Selective Creation: Make the Top 30 Shooters of All Time List!



  • @parasitepaladin Yes, HotD counts. It is an FPS after all and as TokyoSlim pointed out, it was ported to the Saturn.



  • House of the Dead
    Overwatch
    Perfect Dark
    Half Life 2
    Return to Castle Wolfenstein
    Star Wars: Republic Commando

    Such an incredible title, and such a crime that we are left without a sequel! This game made amazing use of Star Wars settings and tech, showcasing great enemy and mission design. However, it's Delta Squad that makes this gem truly shine. The squad banter felt witty and authentic, but never forced. Ordering the squad to different positions and roles was incredibly simple, and each of your squadmates felt deadly. So many games with AI allies leave you with bumbling oafs who don't actually harm the enemies all that much (Slippy...), but each commando felt like an integral part of your team who truly had your back throughout this wonderful game.

    P.S. : the theme song was sung in Mandalorian



  • House of the Dead
    Overwatch
    Perfect Dark
    Half Life 2
    Return to Castle Wolfenstein
    Star Wars: Republic Commando
    Killer 7

    Suda51 is my waifu. Such a crazy and charming game. AND DAT MUSIC. Everything about this game is feels weird and funky and hard to explain. Fun though!



  • Would Mass Effect apply?



  • @parasitepaladin I love Killer 7, it's great and weird... but I definitely wouldn't consider it a shooter.



  • @Musou-Tensei Yes, I will count it. Especially as the series got longer, the less of an RPG it became. Mass Effect is a TPSRPG.



  • Just a suggestion (as I'm obviously not the one running this whole killfest), but we need some sort of method for defining what a shooter is. There's going to be a decent amount of genre blending so my suggestion is - check the game out on Wikipedia. The very first line describing the game will list it as a first person shooter, a third person shooter, or something entirely different, disqualifying it from being nominated.



  • House of the Dead
    Overwatch
    Perfect Dark
    Half Life 2
    Return to Castle Wolfenstein
    Star Wars: Republic Commando
    Killer 7
    Halo 3

    One of my favourite games of all time and my absolute favourite in the Halo series. Gameplay is fun, story is amazing, I could go on but I won't.

    Overwatch
    Perfect Dark
    Half Life 2
    Return to Castle Wolfenstein
    Star Wars: Republic Commando
    Killer 7

    Easily my favorite FPS, there's no way it could be left out of the list.



  • House of the Dead
    Overwatch
    Perfect Dark
    Half Life 2
    Return to Castle Wolfenstein
    Star Wars: Republic Commando
    Killer 7
    Halo 3

    Deus-Ex

    Generation defining FPS RPG. Has to be on the list.



  • House of the Dead

    Return to Castle Wolfenstein
    Star Wars: Republic Commando
    Killer 7
    Halo 3
    Bioshock
    Deus-Ex
    Mass Effect 2

    It is my favorite game ever, and it is a shooter... Kinda.

    Ultra-gritty art style makes you truly feel like you're in hell...in a good way! Fantastic level layouts too!

    The one and only Doom, that made FPS as popular as it is today



  • I'm going to throw RAGE in there cause no one else will .Despite the unnecessary open world & non existent story the shooting mechanics & AI was great. The gunplay felt weighty & the wingstick is OP in the best possible way.

    I know this series has really Shrek-ed, but you can't deny how fun they are. I chose MW2 because I feel like that was the entry that essentially perfected the formula, and was released before the franchise started to wear out its welcome
