10 First Person Shooters You Need To Play

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare came along and changed the multiplayer scene forever. Multiplayer was barely starting to become a thing but Call of Duty showed us just how fun it could be to play against other player-controlled teams. Thus first-person shooters began to thrive and many new ones were introduced. Nowadays the FPS genre is massive. There are countless new series being introduced yearly. From shooters that feature giant mechs to stealth-based tactical espionage missions. The genre is constantly evolving and introducing new mechanisms that hope to be the next big innovation. It could be a lot to take in for someone that just wants a simple FPS to get into or to explore the genre a little differently.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 – Treyarch

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is such a versatile shooter that mixes the Call of Duty formula with a futuristic war and technologically advanced weaponry. It’s is probably our favorite Call of Duty game because of how well it balances the futuristic weaponry, versatile maps, and the advanced movement that players can do. instead of opting for the normal run and gun, Black Ops 3 allows you to sport a jet back, run on walls, and boost your slide. This makes for some incredibly diverse gameplay mechanics that will have you trying to learn a map so that you can properly perform a flank on the enemy team. The story mode is also fully cooperative so you can play through the whole thing with friends. Not to mention that Black Ops 3 took their Zombies mode to the next level. With the inclusion of gumballs and highly interactive maps that each had their own special weapon to make use of during the Easter Egg. The multiplayer was also incredibly fun and competitive. Due to the extra imagination that had to go into each map, the developers truly went above and beyond in crafting some beautiful terrains for the players to compete on.

Titanfall 2 – Respawn

Titanfall 2 really changed the game when it came to competitive shooters. You can say that in a way it paved the way for Black Ops 3. It presented us with a much faster pace and allowed us to choose different abilities that would help us out in combat. Back then this was unheard of in a multiplayer game because you wouldn’t want to feel like anyone was getting the upper hand because of a gimmick. Titanfall 2 balances everything out so well that it never felt like this. Not to mention that you could call down your very own Titan. Being in a mech suit while taking down enemy players feels pretty sweet.

Apex Legends – Respawn

Apex Legends is what came from the same people that brought you Titanfall 2. They took away the mechs and dived deeper into the abilities that Pilots could have. They fleshed them out and thus Apex Legends were born. It’s a battle royale-style game which means that you’re dropped into a giant arena where you must work to be the last team standing. The inclusion of abilities makes it much more tactful and using them correctly could be the difference between life and death.

Battlefield – Dice

Battlefield has evolved over the years. That could be good or bad depending on how you feel about the direction they took with Battlefield 3. Battlefield Bad Company started as a storyline first-person shooter that prioritized narrative. Battlefield 3 promised to be a rival to Call of Duty and a breath of fresh air with the inclusion of vehicles and much larger battles. It is definitely different but it does include some of the most epic battles that you’ll ever see in a first-person game. Buildings falling down, tanks, and exploding helicopters. There is a lot to take in here.

Resistance – Insomniac

Resistance is a great narrative-driven first-person shooter that takes us on a dark and gritty tale about the world being overrun by a race of alien creatures and the depths that people will take to save humanity. It’s made from Insomniac which many of us know because of Ratchet and Clank and Marvel’s Spiderman. It’s a lot of fun and Insomniac definitely brings along their love for quirky weapons with it.

Killzone Shadowfall – Guerilla Games

Killzone Shadowfall came out with the Playstation 4 and it is beautiful. It was used to showcase the power of the PS4 and at the time it was mesmerizing. There was no game out there that was even close to showcasing the PS4’s graphics in the way that Killzone did it. It’s worth trying out just to experience that.

Halo 3 – Bungie & 343

Halo 3 is probably one of the most fun multiplayer games you could ever enjoy. It’s fun and addicting. With no option to run it really pushes players to be tactful and choose their fights. Halo Infinite seems to be a return to form for the franchise which seems to have been struggling to find itself since Bungie departed to work on Destiny.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2 – Ubisoft

When you want to go for a game that features a little more realism and a stellar horde mode and story mode then look no further than Rainbow Six Vegas 2. Although it might be a little hard to get your hands on a copy because it was released back with the Playstation 3. But we have nothing but fond memories of it.

Borderlands 2 – Gearbox

Borderlands 2 is the most complete and addictive loot and shoot game that we’ve experienced to date. With gameplay mechanics that leave us exploring every class as much as we can and a villain who we just can’t seem to get enough of, Borderlands 2 does a stellar job at delivering a worthwhile and unique experience in the FPS world.

Destiny – Bungie

What happens when the creators of Halo want to expand their horizons and dive into the multiplayer landscape? Well, Destiny is what happens. It supports up to three-person multiplayer to traverse the whole story and pushes players to find the best equipment and weapons available. It’s a blast and we definitely recommend hopping in the crucible and seeing if you have what it takes to hang with the best of them.
