From Guns to Grenades and Grunts to Griefing – FPS Gaming Are Most Fundamental and Important Games For Gamers

FPS gaming is the most popular genre in gaming history. The gaming community always craves for such never-ending unfettered mayhem, and such melee has also penetrated minds of casual gamers. It resulted in games targeted to all rather than just hardcore devotees.

Although FPS isn’t myriad controversies, accusations like insensitivity abound and brain deadening violence, mass appeal of FPS games make it unlikely which could be ever expected the form to wither beneath such critiques.

The best FPS does not only have big sales, it must also have strong multiplayer component that allow users to virtually destroy each others. Here is a list of top 10 upcoming shooter games that will allow you to do so.

    As far as the knowledge of my gaming news concerns, and according to Wikipedia, Betrayer was released on Steam platform for PC in the month of March in 2014. I guess you can replace this game with some other new release. Some of my suggestions include Conan Exiles, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, and Jurassic World Evolution. It is a nice effort you made, and it would be nicer if you keep it updated too.

    You should update the list. I think Black ops new battle royale mode will be a pretty successful fps game. Don’t think it’s going to take Fortnite down tho.

    You should create a similar list for indie games, and put on it Ion Maiden or Project Warlock 🙂
