Disclaimer: I dont use Metacritic to decide if I like a game. but a lot of people do! so I was lookin at the list of the highest rated first person shooters of all time by meta score n wanted to know what you guys thought :smile:

disclaimer 2: I took some games out from the list, cuz the list is first person games. So shyt like Skyrim bein on there dont really make sense for my thread since im takin this strictly about first person shooters. I also took out compilations, only focusing on single games.

highest score of all time is 97, which is only 3 shooters. its funny cuz Halo 1 n Perfect Dark is my personal favorite 1 n 2 of all time.

Perfrct dark is 100% the goat
That shyt was so next level n creative compared to everything else at the time. Rare at its very peak.

My biggest issue is no doom 1993. Maybe because its so old there wasnt a lot of reciews at that time?

Some of those older games metacritic ratings are way too lopsided. A lot of them only have like 20 or so reviews, while new games coming out got like 70-100 reviews. No matter what thats gonna bring your average way down. Same deal with Zelda OoT, people say its teh greatest game of all time because it has a 99 metacritic rating but it only has 22 reviews and al ot of them are from nintendo outlets

All of these scores are done with the concept of 'at that time'

I can't argue any of these if you take into account what was out at the time.

Perfect Dark: Off the heels of Goldeneye, this did everything better. Needed the expansion pak to run it but that 97 is deserved. Best multiplayer game ever when it released.

Metroid Prime: Retro took the classic sidescroller 3D and pretty much nailed it. Graphically pushed the Gamecube, controls well with that weird controller.

Halo Combat Evolved: Large, expansive world, the first time feeling like you were really in a war. The game play loop of Halo comes in bursts and those bursts were among the best ever at the time. Drive the warthog over a ravine and while in midair, look up at the skybox and see banshees flying around. Look down and see all of these skirmishes happening. Master Chief is the main character but you felt like one of many attempting to stop the Covenant. Not to mention the multiplayer split-screen fun.

All three were worthy at the time.

At the time of release, Ocarina of Time was almost unequivocally the greatest game ever created. Hell, I'd argue that it was better than that average. It had the weight of Nintendo on it because the Nintendo 64 didn't sell that well and for a game that had to be great, it was better than great. I can't think of a game besides maybe Halo 2 or 3 that had so much hype and antipation for it and it was better than the hype. Breath of the Wild didn't but the sequel may surpass this.

I was there for it. I bought every magazine with an OoT cover and was ready on the verge of losing my mind when it got delayed for the last 7 months.

As someone who only had a N64 at the time, yeah...I get it. It’s still not a 99
