With the arrival of Dead Nation my interest in top-down shooters is piqued. Can anyone point me in the direction of a list of top games in this genre? Preferably this console generation.
erh not sure about on the console but pc has red nation on steam and crimsonland you could also call zombie driver one, out of those I like Crimson Land the best. Looking round the net there is also D-Bug, Naac, Kill Deal, project:xenoclone, shadowgrounds, Alien Shooters, R.I.P.3, Grid Wars, babo violent, Bloodmasters, Evil Invasion
I feel like there should be a distinction between top down dual joystick shooters (which is to say, dual joystick shooters), and vertical scrolling top down shooters (which is to say, top down shooters).
I was hoping to read about some similar games to Finalizer.
Oh dude, Finalizer.
There was this one top-down online shooter that was installed with the original Everquest and it was sooooo fun, but I can't remember the name. Maybe someone can help me out, or I'll head over to the Can't remember the name of that game thread... To the internets!
Not sure if it would still hold up but I remembered loving it.
EDIT: Found it. It's called Infantry Online and apparently it's free now. Check it out!
