Headshot: A Visual History Of First-Person Shooters

Here’s a gander at FPS games throughout the years. My personal list is F.E.A.R. (mechanic: slow-mo), Halo (engine), BioShock (storytelling), and Crysis (graphics).

آ…there have been many high and low points throughout this long, violent, gory history. Minus '90s cult favorite Descent's (because I personally consider it a flight combat shooter), these are the shooters that pushed the genre forward or held it back. Many of us encountered at least one that truly spoke to us, but together, these titles made it cool to shoot pixel-rendered dudes, dudettes, mutants, and weird alien creatures in the face.
