+ So recently there was a video on the Escapist about the reviewer’s Top 5 First Person Shooters… AND THE LIST SUCKED. I know it’s all about personal opinion but… Battlefield 3?! Seriously?! Battlefield FUCKING 3 DEFINED THE GENRE?! NO! BULLSHIT!
Anyway, it got me thinking, and I’m going to share with you my top 7 FPSs. Why seven? If you know me, you know I like seven because five’s not enough, and ten’s too many. Now you may disagree with me as much as the guy on the Escapist, and I’m prepared for that.
7. Bulletstorm DAMN. STRAIGHT. I’ve talked about why I love Bulletstorm so much, but there aren’t enough words for me to describe why I fucking love this game. You got Steve Blum, you got Jennifer Hale, you got awesome gameplay. DENATTADEN.
6. Team Fortress 2 Hear me out. It’s the only sole multiplayer FPS game on this list. It’s still fun. And despite the haters going “OH, VALVE DOES NOTHING BUT CRANK OUT HATS NOW!”, Valve does continuously update it with more maps, more game modes, and more fun, other than hats. I like it.
5. Half-Life 2 ONE DAY JOHN FREEMAN, WHO WAS GORDON FREEMAN’S BROTHER… yadda yadda. It’s still a blast to play now. The narrative works really well, you’re rarely taken out by cutscenes… it’s just fun.
4. Borderlands 2 BIG step from the original. It’s a lot of fun regardless of if you’re in a group or by yourself. I do recommend making one of each character to see the different playstyles, though. I love both Siren and Gunzerker so far.
3. Serious Sam 3 Yes, it’s on here. You know I love it. Next game.
2. Doom The father of all FPS games. I was surprised not to see this on the list I mentioned at the top. It’s one of the most important FPS games and no mention. I love Doom. Play Doom.
1.Quake This was my first FPS ever. The creativity of this game is just… unparallelled. It’s Doom + Cthulhu Mythos + 3D Graphics. Sure, you can say that Quake pioneered “Real is Brown.” But fuck you, Quake is fun. Without Quake, no Half-Life, no Half-Life 2, no Team Fortress. If you haven’t played it yet… just go play it. It’s fun. :D
There you go. My list. There’s a mix of modern and classic, and hopefully, you see why I love it. :D
