The Top 5 FPS Games Of All Time: Do You Know Them? 2021


Throughout the history of video games, first-person shooters (FPS) have always been the pioneers of new technology, graphics and gameplay. As we enter a new generation of gaming with the release of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, it’s worth looking back at the FPS titles which changed gaming forever.

Wolfenstein 3D

Introducing frantic gameplay and an innovative graphics engine, Wolfenstein 3D is considered to be the granddaddy of the FPS genre. Although its engine was more 2.5D than 3D, the way Wolfenstein mapped textures and graphics helped create a playable environment that you could completely explore.

Duke Nukem 3D

Duke Nukem 3D was a mix of cheesy 80s action movies and bizarre sci-fi. The controversial and violent game was way ahead of its time with the introduction of interactive environments, tight shooting mechanics and advanced level design.

Unreal Tournament

The Quake series is credited with introducing multiplayer to the FPS genre, but Unreal Tournament is responsible for refining the mechanics and gameplay of fighting against other players. With modes like team deathmatch, capture the flag, and domination, Unreal Tournament set the standard for FPS multiplayer.

Half-Life

One of the most critically acclaimed video games of all time, Half-Life’s ambition transcended the FPS genre. Half-Life revolutionised gaming by using scripted events to create a tense, action-packed and always surprising gaming experience.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

Modern Warfare 2 brought the Call of Duty franchise to next generation consoles and, in doing so, changed the FPS genre forever. The game’s single player mode is still one of the most immersive and cinematic stories in gaming history, and it’s online multiplayer completely changed the way gamers played against each other online.
