in this thread we talk about 10 best FPS Single player campaign of all time? I'll start one game per franchise
10. Soldier of fortune 2 double helix
Excellent Gunplay, was very gory and violent.. game was incredible which is now sadly forgotten very fast. it was old school fast paced shooter where story was kinda like Deus Ex like based on conspiracy all over the world so if Deus Ex was pure FPS it would be soldier of fortune. John mullins is one badass and excellent Character too.
9. Chronicles of Riddick Escape from Butcher Bay
The best Movie licensce game ever or I would say only good one? the was the game combine FPS and stealth genre into one. has Excellent atmosphere and rival Half life 2 back in 2004 too.
Very first FEAR was unique FPS for its time and its gunplay is still unmatched and AI was excellent too. like when you open flashlight enemies yell :flashlight" and the slo mo feature was fantastic too make game more immersive and engaging. its level design is repetetive office door make this game low in my top 10 FPS list.
7. Return to Castle Wolfenstein
This was only only really great wolfenstien game since wolf 3d because 2009 one and new order are very mediocre. game has excellent variety, enemies from nazis, zombies to other creatures, to old school fast paced gameplay and one of the GOAT soundtracks.
When it was released many people only talk about graphics and benchmarking. it was very very demanding game at that time. but it was also very unique game too. with involving suit powers in semi open world sandbox enviroment. I even enjoy the second half that many people find boring. it was truly amazing game which franchise legacy ruined by dumbed down sequels
5. System shock 2
System shock 2 was very inspirational game. I did played it for the first time after i played bioshock infinite which i found real bad and i saw many people talk about bioshock series is spritual successor of system shock thus I finally got this from GOG and played it and Holy crap! it blew me away. it was very deep and complex game. and to this date games copy it today like dead space did, like new prey will do. it was core concept of FPS/RPG hybrid which inspired Deus Ex and make it even more excellent. bring on remake and system shock 3.
Doom 2016. only Modern FPS that is even in my top 5 let alone top 10 FPS of all time. and this prove developers can still make these type of games other than COD clones. and ID software did fantastic job. after Doom 3 which was excellent too was not really praised as Doom game but this game took the formula of classic doom and turn into modern and it works. level design are also excellent unlike modern FPS and not just go straight forward and cutscene after cutscene.
3. Stalker Shadow of chernoboyl
This was the most unique and innovative FPS of all time and still to this day after almost 10 years no other games feel that immersed in the world of zone. most immersive and atmospheric game of all time. 2007 was the time when FPS start feel stale with the released of COD4 and Halo 3. this game however was very unique.
2. Deus Ex
Like System shock 2 this game perfected FPS/RPG hybrid and bring it to new level. games like Deus Ex are the reason why even mass effect exist today. i played it for the first time before the anticipation of Deus Ex HR. and it ended one of my Fav game of all time. best story in FPS game, the perfect level design, this game sum up everything about gaming. the only reason why its not number 1 because this is the list of top 10 FPS not top 10 games and this game is no pure FPS game. its FPS, RPG and stealth genre into one.
1. Half life 2
Half life 2 was the game that change the landscape of FPS genre like first Half life raise the bar. Pacing of game is Excellent, the variety (from ravenholm to citadel), the level design, the gravity gun. Half life series is basically pioneer of storytelling in FPS genre and it tell incredible story without having a one single cutscene. many games still try to copy half life. shame we will never see another half life game in future again.
So what are top 10 best campaign of FPS you have ever played?
