First-person shooters are an over-saturated market in the video game industry. It seems like every studio, developer and publisher wants to push shooting games on players everywhere — and we’re okay with that! FPS games may be overdone, but there’s a reason for that: We love them! Shooting terrorists, zombies, aliens or whatever else from a first-person perspective is exciting and exhilarating, and the genre is the main reason plenty of people around the world play games at all.

We’ve gathered the five best first-person shooters that launched this year. Read on to see which FPS games you’ve missed in 2014. And don’t forget to take the poll at the bottom of this post to let us know which FPS game of 2014 is your favorite!


1. Grand Theft Auto V

Due to the addition of first-person gameplay in the new-gen ports of their critically acclaimed game, Grand Theft Auto V technically counts as an FPS. Regardless, Rockstar Games knows how to make a living, breathing world. The Grand Theft Auto series is known for giving players absolute freedom in violent, crime-ridden cities parodying America’s most famous locales. In Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar Games allows for players to switch seamlessly between three protagonists: a rich family man struggling with maintaining relationships, a bonafide gangster and a psychotic hillbilly. Heists are a new addition that mimic the famous bank robbery mission everybody loves from Grand Theft Auto IV. All the other stuff people adore about GTA is there: guns, strip clubs, sweet rides and a solid story tying it all together. There’s a reason Grand Theft Auto V is sitting pretty at a 97 on Metacritic.

2. Far Cry 4

Far Cry 4 – Survive Kyrat TrailerThe setting for Far Cry 4 is dangerous and full of unpredictable characters.2014-10-14T19:44:34.000Z

Do you like first-person shooters set in a giant open world? How about ziplining, hang gliding, big game hunting and killing bad guys? If so, Far Cry 4 is up your alley. The newest addition to the series steps away from the lush environment of the tropics from Far Cry 3 and drops you in the middle of a civil war in the Himalayas. Besides moving your way through the story, there will be distractions to keep your entertained. The most attractive feature is a new one that allows players to invite friends who don’t even own the full game into their world to conquer cooperative missions together. If allowing your buddies to game with you free of charge to them isn’t a great idea, I don’t know what is.

Price: $51.31 (14 percent off MSRP)

No one can deny the extensive hype Titanfall received leading up to is release. Being one of the first notable exclusives for the Xbox One made everyone perk up and pay attention, and the fact that it was developed by ex-Call of Duty devs just added more to the game’s already robust credibility. Titanfall takes the traditional first-person shooter format and adds parkour and armored mechs to the mix, making for addictive and frantic online death matches.

When Bungie, the creators of the original Halo trilogy, announced their new sci-fi shooter, the world couldn’t wait to explore a new universe full of aliens, robots and mysterious locations. While the final game disappointed some fans who expected something monumental, what Destiny does offer is best-in-class shooting and looting with only a subpar story and some lackluster missions holding it back. What’s unique about Destiny is its shared world experience where players interact with others during independent single-player and cooperate missions. With limitless multiplayer and a stream of content additions and updates heading its way, Destiny will only get more addicting as time goes on. Oh, and there’s also dancing.

Call of Duty is one series that has withstood the test of time, with releases spanning more than a decade and three console generations. The franchise has tackled everything from World War II-era battles to modern-day combat. The newest entry in the series, Advanced Warfare, takes place in the future, where jetpacks and hovering grenades are staples in military technology.

I mean, even IGN gave it a 9.1.
