1. Halo 4 (2012)

Although we’ve looked at Halo: Combat Evolved in this list already, we can’t help but give Halo 4 a shout out. The game marked the long awaited return of the series’ iconic protagonist, Master Chief.

He’d been locked up tight in a cryo-tube since the end of Halo 3’s campaign back in 2007, an ending which had been left pretty open ended until 2012. Prior to Halo 4 he’d been on board a ship hurtling through deep space with little to no hope of being found, only having given his A.I. assistant Cortana specific instructions to "wake me when you need me."

Turns out that time came in 2012 with the awakening of an ancient evil, pitting Master Chief and Cortana against a whole new level of peril.

The saga following the character was resurrected by ex-Bungie Studios members, under the newly formed outfit of 343 Industries, doing a ruddy good job indeed. Beautiful campaign, emotive story, glorious settings, and a well balanced and savagely intense selection of multiplayer games. Just how any Halo game should be.

Few gaming genres stimulate the animated discussion that FPS games do. For every gamer who thinks Call of Duty is the greatest thing ever to happen to home consoles, there's a horde of others who despise everything it stands for. First person shooter popularity has given rise to swathes of middle-of-the-road shooters, so in the interests of separating the wheat from the chaff, here are the FPS games we think no-one should miss out on.
