Best shooter video game series.

I've compiled a list of various very popular shooter series, spanning across many platforms and garnering very large fan bases over the years.

Now its time to choose your ultimate shooter series, albeit because of its gripping story line, immersive gameplay, visceral graphics, theme, weapons, opponents, or any other reason you'd love a game! You can vote in the sidebar now.

If your game isn't here, then drop it in the comments and please still vote on your favourite from the list!

Half Life


Counter Strike



Battlefield


Call of duty



Quake


Unreal Tournament


F.E.A.R 


Metal Gear Solid


Resident Evil


Halo   


Let the voting begin!.. And probably a discussion-turned fanboy war.

  2. Damnit, something I probably should have included - in the very first comment!.. Thinking about it though I don't see TF2 as much of a series.. a fun multiplayer game yea, but, I don't really feel that it qualifies as a shooter series, and in a way I don't feel that it really belongs on the list.. I guess its half life for you then! ;]

  3. Totally agree pleth, this poll was inspired purely because this game was floating around in my head, I only got it a few days ago and I love it, but for me I had to go with Counter Strike being my all time favourite, would kind of feel wrong hopping the BF series up to my top spot because of this one awesome game. I loved the old ones too but from my personal experiences and the ammount of time I spent playing various different games, CS nicks the top spot for me =)

  4. Hard to say really; haven't played all of 'em, but I'd probably go with halo

    ReplyDelete
  5. Id say as far as pc gaming goes it has to be halflife for me..console though halo

    ReplyDelete
  6. =) i've been playing since the original, the poll seems to be bugging out for me at the moment, might just be me 0.o..

    ReplyDelete
  7. Hahha.. It seems to have disregarded my earlier CS vote xD

    ReplyDelete
  8. man, i miss playing bf2. i wish my computer could run it.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Yes I agree entirely!!
    Except never played F.E.A.R. but I heard many stories about that little girl...FREAKY!!
    supporting and following

  10. Much love hoss =D and comradejoker, it is a scary game, and the graphics were at the forefront when this game came out.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Scary storyline and events, generally startling and sort of jump out at you moments, plus being about 13/14 back then coupled with the best graphics of any game yet = pant shitting terror at moments, used to love the multiplayer, used to rape it up with friend from school =)

    ReplyDelete
  12. You have Quake, but not Doom? I am disappoint.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Have you ever played Wolfenstein? That's my favorite by far. But if I had to choose between these, I'd choose CoD

    ReplyDelete
  14. resident evil !! the best !!
    nice blog,supportin daily,please do aswell;)

  15. I'd have to say COD, but I don't have too deep of an interest in video games.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm still all about Counterstrike, might have to pop on the servers tonight before bed. :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm a big resident evil fan...but Half Life was always my favorite shooter :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Gordon Freeman is a flawless representation of what every nerd aspires to be: cunning, hyper-intelligent, and badass in a cold way. HL2 wins.

    ReplyDelete
  19. HALF LIFE 2. "Comes a man? It is! The Freeman!"

    ReplyDelete
  20. CS is and will forever be the best.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Half life is the best game ever

    ReplyDelete
  22. Counter-strike. I have played it the past 8 years.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Agree with everything but resident evil

    ReplyDelete
  24. This is a very hackneyed list that includes first person shooters and third person shooters. Differentiation between the two would have been better IMO. I'll vote anyway ;P

    ReplyDelete
  25. I would vote, but I hate shooters in general, have fun with the fan boy brawls though :P

    ReplyDelete
  26. I guess it's all whatever makes you happy. I like Battlefield myself, but mostly because I've played it more than the others. Supporting!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Grew up with CS, love the Halo now

    ReplyDelete
  28. Best game of all time? halflife.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I had a lot of fun with Halo, but I have to give it to Call of Duty for perfecting the multiplayer experience.

    ReplyDelete
  30. call of duty not on here? travestyy

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm actually very surprised Halo hasn't been relentlessly hated on by COD fanboys in here yet.. Halo.. particularly Reach has my vote. It fixed a lot of the issues with 3, and it's very fluid in it's gameplay. So yeah, that's my vote.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Good choices! but..where is Gears of war? xD

    ReplyDelete
  33. Personally I'd go with Halo or MGS.

    ReplyDelete
  34. CS!!! It has such a strong following even today!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Im one of the few people that HATE half life. I think that shit sucks! lol. I would have to go with counterstrike...mainly because its like, the original online shooter. Also halo, it paved the way for online console gaming.

    ReplyDelete
  36. ALL OF THEM!!

    Seriously, though, the games that gripped me most
    are the Half Life series, portal, STALKER, Braid, and mirror's edge.

    too bad that only half life is here!
    A special mention to F.E.A.R. too, it is amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  37. i hate to be cliche but COD is very realistic for shooting, but i'm throwing golden eye into the ring, lol that'd be ridiculous

    ReplyDelete
  38. gonna go with cod on this one, more replay value

    ReplyDelete
  39. I really cant choose between Halo, Battlefield and Resident Evil, they each have their lovable differences that makes it hard to pick a winner!

    ReplyDelete
  40. F.E.A.R. is the most horrifying game I've ever played...

    ReplyDelete
  41. Great post,

    Quake I, Quake II, Quake III are all great so my vote goes to quake.

    All the other games are great as well, my second choice would have been counter-strike source.

    ReplyDelete
  42. nice bloggy boy, i like how you got things heregoin. when you gonna comm me back

    ReplyDelete
  43. i despise shooting games with a passion

    ReplyDelete
  44. I likr css the most :) dunno why realy but it is one of the most played games on my list :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Gotta go with Half-Life on this

    ReplyDelete
  46. dude nice shit keep it up

    riotallday.blogspot.com

    ReplyDelete
  47. ive played half life and halo the most so one of them

    ReplyDelete
  48. Im going to have to go with either Half Life, Counter Strike or Halo. I mean, admit it. Halo set a very large presidency for xbox FPS, so did MGS, but really alot of companies had to step it up for Halo, if they didnt meet with criteria of a gamer the game would fall to pieces. Counter strike is classical, I fucking love it, its my childhood.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I don't know if I would consider all of those shooters. However, I think the best pure shooter would be Half-Life

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'll sound like a scrub for saying it...but COD.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Battlefield series are awesome..
    Quake III rocks also..

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'm more inclined to Metal Gear just because I've played every version available.

    ReplyDelete
  53. As much as I'll regret this, I have to say Call of Duty.

    ReplyDelete
  54. You can divide this genre into more specific genres I guess. Tough one.

    For competitive online play, Call of Duty (the old ones).

    For a compelling story, a tie between MGS and HL.

    ReplyDelete
  55. It's a hard one, but I'm going to have to go with Half-Life (including all its mods). Call of Duty has just been getting worse in recent years.

    ReplyDelete
  56. (Insurgency!) so it's gotta be HL²

    ReplyDelete
  57. I switch my vote to resdent evil

    ReplyDelete
  58. doom and wolfenstein belonged there, sorry =p

    ReplyDelete
  59. Damn too many good choices! COD is the reigning champ right now, but half life, halo, CS etc all are awesome games as well.

    ReplyDelete
  60. yes the best are there and will remain there in our souls forever

    ReplyDelete
  61. Counter-Strike for sure. Team fortress is also a pretty fun game :P

    ReplyDelete
  62. Half-life has AMAZING single player gameplay, very lacking in multiplayer content however. Can't wait for episode 3. CS will always be the best multiplayer shooter though

    ReplyDelete
  63. However I grow up on CoDs and MGS, I need to vote CS for it's popularity. :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. MGS is more stealth so....good list though.

    ReplyDelete
  65. MGS isn't a shooter...

    I'd probably say Battlefield.

    ReplyDelete
  66. very nice blog
    i like your post!
    supportin & follow you ;)

    ReplyDelete
  67. I'm gonna have to go with Counterstrike. It practically started the entire online FPS series, which led to many titles such as CoD and Halo.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I'll vote CS:S here only because of the surfing.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I have to say CoD just because of how many games they've churned out..

    ReplyDelete
  70. bets shooter ever doom. lol nowadays modernwarfare 2

    ReplyDelete
  71. Not really sure if MGS counts, but I approve of Quake. Good shit.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Resident Evil, without a doubt.

    Best story, best fear, and most realistic (despite zombie) setting.

    ReplyDelete
  73. There's a serious lack of Wolfenstein here. RtCW was fucking brilliant and spawned one of the very best free FPSes ever in Enemy Territory.

    ReplyDelete
  74. You're missing a couple but great list! following you!

    ReplyDelete
  75. nice shit great games brooothaaa

    ReplyDelete
  76. hell year. i love all these gamez

    pigdisgusting.blogspot.com

    ReplyDelete
  77. resident evil, killing zombies is awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I'd say it's a toss up between Half-Life and Counter-Strike for me.

    ..I'd probably end up choosing Counter-Strike.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I just played the fear 2 demo... scared the bejebus out of me!

    ReplyDelete
  80. also, metal gear solid is dope

    ReplyDelete
  81. That's a tough call, but I have to go with Resident Evil!

    ReplyDelete
  82. solid list, i play counter strike myself

    ReplyDelete
  83. gotta go MGS for story, CS for replayability, and Call of Duty for overall fun I would say

    ReplyDelete
  84. To be completely honest, I've never really played any of these games, CoD included. I need to start playing more games or something...

    ReplyDelete
  85. Ha, you basically got them all... maybe to a separate list of best PC and Console shooters.

    ReplyDelete
  86. im probably gonna have to say counter strike

    ReplyDelete
  87. there are some really good ones there but i had to go with battlefield in the end

    ReplyDelete
  88. I don't know why you even put MGS4 and RE4 in that list. lol

    I'd say Counter-Strike.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I have to say i personally like the older Call of Dutys (cod2 more specifily)

    ReplyDelete
  90. Resident Evil, the best game ever!

    ReplyDelete
  91. THE CORRECT ANSWER IS HALO, THAT IS ALL

    ReplyDelete
  92. Nothing will ever beat Quake. To me, Quake is the standard I rate other shooters by.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I was a huge fan of BF2142 on the PC, but to me the COD will always be superior

    ReplyDelete
  94. DOOM.. the very first 1.. those were the years...

    ReplyDelete
  95. Half life, hands down! Just wish they'd come out with episode three already...

    ReplyDelete
  96. I'm appalled TF2 isn't on your list, but it's forgiven by the fact you listed Halo last. Love the FPS genre, and with that, Half-life definitely wins.

    ReplyDelete
  97. quake and unreal hands down.

    HANDS DOWNNNNNNNNNNNNN

    ReplyDelete
  98. u forgot stalker series :)
    but my vote goes to halo as 1 and half life as 2

    ReplyDelete
  99. Quake for Sure! I, II, and IIIA

    ReplyDelete
  100. Quake. Anything other is scrub tier.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Loving the blog! im all about resident evil and the original MGS

    ReplyDelete
  102. No fanboy here but I love Halo Reach but all of these are such great games. Hard to just pick one.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Battlefield variants with jets in them. Those were spectacular.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Yo guyz, Imma let you finish but Unreal Tournament 2k4 was the best fps of all time, ALL TIME!
