First Person Shooter games may feature various elements such as a heavy-hearted story, an expansive world and so on. But one thing they have in common is the sheer joy of shooting a gun and killing your nemesis. They have been around since the dawn of modern gaming and are quite fun to play. Such games also promote a healthy spirit of sportsmanship as most of the First Person Shooter games are multiplayer. Many huge e-sports contests revolve around them.

Halo Reach


Halo is hands down one of the best First Person Shooter series ever.

Bonus: Fortnite


Fortnite is not exactly a First Person Shooter, but it is a shooter. Owing to its huge popularity, it deserves a spot on this list. It features quirky-cartoony graphics and popularised the Battle Royale concept after PUBG. There are a hundred players at the beginning of the game, each player scavenges the map for gear and weapons. The map is slowly restricted to a certain area. The last man standing is the winner. You can also build walls, building, and other structures to defend yourself. It is available on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and iOS. It will soon release on Android too. Read our quick review here.
