It’s finally award season here at Twinfinite! Over the month of December we’re going to look back at our favorite games of 2019. That includes the wealth of strong shooters the year has seen, from the field of modern combat to space-faring adventures. These are the best shooters of 2019.
Voted on by our editors, these were the shooters that stood apart from the pack. We considered both first-person and third-person shooters, so let’s take a look at the best of the year.
Best Shooters of 2019
Honorable Mention: Metro Exodus
Deputy Guides Editor Tom Hopkins: Venturing out of Moscow’s tunnels and into a semi-open world was a great thing for the Metro series. While the larger areas weren’t as creepy and atmospheric as the dark corridors of the earlier games, Exodus is a much more impressive and well-rounded shooter.
Not only is the actual combat a lot of fun, but Exodus incorporates crafting and gear maintenance in both the open world and more linear sections. You have to think about a lot more than spiders jumping out at you and killing all the bandits.
With you having to pump up the pressure in some weapons, craft more ammo, and keep guns clean, Metro Exodus isn’t a simple case of point and shoot, making it a big step forward for the series and a standout in the shooter world.
Add to that the impressive world and emotional story full of interesting characters and Metro Exodus is one of the best shooters of 2019.
