Yeah, Infinite was a bit of a letdown, but not enough for me not to love it. Love the atmosphere and story, and I didn't think the actual mechanics were as bad as lots of people seem to think. I got tons of enjoyment out of the skyline combat, and the vigor combos. The last time I tried to replay it, I did get bored and stop like halfway through, but that was an attempt at a 4th replay. Most single player campaign games would get boring by then. I did enjoy it thoroughly three times.

And yeah, I figured I'd call Bioshock 1 my favorite shooter, kind of by default, as it's my favorite game of the last gen. If I were to re-order my list, based entirely on the games' mechanical merits as shooters... All three Bioshocks would probably be knocked off completely, FEAR would be MUCH higher, as would Far Cry 3, and Crysis 2 and Counterstrike: Global Offensive probably would have made it.

Someone who likes Crysis 2? When I was a PC only gamer I got blasted for thinking it was the best in the series. I did not enjoy the first at all.

Hahaha. That sounds about right. I still think the first is far and away the best, if for no other reason than it being so much more open, plus I found the story far more interesting than in 2. But as for Crysis 2... it got shit on by PC gamers because many of us were extremely disappointed in the new direction of the game (smaller levels, more linear, stripped down suit functions, "cinematic" presentation), which was obviously targeted at the COD crowd, but I still think it's an incredible game, judged on its own merits. With Crysis 2, they wanted to make a more typical kind of modern/futuristic military style shooter, like a Battlefield or Call of Duty single player campaign, and as far as I'm concerned, they absolutely crushed that goal. It might not be as open, large and sandbox-ish as the original, but Crysis 2 is sure as hell more ambitious, interesting and unique than just about every other copy/paste military shooter of the last gen.

UGH, such a tough choice, KZ2 was my first FPS and it's multiplayer is great but SF does it better. Borderlands 2 I just got into thanks to plus and I can't put the game down at all,...so glad I could censor the gore. But I think I'll give this one to MAG shame on you if you played that game without a mic.

Perhaps I didn't approach the levels in fun and unique ways in the first. I really like the smaller, yet still open, levels in 2. Besides, I kind of had a feeling the elves were going to be smaller. It was going to be on the consoles, it was set in a city. I just had a feeling that they were going to have to tone the scale down some. That may not be the reason, but the point is I went into the game expecting smaller areas so I wasn't as letdown. The story was still not that great, but I found it better than the first. I really like the gunplay too. So much fun to be had. Oh yea, and I loved the Ceph in 2 better than the floating robots in the first. I will say one thing though, what in the hell was the point of having vehicles in the 2nd? YOu could barely do anything with them. I mean a damn pole, tire high, would stop you. I hated there was hardly no destruction in 2 also.

Then there is 3. IDK what the hell happened, but that game is probably my biggest letdown this year. IMO, it is easily the worst of the series. It's like the took the worst of 2, the worst 1 and made a game. I will say though, I really like some of the levels. For instance, the one where you destroy the AA guns towards the end. That was a nice mix of 2 and 1. Not as big as 1, but bigger than 2. A lot of cool ways to go about it too, and nice big open areas to drive.

Yeah, the lack of environmental destruction was one of the big letdowns in C2. And the vehicle sections were pretty much pointless. Unlike the vehicle sections of Crysis 1 (dat tank level.... so much awesome).

I was also pretty much expecting smaller levels from the city setting but, shortly before the game actually came out, I had this fantasy that the city levels would be just as big as the jungle levels of C1, involving climbing through destroyed buildings, and strength-jumping from rooftop to rooftop, in massive, open city blocks. I figured that was very unlikely, but damn it would have been sweet.

Maybe we will see something like that this gen. Not sure if I want another Crysis though. Crytek is kind of...well ISK what the hell is wrong with them.

Tough list as I had a list of 20 I narrowed down, and I'm certain I'm forgetting something. I enjoyed COD2, Deus Ex, Battlefield Bad Company, BF3, Halo3, Killzone 3, and various others I had to cut. I would have put in Portal and Portal 2, but I wasn't sure if they qualified as "FPS".

Since you said 2005/2013 I guess I could´ve included Battlefield 2 and SWAT 4 since both came out in 05 but it was before the 360 launched so I just left them out.

so...

HL episodes is not a game

Black mesa was decided not to count.

even if, HL episodes is not a game.
