Which is the best. For me its GoldenEye on the Nintendo 64...

ESB -1138
Metroid Prime - Gamecube

And if for some reason I can't use that Golden Eye 007.

Morridini
Possibly a similar thread somewhere. Might even have to be in the Versus thread...

But IMO, it's GoldenEye that definitley win this one *cough*PetitioninsigtogetGoldenEyetoXBLA*cough*

Jedireaper
Good luck... I'm a N64/PS2/PS3 fan... any chance of it coming to Sony's Home Arcade... lol, GoldenEye definately my alltime fav'

BackFire
Either Goldeneye or Half Life.

Call of Duty 4 and Metroid Prime tie for me.

Jedireaper
I should have put Metroid Prime up there, but remember it used to be sidescrolling.

Neo Darkhalen
Timesplitters/COD4/Half Life those are ties for me.

Can a mod put Metroid in instead of Black, and allow multiple voting.

Half life, but not on those platforms, PC for me

PM a Global like WrathfulDwarf, BackFire, or Ushgarak and they will alter the poll for you.

jaden101
out of those i would have to go with perfect dark...i just thought it took golden eye to a whole new level of fun and had some of the best weapons and gadgets i've seen in a game to this day

CoD4 was close to clinching it as well for the sheer amount of time i've played it

Dark-Jaxx
No Unreal Tournament? no expression

ragesRemorse
From that list...,Half Life 2, easily. I would have said COD4, but the respawning enemies took that game down from a 9.5 to an 8 in my book. I think it will be a long time before a there is an fps that topples Half life. Bioshock came close though.


Why do people feel compelled to always mention Goldeneye? Yeah, the game was incredible and very innovative for it's time, but the game doesn't even compare to current FPS games.

NonSensi-Klown
I voted halo 3 just to be an *******.

I replaced Black with Metroid Prime, but it's not possible to change it to multiple voting.

Anyway, I say Goldeneye and COD4.

Black was my secondary choice. no expression

ESB -1138
Alright, Metroid Prime is up there of course I like Corruption the best because of the controls and everything but the first one started it all.

NonSensi-Klown
I personally find that Metroid, as far as actual first person shooters are concerned, is pretty weak. The general tactic in Metroid when in combat is to hold down on the auto-lock button, then strafe back and fourth and to the side, rapidly clicking on your infinite ammo wielding firing button until your enemy dies.

Metroid is still like, one of the best games ever though.

xNIXSONx
can Metroid be put on the list? i thought there was like a thing where you couldnt look up and down at the same time as left and right...or is that just the gamecube version

You can do that with 3 for the Wii but the Gamecube controller wasn't really made to fit for a FPS so Retro Studios had to work around it and that's why it has the controls it did; to make it fit for the Gamecube.

Dark-Jaxx
Metroid Prime 1-3 were great games, but I agree with Blax, as far as being an actual FPS is concerned, it wasn't that great.

Oh, and just to piss off the COD fanboys, COD4 is BORING. no expression

lol im just wondering what made it boring for that person, like the only thing id say about COD is it is very generic, and probably could fit in right with the other modern warfare shooters out there

Dark-Jaxx
Well the gameplay in general is boring, I have played it on multiplayer and online, and it just is not as fun for me as say Halo or Unreal Tournament 3.

Impediment
COD4 is a fantastic FPS either way you slice it. The story mode, albeit very short, is nothing less than amazing. The multiplayer mode keeps on giving and giving. It's a win-win situation.

Metroid Prime, while it is, technically, a FPS, is sci-fi in nature, so I don't see a problem with it's mechaincs/infinte firepower.

BackFire
COD4 is quite excellent, but it does have some very severe problems, primarily in single player.

The way the enemies just simply respawn infinitely until you move past a certain spot really bothers me. As one reviewer said, the game can start to feel like a shooting gallery. Also the AI is a bit dumb. And, as with all COD games, the grenades are exceptionally annoying.

Great game though, think I'll play through it again.

Jedireaper
COD4 is good, but GoldenEye for its time, was a technical achievement. It still stands as not only the greatest Bond game, but as one of the most well designed games yet made. COD4 is flashy graphics, a middle eastern setting, some slick if predefined AI and animations, and everything you would expect from Next Gen. Granted the games don't compare but no game has ever reached the popularity of that Bond game, except the cult it TimeSplitters, which shares many features with the N64 game. It also has some of the best hit sensitive character models and a heck of a lot of cool wals that the characters die. C'mon, shooting guards in the ass and watching them hop up and down in pain is funny, and even the crotch shot drawn laughs as they roll on the ground in pain. The Modern FPS would be nothing with-out GoldenEye, and before that though not true 3D, Doom, and later Duke Nukem 3D which was pretty smooth.

Regarding Black.. Its failing was the lack of multi-player.

I personally love Area 51, the first time I played it I was amazed. Its a very good game that in many ways in similer to Halo.

I vote 007.


I know its outdated and technically cant compare anymore, but if the true measure of a game is "fun", I have never had as much fun with an FPS then playing with 3 friends in 007. Playing the original Halo with friends is pretty close though.

Dark-Jaxx
I personally think a real good FPS was Turok: Seeds of Evil.

I really liked the premise of the game and the setting, and the multiplayer was really fun.

And not to mention the weapons, oh God those were some badass weapons. The Cerebral Bore anyone?

xNIXSONx
also isn't Metroid technically a FPA, first person adventure??

Jedireaper
I love you @ST.. Go Bond, beat Cod-fish 4, lol the multi is pretty sweet in COD4 but GoldenEye, as ST mentions, was pure fragging fun. A miss spent youth playing it. Besides, I play N64 still more than PS2/3 lol.

Jedireaper
I omitted Turok to include more modern shooters but I never really liked Turok, it was a glitchy little ***** and made use of the Star Wars Shadows of the Empire game engine or something. Actually, just on a good N64 game, Rogue Squadron was excellent.

Thats why(well one of many reasons) I hated the new Turok, it was such a ****ing generic piece of crap, none of the crazy cool weapons of the old games.

Jedireaper
I watched my cousin run outta weapons on caves fighting my other cousin, and all he had was prox mines, so he placed them on every tunnel leading the area he was in and waited his enemy to find him. After passing the traps, he ran and acidentally killed himself by one of his mines. Bunker was my fav map, followed by Complex, Caves, then Facility, which is one of the most perfect maps in multi history.

I won't say I hated the new Turok, I actually loved the knife kills, but that was a letdown. One of the reasons I loved the first too was the awesome and diverse weapons like the Nuke, Cerebral Bore, or Scorpion Launcher.

Although the new Turok was substantially better than Evolutions IMO.

Instead of a right analog stick the N64 had four yellow buttons that did the same thing as the right analog sticks do today.

Jedireaper
Actually the controls are pick up and play, they become secod nature, strfing around corners, looking up and down, reloading, moving, changing weapons and aiming are all in easy reach. Go round your local Cash Converters for one, lol.

I don't know, i just felt that fighting the same types of enemies got a little boring after a while, save one mission it was not that difficult...the AI is poor...the campaign was short..the final boss was weak and there are a few bugs here and there...and those Gravemind/Cortana intermissions served as nothing but annoyances.

I really dont think that Metroid Prime should be on the list since its not really a FPS, its more of a First Person Adventure game. It has more in common with Zelda then the traditional FPS. However, Prime is one of the most amazing games ever. But since I dont consider it a FPS at all I wont include it. The CURRENT best FPS ever I would say is Half Life 2 and Call of Duty 4. As for defining what the best FPS is for its time I'd say its Goldeneye for me. It was amazing for its time, it was the first real good FPS on a console and was such a huge success, everyone that I know knows Goldeneye 007 for the N64.

Impediment
How can you say that MP isn't a FPS? It clearly has all the makings of a FPS, even with it's sci-fi mechanics and abilities.

Jedireaper
It is a platformer game at heart. The most FPS Metroid available was Hunters on the DS, its its amazing. GoldenEye still does it for me, I still play, and I've dscovered so many things about it such as glitches that make the game better. In fact it is one of the few games where the glitches were fun and interesting and not annoying, makig the game much better, but why has no-one even mentioned another classic, Medal of Honor?

What about James Bond, a little golden gun action never hurts.

Because it isnt a FPS, even Nintendo does not consider it a FPS. In Nintendo's own words, It is a First Person ADVENTURE (or platformer if you prefer). You do more exploring and platforming in Metroid Prime then you do shooting, and the shooting is really secondary to the actual adventuring in the game. Just because the game is in a first person perspective and that you shoot in it does not mean it is a FPS. It shares only few similarities with traditional FPS games. It has more in common with Zelda then it does with Halo for example.

Great game though, think I'll play through it again.

I also think its a great game. One of the better experiences last year but as you said, it has alot problems.

The other problem is that the whole game is scripted completely. There isnt any sort of AI to speak of, the same battle plays out the same and COD4 is almost identical in gameplay as the previous Call of Duty's. The difference is that its a modern setting, and not a historic setting. Even MP, though very fun is roughly the same as before outside of the perk system.

It's still a very fun game but not even close to perfection, or being the best out there. If I have to C4 another flak gun, I'm done with the series.

I just finished Crysis for the second time, and that play through was radically different than the first. COD4 doesnt have that.

I would pick Half Life if it was up there, but Half Life 2 is a good alternative.

Really? I thought Nintendo called it a First Person Adventure was because everyone thought Metroid Prime would just be a Halo clone and they wanted to try to avoid that comparison.

If you look at the list, its strictly console outside of HL2, and the few ports they have on consoles from PC games.

TimeSplitters: Future Perfect

And as for "PCs ideal for playing FPS" it depends because if you talk to console gamers that they'll obvisouly say Console is better.

Smasandian
I am both and the mouse/keyboard is a much superior control scheme. Every game that has plays well while with consoles, only a few games play well.

COD4 is a good example of this. BF Bad Company is the opposite example.

Also, PC FPS tend to be better experiences due to the fact of the hardware and superior graphics.

I like console shooters, but in the end, the PC just does them better.

Saying MP is not an FPS is total nonsense; the 'Adventure' trappings are a myth. Just about everything in the game is done by shooting it. Even the scanner works on an effective shooting basis. The majority of stuff in MP is a shooting event, just with long walks between each boss.

DEFINITELY an FPS, those who say otherwise have lost perspective.

Fine, it was a really good Adventure game, not an FPS. Happy? no expression

So why not a first person shooter?

You shoot bad guys, and move in the first person view. The only reason is because you lock onto your targets and not free aim like every other FPS game.

NonSensi-Klown
So it's a FPS that sucks as far as FPS's go.

Is everyone happy?

Because I disagree completely. Its an extremely well made game. Controls are excellent, level design is top notch. Graphics were amazing and overall, a well developed game.

NonSensi-Klown
I agree completely.

Except I think he FPS elements sucked, compared to pure shooters. I don't count it against the game though because it's focus was not on the shooting gameplay.

The only thing good about Halo 3 is the multiplayer. Reasons the story mode sucks is because it didn't feel as exciting as Halo 1 & 2, and the AI is more like an AR (ArtificialRetardation). The multiplayer is great.

The best one ever is HALO! Do you like HALO? Let's go play HALO. I love HALO. Do you know the story of HALO? Well, it takes place on HALO...

Needless to say, I think it gets more hype than it's worth. Of this list, I'd have to say that Goldeneye was the best, in relation to its time, of course. I mean, you get to ride a freaking tank!

Call of Duty 4 kinda sucked for me. "Halo 3 should take lessons from CoD4" my ass. Halo 3 would be worse if they took lessons from those guys. Halo 3 should be taught by Gears of War, now that would be an awesome Halo game. smile

DigiMark007
Goldeneye only for its era. Blasphemous as it is to say this, it doesn't hold up to the test of time at all. Graphics are yuck, even for N64, and the gameplay is only passable as multiplayer anymore, and then only for a little while before the nostalgia glow wears off.

For single player experience, I'd say HL2 (and episodes). Most multiplayer-oriented shooters these days are trash imo, so I can't name a best for that group.

I think Goldeneye is great, but its not a perfect FPS.

Bah, you can do that in Time Splitters socially speaking. Actually I think TS is better than Halo, who carwes about flashy graphics.

Kazenji
Huh ?!?

Hitler was in Timesplitters since when?

Jedireaper
Since he was hidden in them lol it was a joke...

best shooting games would be:
1. COD 4: Graphically it is amazing, Online is phenomenal and it just rocks being SAS gunsmilie
2. Bioshock: amazing game with spectacular graphics
3. Prey: again graphics are great perhaps not as good as others but still great. The game play is sweet but the ending excited me and annoyed me all at the same time messed
4. Counter Strike: this game is awesome no more needs said gunsmilie
5. Halo: The greatest halo ever made big grin

So like, I'm playing through CoD 4.

And, like, does the enemy respawn... forever?

If so, which seems like it is because I've stormed a room only to be killed by a guy who I had already killed a minute earlier for the umpteenth time, I don't see how this is "better than H3 and GoW combined!"

Dark-Jaxx
That's cause it's not.

It gets quite boring at times in fact.

NonSensi-Klown
The Campaign is incredibly boring, yeah. I've already quit playing that altogether.

Multiplayer's pretty fun though. Reminds me of Saving Private Ryan...

Dark-Jaxx
Meh.

The Multiplayer is alright.

NonSensi-Klown
Woah!

I... I...

I C4'd an AA gun. no expression

'kay, F*CK single player.

Why can't campaigns be good these days? Darn it, there are other things gamers enjoy besides the multiplayer.

Anyone that wants to protest against the game companies that made sucky campaigns say "I"

occultdestroyer
The best would be

Counter-Strike Source!

I remember it used to so HUGE back in 2001-2004!
I mean damn HUGE!!
Had a huge cult following too.

the single player game is short...mildly entertaining...but generally not the point in getting the game

NonSensi-Klown
I noticed. The Multiplayer is ace.
