The 50 best first-person shooters EVER

Tactics come first in the Brothers In Arms series, where players are encouraged to study the battlefield for the best positions before gearing up for the fight. With challenging enemy AI that changed positions despite your attempts at flanking and swathes of enemies to discourage any run-n-gun gameplay, we can’t say this was accurate to real warfare but it was certainly challenging during a time when WWII shooters were primarily gung-ho.

Especially telling considering it released in the early days of first-person shooters on console, when many were trying (and failing) to emulate the heavy hitters on PC.

Wolfenstein 3D

We associate the classic id Software designers – Carmack, Romero, Hall – with Wolfenstein 3D, a widely copied, much-respected and endlessly influential run-and-gun through a distorted view of the Second World War. BJ Blazkowicz is one of the true meat-headed heroes of video gaming, and his legacy is a billion smoking bullet holes, Nazi corpses and a robot Hitler.
