The fast-paced, tactical hero shooter It’s a gorgeous, ridiculously exciting, fast-paced multiplayer hero-shooter with tons of character, great action and strategic teamplay. There’s a character for everyone in Overwatch and the sheer variety and uniqueness of each hero is outstanding. If you want to be a robot-ninja, go right ahead. If you want to be a champion Russian weightlifter with a gravity gun, you go for it! Overwatch will suck you in from the minute you play it, it’s probably the most exciting team-based FPS there’s ever been. On top of that, the maps and game modes are interesting and varied and Blizzard are doing a spectacular job of keeping it updated and fresh with new heroes, skins, maps and events. It is most definitely not too late to check it out.
The classic competitive one The most finely honed competitive shooter out there, CS:GO has a lineage stretching back almost two decades and has only gotten better with each iteration. It’s refined itself until it’s become almost the perfect FPS, its weapon purchase system and map rotations meaning it never gets stale, each game is different and a test of your skills. From beginners to pros, CS:GO is as fresh today as it was at launch, and there’s always a place for you.
The one where you kill ALL of the demons A hark back to the forefather of the FPS genre, DOOM is an first person shooter game that takes old school mechanics and gives the a current generation coat of paint. This is the perfect game if you want non stop action, gore and violence. Who doesn’t love battling the demons of hell whilst wielding a super shotgun? This game is perfect for players new or old and in the later level can be unforgiving. Don’t get too comfortable with your array of weapons, as your ego will soon be crushed under the sheer force of hell.
The jumpy mech blaster with robot pals If, like the title above, can show anything, it’s that the FPS genre still has room to get much more exciting. Titanfall sets you as a pilot of a Titan, a mech that you can ride in, but also serves as your AI companion and robo-buddy. As a pilot you’re ferocious and feared, using your jump-boosts to navigate wide open levels and descend on your enemies. The mixture of agile pilot and trudging, heavy mech fighting gives Titanfall 2 a satisfying combo of combat. After playing through the genuinely innovative single player missions (especially after years of Call of Duty style corridor shooting), head to multiplayer and customise your pilot and your mech and fight it out with other pilots. The gunplay is fast, satisfying and pretty, and there’s nothing more exciting than calling down your titan and hopping into the cockpit, ready to rock.
The endless wave shooter with AESTHETIC Featuring an aesthetic that’s half nightmare dream, half PS1, Devil Daggers is a wave based FPS that features one weapon, one hand stretching out in front of you, and a hell of a lot of skulls. A true test of your ability to dodge, keep firing, and survive; at the start a Devil Daggers run lasts seconds but soon you’ll be blowing up skulls with the best of them. Everything about Devil Daggers is a nightmare except for how it plays, which is a truly refined and beautiful slice of pure-FPS carnage.
The definitive co-op FPS Possibly one of the best co-op FPS games out there. Left 4 Dead 2 pits a team of four of you against an unrelenting zombie horde. What makes left 4 dead 2 a cut above the rest is that you are so reliant on your other team members. Tactics are key, as going in all guns blazing will turn you into zombie food in an instant. The sheer variety of zombies is great as well from Tanks to Witches, each zombie has its own strategy. If you are looking for an all out zombie fest which requires brains as well as non stop action. Then this is for you.
The bioshock-in-space-one A sci-fi shooter set on a space station called Talos 1, where a rabid alien race has taken control. The Typhon are a feared race who have multiple abilities from telekinetic powers to transforming themselves into pretty any inanimate object in existence. Playing as Morgan Yu, you’ll investigate the alien infested space station and discover the secrets of both Transtar Corporation and how you are events beyond your comprehension. The extensive list of weapons, but severe lack of ammo, making this first person shooter a challenging experience.
The most innovative thing in shooters since mouse-look If killing a bunch of people in epically stylish ways is your bag then Superhot is for you! When we say stylish we mean so stylish that it gives both Wanted and The Matrix’s gun play a run for it’s money!
Superhot is the quietly sinister shooter, where if you move, then so do the super hot red people coming after you. Also available in VR, Superhot is challenging, clever and hours of fun with friends.
The foul-mouthed, sci-fi spectacle with style If Duke Nukem 3D was the filthy child of the 90s, then Bulletstorm was the same for the 00s. Set on a beautiful alien planet, you take foul mouthed bounty hunter Grayson Hunt through arena after arena, blowing up enemies in increasingly inventive ways, and foul mouthing your way through the scenery. Featuring the best lewd jokes since Leisure Suit Larry and utterly over the top, bombastic shooting action to match, Bulletstorm is the FPS that blows the rest away for sheer spectacle and FUN.
The OTHER definitive co-op shooter A wild adventure in the endless expanse of Pandora, Borderlands 2 is a manic and exhilarating open world first person shooter. The range of weaponry available is bonkers, similar to the characters, dialogue and storyline. The art design compliments the scatty premise and unique characters and skills, with a superbly written script. What’s more, this is one of the few shooters in our lists that supports 4 player co-op mode, allowing you to experience the epic story with your friends!
With it’s roster of awesome characters and an antagonist who can’t stop going on about diamond ponies, Borderlands 2 is an epic FPS game that everyone should play.
