I agree with #1
Pretty crappy list IMO, the worst part being Rainbow Six Vegas at #3.. that game belongs at around #28 on a top 10 list.
Well, for the influence and impact it's had, you'd be hard pressed to disagree with number 1. While I personally enjoyed Bioshock much more, I couldn't say it's been the number 1 shooter this generation. COD4 became so popular that it's multiplayer is the template of almost all multiplayer shooters since, and it was for a reason: COD4 did it right. No COD game has done it right since, but it's legacy will be with us for a LONG time.
What would be your top 10?
All the games in this list are great with the exception of Modern Warfare 3, I would have definitely put in Deus Ex Human Revolution in, instead of it. COD4 deserves it's place in here though, but not at number 1. And how come there is no love for arguably the greatest FPS of all-time; Half Life 2?
half life 2 was last gen noob. current generation is 2006 - present
They just had to shoehorn MW3 in there. the game has been out for barely 2 days.
Good list. They didn't have my favorite shooter this gen in Halo Reach. The addition of the reticle bloom was genius. My most competitive shooter on the market just got a lil more competitive with the bloom. Can't wait for the big update by 343i that makes the bloom more skill based and less chance. My only gripe is not having a ranking system in BTB so lots of times we end up just killing noobs :( Custom games FTW!
I think Halo 3 deservses its place in that list more than Reach does
Ok list... I think Rainbox six Vegas , Left for dead and Mw3 could have been left out. They forgot Half-life2 , Reach , Crysis . These game did way more for the genre than those other 3.
the fact that this list doesn't include Half Life 2 shows the authors to be completely lacking in basic gaming knowledge and therefore devoid of any credibility whatsoever.
your a retard half life 2 is not this gen current gen: 2006 - present.
I'm afraid you're incorrect. This generation is known as the 7th generation and it began in 2005: "Microsoft kicked off the seventh generation with the release of the Xbox 360 released on November 22, 2005 in the US. It featured processing power never before seen until Sony rivaled back with its Playstation 3 one year later. " Half Life 2 was released on the Xbox 360 (this gen) in On May 26, 2010, and then the PS3, so that console owners could experience one of the very best critically acclaimed shooters of all time. Analogy: Would you therefore give credence to someones list of the best boxers of modern times that didn't include Mohummad Ali ?
No Halo or Half-Life, but Modern Warfare 3 and Left4Dead are in there? GTFO.
Commercial reviewers are dicks.
For those who talk about Half-Life 2 - YES it is the best FPS shooter ever IMO but is a PC game. We don't consider the PC platform to have "generations" like a console does. PCs are always movie, where a console has a lifespan - hence the generations.
