Thanks in part to Juanolo for helping me to come up with the
background for this idea for this blog. Some
of these on the list will be more detailed than others because it has been a
minute since I have played said games.
The following blog will be a combined list made up of both
first & third person shooters. Some
games will have a favorite mission listed; others won't.
10. Tom Clancy' Ghost Recon Future Soldier
The game was good in that the plot was solid, the gameplay itself was
interesting. The weaponry was unique in
that it focused on the future of how the military uses its weaponry to fight
wars & gain the upper hand on the enemy.
The characters were
entertaining; kept things moving in the right direction. Sometimes, they could get annoying too.
9. COD Modern Warfare 2
This is the game that started my love affair with the shooter
genre. This was the game that had a lot
of controversy due to the No Russian mission.
Favorite mission: No Russian
8. COD Black Ops
This game was interesting in that they finally took us out of the WW2
era; put us into the Cold War. Way to go Infinity Ward. There is nothing like dealing with the
stealthy missions in this game. Every
game should have at least one like Black Ops had; I digress!
Favorite mission: Vorkuta
If you played the game, then I don't need to say anymore.
7. Medal of Honor
This was one of the games that came with my Playstation 3 when I
purchased it some time ago. I was
enthralled with the story from the time I pressed start to begin the game. This game to me was unique in that it was
based on a special ops group. It was
different from Call of Duty in that its not necessarily a run & gun
game. At certain points, you had to give
some thought into how you play the game or else you would have some really,
really long nights.
6. Killzone 3
This was one of the first games that I played that is a sci-fi
shooter. Its different from Halo to
me. I liked the controls. The gameplay was smooth; the storyline was
decent. For someone who isn't Big on
sci-fis I recommend this game to another gamer.
5. MOH: Warfighter
I had to get this sequel and see why it got a bad score according to
GI. I was disappointed by the score; it
should have been scored higher; I digress!
The gamepkay was reminiscent of the prequel. The controls were familiar. This game picked up where the last one left
out; it continued with a Middle Eastern theme in that the gameplay was tight
& fierce; in a good way. This game
was engaging; at times some levels were frustrating.
4. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2
This game was different from other shooters that I have played. This game was based strictly on sniping. The premise was good; the gameplay was
decent. The storyline needed something
more to help carry it out.
3. Battlefield Bad Company 2
What can I say about this game.
A friend recommended me this game, Juanolo. I am happy that he did. This game is reminiscent of the previous six
games that comprise this list. It has a
bit of each game in its own way; the best part is that it mirrors different
wars on each level. The gameplay is
tight & fast. The controls are
smooth; the storyline is one you have to see for yourself. The musical score suits the game better than
most that I have seen.
Disclaimer: These next two games
were hard to choose which should get the top spot. Each game has qualities that
make them worthy of top billing. What
makes one more deserving than the other, I don't know; I digress!2. Spec Ops: The Line
This was a game that I am still playing through periodically. The gameplay is fast & tight. If you don't go in with a plan you will get
killed before you know what happened.
The storyline is unique in that the setting is the desert and landscape/backdrop
Favorite mission: The Gate
1. Max Payne 3
What can I say about Max Payne 3?
This game was just all around addictive.
The multiplayer was fun. I put
plenty of hours into its multiplayer alone.
The single-player campaign was killer, pun intended! The storyline was unique in that you don't
see too many games based on a detective who has a drug & alcohol problem
combined. Max Payne had a trigger
finger; he knew how to use it & when to use it. His downfall was a penchant for
painkillers. Without it, he couldn't
