BF3 rules! That's the only FPS that I need. Took me a while to get into it. Abouts 20 levels worth of awhile.

And at least we're finally over the Duke. No more news about its probable or unprobable resurection sheeh.

All very sound advice. And I agree on Bulletstorm, I had a blast with that game.

Dead Space 2 was great - and everyone forgets it was released in 2011.

Never played Dead Space, didn't seem my sort of thing.

Dead Space isn't an FPS.

Bulletstorm FTW! I really hope they release a sequel someday.

Bulletstorm was a financial flop, sadly, so I doubt they'll be a sequel.

It has been a disappointing year, or was or had...it's over anyway.
Not just for FPS's, but for games in general. Indies did better than mainstream and saved the year from being a total failure.
There was another absolute stinker: "F3EAR", or "FEAR 3". Forget the "fear" aspect...this was just a straight out FPS with supernatural elements to cover the load times when changing levels.
On the other hand you had "Serious Sam 3 BFE" and that is one old school A+ shooter. Having a rocking time with Sam, atm.

TBS's ("W40K: Space Marine") and OTSS's ("Dead Space 2" fared better, but not by much.
Fingers crossed for a better, and evolutionary 2012.

Human Revolution was nice, though not quite on par with the original, it kept a lot of what made it great (I played the original just before I started HR).

I loved HR. Still need to do a second playthrough of that on hard.

Not me until there's a bossfight fixing mod :P They're hard enough on normal, the people doing the fights must not have heard this game can also be stealthed.

Yea the bosses in that game were bad everything else was ok, it actually felt like a Deus Ex game should.

I am forced to agree on the bosses. All those lovely sneaky and hacky augments are fairly useless in a head-on collision with those guys.

Seriously, if you want some old school fun (reminding yourself while you do why FPS's were so much fun and addictive in the early days) "SS3: BFE" just has to be in your collection. Playing it takes me back years, even though the graphics are naturally of today's standard.
"DE: HR" isn't, strictly speaking an FPS so probably why it was not included. We're talking straight out shooters here.

Personally, I really enjoyed Duke Nukem. Even more it's latest DLC, with the new campaign.

@herodotus: Yeah, sorry guys, I missed out FEAR3 and Serious Sam 3, but they count. FEAR3 was a limp ending to a series that had gone downhill since the first (despite the okay co-op) and Serious Sam 3... I'm sorry man, it's fun, but it's not as good as The Second Encounter. Mostly because of Croteam's decision to set the entire game in Egypt AGAIN (which gets tedious before the end), the dull underground sections, and how the battles aren't quite as epic as they were in previous games.

@noobst3R: I did enjoy DNF too, particularly the DLC, but it most definitely was not the game it should've been. Disappointing all over.

Well, I have played them all(it feels like, but that's a slight exaggeration and only for PC at that... ;) ) and Duke was a mess, they shoul have kept it more like the original and skipped the only 2 weapons at a time and jumping puzzles...
Bulletstorm was a great SP experience but GFWL made a mess out of the MP part.
Rage is fine, a bit booring though and the console first is a bit too evident, and it is more on the gameplay side and problem with FOV and stuff, car is hard to steer on PC etc...
Homefront, anyone missed my opinion on that reeking pile of shit game? Easily the worst game this year.
Dead Space 2 was crap. Controls were lackluster, the scare moments was a bit like Doom3, weapons and armours were briefly explained and you hardly knew what was going on ha,f the ti e. Good that you just had to keep going and kill stuff to solve... no this was no fun...
Crysis 2 had all things going for it, but in the end it was a shooter without feeling and the MP didn't get better. I blame the consoles here as well...
MW3 I didn't even think twice about not touching that...
Hard Reset, I hot that on the winter sales and it has the right feel when you move about and shoot things at least....
BF3 a good game, but here as well, there are things that has gotten to be the new requirements, grinding is the shit or you hack it.... :S
Deus Ex and Space Marine was two really good games, but not entirely FPS games IMO.

And I agree that DLC and pre-order are the devil's work in games right now.
Pre-order exclusive shit for like three hours after launch when everyone and your couains dog can get it at a discount and then in hte end of the year we sell it out for 50% price cut all included on STEAM...
Tell me, why should I even try to be a loyal consumer?
Game makers, developers and releasers of games - 2011 was more then above though, 2011 was the year when almost every released game was crap from day 1 and required immediate patching tobe playable. Every single game had something really problematic that got paying customars in a bunch...

2012, the message is received, don't pre-order anything, don't be firstwith anything, don't support anyone, and don't trust in old glory title games. Wait for STEAM sales and price, problems, DLC and bugs will betaken care of...
