Good PC futuristic shooter?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN,

Recently I watched the Prey 2 trailer . And it gave me the craving for some good PC futuristic shooters. So then the search began, I've looked everywhere. Nothing mad.gif. And the ones I did find where from the early 2000s, not saying those aren't great and all but I'd like something from this decade. Now before you make a suggestion let me tell you the ones I've already played.

Crysis (1 and 2)
Half life (1 and 2)
Doom series
Quake series
Unreal Tournament series.
Mass Effect series

So if you have any good suggestions they'd be much appreciated. Really got quench this thirst tonguesmiley.gif

Bulletstorm, Mirror's Edge, and I highly recommend Deus Ex HR--very futuristic yet realistic. It has a high replay value, and it's a unique FPS that doesn't play like a typical FPS. <--redundancy warning biggrin.gif

Hard Reset is awesome. Serious Sam 3 will keep you on your toes and it is great mindless fun. But if you are after story driven FPS with RPG elements Deus Ex:HR would be an excellent pick.

post #8 of 17
Deus Ex: Human Revolution should definitely be on this list....RAGE as well. RAGE has a terrible reputation because of the problems that plagued it at launch, but it's now a solid game and one that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Last but not least....Borderlands!!! It's even more fun if you have buddies to co-op with online...not only that, but you'll be caught up for when Borderlands 2 releases later this year.
