Best Third Person Shooters

The Top Ten

1 Resident Evil 4

Not only third person Shooter but the best game ever created..

I played it for a long time and it never gets boring. It doesn't matter if it has bad graphics, the game is awesome.

This is my favorite game on a sony console aside form Final Fantasy VII. No other violent video game is as good... except Assassin's Creed and Bioshock maybe. - HeavyDonkeyKong

You play once again as Leon Keneady

2 Red Dead Redemption

You will never get bored of this game because there is so many things to do and so many places to explore. Even better than Grand Theft Auto IV and that means a lot!

When you shoot enemy's they have realistic physical responses to the gun blasts

Not rockstar's best game, the worlds best game.

3 Mass Effect 2

My favorite game of all time.

Because it MASS EFFECT 2... as simple as that

This is also Bioware's best game today.

4 Gears of War

Its gears it needs to be number one it had beautiful graphics for the time and gave a new cover system.

Why the hell is this not at number 1?

One of the first great multiplayer games

There are many great games on this list and I think Mass Effect 2 is one of the greatest games of all time, but it's a RPG. Star Wars Battlefront 2 was my First Shooter so it is a part of my childhood, but not the best 3rd Person Shooter.
Gears of War is a awesome game and it is an Evolution for that Genre. Nothing more to say.

5 Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

I wouldn't classify Mass Effect 2 as a third person shooter. It is a fantastic game though, this game is everything an action adventure title should be; and it happens to be a third person shooter. Tight gameplay mechanics and awesome set pieces make this one stand out.

This game is just amazing. Great quality, great action scenes, great story. It should really be first

Great game, amazing graphics and story

6 Dead Space

The atmosphere in this game is truly a class above any other yet to come. Tight controls, great story and characters, and upgrading your weapons gives you a real sense of having a fighting chance at surviving.

What can be said its beautiful and at times expresses true horror.

7 Grand Theft Auto V V 2 Comments
8 Star Wars Battlefront II

Yeah because Dead Space, Gears, Uncharted, Mass Effect, Red Dead Redemption, Resident Evil and a ton of others don't have a story.

Actually has a story line unlike just about every other shooter out there. Still trying to find disk for my old copy.

9 Fallout 3

It's fun, it's creative, and it is explosive!

This had better be on number one soon...

10 The Last of Us

Gameplay is amazing and punching feels like a real brawl, It's so satisfying!

Best Third person ever. Best Story, gameplay and multiplayer

Its rare to have a combination of good story and great tps gameplay

The Contenders

11 Grand Theft Auto IV

Grand Theft Auto IV is the best first person game cause there is no limit in what you can do. If you ever defeat the story mode (which would take a while), you can always cause destruction, hang out with friends, date, go bowling, pool etc. and go on tours around the city.

The graphics are amazing and the setting looks so realistic that is probably one of the biggest games in history.

12 Max Payne

It's obviously the best third person shooter game ever made, without doubt. It's a masterpiece. It's a revolution for it's time. Story, gameplay, characters... all of them are amazing. The Last of Us, Grand Theft Auto, Mafia... All of them are nothing compared to this game.

Out of most of the games on this list this is one of the most core shooters out there and when it comes to running and gunning most of the games ranked higher than this don't even hold up as well or create the sense of challenge and intensity that this game has

One of the best games of the 2000s. Better than most shooters these days that are solely based on Multiplayer and co-op. Has the best story, best character development and one of the best settings ever. Period.

13 Mafia

Resident Evil has nothing on this 3rd person shooter about the Mafia. Who needs Chris Redfield when you can have Vito Scaletta and Joe Barbaro.

14 Socom U.S. Navy SEALS

Massive experience. Started online gaming on PS2, legendary game.

15 Gears of War 3

Best ending of all time!

16 Max Payne 3

Really excels at the core gameplay of Max Payne and when it comes to core shooters I don't think even a lot of the games ahead of present the same challenge, intensity, and just ultimate feeling of being a badass as this game does, gameplay is best here

I really appreciate everything about this game his predecessors were the one of the best and they didn't lost their flow

Amazing game. The airport shootout at the end was one of the most powerful moments I've ever experienced in gaming

One of the greatest!
