The original DOOM basically birthed the FPS genre, so it’s only appropriate that the 2016 reboot of the franchise would earn a spot on this list. Like the classic DOOM games, DOOM (2016) is fast-paced, high-octane, and bloody as hell.
What separates DOOM (2016) from the rest of the pack is its focus on aggressive gameplay, which rewards the player for pushing forward even when they’re low on supplies. Health can be earned be executing enemies with “glory kills”, ammo and armor are plentiful in advancing rooms, and ultra-powerful weaponry is hidden away in secret rooms. This is one modern FPS reboot that manages to impress with modern gameplay while retaining the tone and attitude of the original game.
