Titanfall 2 really should've made 2016 tho
Why was 2007 not Call of Duty: Modern Warfare?
2010 with Black Ops and 2011 with Battlefield 3 is nice.. but no Call of Duty 4?
Titanfall 2> overwatch
This list should have Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare rather than Black Ops
far cry 2 was lit
2012: Had to be Black Ops 2 imo
2003 IGI is the best
there is so much wrong with this list but i mean this is watchmojo so i dont know what else i really expected
For 2008 I woulda gave it to Left for Dead 1 instead of far cry 2. After all u did just say today that left for dead 2 was overrated and shoulda just been dlc :). 2009 should be borderlands 1. 2012 shoulda be Far Cry 3 . That was game of the year contender and put the far cry series on the map for a reason. Before that they were low key
What about black ops 2 mw2 mw3? Hell even mw2019/warzone?
Anyone remember Timesplitters?
Still playing it
Cod 4:MW needs to be best 2007 fps game!
Before Call Of Duty, There's Half Life
2000:Soldier of Fortune
2007:Call of Duty 4 or BioShock or Stalker
2008:Left 4 Dead 1
2009:Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2
2016:Doom or Titanfall 2
2017:CoD WWII or Wolfenstein 2
I’m glad Resistance and F.E.A.R. Get recognition. Those are 2 franchises that deserve sequels, remasters or reboots.
Far cry 6??😢
Counter strike for sure
im suprised to not have seen planetside 2 in here
6:10 wtf no halo 3
2:00 "Well-balanced weapons"
Oh yeah, totally balanced. No such thing as an M6D ever existed.
XIII: When ubisoft can made good games not just buggy craps
I am very disapointed, counter strike global ofensive must be here
I have fun playing 4 shooters. Halo, Call of Duty, Gears of War, and DOOM.
Destiny 2 is crap
The Karlson demo should be for 2021.
I feel like halo 3 should've been the choice for the franchise
destiny 2 haha funny
Half Life 2 is a no brainer
While Counter-Strike is great, I'd switch the 2000 spot for Perfect Dark.
Should have been Unreal Tournament 2004 instead of Half-Life 2.
2007 should've been COD4
I like doom 3 more than half life 2
Hey they said doom eternal is one of the best FPS games something actually correct for once
how the hell is doom not here it made this genre a thing
My favorite Shooting Games
DOOM ETERNAL. PERIOD.
Valorant : U didn't forget about me do u???
Titanfall for 2014? Doom 2016 or Titanfall 2? OVERWATCH WHY!!?
Didn't make it to the list
It's just me or overwatch is just an evolution of Team Fortress??
really? 2016 is overwatch? why isnt it doom 2016?
Soldier Of Fortune (2000)
Return To Castle Wolfenstein (2001)
No One Lives Forever 2: A Spy In H.A.R.M.'S Way (2002)

Destiny 2 (2017) lol crap game
Insurgency: Sandstorm (2018)
Metro Exodus (2019)
Doom Ethernal (2020)
3x better list 2 craps but 2x more amazing games
Battlefield 3 and the 2010 Medal of Honor are two of the best FPS campaigns I've ever played
He didn't say COD4 or BF Bad Company 2
for today, i think nr 1 is Valorant
i am a bit off , from the technology , because i am sceptic
intel didnt succeded to make cpu faster than 560 Mhz,
and AMD reached 430 Mhz
this is, because – a clock that Intel was suggested by S3 specialists
to provide help for Virge , and multi thread ,
prevents the Cpu from having top speed – instead the clock
is controlling – the central unit , and "thats all folks"
14:53 I feel like something is missing in-between those two DLC's
