Top 10 topic #18: Action shooter / 3rd person shooter
For this one we'll focus on games like Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead Redemption, and or Gears of War style. All 3rd person ONLY games are accepted.

If you have a question on which game belongs ask the community and we shall answer!

---------------------------------

1. Red Dead Redemption
2. Grand Theft Auto III
3. Resident Evil 2
4. Resident Evil 4
5. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
6. Resident Evil 3
7. Resident Evil: Code Veronica
8. Metal Gear Solid
9. Gun
10. Resident Evil 1

Yes yes yes, my list is very narrow, but, these games are just great fun to me regardless. Plus, I cannot think of another game in this genre that I remember liking so maybe some of you can jog my memory!

Hey guys,

Here is my list. I do prefer third-person shooters over fps. Why? I guess the concept of controlling and seeing a character on screen is more of my thing, since I was raised on third-person (i.e. Zelda, Mario, Rygar, TMNT, Contra, etc.). FPS was meant to give you the illusion of being yourself within the game. I don't really care for that unless it's for a special purpose like Virtual Reality or something.


1. Metal Gear Solid
2. Resident Evil 2
3. Resident Evil
4. Resident Evil 4
5. Metal Gear Solid 2
6. Mass Effect
7. Max Payne
8. Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow
9. Syphon Filter
10. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

Aww come on Phil, don't do this to me ... At least take Conviction if you choose any Splinter Cell for an action shooter list Grin


1. Splinter Cell: Conviction
2. The Evil Within
3. Resident Evil
4. Resident Evil Zero
5. Resident Evil 4
6. Sniper Elite 3

I guess I'll complete my list later if I remember any other games that were actually 3rd person shooters, most of the ones I've played were 1st person. We'll see.

Hehe. If you haven't noticed already, my favorite games in a genre are usually earlier titles of the series. I just feel the original titles were better and higher quality. Most games lose its greatness later on the series. I did play Conviction about 2 years ago; but it still didn't quite hit the mark like the first 3 games in the series for the original Xbox. Perhaps it's nostalgic bias? We may never know. :P

It's perfectly fine that you like Pandora Tomorrow more, it's actually one of the games that I'd like to see remastered because I can't really play it anymore like I want to play it. I have to knockout pretty much everybody because the lighting of the game is too old to be rendered the right way or something like that, so even if it seems like you're in the shadows you may be out in the open.
But to count it as a shooter hurts my stealth-loving heart Grin

Sorry, bro. Maybe I will modify my list once I play the Red Dead series, but before then, I can't put in it in the top 10 list without playing it. ;) Red Dead Revolver and Redemption have always been compared as a cowboy/western version of GTA. That's always a good thing.

Revolver is good but is on the line of not aging well... I definitely recommend Red Dead Redemption. The story is pretty good as is the dialogue. While it is only 6.5 years old it has aged very well.
