Oh, and Day of Defeat. A relatively unknown multiplayer shooter wich however was thrilling and exciting. Challenging and scary as Ghost Recon, but set in WW2

Actually it was the original Wolfstein 3d that started the FPS genre. DOOM IMHO started the horror survival genre.

Well, some games like Alone in the Dark started the survival horror thing. Doom was more a landmark of sort for FPS genre.

 

By the way, a more full list, but a very 1990's one since I hadn't played much F.P.S. since:

 

- Jedi Knight ( a gem)

- Jedi Knight II (a second gem)

- Skynet (I loved the easter eggs -tech noir!!!- and I am quite fond of the first two terminator movies.)

- Doom, I remember being scared as hell in some corridors...

- Played a little bit of Duke Nukem 3D and met, well, hookers.

- Goldeneye on N64 had an awesome multiplayer mode.

Here's mine, and why:

 

1. Battlefield 3, before whatever the hell patch nerfed the AA gun and tank buckshot: 64 player MP, assortement of tanks, fighting vehicles, planes and heloes, well presented, good looks, good gameplay (much more important than looks!), and the AA gun could be used as a general fighting vehicle as one would expect of a small tank with a 25mm or 30mm cannon on the top.  Also, a helicopter getting hit by about 50 tungsten balls at point blank range isn't going to be flying anymore...why the hell did they change it?

 

2. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare: It had good balance, the perks weren't super OP'd, it wasn't just a matter of "spawn-kill-die, spawn-kill-die" like later titles, and it was still MOD-ABLE!  Played on Counterstrike maps, earlier COD maps, all sorts of maps and weapon mods could be gotten FOR FREE.  No paying Activision!

 

3. Insurgency: Feels like a cross between COD 4 and Rainbow Six 3 in my own opinion, but for only $15 at full price.  Has content patches, free maps, etc...basically everything that made MW good, and apart from playing well, it looks pretty damn good too, all at 1/4 the base asking price of the latest COD/BF titles WITHOUT the $15/per expansions.  Also, the damage models seem to have been highly influenced by the old-school Rainbow Six titles...when you get shot, you generally die unless you're lucky, and I like that!  Speaking of R6...

 

4. Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield: Bringing the R6 line up to more modern standards, RS3:RS was a lot of fun because you couldn't just run around and gun people willy-nilly.  You had to concern yourself with hostage rescue, stealth, and the fact that the enemy was armed with assault rifles, and you only had Kevlar.  As such, single hits were usually enough to drop someone.  It required thinking, and that's what I feel made it so good.

 

5. Battlefield 1942 with DC mod: This one came out during that span of time when a ridiculous number of WWII FPS's came out.  The game itself was great, 64 player MP that the series became known for, tanks, planes, ships, and all sorts of goodies to use in a massive battle.  But what really sold it for me was the Desert Combat mod, which added in modern equipment when modern FPS's were sorely lacking (ironic now that that's almost all we see).  M1A1's, Bradleys, T-72's, F-14's, MiG-29's...it was great.

 

6. Ghost Recon: The original Ghost Recon was almost like Rainbow Six, but with significantly larger maps.  The reason I like it is the same reason I liked the early (pre-Vegas) R6 installments: you actually had to think about what you were doing, scout the area, and not move recklessly before engaging the enemy.

 

7. Blood 2: An older game, Blood 2 was somewhat akin to Quake, but with a hilarious voice-over commentator during multi-play.  It's story was chalk full of dark comedy as well.  What else to say but it was a lot of fun.

 

8. Unreal Tournament: Another older game, UT had excellent modability.  I recall the ridiculousness of some of the weapons, like the Quantum Singularity Generator, Rail Gun, Redeemer...it was a blast.

 

9. Rainbow Six: The original R6 almost looks like you took Resident Evil 1 or 2 and put a 1st person camera into your character nowadays, but back then, it was cutting edge.  Still, like the later title R6:3, it was very strategic for a tactical shooter.  

 

10. Doom: How could this one not be in here?  Multiplayer capable, very linear, but with great weapons and progressively harder levels, Doom, I feel, was a great step forward from Wolf 3D, and stands to this day as one of the most fun FPSs out there.
