The fact that you didn't mention Titanfall 2 is criminal
you call this a list of best first person shooters? except for doom, they all suck!
How the f is 2007 not COD 4 ………
Personally, I think Deep Rock Galactic had to be a strong contender for 2018, and I'm kinda surprised Dusk beat it out. TF2 was on the list though, so atleast that's spot on.
Sad apex legends fan noises
sucks Titanfall 2 was released the same year as OW.
I don't trust your opinion cause you rated overwatch over doom in 2016
Pretty much spot on, but where is Doom, Unreal Tournament, Bulletstorm, Spec Ops The Line, CoD Warzone ?
2007 CoD MW????
I understand them limiting franchises but it should've been limited to 2 per franchise ..Black ops was dope and Black Ops II remains my favorite for multiplayer but overall neither of those 2 are better than Modern Warfare 1 or 2 and neither Titanfall on this list is crazy
All the games on here are good, but Halo 3, COD4, Halo Reach, BF Bad Company 1 and 2, World at War, Modern Warfare 2, Modern Warfare, Apex, any of these could have taken a spot. I understand that some of them came out in the same year but still
Overwatch is a copy of Paladins, why is destiny 2 on here it's free now and has been for awhile it did terrible.
TF 2 over Bioshock and Modern Warfare in 07??? Say whaa
I’m sorry but 2012 shoulda been Bo2. Literally best game of that year and there’s no changing that. Change Bo1 and make it right
How the hell are Crysis and COD MW1 not on this list?
Where is Halo3?
Ok here’s why this countdown is complete trash, and not based on real gamers compiling this list. Halo 2, Battlefield 2:Modern Combat, Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty 4:Modern Warfare, MW2, COD 5:WAW, yes these were genre defining games and you missed them. It’s mind blowing to me even if you discount all the others, which you really can’t, how HALO 2 is not on this list. Worst gaming countdown ever, and whomever is in charge of this dumpster fire should be put in the mail room. I’m sure I even missed some, please anyone help me out here…
Hell-o aka Halo the best on the list
Man this guys voice is hard to handle
How does one of the crisis games not make this list …
Halo CE is actually my favorite FPS game. Surprised 2016 wasn’t Titanfall 2 though.
Before watching, it should be halo CE for 2001, halo 2 for 2004, halo 3 for 2007
How do you fuck up putting Halo 3 in the title with a caption of 2001. Did you forget what games looked like back then?
I haven’t watch the video yet but I just wanted to point out that the 2001 photo on the thumbnail is actually from Halo 3 and that came out in 2007. It is the original Halo CE helmet so I understand.
People liked destiny 2 that much?
the fuck out of here
Im sorry…overwatch is way overrated…doom 2016 was a hell of alot better (pun intended)
the silly thing is even the 2016 Game awards declared DOOM 2016 as the best shooting game that year despite the fact they hate doom. so Overwatch was silly and including online FPS :/ lol
metro is better than modern warfare ? bruh..
I was dissapointed that destiny 2 was best 2017 fps and not titanfall 2 🙁
Halo combat evolved
2021 : Halo Infinite mostly……!!!!
I would've replaced Overwatch with the Doom reboot.
Halo is still king of the hill 👑❤️
Far Cry 2 is vastly overrated, maybe it works as a philosophical statement but it doesn't as a game.
Im waiting for black ops 2 and 3-.. Those were popular
2019 should’ve gone to Apex legends
Hoping that HALO INFINITE will be 2021s best fps shooter
U are saying halo 3 didn't make this list
Chief : I need a weapon
Who remembers uberstrike😭
I bet 2007 was a hard one
Umm…Doom 3? Rage 2? BioShock 1? Doom 2016? Quake 4? You guys literally did mostly Valve games and games no one really cared for
personally 2012 should be black ops 2
No Modern Warfare? The greatest COD ever? Or freaking Bioshock 1??
Also, Far Cry 2's Malaria system broke the game for me.
Doom eternal is hands down the best FPS I’ve played in over a decade
I am disgusted Halo Reach isn’t on this list. Easily a Top 3 game of all time
2007 should've been Crysis
they chose tf2 over halo 3 and bioshock
oh yes and cod 4 and and left4 dead
Can you do third person next
Or hack and slash
