Our choice of the best shooters from this year

The shooter, long standing staple of the hardcore gamer's diet and 2012 has been an especially vintage year for lovers of all things guns, bullets and carnage. From beginning to end we've seen a non-stop procession of classics and now with some even bigger releases to come, this looks like it could be one of the best years for the genre yet.... read more

The biggest shooters of 2012

Postby StonecoldMC » 18 Sep 2012, 15:07

Halo 4. Halo 4. Halo 4. Halo 4!

Big shout out to quite a few of those titles that ive already played (Max Payne, The Darkness) and ones that I will play (Dishounoured, Borderlands) but for me it really is all about stepping back into the shoes of the Chief and kicking ass!

Most anticipated Game this year by quite some margin.

Bring It f**king On :D !

Seconded. I've got Borderlands preordered too, but everything will be gathering dust when Halo 4's released. Including myself as I don't intend on moving for quite some time.

I don't know why you two are excited these all the look the same to me, the shooter genre is dead, it has been ruined, I'm done with games in fact I'm done with everything.....

In other news I'll take a new MOH, COD and Hitman and a 2nd hand Borderlands 2 with a side of 2nd hand Dishonoured please...... I'll leave Halo to the Games Workshop crowd :mrgreen:

Been hammering CS:GO like a madman the past few weeks. Looking forward to Dishonoured, Far Cry 3 (give my graphics card a nice kick up the arse) and the multiplayer madness of Halo 4!

Just a quick question to the Halo fans.

Do you find your first Halo to be your favourite? I really enjoyed Reach but I'm quite disappointed with CE Anniversary.

What Dodo said, but I'd pop Meh Warfighter slightly above black ops. Obviously not including the ones I've already played.
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

Resident Evil 6

It's got more shooting in than all those combined.

Hmm... I did love the original, but I loved Halo 3 as well... Reach was awesome but a little lacking in something but Halo 2 in my opinion is the weakest (the single player campaign anyway). So yeah, Anniversary/Halo 3 for me!
