Top 10 topic #17: FPS (first person shooters)
This one should be interesting.

Definition of an FPS:
First-person shooter (FPS) is a video game genre centered on gun and projectile weapon-based combat through a first-person perspective; that is, the player experiences the action through the eyes of the protagonist.

So this means no third person shooters like Gears of War. If a game has a toggle that you can use to switch between first and third person modes that counts and is accepted. Grin

Question: Does Elder Scrolls or Fallout fall in to the FPS genre even as they are RPG-based instead of action-based? These lines are blurry! I say no.

----------------------------------
(assuming no RPGs)

1. Borderlands 2
2. Borderlands
3. Unreal Tournament
4. Doom ][
5. Quake
6. Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force
7. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
8. Unreal Tournament III
9. Doom
10. Return to Castle Wolfenstein

RE: Top 10 topic #17: FPS (first person shooters)
Hey guys,

As you all may know, I'm not a big fan of First Person Shooters. I've played varying FPS games throughout my career since the 1990s. I play the genre casually like I do with fighting games. Here is my list.

1. Halo
2. Halo 2
3. Black
4. Doom 3
5. Dead Island
6. Resistance 3
7. Borderlands
8. Borderlands 2
9. Metroid Prime
10. Goldeneye 007

RE: Top 10 topic #17: FPS (first person shooters)
1. Doom II
2. Splinter Cell: Conviction
3. F.E.A.R.
4. Unreal Tournament (good in mp mode, enjoyable but rather weak in sp mode)
5. Sniper Elite III

I'll edit the rest when I remember all my fps games that I've played so far, it's still early in the morning and I didn't have my coffee yet.

Neither Coviction nor Sniper Elite are pure shooter games, but I'd say they're stealth/tactical shooters, so they still count for me.
