TenSpot is back for another edition of Readers' Choice. Several weeks ago you read what the GameSpot editors considered the top 10 first-person shooters of all time. We defined first-person shooters as action games, first and foremost, thus eliminating games like Deus Ex and Morrowind from contention because those are really role-playing games at heart. We then presented our list, which included a nice mix of classic and contemporary games that we felt represented the genre best.
At the end of that feature, we gave you a chance to vote and make your voice heard. We read you loud and clear and tallied up thousands of votes. In the end you saw mostly eye to eye with us, but there were a couple of games that made the readers' choice list but didn't make it into the editors' list. Which ones were they? Read on to find out.
Remember, TenSpot lists are not presented in any particular order. Just because one game appears at the front or the end doesn't necessarily mean it got more votes or fewer votes than another game in the middle of the feature. First-person shooters are so popular and have become so refined that it's almost pointless to try to specify a difference between the top games; it should be enough to say that these are the best of the best, and they stand together in their greatness.
