Top Ten Most Realistic First Person Shooters


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Battlefield 1

None of the other games are CLOSE to battlefield 1.

Definitely realistic. Just not the realest

22 Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising

All Operation Flashpoint franchise is based on almost-realistic combat. There is little HUD, damage dealt is insane, there's no radar, no objective tags, no run and gun, magazine bullets are lost when prematurely reloaded, etc. etc.

It's more realistic than the Call of Doodies and Cripplefields above.

23 S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl

Multiple weapons, different ammo for different weapons, somewhat realistic ballistics and recoil. Weapons can deteriorate and worse condition means Realistic inventory system that takes both weight and bulk into account and forces the player to make really tough priorities. Aggressive AI that is really trying to kill you - not just standing there waiting to get shot. Some elements of the game are highly unrealistic such as artifacts that are "magical" items from high radiation which gives you bonuses. Geger meters, wild mutant animals etc. makes every trip really exciting.
As the game progresses it becomes more unrealistic story-wise but it could also be seen as the protagonist going crazy from radiation and solitude.

Wonderful game all in all that didn´┐Ż't get the attention it deserved.

24 PlanetSide 2
25 Far Cry 2

Its not super realistic at all but its really fun survival/exploration/shooter game. Your weapons will blow up in your face if you don't look after them and has it a great singleplayer. Also good gun fights and cool weapons.

26 SWAT 4

Developed by retired swat team members, how can it not be realistic. Gun goes to low ready (unlike many other games) Very tactical

I like this game because of the strict ROE. You can't shoot a suspect unless they shoot first.

I like it because you need to think before you shot at a person... I could be a civilian

Love it had for what seems like ever but I can tget enough of it

27 Squad (Alpha)

Although in Alpha state, it's what Arma could have been.

Best game I've played in forever

Much better than arma because I can get more than 20fps -_-

28 Rainbow Six Siege

Most realistic console game. Team killing is always active, one shot headshots, the only complaints that I have about this game is how you can tell if a player is in a dark room because they are always lighter colored compared to their surroundings. Another complaint is that glitches are a plenty but of course this game has many updates to come.

Very Realistic And Swat like, but if you are looking for a open-world like ArmA 3, play ArmA 3. If you want Call of Duty to be More realistic DEFINITELY PLAY THIS!

This is by far the most realistic shooter I have ever played. This game is my favorite and I just hit level 105.

To be honest this game was extremely refreshing, damage models are fairly realistic and the destruction in the game is incredible. Very intense and immersive.

29 Medal of Honor: Warfighter

Medal of Honor both warfighter and the 2010 version are the two best console first person shooter games there have ever been. The games really tap into the action, sophistication and most importantly the brotherhood that tier 1 operators and other military personnel share with one another.

Tells the real story about the real heros that died doing the job they love and that very few can do.

Warfighter, gun mechanics quite realistic.

30 Medal of Honor
31 Far Cry 3

Eh... kinda

32 Team Fortress 2

Because it's obviously highly realistic, and nothing can change that. Very realistic in physics and gun play and very tactical. Very realistic.

33 Overwatch
34 Project IGI: I'm Going In
35 Half-Life 2
36 Project Reality
37 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

I honestly think this is one of the most realistic campaigns that I have ever played in my life. I don't know how it's not in the top 10. I mean come on people you're not going to get a game that is real life. But Modern Warfare 2 deploys you in Afghanistan as an Army Ranger ripping terrorists in half with a mini gun. It doesn't get more real than that...

38 Spec Ops: The Line


39 Day of Defeat: Source

Realistic WW2 Shooter, Guns do actual realistic damage like real life ones do. Accuracy is a thing and recoil will be the end of you if you're not prepared.

40 Receiver

Most realistic gun mechanics ever seen. Hands down.
