2013 First-Person Shooter Game of the Year

/ Jan 23rd, 2014 No Comments

Bioshock Infinite Story Explained

In 2013, three popular FPS franchises returned. While competition is always fierce in the FPS category, these three franchises have a proven knack for developing addictive, visually stunning shooters. When it came to choosing Gaming Illustrated’s FPS Game of the Year, the newest entries in these franchises stood out as the top competitors.

The Nominees

Call of Duty: Ghosts – Of perhaps all FPS franchises, Call Of Duty is the most successful. The developers and publishers of games in the series have spent a long time perfecting the formula for what makes a great FPS. Call of Duty: Ghosts, the newest entry in the franchise, does not disappoint. The game received a 91% in our review. In the single-player missions, gamers had the opportunity to shoot, knife and generally decimate enemies in a variety of exotic locals. Whether cavorting about under the sea or shooting baddies in a visually gorgeous space orbit, Ghosts has a high entertainment factor. As always, Call of Duty continues to set a high standard in FPS multiplayer frenzy. Those looking for a fast-paced shoot ’em up will enjoy the improved perks system as well as new maps, new weapons and the option to personalize a female soldier.

Battlefield 4 – What set Battlefiled 4 apart from other 2013 FPS titles was its stunning graphics, environmental detail and fantastic sound, which is why it easily merited an 88% in our review. From start to finish, the campaign missions are a feast for the eyes. Gamers drive the streets of Shanghai during a storm, escape from a Russian prison and fight through a sinking Naval destroyer. While multiplayer has its share of issues, new maps, weapons and customization options make it worth the wait for DICE to work out the bugs. For FPS gamers who like a bit of strategy and vehicular manslaughter in their multiplayer gaming, Battlefield 4 is the best option.

BioShock Infinite – Of the three FPS nominees, BioShock Infinite received our highest review score at 95%. Irrational Games had a tough job in following up on previous titles in the series, especially given the change of scenery and characters. The dynamic between Booker and Elizabeth while traversing the cloud city Columbia is riveting to watch and the storyline is complex enough to keep gamers guessing. Irrational continues the series’ trend of gorgeous level design and compelling gameplay. New abilities like A Murder of Crows are fun to use, especially when combined with other abilities to set powerful traps for aggressive enemies.

The Winner – BioShock Infinite

So much more can be said about what makes BioShock Infinite such an amazing FPS but it’s better that gamers discover Infinite for themselves. Infinite demonstrated that FPS games can and should be more than shooting and destruction. With a thoughtful, well-written storyline, mesmerizing level design, a solid weapons and abilities system and fun collectibles like Voxophones and Kinetoscopes, BioShock Infinite is more than deserving of Gaming Illustrated’s 2013 FPS Game of the Year title.
