Killzone 3 for me had the best melee system, it destroys a game like Dead Island or Skyrim on melee, the feedback and satisfaction is total.

Counterstrike 1.6, because you actually have to work for that melee kill making it so much more satisfying in the end. Also, Quake 3.

Condemned had a pretty solid system once you got the hang of it.

Go hunt down a copy of Condemned 2. 90% of the game is First Person Melee (FPS other 10%) and that game was a blast to play.

Wasn't Condemned a horror game presented in first person view though?

FEAR 1 for me,with all those kicks...

Today,as a PC gamer,I don't like melee in many games,since they're console ports,you press the melee button,and the game unnaturally pulls you towards the enemy you are attacking,which is most notable in CoD games...

Yes, but melee combat represented a large chunk of the game.

Because of the incredibly tense atmosphere, the melee system was complimented very nicely.

It was also satisfying and had great feedback.

Everyone forgot about Breakdown on Xbox? That was the best first person melee and good game too.

Even though it's a adventure/stealth/FPS hybrid, gonna mention Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay.

I'll go with Killzone 3, those kills look so brutal and amazing and it's almost like you can feel the force of the knife on the guy, not like CoDs cat-attack melee hits.

Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict. Half of the game's focus was on melee and a pretty good system at that. Also, stop mentioning the Condemned series. It's a first person brawler/horror game that has you occasionally shooting guns; it's not a shooter.

Jedi Knights II


SWTOR would be a lot better game if they implemented a similar system alongside the traditional MMO hotkeys. But Bioware didn't do that and won't, and instead of being good it's terrible.

Aliens Vs Predator, Darkness 2 is pretty good from what I played so far, and Dead Island was fairly good. Killzone 3 is push one button as are all of the others, I don't think you're asking the question you think you are, if you meant most satisfying melee kills then I could understand, even still AvP would still win.

Zeno Clash, although it's not really fair as it's more of a first person brawler than an FPS.

But Condmned isn't a FPS (read: First PersonShooter). Don't understand why people aren't making that distinction.

Skyrim also lets me cook food, I guess it's a cooking simulator. The Condemned series has never been marketed as an First Person Shooter because it isn't one. You spend like 10% of the games using guns and the rest using melee weapons and your fists. How does that 10% instantly quantify the games as being shooters?

Left 4 Dead 2 has by far the best melee combat in any shooter. The weapons feel great, the dismemberment is insanely detailed. You really feel like you're cutting your way through a large battle sometimes.

It doesn't matter how fun they are in the end; even when you do find a gun in Condemned or Condemned 2 you barely get to use it because ammo is incredibly scarce...I actually did enjoy using the guns when I got the chance though. And Condemned is an FPS, anyway...It has guns and you shoot from the first person perspective; what other requirements are there..?

Does anybody even care how the game was marketed? No, they don't.

The game is an FPS because that's what it is; I guess you could classify it as a First Person Combat game or something...but it is still an FPS by default.

There's nothing to get...FPS is a genre and every genre has a grey area. You can't say Fallout is exclusively an FPS or an RPG because it is both. Not every game made is going to fall neatly into a genre. Condemned is just as much an FPS as it is a horror game.

But you barely use guns! How the hell do you call something a shooter where you barely even shoot!?

That makes no sense whatsoever.

Condemned had a pretty solid system once you got the hang of it.

balfe1990

Condemed was the other way around, more of a BEMUP with some shooting here and there. I don't remember clearly but I think you couldn't even reload weapons, they were just like power items that you got here and there on levels. There was just like one level that focused on shooting.

I have to agree with this
