Forums - Gaming Discussion - Best FPS game of the 2000s

I've never been much of an FPS guy and this was the last decade where I showed any kind of interest. I think I have to go with Metroid Prime but some others I enjoyed were Timesplitters 2, Halo, Resistance and Half Life 2.

Well, shame on me for forgetting one of my all time favourites - Battlefield 1942

Not the first or the best (that's probably still WWII Online: Battleground Europe, though it's way past its prime), but probably first one that made multiplayer combined arms warfare a mainstream thing.

Left4Dead, UT2004, Halo, Modernwarfare 2.

LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

I feel like COD World at War really gets overlooked, probably cos it was so overshadowed by the more famous Modern Warfare.

Honestly though I think it's the better game of the two; its certainly less innovative, but its brutal campaign with its harrowing depiction of war as a struggle for survival where humanity is lost amidst the carnage had more depth and resonance than MW's more clinical single player outing, for me anyway.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I forgot to add Crysis earlier as it implemented sandbox elements and design.

Yo the best FPS is the first-person mode in Battlefront II.

I'll die on this hill, too.

Bioshock for sure.

I'm surprised more people haven't mentioned this game. But technically the first beta releases came 1999.

For me personally I must say UT 2003/2004

Gonna think a little bit outside the box and say Time Splitters Future Perfect.

Nintendo Switch Friend Code: SW-5643-2927-1984

I'd say TimeSplitters 2 takes this title.
