DeSantis Gunhide Question of the Day: What’s Your Favorite FPS Gun Game?

I’m not sure I can watch an entire movie shot from the first-person perspective, no matter how cool the gun-related set-pieces. But I certainly understand why the filmmakers chose this option. You could even say it was inevitable, given the success of action movies like London Down, a video game masquerading as a movie. TTAG doesn’t cover FPS gun games, mainly because its editors are too busy working to play. But we know our audience is into them and may appreciate Hardcore Henry for what it is: someone else’s video game. So…what’s your favorite FPS shooter?

    Goldeneye on my Nintendo 64!!

    1. avatar Tile floor says:

      Oh hell yes I still play it

    2. avatar ninjaTED says:

      Fcuk yes! Proximity mine FTW!

  2. avatar James in AZ says:

    Call of Duty, before people started flying

    1. avatar barnbwt says:

      When the guns were wood, and steel, and actually existed!

    2. avatar SpeleoFool says:

      Lol. Sounds about right.

  3. avatar Shire-man says:

    I tend to like games everyone else hates.
    Section 8, Frontlines, Homefront, Quake Wars, Brink. If you’ve played it and hated it 10 years ago chances are I love it and am still playing it.

    1. avatar Paul says:

      Section 8 was actually pretty damn good. I’d have been upset at paying 60 for it but I got it on steam for like 10 or 12 bucks and it was a blast. Short, but a blast.

    2. avatar Matt Richardson says:

      ETQW and Brink were fantastic games that could have had much longer/better runs if they were better supported by their developers

    3. avatar Steven says:

      Homefront was a totally underrated game. I’ve never played a game where I really felt it was my patriotic duty to beat the game (That opening sequence really pissed me off). But my favorite would have to be a good up between Halo CE and Borderlands 1

  4. avatar Tex300BLK says:

    The original 007 Goldeneye for N64, full stop, everything else since has just been a cheap imitation.

  5. avatar SdubM45 says:

    Doom, Return to Castle Wolfenstein.

    1. avatar barnbwt says:

      Mein Leben!

    2. avatar VaqueroJustice says:

      I still play Doom2.

  6. avatar Sixpack70 says:

    Goldeneye for the nostalgia. My cousins and I would play that game for hours. We never really played the main game. Rainbow 6 for the later games and their one shot you are dead game mechanics. Lag was a real problem on dial up, so I didn’t have as much fun playing multiplayer.

    1. avatar Sixpack70 says:

      Ah, almost forgot the Bioshock games.

      1. avatar barnbwt says:

        Eh, Bioshock was actually pretty terrible as far as actually ‘gun mechanics’ stuff goes in my experience; the wrench was always more effective 🙂

        Everything else was fantastic though, and deserves a spot in a modern grade-school Civics class as much as Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri. Rainbow Six: Black Arrow (yeah, the one everybody hated, lol) was fun on a bun, though, and among the first games I remember to feature extremely cutting edge, but also real, firearms (SR-2, G36, TAR-21, etc.)

  7. avatar IL-annoyed says:

    The Last of Us

    Not alot of ammo, guns really kill fast, story was amazing and brutal to the end.

    Fallout 4 close behind

    1. avatar Cloud says:

      The Last of Us is excellent. I have Fallout 4 but I haven’t started it yet.

    2. avatar Brian says:

      The Last of Us is flat out amazing.

  8. avatar Sambo82 says:

    Technically 3rd Person, but Just Cause 3 has been hilarious so far. It’s like every Michael Bay movie rolled into one. Shoot an AR while jumping off the hood of a car you just drove off a cliff right before you wing suit away from the giant explosion that just happened for some reason.

  9. avatar Rob C says:

    Leisure Suit Larry, late 80’s version.. It was what I aspired to become as a young man. Unfortunately I have had moderate success. OK. It’s not quite an FPS, but his goals were to be an “FPS” nudge nudge wink wink.

  10. avatar Bernard says:

    Natural Selection 2. It’s like Starcraft mixed with Counter Strike, but too bad no one really plays it.

  11. avatar AnhydrousWater says:

    Mmmm favorite. I don’t know, steam list is too big to go through. Off the top of my head, Far Cry is pretty good.

    1. avatar James69 says:

      I liked far cry for the weapon jams, and weapon kaboom’s. Added a more “real” feel to the action.

      1. avatar SelousX says:

        Ah, yes! I loved Far Cry 2, or as my son calls it: “Darfur, The Simulation.”

  12. avatar Disthunder says:

    Wolfenstien The New Order.
    Best fps in years!

  13. avatar Cliff H says:

    Duke Nuke ’em

    I also was addicted to Wing Commander before they got so damn complicated I couldn’t possibly survive for 5 minutes.

    Most recently Call of Duty but I stopped at Call 4 when it also got too complicated to be fun. I enjoy the FPS stuff but really dislike getting killed all the time.

  14. avatar What The Heck Is That says:

    Borderlands. I love the art direction, the combat is extremely satisfying and the writing is hilarious.

    “Buttstallion!”

    1. avatar Brick says:

      Hey, slab!

  15. avatar Hellbilly says:

    Goldeneye 007 and Perfect Dark for the Nintendo 64. I have not been into video games since, so I’m not much of a judge.

  16. avatar WR in CA says:

    These sponsor names posts are trashing up your otherwise classy site. (Well that and the obnoxious toenail fungus ads).

    I bet if you had implemented this change before you sent out the survey, you would have heard about is from those of us who responded.

    Am I the only one who is really annoyed that I have to read Blue Force Gear and DeSantis Gunhide in the title of these posts?

    I realize you need to find revenue sources wherever you can, but this one brings down the quality of the product. Please reconsider.

    1. avatar Cliff H says:

      We are getting a high quality site with excellent content for free. TTAG gets some much needed revenue to keep the site running, pay the bills, and have funds to pay for professional writers. I am having a hard time understanding why so many people who have been raised on commercial television and radio, and now even commercials in the movie theaters while you wait for the movie you paid for to start, are bitching so much about sponsored content as innocuous as a quote of the day or question of the day.

      If these posts bother you, move on to the next one and let RF go on making his living and providing this format for the rest of us.

      TANSTAFL (There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.) Robert A, Heinlein, “The Moon is a Harsh Mistress”.

      Also, “Everything free is worth EXACTLY what you actually paid for it.” Also a Heinlein quote, I believe, but I cannot remember the source.

        “If you didn’t pay for it, you’re not the customer. You’re the product.”

  17. avatar Cliff H says:

    Here’s a suggestion – why doesn’t someone make an FPS training game for non-LEOs with realistic real-world defensive gun use scenarios? Seems like it would be a good training tool regarding force on force options, situational awareness, and all the other things everyday carriers should be conversant with, but a lot cheaper than real world FoF training.

    Training is good, don’t get me wrong, but it is expensive and time consuming and can only handle a limited number of scenarios and the outcomes (win/lose) are often at the whim of the trainers. I have seen more than one case where the trainer wants to drive home “The only gun fight you are sure to win is the one you don’t have” concept, which can be discouraging, to say the least. IMO FoF should give you the idea that if you do the right things at the right time you have a better chance of walking (or limping) away than if you do nothing at all.

    It would seem to be an ideal theme for FPS video training where you could work through dozens or more scenarios and outcomes.

    1. avatar Geoff PR says:

      “Here’s a suggestion – why doesn’t someone make an FPS training game for non-LEOs with realistic real-world defensive gun use scenarios?”

      Probably because it’s the scenario you *didn’t* train for that bites you…

      1. avatar Cliff H says:

        Too true, which is why the limitations of FoF live training are troublesome. You get to try maybe 4-6 scenarios and the bad guys already know you will be there. A video version with dozens of possibilities would give wider problem solving opportunities and give the option to run the scenarios over and over to correct your mistakes – like most FPS games.

        1. avatar JR_in_NC says:

          The benefits of FoF is not to train specific scenarios. The benefits come from pressure testing organic responses to real force.

          If you are “training” specific scenarios in FoF, you (or the trainer) are doing it wrong. Think of it as more of “Hands on OODA Loop Training” than practicing specific responses to specific inputs.

    2. avatar SouthernPhantom says:

      I’d play it.

  18. avatar Jim says:

    Multiplayer – Insurgency, single player – Fallout 4, COD Modern Warfare

  19. avatar Ralph says:

    Does Russian Roulette count?

    1. avatar Cliff H says:

      One time out of six, unless you’re using a semi-automatic.

  20. avatar David PA/NJ says:

    BF4

  21. avatar Raoul Duke says:

    Lot of good ones that I like but the one I like with the most gun variety no one has heard of was Vietcong 2.

    The first one was more polished but the 2nd one had the most diversity that no FPS developer has ever went. Show me a game where the AK, Vz-58, and StG-44 are in the same game. Or how about the BAR and M14, PPSh-41 and MAC-10, M60 and DP-28, Blunderbuss and M16!!! Then you have the Czech UK-59 MG (wildly underrepresented in FPS’s), Carl Gustav M45, L1A1 FAL, Sterling SMG, Vz-61 Skorpion, Mauser M96 “Broomhandle”, Mosin-Nagant, Tommy Gun, and a whole slew of American/Commie goodness with some European designs sprinkled in combining WW1, WW2, and Vietnam era weaponry all in one game that the vast, vast majority of games fail to do.

    http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Vietcong_2

    I dare you to show me a game that has an epic and diversified weapon list such as this one.

    1. avatar Lucas D. says:

      Ooooo, they have a Stechkin APS… I might have to hunt that game down.

  22. avatar David R says:

    Throwback I have to throw another vote in for Goldeneye for N64, still play that one occasionally and I don’t lose! Lmao. As for more recent I absolutely loved the Navy Seals Socom series, wish they would continue that one.

  23. avatar Ahil925 says:

    Tribes 2. Jet packs and blueplate specials. SHAZBOT.

    1. avatar Downrangefuture says:

      I suck at tribes. And I love every minute of it. Lol.

  24. avatar Eyal says:

    1. Counter Strike 1.6
    2. BF4

    1. I can’t believe it took this much scrolling to get to CS…

      I guess you and I are in some kind of generational black hole.

      1. avatar Eyal says:

        CS best game ever… I played hours an hours…

      2. Seriously. I still play with a clan. Why does it take this much scrolling to find the /thread comment?

      3. avatar Odoyle says:

        Yes. CS without question. Will it run on Win10? Seeing people still play it makes me want to get this game going again.

  25. avatar Jeff the Griz says:

    COD 4: Modern Warfare. My absolute favorite video game . I had a weird glitch that my online profile would get stuck on a level/rank and every time I shut the Xbox off I would lose all my XP/New ranks. I would play against players that prestiged with a noob level, they would get frustrated when I would win matches, but had played almost as much as some of them.

  26. avatar Jim says:

    Left 4 Dead. Cause zombies.

  27. avatar James in Houston says:

    Huh. Deus Ex. The first one anyway. The later ones killed the vibe. It’s old and people complain about the voice acting but that is the game that always did it for me. Made me feel connected, yaknow? Particularly Battery Park and Castle Clinton.

    1. avatar barnbwt says:

      You mean the game Deus Ex, or how this ‘movie’ is a blatant ripoff of the game? A full-on cinema version of Human Revolution with actors would have been a heck of a lot better than this garbage.

      At least I finally see how a truly realistic-looking FPS would work, and it’s not that appealing; too detailed, visually confusing, and disorienting jumbled mess. Simple HUDs, simpler controls, simple goals, non-distorted non-disrupted visuals, and responsive controls = harmony (COD2, Halo, Half Life 2+)

    2. avatar Sixpack70 says:

      Deus Ex was great. I remember when I first fired it up and that theme came on. It took a bit to get used to, and I went loud a lot more often than I thought I was going to. I started out trying to be sneaky but I ended up sniping everything in sight instead. The way they wove so many conspiracy theories into the game was pretty cool. The second one lost the vibe of the first one, but I will say I really liked the latest iteration, minus the boss fights. I did play sneaky in Human Revolutions so boss fights were sometimes ridiculous.

  28. avatar Cloud says:

    Yea this movie seems like it might give me a headache. But I am curious because Shartlo Copley is in it. He was the best part about Elysium, great in District 9 and Chappie.

    As for the question. I like Battlefield 4.

    1. avatar barnbwt says:

      “We need more goo for the camera, Mr. Director”

      DIdn’t they say the same thing (headaches) about 3D and even Blair Witch? Doesn’t matter if both have proven to be garbage, the customers will still pay for it.

  29. avatar Hippi says:

    The first BioShock steampunky guns but beautiful artdeco scenery and the atlas shrugged story line,perfect.

  30. avatar Lucas D. says:

    DOOM, Blood and the Bioshock series (except for 2) are my faves.

    I’m not sure how to feel about a movie shot entirely in first-person, though. That FPS sequence in the DOOM flick was what paid for the ticket on an otherwise stinky movie, but it also didn’t last 90+ minutes.

    1. avatar barnbwt says:

      Well, it’s for sure gonna make the “Hardcore Henry” video game look like shit (who the F came up with this name anyway? I’ll eat my hat if there doesn’t happen to already be a pornstar/movie by that name out there somewhere)

      1. avatar Neighborhood Watch Alliance says:

        It was originally called “Hardcore” and made as an indie movie. A distribution company picked it up, but insisted they change the name.

      2. avatar Lucas D. says:

        I know, right? It’ll join The Italian Job and Blow in that club of rare movies whose title won’t need to be altered when it comes time for the inevitable porno knockoff.

  31. avatar Winterborne says:

    Half Life

    1. avatar barnbwt says:

      +1, for the Orange Box ‘upgrade’ specifically. Decent gun selection & detail (not great or very realistic, though) but excellent/responsive controls and fantastic Foley audio work as well as voice acting. Great pacing & interesting world cover for a paper-thin storyline that doesn’t try to overcomplicate or distract from the playing experience. Perfect FPS video game.

  32. avatar Mr. Krinkov says:

    Insurgency is a good one with realistic gun handling. Another of my favs are Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 and the Metro series.

  33. avatar ActionPhysicalMan says:

    I haven’t played one since Doom II. I am ActionPhysicalMan, I do things physically or not at all! (mostly the latter).

  34. avatar Geoff PR says:

    “So…what’s your favorite FPS shooter?”

    Marble Madness.

    Oh, yeah, I forgot, it’s not a first-person-shooter.

    In the mid eighties I was in the upright coin-op video game industry.

    As a result of being that completely immersed in videogames for 3 years, I burned out on them *hard*.

    For those with fond memories of that era, Google M.A.M.E. (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator). Play all the games of your youth-hoodlum days.

    I’ll stick with my trackball and Marble Madness…

    1. avatar ActionPhysicalMan says:

      Oh yeah, jeez, I almost died from BattleZone back then. Had to swear the places off.

      1. avatar Geoff PR says:

        There are Battle Zone ROMs for MAME…

        And ROMs for nearly every other Upright and Cocktail video game every made…

        1. avatar Lucas D. says:

          Way ahead of you, there.

          Emulation is one of the most fun things you can do with a computer or smartphone. I even bought a $200 doohickey called an Nvidia Shield that lets me play everything from Atari to MAME arcade games to Playstation 1 on my 60” TV just like an ordinary console, and in Hi-Def to boot.

        2. avatar Geoff PR says:

          “Emulation is one of the most fun things you can do with a computer or smartphone.”

          Yes, indeed. There’s even a port for the Palm OS…

  35. avatar Jeremiah S. says:

    The Battlefield games are always fun or the Stalker games. I like being able to use guns that I will probably never get to use in real life such as the integral suppressed Russian guns like the VSS. I’ve also been playing the new Tom Clancy’s the Division when I have free time between the kids, wife, work and everything else.

    1. avatar Jeff the Griz says:

      PS4, PC, or one for Division? I have the same problem with getting online with my friends. Lvl 8, all my friends are 16+

    2. avatar Vendetta says:

      I am already obsessed with The Division. Most intuitive cover system ever. Super challenging encounters. Cleared level 30 on day 2 and the high end zones of the DZ make me look silly even with 110k dmg on my primary (a .223 SCAR). Great times.

  36. avatar MikeP says:

    One of my favs is Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter. Which is basically “London has Fallen” – just change the location from London to Mexico City, and the baddies to Cartels and you get the idea.

  37. avatar Brick says:

    Payday 2

    Get a load of this list:

    http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Payday_2

    The whole spectrum. G17, Mosin, Milkor, MG42, SCAR, FAL, M134, WA2000, etc, etc and the modeling is pretty good.

    And add in the fact that you can add all kinds of barrels, suppressors, stocks, compensators, magazines, lights, lasers, stocks, etc.

  38. avatar dragos111 says:

    Gotta say, I still like Unreal Tournament GOTY edition. Yes, vintage 1999 or something like that. It is still great in network game mode. You can still find people around the world playing it.

    1. avatar Mike in OK says:

      The 1999 UT is definitely my favorite, and I still play it sometimes. I remember playing that with a bunch of my friends from all over the country, and using Roger-Wilco so we could talk smack while we played.

  39. avatar Wesley says:

    Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield, because of the in-depth planning system that lets you script out how your team moves.

  40. avatar anaxis says:

    Perfect Dark was my favorite Nintendo game, and I played Doom relentlessly on my family’s 386 DX2 machine as a kid. Then when we upgraded, I got hooked on Descent & Tribes.

    Haven’t played much of anything since Fallout 3 NV fried my laptop’s video card.

    1. avatar anaxis says:

      Also, Operation Flashpoint. I loved the sandbox/mission editor and various mods that people made. It was a pretty massive and accurate game in terms of Cold War-era arms, armor, and uniforms.

  41. avatar Dustin Warf says:

    I’ve been playing shooter games as long as I can remember. Doom was my first. Destiny is my most recent. The shooters that appeal the most to my inner gun nut were Golden Eye N64, Perfect Dark N64, Medal of Honor series, Call of duty 4 Modern Warfare and Modern Warfare 2, Black on the Xbox, and Battlefield 3.

  42. avatar Oggy says:

    Sniper 3D on iPad is good for wasting a few minutes at a time

  43. avatar SouthernPhantom says:

    Definitely ArmA 2. The sheer variety of hardware is a thing to behold, not to mention its ability to model light-infantry work surprisingly well.

  44. avatar bob in IN says:

    Original call of duty, online team matches where you only get one life per game, no respawn. Not seen anything like it since, and hope I don,’t, too addictive for me.

  45. avatar James69 says:

    If you watch the whole trailer, it’s pretty good. Some real action in there and some great visual shots.

  46. avatar Mercutio says:

    Fallout:New Vegas for the reasonably accurate cartridge reloading options.

  47. avatar MiniMe says:

    Back when I had time to burn, my favorites were Castle Wolfenstein, Doom, Medal of Honor series and Black.

    Still play Black & Doom when I get a chance. Pity Black was never re-released on an HD platform or had a sequel.

    1. avatar DoomGuy says:

      “Pity Black was never re-released on an HD platform or had a sequel.”

      I know!!! That was my favorite PS2 game along with Resident Evil 4.

      1. avatar Milsurp Collector says:

        I remember renting Black on a whim wayyy back and being blown away by how little attention it was getting by, well, anybody. Weapon models were unlike any other on the PS2 or Xbox, destructability was top notch, and holy hell the sounds. This was pre-Frostbite engine in the Battlefield series and they still nailed it. I ended up beating it twice.

        Maybe some enterprising individual could get a petition/kickstarter going to get it remade.

        1. avatar DoomGuy says:

          I’ve beaten it a few times myself. I even got the special M16A2/M203 that they give you when you play on the “Black Ops” difficulty setting.

          And I’d second a petition for a remake/sequel.

  48. avatar DoomGuy says:

    In no particular order, Doom (all of them), Killzone 1&2, Perfect Dark, BLACK, PayDay 2, SOF 2: Double Helix, Far Cry and many others I can’t think of right now.

  49. avatar Milsurp Collector says:

    I don’t play video games anymore, but having a few computer science majors as friends does keep me in the loop. Escape from Tarkov looks pretty damn snazzy, seeing as the Russians currently developing it paid military personnel to be technical advisors in the weapons department. Has the most complex and cool looking customization options I’ve ever seen.

  50. avatar Tim says:

    Rainbow Six: Vegas 2

    Still has the best cover system in a shooter to date, mostly because it sacrificed a button to do so.

    Honorable mentions:
    -Deus Ex
    -STALKER series
    -Far Cry 2
    -Battlefield BC2
    -Counter Strike (1.6 and CSS)
    -Left 4 Dead

  51. avatar W says:

    It’s like that music video.

    Note: please do not blame me for the protagonist’s grip and/or stance.

    Note 2: NSFW

    1. avatar Matt says:

      About time someone mentioned it!

      I’d also refer you all to the first one.

      The movie and the 2 music videos are directed by the same person.

  52. avatar DoomGuy says:

    Killzone: Mercenary on the PS Vita is also a really good game.

  53. avatar tsbhoA.P.jr says:

    leisure suit larry.
    you guys couldn’t land barsony?

  54. avatar Cknarf says:

    As a young child? 007 Goldeneye. Red Faction I and II were excellent with friends, and the story was great as well.

    As a teen? Delta Force: Black Hawk Down. Shit graphics, but the gameplay more than made up for it. Followed closely by Battlefield 2: Modern Combat.

    Most recently, I’d have to say Battlefield 4. I’ve basically given up on Call of Duty, with all of this jetpack, 360 no scope mountain dew doritos bullshit. The last one I truly enjoyed was World at War.

    ETA: I’ve always been a big Rainbow Six fan. Even the later games were excellent, with their first person/third person cover system.

  55. avatar the ruester says:

    Freedom Fighters; you save NY from soviet invasion, with ghost recon like squad commands. Also the old PC game “Shadow Warrior…”

    “YOU NO MESSA WIT LIU WANG!”

  56. avatar Hannibal says:

    Chivalry.

    What? There’s arrows!

    Okay, fine, Insurgency.

  57. avatar THC says:

    Video games. What a horseshit waste of time.

    1. avatar Lucas D. says:

      Gee, the air must be pretty thin up there on top of your high horse.

    2. avatar LarryinTX says:

      I don’t remember that one.

  58. avatar David P. says:

    Shoulder of fortune II for Xbox. The graphics were horrible but if you shot the gun of your enemy he either went to grab it or switched to the pistol. If you shot his shooting arm he would switch hands. If you popped him in the head blood would squirt out of the neck three times before he hit the ground. After that goldeneye on 64. And we can’t forget duck hunting on the orginal!!

  59. avatar Yellow Devil says:

    Red Orchestra Series. Reenacting the Meat Grinder between the Nazis and Soviets is always epic in fps.

  60. avatar Mack says:

    Rainbow Six Siege hands down. The Division is good, but its not a FPS so I’m not sure why it’s mentioned.

  61. avatar N8thecowboy says:

    Does Duck Hunt count?

  62. avatar Indiana Tom says:

    Pong, Space Invaders, Galaxian. Pacman, Missile Command.

  63. avatar Art says:

    Half-Life 2 is still the king. The FarCry series is killing it. The first Crysis was amazing. Those games have gotten worse and worse as time goes on (they still look awesome).

    No way am I going to sit through Hardcore Henry. Just watch some FreddyW videos for your videogame-in-the-real-world fix.

  64. avatar Pete says:

    Used to be Counter-Strike, back in the 1.6 days, but now it’s Overwatch, so much fun. Also no way am I seeing that awful looking first person movie.

  65. avatar Joel Drake says:

    I know they’re third person, but the Uncharted games and The Last of Us. Both developed by Naughty Dog.

  66. avatar CRF says:

    Okay, so it’s third person, but I LOVED Resident Evil 4… It just felt… Right. Not to mention all the guns are real/closely based on real guns.

    Other than that the most recent one I’ve played is Boshock Infinite. Quite a fun game.

  67. avatar Reef Blastbody says:

    Currently: Tribes: Ascend and Fallout 4, with Black Mesa: Source thrown in from time to time, and patiently waiting for the Xen chapter to drop.

    Past games I enjoyed: Wolfenstein 3D, Quake/Quake2 (Arena didn’t thrill me), Starsiege Tribes (Ascend is a bastardization, with a slew of bullet weapons to bring in the COD kiddies. That and they’ve always felt wonky to me, and partnered with the buggy net code, makes consistent aiming a fools errand), and the original Half Life.

    1. avatar Matt says:

      I would feel a lot more zen when Xen comes out myself…

  68. avatar Tommycat says:

    Wow… I feel like the odd man out for liking Half Life and the mod Day of Defeat.
    Feels kinda good to be the different one.

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. – Love the variety of guns and the enemies.

    Half-life – Love that the AI would actually use tactics and try to flank you.

    Far Cry (original)

    Perfect Dark for the N64, it was an actual improvement on Goldeneye.
    Doom series original and with the Brutal Doom Mod… AMAZING
    Star Wars Dark Forces
    Halo is another natural great
    I played the crap out of Counter Strike 1.6 and Call of Duty MW 1 & MW 2
    Gears of War though not first person
    Half Life 1, 2, etc.

    Destiny right now (excellent shooter, good use of co-op). Tried Division on the open beta weekend, looks pretty good, but I have enough on my plate right now I didn’t buy it. Emphasis on cover & tactics, good use of real world guns and modifications, but the gunplay takes a little too many bullets to put things down.

    Borderlands 1 & 2 probably all time favorite. Ghost Recon was a favorite for a very long time. And Marathon and Deus Ex back in the day.

    I always loved the early Battlefield games.

    I also like Fallout series.

    Anything Rainbow 6 related. However siege has been a minor disappointment

    I always liked the early Rainbow Six games for realism.

    COD2 and Battlefield 1942 were always good even if less realistic. Battlefield 2 was my favorite back on the day.

    Far Cry 3 recently was pretty fun even though not realistic in a lot of ways.
