41 Quake

Legendary FPS FOR ALL TIMES! Why? Everything starts with it...

1. First FPS with "real 3d engine"... Games like blake stone, wolfenstein 3d, doom 1+2, rott etc are the first 3d shooter, but with 2d sprites enemies, build engine games (duke 3d, sw, blood, rr) take this to a new level, but quake was the first with "real 3d" enemies & levels...

2. First game with epic controls (movement) & physics to do crazy stuff like rocket jumps, bunny hopping etc...

3. First game with "dedicated server" technology and online (internet) gaming... Again everything start with quake.

4. First game with "console" and own programming speech (quake c) to modified the game (yeah sure, also build engine have mods, but for example look for a "quake race game mod" and a "duke race game mod"... See the difference? )

5. EPIC game & level design (multi & single) that was "easy & simple" to learn (press the ...more

This Game needs to be in the top 5 asap. A ID Software Classic Masterpiece. - PrincelyVirtu

Quake is the Best FPS out there, far better than half life2. I did tried to play half life and made me puke because of the environment and the control is not that great.

Everything actually started with DOOM, not quake. - MRRM

42 Counter Strike Global Offensive

How isn't this higher? Call of Duty is for 12-year olds. Counter Strike is for grown ass men.

New Graphics and still uses the source engine!
and it is still under beta closed beta that's why you have to get a beta key

Easy to run, never gets old. The developer doesn't launch a new CS game every half a year. 10/10

Brilliant graphics and brilliant game when I start this one I thinked css was really bad best online game I ever saw so good so brilliant and if you are a little good at thisgame you'll never stop playing
Not: I played 1.232 hours 32 minutes meanwhile I'm playing... !

43 The Darkness
44 Geograph Seal
45 Battlefield 1942

I can't believe this is so low on this list. The Battlefield series is the best thing out there. I could not believe when I had to scroll all the way down here to find this game. No doubt in my mind this is the Greatest FPS ever.

This can't be so low on the list, it's a very old game, but it was super fun. It also has an incredible element of strategy on it that modern fps lack off.

The first multiplayer war game that could use airplanes tanks turrets.

This was one of the best games ever.

46 Fallout 3

I mean serious. This is the 2nd best game of all time after Skyrim. A lot of awesome weapons, and you could do anything you want. I mean for real this should be at least at the top ten.

This is truly a wonderful game. I got it the day it came out and I still love it. Fallout isn't a full on shooter, but it's easily one of the best damn games ever.

47 Call of Duty

This is where it all started for this productive series. Back in the days it was still good and fun to play.

48 Wolfenstein 3D

Wolfenstein 3D broke the entire ground that FPS stands on... And it wasn't just a ground-breaker in that mind-set. It featured bosses that were extremely evil and sadistic, from the maniacal and diabolical Doctor Schabbs, who experimented on humans and created deadly mutated fighting machines out of them... To the menacingly demonic Hitler, who wore a battle suit and fought with brutal precision with dual chainguns and rapid fire. The game was not just a breakthrough for FPS games, a definitive game for bosses, a controversial title for the Nazi enemies, and adding a tremendous amount of levels and secrets, it was also the most powerful title that fed into the mainstream for decades to follow. Wolfenstein 3D is the legend of all FPS games, hands down.

What A Great Game And It Was Made By The People That Did DOOM And Quake

WHY IS THIS SO LOW!? Wolfenstein 3D is one of the first ever FPS games. It practically created the genre! - Jefftt

Though it look cheap by todays standers, think about when this came out? A great innovation to gaming history. - AlienKing

49 Enemy Zero
50 Far Cry 4

If you love Far cry 3 the you will like this even more, this is stable version of far cry 3 it has more guns and a lot of added fetures

51 Time Splitters: Future Perfect

What other game can let you play as a Robocop Monkey armed with a flamethrower and can set the Gingerbread man on fire while also being under attack from a Giant Sock Puppet?

Game is very unique, fun and entertaining in so many ways.

52 Black

Black is the best game ever. She have got explosions and blowing things up. You can shoot peoples in their heads and a lot of awesome guns like ak-47

Such a great FPS, with exciting scenes and scenarios, extreme difficulty and non-stop action. The first FPS I ever fought hard to complete, and was worth it.

53 Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield

Call of Duty is in top 10? I have lost faith in humanity.

54 Gungriffon Blaze
55 Halo 4

Awesome graphics, the best playability in fps, great multiplayer, simple, fun, perfect

What this game is one of the best, why so low down?

Should be higher, ignore the campaign... it's one of the best! - MaxAttack333

57 Borderlands

Filled with over the top violence, Hilarious dialogue, and an amazing plot, make borderlands one of the most amazing fps series of all time!

58 Quake III: Arena

Clearly the best fps of all time.

No modern fps has the kind of skill cap Q3 had.

Easily the best dueling, though preferably some pro mode mod.

All modern fps games should take a leaf out of the Q3 book and incorporate physics that allow for vast skill in movement as well as strategy and aim... Then again that's a bit much to ask for when the market at the moment is "realistic" consoles shooters with input devices incapable of aiming well let alone anything else.

Quake 3 is the oldest game of all this list.
But when it was out, it was a revolution in FPS world, just like all other ID games.
Graphics and gameplay at a level never reached before.
A playability without limits : with this game, a new activity was born : cyber athlete.
Even today, it's still a reference.

What a shame, this is the last, this should be tbe first in this list, ridiculous.

Quake series is the best FPS game all time.

This is definitely the best FPS games ever made. this is the first fps game I played and I learnt my fps skill playing this game. Now any fps game becomes a cake walk after playing this game.

59 SWAT 4 Gold

The best tactical shooter up until 2016, wish Sierra (or anybody in the world) would come up with another similar game. Though the AI was frustrating at times, the non-lethal system and the tactics were impressive and still place SWAT 4 as the best shooter in its genre.

SWAT 4 has an amazingly well-developed tactical command system, as well as a good, solid selection of weapons and gadgets.
