910th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Bungie Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios It feels weirdly apt to cover an older Halo game now, as the anniversary edition has been recently released as I type this. It’s the last in the series that’s on the list, although Halo […]

881st played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Crytek Publisher: Ubisoft I’ve really played this series out of order. Sure, we played the second and third game in that order, but both have their own quirks developed after this game. Far Cry 2 is described by many as an […]

870th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: id Software Publisher: Activision Doom and Doom II were the two games that started the FPS genre – not the first to exist, but they defined a lot of how it worked.

867th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Dynamix Publisher: Sierra On-Line From the creators of The Incredible Machine comes… one of the early multiplayer online shooters. The mecha Starsiege games led to Tribes, which then had its large online component isolated for this sequel. I’ve heard of it […]

853rd played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 2002 Developer: 2015, Inc. Publisher: Electronic Arts It feels like the Medal of Honor series is another military shooter similar to the Call of Duty series – you’re a soldier, you go out and attack places, guard them or similar and go through […]

835th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC/Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Monolith Productions Publisher: Warner Bros. Games Bringing in another sequel, we return to the world of F.E.A.R., an FPS with a horror-based story that we played about a year ago that was effective in its story telling, but didn’t […]

821st played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: EA Dice Publisher: Electronic Arts After having played many Battlefield games, both Battlefield 1942 and 1943 made it clear to me how much of this is a multiplayer franchise and that the multiplayer FPS has no appeal for me.

817th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Splash Damage Publisher: Activision There’s something nice, for me, about playing the occasional free game – it’s pretty helpful for my wallet, if nothing else. Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory started life as an expansion pack for Return to Castle Wolfenstein, which was […]

779th played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: Playstation 3/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2009 Developer: EA Dice Publisher: Electronic Arts Time to get back to the Battlefield series, since I still have two to go and won’t enjoy them much more this time. Especially since, from what I have been able to determine, Battlefield […]

753rd played so far Genre: First-Person Shooter Platform: PC/XBox Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Starbreeze Studios/Tigon Studios Publisher: Vivendi Universal Games Although tie in games are usually seen as bad, we have seen some good ones – Goldeneye is the one that everyone loves, while Star Wars arguably has some games that are better than […]
