best FPS Games

    I would've liked to see Fallout 3 included, but I don't know if it can be fully considered an FPS, seeing as it also heavily emphasizes it's RPG elements, and alot of firefights were done through V.A.T.S. (Then again, Deus Ex was also a pretty robust RPG, and the shoulder button in the first few metroid FPS's did all the aiming for you, so it can't be that far from a "real" FPS)

    I've said it before else where, but will restate it. Fallout 3 is an RPG, despite it's first person perspective. You don't really classify it as an FPS because firefights are much more reliant on your weapon skills, and a lot less on your skill with the weapon.

    Be that as it may, firefights in Borderlands were always dependent on your weapon stats as well, and yet it was still classified as both an FPS and an RPG, and in the Original Deus Ex, firefights were almost entirely dependent on your stats with a particular weapon type rather than your skill with said weapon (it was almost impossible to use a sniper rifle without the proper training), and yet it's still on a list about FPS's. Then games like the first few Metroid Primes were more action/adventure than FPS, shooting was controlled almost entirely by pressing 2 buttons simultaneously rather than actually aiming manually, and a large portion of the game had you rolling around as the morph ball to access multiple areas, so again, there's no reason to deny New Vegas and Fallout 3's classification as an FPS. Like mentalityljs said before you, Fallout is simply classified primarily as an RPG, but that doesn't mean it's not a shooter either.

    Agreed with the Far Cry 2 entry, the Freedom was awesome and for me, the overall concept of the series and how different they are is what i love about them and Far Cry 2's no exception, it was just plain Awesome. The Whole Package of Metroid Prime Trilogy was just fantastic aswell, each game was just great with the Wii Controls.

    BF3 was the biggest disappointment in SP anyway. BFBC2 certainly had a good SP, I still play the single player now. Much more open ended compared to BF3 and you could do what you want rather than sit on rails. BF3 was like one huge intro to the game but you never got to actually do what you wanted.

    all of these type of articles have stopped working for me :/

    I've heard Singularity is good, and I've just gotten Deus Ex: Human Revolution, it's interesting enough for a while, but it has gotten a bit boring.
  • sweetchiliheat - July 12, 2012 4:53 p.m.

    Singularity had a story that borrowed from many other games. Don't get me wrong, many games do this, and Singularity got it right (like Darksiders). Still, it still didn't have enough of an impact to make me think of it right away.
  • hullonotna - July 12, 2012 7:01 p.m.

    I actually did. I really enjoyed Singularity. It, Deus Ex, and COD 1 are the first three games that come to mind when thinking of FPS single player campaigns.

    I liked Far Cry 2 more than a lot of people, but it would be my first choice to bump off and replace with the first Crysis. And before it got Wii controls people made a real point of saying Metroid Prime isn't a first person shooter, especially because holding L did all the aiming for you. But with the Wii controls I'd say it can pass as a pretty unique, adventure-focused FPS. And good to see Doom II still getting the respect it deserves. Nobody has succeeded at making a game like it (Serious Sam doesn't count, because it has so many bs scenarios just for the sake of being ridiculous rather than fun or necessary).

    Crysis is definitely decent, but it falls apart quite messily in the second half. Was a better game as a super soldier fighting against a rouge nation, than a super soldier against aliens. The aliens pretty much made the armor powers obsolete. There still hasn't been an experience like pulling up to a tiny village full of rickety huts in a jeep, as bullets bounce of the vehicle. Jumping out and returning fire as you move away from the vehicle, which explodes and a wild fire breaks out in the midst of your gunfight. Far Cry 2 just had so many moments like that.

    A rouge nation eh? Were they all caked in makeup?
  • FOZ - July 12, 2012 9:12 p.m.

    That's not "the second half." People always ignore that the part where you fight Koreans is easily the biggest part of the game, long enough to stand as a game on its own while you ignore the alien part. And you know that Crysis 1 has like, the exact same scenario as you just described for Far Cry 2, except the jeep catches on fire, explodes, and tears apart the rickety shacks?
  • Bloodstorm - July 14, 2012 5:34 p.m.

    Yes, I played both games, but the feeling between those scenarios is very different, and much more exciting, IMO, in Far Cry 2

    No Turok?
