It's going to be hard to top 2016 on the FPS front, with major titles arriving from just about every franchise, including some seriously long-dead ones!
Doom made its triumphant (and ultra gory and fast paced) return after years of delays. Blizzard's Overwatch smashed the the FPS and MOBA genres together and continues to dominate. The ridiculously awesome katana and blazing guns combo of Shadow Warrior 2 showed us we didn't need to take anything too seriously.
Of course there were the titanic dueling giants offering very different visions for FPS supremacy: gritty trench warfare hell with Battlefield 1 and futuristic space combat sim Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Sadly, Titanfall 2 fell between those battling behemoths and has been overlooked by the masses, but hopefully will still rally at the holiday season.
Some FPS entries weren't as well received, with Homefront: The Revolution getting more than its share of lumps at launch and an overall “meh” rating online (even though I personally quite enjoyed it and still play regularly).
Now that we've hit the end of the year, it's time to look forward at what's to come with our 10 most anticipated shooters of 2017. It might be hard to overcome what arrived in 2016, but developers are sure putting up a valiant effort covering everything from realistic, squad-based games to fast-paced arena shooters and even a few unexpected sci-fi and horror entries.
