The best First Person Games currently available


FIRST-PERSON GAMES

First person shooters (FPS) are some of the most popular games available on PC, and for good reason: they present quick and thrilling action where players war against robots, demons, and even each other. Back in 1993, it was a first-person shooter game — "Doom" — that was installed on more computers worldwide than Windows 95.

The FPS games that stand out, like our picks below, all bring out new gameplay elements that shake up the genre. "PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds" lets you go head to head with 99 other players as you scavenge on a giant island. And if you’re careful, strategic, and listen to every footstep and heartbeat, you’ll cement your team to victory in the competitive "Rainbow Six: Siege." So steady your mouses and aim carefully: these are the best shots for FPS games on PC.

About FIRST-PERSON GAMES

‘PUBG Mobile’

FIRST-PERSON GAMES

Full of tense, heart-pounding action, the battle royale first-person shooter mode of "PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds" is addictively fun. The game can be played in third person mode, but the excitement heats up in the first-person perspective where there is no advantage of peripheral vision.​​​

"PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds" is simple. You (alone, with a friend in a duo, or with three friends in a squad) and 99 other players start the game by parachuting out of an airplane onto an island. From there, you must scavenge for weapons, armor, and energy drinks while fighting to survive. During this time, the safe areas in the map shrink, so you’ll be rushing by foot or in a vehicle through forests, abandoned suburbs, and over high mountains finding a safe spot to secure. If other players spot you, they'll try to kill you — only the last one standing can win.

For the uninitiated, Fortnite is a battle royale-style game full of color and strategy. In the game, you’ll need to master building structures to truly compete with the best — but even if you don’t, it’s still a fun time.

‘Rainbow Six:Siege’


FIRST-PERSON GAMES

"Rainbow Six: Siege" is delightfully strategy-heavy, relying on diligent communication as you and your other teammates move about to complete missions. The online competitive first-person shooter isn’t just about pointing and shooting — instead, it rewards players who figure out the best strategies to overcome other players.

The main mode in "Rainbow Six: Siege" is a five-versus-five match where one team protects a target (like a bomb or hostage) and fortifies their positions while the other finds a way to infiltrate their position, hunting for intel using remote control drones. Since its release, the game has expanded to include over 40 different operators that players can choose from. Each has a unique ability, like using sledgehammers to break open walls, employing armor packs, and detecting enemies through walls with a heartbeat sensor. You’ll rappel up rooftops, breakthrough floors, voice chat and pin map markers with teammates, and if you want to take a break, you can always practice with solo missions against enemy AI that’ll train you up.
