Shoot-em-ups? If we are talking in terms of sheer frag-fests, then I would have to go with these...(subject to change without notice)

1. Unreal Tournament
2. Serious Sam
3. Doom
4. Soldier Of Fortune
5. Quake I

If we are talking FPS's in general, however, it would definitely be...

1. Jedi Knight
2. Half Life
3. No One Lives Forever
4. ST Voyager Elite Force
5. Red Faction

That's a bit of a difference, isn't it? :D

Hmm, tough to choose, but the list is probably something like this.

1 - Return to Castle Wolfenstein
2 - Max Payne
3 - Unreal Torunament
4 - Elite Force
5 - Giants - Citizen Kabuto

Serious Sam and Quake 1 & 2 also rank high.

If you're wondering why JK and HL didn't make my list, then you should know that I'm sick and tired of both of'em... ;)

100% agreement..
But Max Payne and Serious Sam have to fit in there somewhere;)

BTW- It wasn't a shooter, but Sam 'N' Max Hit the Road is definitely one of my all time fav's.
(as if you couldnt'a guessed ;))

You seem to have overlooked soem great shooters like avp2, RTCW and Ghost Recon... All great games. i think Ghost recon is just as fun as max payne and avp2 more fun....

1. Jedi Outcast, if I put Obi-Wan here some may get angry...
2. Obi-Wan, and I didn't finish the game yet!
3. Jedi Knight and MOTS
4. HalfLife and all addons, still best multi-player
5. Project IGI by EIDOS, not talked about much but still a great single player game.

you like IGI also, wow, i think the game is pretty cool, but have never heard of anyone else likeing it, or even heard anything about it... defently a good SP game..

I don't have 5, since most First-person Shooters are dull. Get the power-up,...get a stronger weapon...run around and blast things ...BORING!

However, if you want a chalange, try either of the two THIEF games. It, too is first-person, but the point is NOT to shoot anyone. Instead, you have to find ways to sneak around them.

It is far more challenging and far more suspenseful when you can't kill anyone.

i think this topic should have been called you "10 best GAMES ever!" that way we could talk about other great games that are NOT fps. shooters are good but i wanna know what eveyone's 10 most fav games.

IGI is excellent, I love it. I recently got accepted for the IGI 2 beta , so I'm very excited about that. =)

Well.... maybe your mind has been brain-washed since palying doom 1? Most fps's nowadays have a great stroyline, great interactivity, great mp, decent music score, good graphics, fun and much more.. Though what u said is though your not a mindless killing machine *cough* unreal-tournmanet *cough* but ur not a strategy boy... so ur a netral sort of thing which means u'll settle for stealthy games.. like thief and hitman. There's 2 games that have 3 angle's 2 them.... killing everything,stealthy and strategy for getting by obstacles( with the exceptio of the odd feast). AvP and AvP2. Marine=killing --- Predator=stealth --- alien=strategy. That's why i quite admire the game.. 3 in one.. a game for every player it seems.. i'm pretty open-minded so i like most genres.
Also just to point something out to you... er JO is a fps? jsut gotta tell ya so you're not disapointed ;)

Sorry, never played it. Jedi Knight and Mysteries of the Sith left a bad enough taste in my mouth to avoid the standard, brainless FPS. Although, I gave them another shot recently and...

Name one. Just one. Even THIEF had a pretentious, simpleton storyline.
... but ur not a strategy boy...
Wrong, I am, and there is little strategy to the standard FPS...even the current ones.

System Shock 2, Clive Barker's Undying, and Deus Ex had some of the best stories ever in a game, and they were all FPS.:)

U never played doom? i can understand wolfenstien but doom.. come on. Also JK has a decent storyline. And games are meant to be fun.. not a film if u want that get Wind Commander Series.

Yeh.. try some more games.... just avoid some really rubbish games. like fish tank tycoon (that should get a bloody 2%.. it got 8%) OF kicks some ass so does igi. Also Ghost Recon form what i've heard has a good storyline since Tom Clancy done some script.

Welcome to the forums, Vickey34. :D Hope you enjoy your stay. Here...

There you go. ;)

I'm going to add RTCW and AvP2 to my list (Santa was good enough to deliver them :D ). I've been playing SP since yesterday, and so far they are better than I expected. :)
