PCA: "Scopes up, safety catches off and trigger fingers at the ready? In chronological order, we count down the best first-person shooters ever made."
bioshock 2 should hav been replaced by bioshock 1, and black ops should hav been replaced with cod4. halo combat evolved should have been in the list! wonder why it got left out?
Good calls on all counts. That said, I was pleasantly surprised to see the love given to Marathon. It is all too often overlooked due to its Mac exclusivity. @below And swim (at least I think).
Marathon was the first FPS to let you look up and down. Hugely innovative title.
What an odd list.
You're 100% right, and Resistance 3 as number 1? I dont usually take notice about it, but this is pure PS fanboy stuff here.
@Laxman216, the games are clearly ordered by year, not quality. It starts with Doom in 1993 and ends with Resistance 3, which just came out recently. Agreed tho, Resistance 3 would be a terrible choice for No 1.
Where is half life 1?
1998: Starsiege Tribes. Pretty good list though.
Awful list, just awful
You know it's bad when they don't even include the game that invented the genre (Wolfenstein 3D).
Actually, Maze War, Battlezone and Corporation are all FPS games that pre-date Wolfenstein 3D by years. (Mind you, they aren't on the list either.)
^Thx for info.
Interesting list. Some good choices and some odd ones. I think the issue with the list is the fact it has 25 choices when it would be best to maybe cut it down to 15.
Why does it show a picture of fall of man for Resistance 3? And why list Black Ops, and halo reach as landmark fps when they didn't biuld very much from previous installments?
At a guess, Black Ops and Halo: Reach get more google searches... which means more hits for website.
Nail on the head.
25 pages lol gtfo
I love that Killzone is on the list! I have enjoyed the majority of this list, and am having a BLAST with kz2/3 this gen! They are so detailed and polished, guerrilla games obviously put so much effort into these games, they truly deserve recognition!
