Best First Person Shooter (FPS) Franchises


The Top TenXW


Call of Duty has one of the best campaigns beating a lot of games in terms of story, such as Battlefield and the lot. BUT HALO is even better in terms of every story telling technique and plot. It's like comparing a grenade (Call of Duty) to a thermonuclear bomb (HALO) in terms of explosions. Its an insult to even compare Call of Duty to the likes of HALO as it is an insult to a thermonuclear bomb to compare it to a grenade.

Halo 3 tops all else. Anybody who says otherwise has either never played it or has no taste (probably because they're too young and immature to tell the difference).

Halo is the best game series and it was once the most popular shooter series. It is even better than Call of Duty and battle field to me.

Best in campaign and multiplayer

Call of Duty should beat Battlefield easily, because Battlefield is only for quality and multiplayer, but Call of Duty also great in those aspects, and the single player campaigns make this game completely ruins Battlefield, as the sp campaign of Battlefield is really bad (not for Bad Company 2)

"Call of Duty is a great game franchise, and I hope it stays at the top of its game."

The greatest FPS franchise in the gaming world. The Battlefield series is no match for this amazing fps franchise, at least not in single-player.

1 thing love it!

I just started playing Battlefield and I already enjoy it because it is actually different from most fps games with controllable vehicles and it requires actual skill, but you don't have to tryhard to have fun on the game."

Call of Duty prides itself on infantry warfare yet battlefield does infantry better (more skilled, more recoil more headshot multipler, there is even a negative multiplier for stomach and below) with so much more versatility. CSGO gets boring yet in battlefield there is always a new thing to try and master.

Battlefield=best gaming franchise in the world

Pretty good series! - MaxAttack333

Hard to learn, absolutely impossible to master. This game requires so much skill to play, and there also is an extremely competitive rank system.

Killzone has the potential to be the best with good graphics since killzone 2 was released it was ahead of its time in both single player and multiplayer and continued it formula with 3 and 4... Too bad its one of the most underrated fps

You need to play this If you haven't. Yes it's 2015 but so what. Make your self a favour. You know nothing If you don't.

17Combat Arms
18Metroid Prime

OK, so Metroid doesn't have as much popularity as other Nintendo franchises like Mario, Zelda, and Pokemon, but it still holds up incredibly well.


Critically acclaimed masterpiece...followed by Half Life and Bioshock...
