We recommend the following best FPS games for anyone. Who wants to sit alone and blast monsters or other deserving bad guys. They may include multiplayer modes, but we chose these games and put them in this section because we think they offer the best singleplayer campaigns around.
Following are the best FPS games:
One of our highest-rated shooters of last year is Dusk. It is a riff on classic FPS games, with clear influences from Quake, Doom and Half-Life. If you worried first-person shooters had gotten too slow since the ’90s ended, this is probably the game for you.
You can set across three campaigns. You’ll play with a fun and often ludicrous armory—the Riveter, for example, which launches exploding rivets at your foes. It’s more than just a throwback, though, filled with memorable, varied levels and a genuinely good little horror-themed story.
Somehow Titanfall 2’s campaign ended up being the star of the show. Despite a host of high-value multiplayer options as well. The development of the games single-player was treated like a game jam. Where different members of the team would pitch their ideas for what a singleplayer Titanfall 2 idea level looks like.
The end result brings a really curious mix of thrilling platforming challenges, one-off level-changing tools, and even puzzle elements, alongside BT, a charming mech pal who’s like having a giant talking metal dog.
Bulletstorm is an incredibly well-made score attack shooter that’s a little different than everything else on the list. The energy leash, the ability to kick enemies and the fast player movement give you plenty of scopes to put together cool, flashy combos and to use your armory creatively.
The sweary, deliberately immature script, put together by comic book writer Rick Remender, matches the over-the-top action perfectly. It’s now available in an upgraded Full Clip Edition on Steam, complete with optional embarrassing Duke Nukem appendage, though the price tag of £30/$50 is eyebrow-raising for a six-year-old game, considering the old version would still be perfectly fine had the GfWL stuff been patched out of it.
No One Lives Forever
Where many classics play better in our memories than on our modern PCs, No One Lives Forever holds up brilliantly today thanks to the garish ‘60s art direction, a fine arsenal (from a petite .38 Airweight with dum-dum rounds to lipstick grenades and a briefcase missile launcher), as well as remarkably sophisticated AI.
Monolith wraps it all up in endlessly inventive level design and writing so consistently hilarious that it created its own genre—the comedy FPS—and hasn’t been outdone since. If only there was an easy way to download it on digital platforms today.
Metro Exodus trades the claustrophobic Moscow subway tunnels of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light for a mix of open and linear environments across an unexpectedly lush, living Russia.
It’s still the same shooter at its core, though, with horrific enemies, boisterous comrades, loud, crappy guns, and the best Eastern European post-apocalypse this side of Stalker. But what really makes it work is its heart.
The men and women you travel with are as rough and rugged as they come, but they have a genuine love for one another that transcends the rote camaraderie of most shooters, and one of the game’s most memorable moments isn’t an action sequence (although there are plenty of those) but a mournful, introspective wedding song about the loss of innocence during a time of war.
2033 and Last Light are smaller and much more linear than Exodus, but their portrayals of a slow, stoic struggle to survive in a genuinely awful wasteland are still well worth playing too.
Half-Life: Alyx’s level designer only played around five hours of the original Half-Life before dropping it for fan remake Black Mesa instead. And for good reason. What started as a mod homage to the original game blossomed (very slowly) over 15 years into a full-blown reinterpretation.
Built-in Source, Half-Life 2’s familiar physics make for more complex puzzles and explosive combat at a much larger scale. The early chapters of Black Mesa actually feel like the world-rending, panicked disaster the low-poly original was gunning for. It’s a goddamn nightmare, and that’s all before getting to Xen, a total reimagining of the Half-Life’s worst bits. Xen is practically its own game now.
Using the long jump module to fly around lush alien rainforests and through Vortigaunt labor camps is thrilling, tragic, and awe-inspiring. Xen feels truly alien and fully integrated with the greater Half-Life mythos. It’s as creative and surprising as anything Valve would make themselves. Black Mesa is canon.
BioShock’s greatest asset is its setting. Rapture provides from its ruined Eden are enemies that are hysterical, tragic figures. One encounter with a Splicer or a Big Daddy can arc from curiosity to sympathy, and then swing into full-on fear and violent panic.
One of the best things Irrational does is imbue its monsters with terrifying sound design. The psychotic speech of Splicers, the foghorn drone, and steel steps of the Big Daddies. The claustrophobia and anxiety Rapture throws at you gives you permission to fight recklessly, tooth-and-nail with powerful plasmids. You can upgraded shotguns as a way of getting revenge on the horrors that haunt you.
