30+ Best FPS Games Of The Last 5 Years

#20 Fallout 4

If you’re a fan of the Fallout franchise then it’s likely you’ve already picked up the latest release. However, if you’re completely new to the series, Fallout 4 still marks as a great first entry. Set during the events of a nuclear war, players manage to escape into a vault, only to awaken hundreds of years into the future. What’s left of your world is nothing more than decay and outsiders trying to make it by in this new world.

Each installment to the Fallout franchise manages to bring out an incredible wasteland to explore and Fallout 4 is no exception to that trend. You’ll come across old ruins, new structures, and a fleshed out cast of characters to meet along your journey.

#19 Call of Duty: Black Ops III

Call of Duty: Black Ops III is the sequel to Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Taking place in 2065, most of the world has become too advanced causing warfare to resort back to soldiers doing most of the work on-ground. However, this time, the soldiers have the ability in using augmentations that will allow soldiers to become cyborg supersoldiers. Of course, the highly popular zombies mode was brought back giving players swarms of the undead to defeat wave after wave.

#18 Far Cry 5

The fifth main title within the franchise, Far Cry 5, takes place within the United States of America in a fictional Montana place known as Hope County.

Within the narrative, Far Cry 5 pins players against Joseph Seed, a leader of a cult who has forced his way into controlling Hope County. As more innocent civilians become trapped and forced into submission under Joseph Seed’s rule, only a handful of resistance stands between Seed and his reign.

Just as before, players can expect the title to deliver as a first-person shooter in an open world environment which can be explored either on foot or through vehicles. However, the campaign can be experienced both as a single player narrative or through cooperative multiplayer.

Likewise, the game will include a map editor where players will be able to build maps with objectives to complete for when players finish the main campaign.

#17 Prey

The 2017 release of Prey from developers Arkane Studios is stated to be an FPS with survival horror elements. This is a futuristic title where players are set on a space station that has been tainted by a hostile alien species. During this exploration journey, gamers will be stepping into the shoes of Morgan Yu who must find a means to get rid of the alien species and escape the station.

You may recall the Prey franchise from when it first launched back in 2006 and it’s worth mentioning that this is not a reboot or remaster. Instead, the developers identify Prey as a reimagining of the IP with a new narrative.

#16 Paladins

Often considered an Overwatch clone, Paladins is still a fantastic game. There are some slight differences between the two hero-based shooters, but you’ll still find that each hero in Paladins will have their own unique abilities that they can bring in to the fight.

Luckily, with Paladins, you can enjoy the game across several platforms making it a video game well worth trying out. With hero-based shooters becoming popular, Paladins is one of the video game titles that continues to make its way on gamers consoles and PCs.

Likewise, the video game also holds a number of different gameplay modes which can be as simple as a Team Deathmatch or more focused missions type modes such as Onslaught where players must capture an area to gain points.
