5. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
6. Halo: Combat Evolved
7. Quake
8. Half-Life
9. Duke Nukem 3D
10.Mass Effect 2

in top 50 there should be also: BioShock, Fallout, Blood, Shadow Warrior (original DOS version), Doom 2, Counter Strike, Smokin' Guns

Mass Effect is not first-person.

If more FPSs had Mecha Hitler I'd be more interested in this genre.

3rd person shooters > first person shooters

The FPS genre is great, it gave us really fantastic atmospheric, medium pushing games games like Deus Ex, STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl and System Shock 2.

Unfortunately people play play generic trash like Goldeneye and Call of Duty and write the entire genre off as trash, which is sad.

This top 10 is weird btw. I would've thought the top 4 would have been something like:

1. DOOM
2. Half-Life 2
3. Deus Ex
4. System Shock 2

I'm sorry, no matter what the bias is, I can't see any objective reason GoldenEye shouldn't be top 3.

You get to play as James Bond through a James Bond movie! How the fuck is that generic?

How in the fuck is Goldeneye generic? Was there any game quite like it before it came out? The spy mission element definitely made it stand out from other games in the genre and made it feel like more than a shooter.

It's one of the few FPSs I give a fuck about, along with Metroid Prime and anything Id Software was involved with, the game has it's flaws sure but I think it's held up better than people give it credit for, because at the end of the day it's still fun as fuck and still succeeds as an immersive James Bond game, I love it and FPS is by far my least favorite genre, so it must be doing something right.

Avery Island reinforces my belief that PC gamers are nothing more than the indie fags of gaming.
