I figured I'd ask. Only because I just want to know about what FPS games you think are greatest or the worst possible to have even been released. So, what do you think?(My opinion omitted, of course)

EDIT: The thread now includes TPS's or Third Person Shooters for those who don't play games or even know what they are. (No offense meant by the last part of that)

Best FPS of 2011: Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
Worst FPS of 2011: Duke Nuken Shit balls.

I have to agree with the Worst FPS of 2011. God, I expected so much more of that game.

ClockHand
01-04-2012, 06:19 PM
I didn't expected anything from it. I grew up with the game and even as a kid I didn't found any joke in it. It was just controversial and interesting, the first approach in my childhood to boobs and sex, but out of that the game was horroble, and so I expected to be now.

True. I can't say anything since I grew up in the late 90's(early 2000's to be exact). So most games that I come across that I think are cool have usually been around for awhile, like Quake for example.

I'm not going to throw out the obvious Call of Duty hate that's inherent with FPS discussions. So I'll just talk about the ones I love.

Unreal Tournament, Battlefield, Halo, Bulletstorm, Killing Floor, Half-Life2, and S8 are all tops on my list. I can't give an opinon on the new Nuke, cause I've never played it. But from what I hear it's baaaad.

Oye, not the worst, but a pretty bad FPS (if you use magic and arrows): Skyrim.

Does Portal2 count? Cause technically you're shooting... just portals.

Killzone 3 and Section 8 are my multiplayer shooters.
As for single players I've greatly enjoyed the Army Of Two series (nothing says "fuck you" like a rainbow colored rpg), Mass Effect 2 (wish it wasn't 80% recruitment missions), Fallout 3 and NV (glitchy though), Dark Void (Boost, Switch to hover mode, snipe, snipe, switch to flight mode and speed off), Vanquish (they have got get rid of auto reflex mode),

One thing about fps is they are a little bit overdone

GunZet

My only complaint about DV was it's length. Way too fucking short, although it was rather cheap.

GunZet

Yea, and those giant mecha things being a little OP. Cause eventually I got stuck on the mission you have to take on two at once, and I just never made it :/

DV wasn't all that bad but there were times where you do "WTF!?". And for a few of my favorite(both new and old mind you) include, Quake, UT(Whole series), HL, Halo i enjoyed for awhile then it just got plain old, batttelfield, bulletstorm, Killzone series, The original Deus Ex and the new one. Well i could name off all but I think I'll stop there. And COD,....yeah well lets not go there.

Might've been those. But yea, two at a time was kinda stupid, as they always managed to gun me down, and the ships you hijack control real funky.

Anyways, back on topic. Metro 2033, even though it came out in 2010.

Serious Sam

I've been wanting to get into Serious Sam, but for some reason it just doesn't look like I'd enjoy it as much.
I freaking wanna play Doom2 again.

It's reminiscent of the PainKiller series. I played it and it's alright. I think Serious Sam was made by the same guys who made PainKiller...oh well. Me and my forgetfulness.

EDIT:

Games like Vanquish really play so similar to FPSes that there is really no distinction. It's an awesome game, also. Metro 2033, double also. Fallout 3, also also also.

Only half-mentioned, but did anybody ever play the ports of the original Doom games for the Gameboy Advanced? Very easy to pick up and play, best versions of the game IMO. It's a shame the DS doesn't have any FPSes, really, because all the PSP gets is crapballs of doody. Speaking of which, the Wii versions of those games are just evil and so rediculously buggy and laggy they should never have been released. >_>

Also also also also, Earth Defence force may be third-person, but it mega deserves a decent mentioning here.

Actually, the DS has one really good FPS I quite enjoyed. And that was Metroid Prime: Hunters.

Actually, there is more than 1 good FPS on DS.
Ever hear of Dementium? it's basicly Silent Hill in FPS form, but it's done real damn good.
to my knowledge there's also a sequel, alltough i'm not entirely sure.

@Gunz
The thread includes TPS's now. I should have just gone with shooter games period, but then thats what a thread is for xD. And for third person shooters, I only have the experience of RES 5, Gears of War(1,2,&3), Vanquish, and KillSwitch (Original Xbox format, crappy and practically an early version of Gears of War without the Locust and all the cool guns).

We can't really accurately add TPSs in because they tend to be a bit more...character-oriented.

T1B3R1U5

^--Well, they are still a shooter. I meant all shooter games, regardless of whether or not they are character oriented. And besides, if we wanted to talk about the characters, then I would have had the title of the thread be: What's your take on shooter game characters? Of course, it is not this so...but you do bring up a valid point on that though.

GunZet
01-05-2012, 05:00 PM
A lot of FPS games have begun to include elements of a TPS in their games, and the reverse for TPS games starting to include FPS elements.
For example, pick up a support weapon in Halo3/Reach, it switches to third-person.
Like more accuracy for that sexy chrome hammerburst in GoW3? Go to first-person.
Trying to increase your awareness in that Battlefield jet? Switch to third-person.

I'd like to see more of the fps/tps mixing going on in more games.

T1B3R1U5
01-05-2012, 06:06 PM
The reason behind all FPS's being cliched and boring: Same enemies, Same weapons, and shit like that. It may just have a different skin and effect, but still the same all together. Borderlands(Liked the idea of RPS(roleplaying shooter))for example, had the same enemies, mostly human, slightly varied beasts but still got boring with those. The weapons, well yeah there's a shit load, but the only difference I saw was the rarity and a few attributes to the gun. That's it.

Whatever You cheater!! Anyways, I can't say that I was really happy when I got Dead Island, I was rather disappointed. I'm sure everyone would be too, I mean it would've been awesome if they made a game simular to Zombie Hunter (Speaking of the Manga) I mean come on, isn't Zombie Games like the best FPS's ? And I know Zero's gunna get pissed if I tell anyone else who decides to play Saint's Row 3 with him is going to be ppissed at him. He's got Game cheats >w>; Gawd he better not kill me later when we play MW3 either.

I want an FPS with semi-realistic damage. Not simulator-realistic where I have to micromanage my wounds, but something that takes into account where you get hit, i.e. leg shots slow you and prevent sprinting, arm shots throw off aiming, headshots OHK.

Also I want an FPS that takes the most fun, crazy guns from tons of different FPS games and tosses them all into one ridiculously unbalanced shooter.

My opinion on FPSes? They're cool, but WAY overrated!

deadpool6365
01-18-2012, 02:22 PM
My current opinion on FPS is that I'm sick and tired of it, especially the current lineup for late 2011 (BF3, MW3). I don't know about you guys, but I think the post effects on most of the new games nowadays is making me dizzy, especially with the motion blur. :/ I can't play FPS as I used to when I was like what, 13? Secondly, maybe it's not an easy concept of implementing but the current storylines in recent FPS games just suck. Period. I wonder if they could do what some FPS (the original half life, Bioshock 1 & 2) did. Those are amazing and I wish some of the developers put a bit more effort in creating something deeper than some overrated action wannabe war flick. :(

I'm not saying I hate the genre, I just think they just need improving. I'm looking forward to Bioshock Infinite though. :)

T1B3R1U5
01-19-2012, 04:45 PM
Okay, okay, okay. I have to have an opinion on deadpool's post here. I have to agree with it's getting old and it just isn't any better than playing any other game (considering the overall "hating" of the CoD series period.) I would rather play CS:Source or CS:1.6, ArmAII, Red Orchestra, or something similar. Being able to get a headshot while having to compensate with the windage, elevation, etc is so much more satisfying than grazing someone's head on CoD and calling it a headshot. (<--which has happened, I have YouTube vids of it.) But overall, I agree with the whole war flick shit. Why have the story of a fricking Micheal Bay Film? O.o I'd rather play Condemned on a saturday night.
