Hey guys and gals! So I've been flirting with the idea of making a top 50 first-person shooters list for the site. I realize I've played a preposterous number of games from the genre over the last 24 years.

But I need your help.

I need your recommendations. What are your favorites? These can be big-name games or hidden gems; console, computer, or handheld titles; corridor shooters (e.g. Doom, Quake), arena shooters (e.g. Unreal Tournament, Quake III), military shooters (e.g. Call of Duty, Killzone), open-world shooters (e.g. Far Cry, Crysis), or tactical shooters (Rainbow Six, Ghost Recon), etc.

Make your voices heard!

 

Edit:

Games to play:
Team Fortress 2
Counter-Strike
Rainbox Six 3
Dark Forces
Redneck Rampage
No One Lives Forever
Aliens vs. Predator (2000)
Alien Trilogy
Alien Resurrection
Outlaw
Serious Sam
Rage
Shadow Warrior
Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force

Doom, Half Life 2 and Bioshock for me.

Can we Include Metroid Prime as an adventure Shooter?



1. Call of Duty (People can hate all they want but sales don't lie)
2. Half-Life
3. Counter-Strike
4. Team Fortress 2



You forgot what is pretty much the largest and most popular franchise of all time. Counter-Strike, though it started as a Half-Life mod it has been it's own game and series for ages now.



Overall, it's the Metroid Prime series. But Half-Life 1 and 2 plus the MP series are the best the FPS genre can offer in various directions.

Oh yeah, this is still a big gap in my resume. I need to play Counter Strike before I compose this list. Thanks!

How does Team Fortress 2 (X360/Orange Box) differ from the PC version?

Last I played there's a big different between the console versions and the PC.  Consoles were just the very basic with no support.  PC support was just overhelming and many new stuff.  TF2 on PC is the only version people should play, plus it's also free now/been free on Steam for awhile.



My personal Top 5 FPS Franchises would be:

1) Unreal Tournament
2) Half-Life
3) Counter-Strike
