The five best classic shooters (according to PC Gamer)

Five editors highlight their favorite classic shooters of all time

Opinions! We have a lot of 'em, but in this edition of PC Gamer's Playlist, we've somehow managed to distill our complex views on the big subject of classic shooters into a list of just five of our favorites. Note that our choices aren't based on some all-encompassing algorithm which weighs historical context, impact on the industry, and public consensus—these are the much-debated personal opinions of each editor, and we've focused on choosing titles which we still want to (and do) play today.
