FPS aren't as hot as they use to be. Sure, we still get the influx of Call Of Duty and Battlefield, but it's nowhere near the prevalence of early 2000's.

One upshot though, is that many have turned to making indie FPS based on old school (superior) shooters, for men who are very, very strong where you do more than walk in a straight line watching bad scripted attempts at being a Hollywood movie.

Would it be a fair assessment to proclaim this as the best FPS of the year, or does some other game win that accolade?

Metro Exodus is so far.

will be Doom Eternal later this year.

So no its not. far from it. instead it should have been free duke 3d mod instead of selling it at price. ie rip off.

But that exact same argument can be applied to Doom Eternal.

you mean running on entirely new engine. more ambitious project than previous, far more longer with more locations and variety.

i mean Doom Eternal is not just Hell on earth. it is set in Earth, Mars, Hell and heaven too.

id software have more talent in thier little fingers than these indie developers have.

kinda sad not many people Like Metro Exodus (and probably not many people here played it).

Its absolutely amazing game. with flaws. sure its not as good as 2033 and last light but still one of the finest game released this gen.

Doom 3 was also masterpiece. Rage 1 was ok. better than wacky wacky rage 2 develop by just cause developers.

Valve also made episode 1 which suck.

But Episode 1 is objectively better than any Metro game. The only bad part of the terrible escort section. Beyond that is has some of the best designed section in an FPS.

Agree?

This looks like it could hold my interest better than Metro has so far. Metro is a great game, but I find myself taking long breaks. This just looks incredibly fun. Void Bastards is also interesting, but i've only played that for about an hour.

After Half life 2. Episode 1 feel like too much step backward. if this was another developer. they would have been eaten alive. as EP1 was what equivalent to todays DLC or Epilogue DLC.

Its Episode 2 that was fantastic.

Episode 2 has better narrative, but gameplay wise Episode 1 is mostly better.

The main thing that elevated Episode 2 gameplay was the introduction of the Hunter which gives the humanoid combine the challenge they sorely lacked.

Episode 1 recycled alot of the settings and doesn't actually bring anything new beyond a new enemy, but it's sequences like the elevator siege, hospital and far more creatively done gunship fight as the roof gradually deteriorates after gameplay wise, a huge improvement.

I enjoyed what I played, and it's really kinda interesting. Progressing through ships based on a cursory analysis of the contents, and having to choose progression was kinda cool. The game also looked pretty damn nice.

Meh, it's an arcadey shooter. It depends on who you're asking. Some people prefer arcade shooters, some prefer realistic shooters. It's not really a question you can pose as an all or nothing question.

Not really my kind of thing. I’m leaning more towards Call of Duty: Modern Warfare or Doom Eternal myself.

@ghosts4ever: Any Half-Life game, even if its running on a rotten potato is still far better then any Metro game. Please stop with the ungodly horrible post, just stop.

I like arcadey FPS like this, og Doom, Blood, Duke 3D....

AND realistic like Operation Flashpoint: CWC, Hidden & Dangerous series, Rainbow 6 Raven Shield/ Rogue Spear, Swat 3/4...

It's the 'in between' shit like CoD, BF and the like which might give off the impression of being realistic at first glance, but in actuality is anything but.....that I'm not a fan of at all.

I don't really see the appeal, it looks like a game from 1995 and those games were pretty mediocre even at the time and things have moved on since then.

Then again I don't get a lot of these fake retro games, at the time the games were trying to be the best on the hardware they were running on, why makes games purposefully look like shit. I can understand if it's a game someones making in their spare time but not by a proper developer.

Don't know about bussinrounds but for me, I like all-around shooters in general really and I'll pick up Ion Fury whenever the next Steam sale starts but for now, I got too many games I'm playing now and still waiting for to be release.

Doom 3 is trash, and loved only by children and casuals like you n cup.

Manly men hardcore gamers know multiplayer FPS is the only real deal FPS, and that's arena FPS. Fast, high skill ceiling, no safety nets, FPS bliss. One day you will not be a casual..........Sike, you always gonna be a casual.

It looks pretty cool, but best FPS of the year? I really hope not. It shouldn't be that easy to get that title.

I'm guessing DOOM Eternal will be the best one. Metro Exodus already failed.

Edit: And dudes. Both DOOM 3 and Resident Evil 4 are great videogames. So is Unreal Tournament. stfu already.

you have not played it yet.

its 20 hours non linear SP FPS. although its scripted too like previous ones.

but Doom Eternal will also be 20 hour long FPS so obviously will be better now. but still Metro Exodus is Excellent.

its like Crysis 1 all over again.

Doubt it. Crysis was more of a sandbox than Exodus. Crysis had fast paced, innovative and varied gameplay. Metro is sluggish. Metro is more scripted.

DOOM's gonna poo all over it.

Crysis only have advantage that is gameplay. atmosphere and story wise. Metro own it.

Crysis is more sandbox?? clearly you have yet to played Exodus before making such claim. Metro Exodus is twice as bigger than Crysis ever was. in term of length and scale both.

infact Crysis after second half become linear.

Crysis was Excellent sure. but in same year STALKER SoC completely destroy it in literally every year.

As in the only part of the game that matters.
