Disclaimer: What constitutes "next-gen" is entirely subjective so please don't yell at me if you disagree with any of the entries.

Which one of these shooters do you think looks the best or which one have you had the most fun playing?

@songwriter1987 What?

Neither of the new consoles are even out yet. Not to mention, the launch titles will be tenuously "next gen", but at the moment, none of us have played a full game on either of the new consoles.

I'm not disagreeing with any of the entries, simply the entire premise of your poll.

Wait, how is what constitutes "next-gen" entirely subjective? If it's out on a next-gen console, it's a next-gen game.

DOOM.

You're both crazy, Mount and Blade is the best first-person slasher.

Right, right. Don't forget Gone Home. That came out on PC, too. It's easily the best next gen first person searcher.

Pshh. Shooters schmooters. The title only mentioned "Next Gen" FPS. What constitutes "FPS" is entirely subjective so please don't yell at me if you disagree with any of the acronyms I think apply here.

Gone Home is clearly the best FPS. Because of the PC.

#15 Posted by MildMolasses (3211 posts) -

Yo, Quake 3 is the best next gen FPS because of the PC. Also, SHOGO

Because there is never a new generation of PC, so arguably the lines of what looks next generation is more subjective. For example, I thought the Witcher 2 looked pretty next gen and it came out in 2011. Also, is BF4 a next gen game? If yes, well, guess what, its available on PC right now. So are we in the next gen right now or on friday november 15?

Which is the exact reason why 'generation' only applies to consoles

Yes there is. There is a new generation of CPUs or graphic cards for example.

Your list sucks!

The only two games you can buy right now and get a taste of next-gen (running both on a PC) are BF4 and CoD Ghosts and they don't feel next-gen (especially if you have played BF3 on PC previously).

Ghosts

like @mildmolasses alluded to, the borders of a "generation" are determined by consoles, while the tech frontier is always on the PC.

Half Life 2 is great on PC.

#24 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (5135 posts) -

I wouldn't know, since I haven't played them yet, but I'm really interested in both Destiny and Titanfall.

#25 Posted by TopSteer (634 posts) -

I'm going to eschew your poll and say that Killzone is the one that I'm most excited for.

#26 Edited by benpicko (1984 posts) -

@theht: because of the PC

If that's the case, nearly every PC game of the last few years are 'next gen'

#27 Posted by L33T_HAXOR (240 posts) -

Wolfenstein 3D

#28 Posted by CynicalBuzzard (240 posts) -

Duke Nukem

#29 Edited by SlashDance (1801 posts) -

I'd say Metro Last Light, although I have to give bonus points to Crysis 3 for having the worst dialogue I've heard in like 5 years.

#30 Posted by hermes (1350 posts) -

eehh... Bioshock ? Yes, I will go with Bioshock

Also Portal 2... because PC

PC has nothing to do with "Gen", when people talking about "this gen" or "next gen" they are talking about the console generations. As a result Far Cry 3, Metro Last Light, and Crysis 3 are not next gen games because they all came out on consoles from the current generation which ends in about 2 weeks or less.

As for what I would pick as most promising next gen FPS as in game played in first person where you shoot a gun.... Destiny.

#32 Posted by EXTomar (4446 posts) -

Why not include Borderlands 2 or Portal 2? Both have as interesting a setup and story as any of those games where only Metro has more. If you really want a discussion, why not include Bulletstorm or Spec-Ops The Line?

Wait, who said the current generation was ending in two weeks? PlayStation 2 still had games being released for it this year...

Fair enough but as you will see from my top 10 list you get to a point where I think it is fair to call a game on older hardware current Gen. Look at Persona 4, it came out YEARS after the launch of 360 and PS3, hell I played it on my PS3 PS2 game or not. When it is that type of situation I think it is fair to call it a current gen game.

#35 Posted by Blu3V3nom07 (4137 posts) -

I be all up on next-gen.

Doom

well, in two weeks current-gen becomes last-gen, and next-gen becomes current-gen. From a pure semantics standpoint, current-gen does end in about two weeks

#37 Edited by Corvak (831 posts) -

Using graphical fidelity as a measure for "current-gen" or "next-gen" you could argue that all of the shooters in the last 18 months are "next-gen" if you look at the PC version.

If you measure based on console release - placing PC versions in with the latest console generation they launched in, only Battlefield 4 and CoD: Ghosts qualify for the poll.

Now as far as "Favourite FPS of 2013" I would have to vote for Bioshock Infinite, and give honorable mention to the Rise of the Triad remake for being crazy fun.

#38 Edited by SomeJerk (3130 posts) -

Where's the secret Killzone Shadow Fall option because they can only go toward better graphics with how dumbed down they have become ever since Doom and Quake 1 with the exceptions of System Shock 1 and 2..

(Only played Bioshock 1 which was turned over boob in my opinion, loving SysSho2 too much maybe)
