign. That doesn't make much sense.

Bioshock not having multiplayer isn't a con. Bioshock 2 proves that.

Lastly, Bungie didn't abandon Halo. Map packs in a few weeks and post-launch support prove that.

Well, because we already have Call Of Duty ans dont need a clone?

Dramscus2896d ago (Edited 2896d ago )

How deluded can this guy be to say any call of duty game has "photo realistic graphics"
Not detracting from the game but thats just untruthful.

I think the list he made is excellent without having a best game chosen. That's a totally subjective concept right there. I mean he chose halo reach but even from a totally impartial point of view I can't see it being better than any of the other games on the list.
I'd even say that modern warfare, and mag are both better.

Also since I spoke of mag just here I have a bone to pick with his pro's and cons. He didn't have vehicles in the pros section (which halo had so you would think it would be included in any game with vehicles), and in the cons section he listed lack of single player part and dated graphics. Which is arguably totally stupid, the game is about being a massively multiplayer online tactical shooter, a single player campaign was never part of it's description and just wouldn't work with the game. It's a moot point it has nothing to do with a pro or a con it's not a feature it's not an absent feature it's a design choice. And the graphics are at least on par with the recently released black ops and are probably closer to modern warfares graphics (though the art style is severly different in that they didn't give mag a sepia filter/brown grey wash over everything in mag)

No online-multiplayer is not a con in this game. "I needs mah killstreakz".
Shut up :P

Also, this list would be a lot better if it was:
"Best Console First-Person Shooters" with an "s" instead of picking a specific winner.

ShinMaster2896d ago (Edited 2896d ago )

Another list made for the sole purpose of praising Halo and how it's the best evar.
Opinions, opinions...

Yeah I totally agree. The Pros and Cons aren't very solid. He includes certain positives/negatives points in some games and excludes them in others.

MAG may have had vehicles but they didn't make or break the game. Sure, it was good to have them but it's not something the game is known for. The vehicles felt weightless.

Wouldn't mind playing Halo Reach. Heard a lot of good things about it. Could be my first Halo purchase.

Lol, you caught that too, when I first saw it I thought it was a joke.

FishCake9T42895d ago

Well COD4 does have an amazing campaign but yes the writer is a hypocrite.
Anyway it has to be COD4 for me hands down. Every FPS since has taken some aspects from that game e.g. Perks, Killstreaks, Gun attatchments.

you know this generation is in the gutter, and gamers this generation are too..

joydestroy2896d ago

iunno, i really enjoyed BFBC2, KZ2 and Halo Reach. 3-way tie for me

BrianB2896d ago

IMHO Halo 3 is the best fps this gen EDGE was right it really was the game of the decade but of corse that's just my opinion

STICKzophrenic2896d ago

I agree with you.

I think Halo 3's campaign is better than Halo: Reach. Reach has some pretty epic moments, but nothing that matches up with the Scarab battles (dual Scarab battle is EPIC) or the end of the game.

This generation's consoles are going to be around for at least another 3 years. It's a bit too soon to decide now.

Also, Team Fortress 2.

BobKotickIsTheKiller2896d ago

Completely agree with the nominees and the chosen winner. Great article.

ALFAxD_CENTAURO2896d ago (Edited 2896d ago )

¿This gen is over to mention the best FPS?

Since when the next Gen started?

What about Killzone 3, Crysis 2, and the others incoming, are these the next Gen games?

Spydiggity2896d ago

he mentions those....

the article isn't meant to announce the definitive shooter of this generation...just the best game so far. and it's still just an opinion...

get a grip
