10. Apex Legends

Trust Respawn when it comes to games like Fortnite and PUBG and ask the impossible: What if those games felt good?

With nimble movement and powerful guns, Apex Legends is one of the best shooters out there, and by far the smoothest battle royale.

With its pool of Legends – each with different abilities – an interesting arsenal, multiple different maps, and a high skill cap, it’s no wonder it’s dominating the Steam charts.


In the 90’s, Rare was the developer king and gave us some of the best games for the N64.

Besides its popular character platformers, Rare has also developed the two best FPS games for console: Perfect Dark and GoldenEye 007.

Perfect Dark is probably the better game technically, but it’s the James Bond shooter that people remember most fondly.

GoldenEye 007 was many people’s first experience of multiplayer shooter action, and it featured a variety of game modes.

From normal play to one hit kills to leveling up with an overpowered super weapon, GoldenEye 007 has changed the way we play FPS multiplayer.

Combine this with its excellent single player story mode and you have a really excellent game all around.

8. New Pokemon Snap

We may have loosely understood the importance of shooting here, but we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to sing the praises of New Pokémon Snap.

Think of it as a stealth shooter where you sneak through different Pokémon habitats and stealthily take them out.

Similar to a regular FPS, you’re still trying to find the right angle to shoot the Pokemon from, usually unnoticed.

The new Pokémon Snap introduces puzzle elements to the genre, in which you perform various actions to get Pokémon to position themselves.

Free DLC has been released for this game, giving shooter fans who aren’t too into multiplayer (and violence) more options.

7. Titanfall 2

Titanfall 2 is one of the best FPS games ever, as the game reinvents itself every few levels.

The most talked about mission, effect and cause, is the perfect example of this.

When players first saw the “Press X to Time Travel” prompt, they knew Titanfall 2 was going to be a very different game.

Aside from its frantic main campaign, there’s also its tactical, parkour-fueled multiplayer.

You play as a mech pilot wielding a tank-sized robot, but it feels just as good being outside of the cockpit, dashing across every vertical surface that crosses your path.

It sounds totally unbalanced, but Titanfall 2 somehow pulls it off perfectly.

6. Team Fortress 2

Before Fortnite made cartoony shooters famous, Team Fortress 2 first defined the genre.

Back when Valve made games and didn’t sell them through Steam, it was one of the best developers in the business.

Team Fortress 2 works well because although there are nine different classes to choose from, they all feel balanced and have counterplay.

Every member of your team is vital, from snipers to melee fighters to experienced medics.

Team Fortress 2 brings humor to the multiplayer FPS genre.

Even after 23 years, it will still make you smile.

5. Quake

When we talk about influential shooters, Quake is where many started.

With its huge modding community, many gaming and industry professionals got their start right here.

Placing medieval knights in space, Quake pushed the boundaries of what a shooter could be with fiendishly difficult levels and outrageous themes.

The standard of level design created by original developer id Software and passionate modders remains among the best in gaming.

It’s a high bar that many games have since tried and failed to meet.

4. Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus took the FPS playbook and threw it out the window.

Focus on creating an interesting world with lively characters, and every weapon you use makes you feel like you’re dealing with greasy Victorian machines.

Wield the dual-wield submachine gun and show the Nazis what for while navigating the narrow corridors of a Zepplin in a wheelchair.

The dialogue alternates between deep social commentary and serious engagement with taboo subjects.

Wolfenstein 2 shows gamers that not every FPS has to be a multiplayer game.

3. Half-Life

In this list, we could have replaced New Pokémon Snap with Portal’s puzzles, and fear being called Valve Simps.

But the truth is, Valve has made incredible, groundbreaking shooters, and Half-Life is one of the best.

Half-Life changed the rules of FPS games. You no longer had to be some crazy muscleman running around shooting down everything in sight.

Instead, we play as scientist Gordon Freeman trying to figure out how his collaborators were misled.

It opened up a whole new way of telling stories in FPS games through atmosphere, puzzles and NPC encounters.

After Gordon’s time in the test chamber, shooters were never the same.

2. sinking

We all know it has to be up here because we all know the doom is good. sinking is very good.

Doom brought shooters into the mainstream as you run around blowing up Hell’s spawn, and there’s a reason people kept playing.

With levels so deep to explore, Doom introduced a level of replayability that players had never seen before.

While later Doom titles like Doom 2016 are both very good and give you the same high as you play, the original set the guidelines.

Doom should never stop being celebrated. It should never stop playing.

Start it now. You will not regret it.

1. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

While Team Fortress 2 started out as a Quake mod, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive started out as a Half-Life mod that eventually surpassed the original.

The fact that it hasn’t changed much since then and that people continue to play it shows how strong the original design was.

CS:GO added tactical elements to shooters that weren’t as common before its release.

You never just plant bombs or extract hostages – you do all of this while thinking two turns ahead.

You work as a team. You work efficiently. You do all this or you don’t stand a chance.

The perfect combination of shooting skill and tactical prowess.
