I am a big of FPS (first-person shooter) games. Delta Force 2 was the first ever FPS game that I played on a Pentium 3 PC. FPS games are known for fast-paced multiplayer action.

Far Cry 5
Release Date: March 27, 2018
Platform: PC, PS4, Xbox One
Far Cry 5 is the fifth installment in the famous Open-World game series bringing the Chaos to America. This time the game story revolves around a charismatic cult leader Josef Seed who has an apocalyptic religious community in the middle of Montana. He is preparing for a kind of Holy war against the rest of the world.
You play in the games as either a young policewoman or a young policeman. Your goal will be to recruit individual resistance members using the game’s new “for hire” system to start a new revolution. The game lets you modify the look of your character. You can pick out a hairstyle, change the dress etc.
Release Date: May 24, 2016
Platform : PC, PS4, Xbox One
Overwatch is a team-based multiplayer shooter that relies on classic virtues. Although there is an overall progression system, the heart of the game is the actual online matches, the focus is on the team balance. If you start with five friends, make up your mind and win together, then Overwatch is one of the best and most motivating team shooters of recent years.
The playful pull that the multiplayer battles trigger takes us, prisoners. The bottom line is that Overwatch “simply” creates a terrific feel for the game. The individual elements interlock with each other in such a harmonious way that you feel intensely at the center of the action. Sure, there is currently a lack of variety in the game modes. But that does not change the fact that Blizzard made a really good First-Person Shooter here. So good that there is now an own Overwatch league.
Developer: id Software / Certain Affinity
Release Date: May 13, 2016
Platform: PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch
If you are looking for fast and uncompromising single-player shooters, you will not miss the new Doom. It combines old serial virtues (forget Doom 3 in this context ) with current technology and delivers an amazing shooter experience.
The multiplayer mode developed by id Software and Certain Affinity in coproduction drops noticeably behind the solo experience but is still good as a bedtime ball. If you want to try the map-construction, you will find a good tool for getting started with the so-called SnapMap-Editor. With SnapMap, you can also build co-op levels, but a co-op mode is, unfortunately, missing in the main game.
Developer: Respawn Entertainment
Release Date: October 28, 2016
Platform: PC, PS 4, Xbox One
Titanfall 2 not only has a great multiplayer player mode but for the first time a complete single-player campaign. The single-player campaign has been surprisingly successful unless you have very high expectations. This is especially true for the actual story that was drawn from the drawer for “generic stories with even more generic protagonists”.
However, where the campaign fails in the story, it playfully does almost everything right and surprises us with varied environments that creatively include wall-runs and jump insets into level design.
The extensive multiplayer mode takes the crown on the whole. Great maps, varied pilot classes, and the well-known fast game mechanics provide sensational fun.
Release Date: Oct 24, 2017
Platform: PC, PS 4, Xbox One
Even with Destiny 2, you can drop the story a bit behind, especially if you did not play the predecessor on one of the consoles. What Destiny 2 masters on the PC is the so-called Gunplay, the feeling the game gives us when we shoot aliens with our futuristic weapons. The game can be played better with a mouse than a controller.
But actually, that’s just a good thing, because especially the endgame as a crisp co-op challenge that benefits from an even faster and more precise reaction. And the more you successfully complete the Nightfall missions and the Raids, the more chance you have of great Loot.
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus
Release Date: Oct 27, 2017
Platform: PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch
In the second part of BJ Adventure, we go to the US, which is firmly in the hands of the regime. Wolfenstein 2 does a lot like the first part, just a lot better. The story is more personal and rousing, the humor is even nastier and more fitting. And the action is even more action-packed thanks to the variety of opponents, the great locations, and the expansion system.
The side missions alone are not all that good, but there’s still room for improvement to make the third part the best in the series.
Rainbow Six: Siege
Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
Release Date: Dec 1, 2015
Platform: PC, PS4, Xbox One
Rainbow Six: Siege is a tactical shooter game where tactics are not just a marketing junk, but really a priority. In the exciting 5-on-5 battles there is no victory without collusion and teamwork, there is no room for loners.
Operators provide additional depth of play, and we have to decide between them before each match. Each specialist brings own gadgets and advantages that can be cleverly combined, here, too, teamwork is required. The characters are divided into offensive and defensive. Attackers can take down walls, for example, with a sledgehammer or disable enemy devices with EMP grenades. On the other hand, defensive fighter Kapkan mines doors with booby traps and block windows with bullet-proof shields.
There is the destructible environment, which also allows surprise attacks by blankets, dividing walls and floors via explosive charges and literally opens the floodgates to countless new strategies. A minimap is not there, by the way, in addition, even a few hits are deadly. We strongly recommend having a headset. Ubisoft has adopted an interesting update policy for Rainbow Six: Victories and will continue to support the game to include free maps and operators.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered
Developer: Infinity Ward / Raven Software
Release Date: November 4, 2016
Platforms: PC, PS4, XBox One
The PC version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is a technical feast and misses Call of Duty 4 the look that still deserves the best series part.
Whether it’s the pores in the faces of the soldiers, tiny scratches on helmets, or the wind that makes the uniforms in the mission “crew expendable” flutter: Developer Raven Software has gone to great lengths to make this game as cool looking as possible.
There are no modifications gameplaywise because that would have ruined the nostalgic factor and the gameplay of the original game was exceptional. The game is currently available on steam for just $22 which is a fair trade considering how ridiculous the pricing scheme was when the game was released.
Shadow Warrior 2
Developer: Flying Wild Hog
Release Date: October 13, 2016
70 weapons? Who needs 70 weapons in just one game? Well, people who love to play Shadow Warrior 2. You can tackle the colorful, entertaining, bloody and coarse action alone, but in Co-Op, the title unfolds its true strength. Together fighting crazy interdimensional demons in a crazy environment alone makes the game something special. Combine this with the collection of weapons and the fact that each run through random map layouts and enemy types plays a bit different, the bottom line is one of the best shooters of the year out.
If you can laugh at jokes like “Who wants some Wang?” and you prefer to face robots and demons killing them with crazy weapons such as chainsaws then Shadow Warrior is the right shooter for you.
Release Date: Oct 21, 2016
Platform: PC, PS4, One
Battlefield 1 does not do much different than its predecessors and yet it feels darn fresh. Dice has truly hit a nerve with the decision to say goodbye to modern war. In Battlefield 1, we fight the battles of the First World War, for weeks in historically correct places including trenches. Instead, there’s plenty of action.
The game tells the tales of the horrors of World War 1 in small stories organized in a non-linear anthology format. The tales do not need to be played in any particular order. You will also get to see the first generation tanks and fighter aircrafts.
The cream and butter of the game, however, lies in the multiplayer mode for which the Battlefield is known. The historic World War 1 weapons add a nice twist to the multiplayer battles. For me, it has been a real delight firing the old World War 1 weapons in a modern multiplayer game.
