10 Best PC FPS Games (First-Person Shooters)!
Team Fortress 2
Before team-based shooters hit the mainstream, there was Team Fortress 2. Valve’s creation from the Source engine gave light to a whole new competitive multiplayer action. This came from the ashes of the original game that was released as a mod feature for Quake in 1999. Choose from 9 unique classes that will ultimately shape the way you play. The game is separated between two teams: the Red Team and the Blue Team. These two will clash in a battle of wits, reflexes and skills through the game’s various modes including Capture The Flag and King Of The Hill. Critics have praised the game’s humor, fast-paced action, and of course, the price…it’s free to play.
This is a rebirth of a series that had its last release more than a 10 years ago. After years of delays, our favorite Doomguy returns to bring terror and destruction to the poor, poor demons ravaging Mars. The game still has the same elements from the previous titles but the shooting, killing and gore have been amplified to a phenomenal degree. The birth of high-definition gameplay makes the game a magnitude clearer and faster than its predecessors. Duh. It’s not the same pixelated classic players know before. Gameplay includes multiplayer, which by far, is the weakest feature in the game. However, the shooting and killing is still the best part of this release. Seeing the hero initiate a Glory Kill to the myriad of demons with different weapons is just so satifying!
Far Cry 3
Sucks to have the time of your life getting ruined by crazy pirates. Follow Jason Brody and his friends after they’re kidnapped during their Bangkok vacation. Taken hostage by a psychopathic madman that doesn’t even know the definition of insanity. It’s the first Far Cry game to feature an open-world element. Travel to a tropical island filled with dangerous wildlife, deadly tribesmen, trippy drugs and blazing guns. The best part of this game is the freedom to make the world your own playground. Take over watchtower stations, slay pirates and save your friends. Critics have praised its immersive take on dangerous wildlife and the reactive atmosphere of the game. The story is also the central core to most critic reviews, and said it’s the best Far Cry story yet. It’s also the first game to feature multiple endings. And it’s disturbing as hell.
Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 4
2017 was a great year for Call Of Duty. It was the time of reflection, and a time to bask in its powerful multiplayer content.

It’s one of the top selling videogames during its time and just recently, it has been remastered for the PS4 and Xbox One and PC.
Year 2000 was a time when Unreal was just a game and not the powerful engine we know today. Epic Games’ godlike creation of this first person shooter is something that most gamers can never forget. It’s one of the first few games that shaped modern gaming. Unreal Tournament is the second main entry to their fast-paced shooting series. The quest to out-kill your opponents remain as the primary feature of the game’s thrill. Aside from this, there are over 6 modes to choose from: There’s Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture The Flag, Domination, Last Man Standing and Assault. These modes extends the game’s replayability. This, on top of the map’s verticality and sick weapons to choose from. It’s a success! It has spawned over multiple expansion packs, sequels and giving the birth of the Unreal Engine 4.
Funny how in 2016, we had Battlefield 1. In 2005, we had Battlefield 2. Fans of the series should know why. This third entry to the Battlefield franchise also rivals Call Of Duty in terms of first person shooter scale; especially the multiplayer. The story is the usual war between two superpowers. What redeems the bland story is the amazing, you guessed it, multiplayer. Gather your squad and dominate the battlefield with your coordinated attacks, communication and no scopes. Critics have applauded the game for its perfectly balanced matches. It did received a fair share of criticisms…not for the gameplay… but for the demanding hardware requirements during its time. Oh, how time flies, huh? Of course, no one could ever forget the classic Battlefield.
