The shooter genre is sometimes the most overrated, and often times, the most disappointing. It gets a lot of scrutinies from the industry and from gamers alike but they can still weave a fantastic story and break new grounds. While none of them happened this year we still had some awesome shooters.
Far Cry 4 steals the show by improving its own formula so well. While the characters are pretty weak this time around everything else that started making this series dull has immensely improved. Side quests are fun, the world is gorgeous, and the entire ecosystem of the world is just better. It’s not often that a series can improve upon itself after four sequels.
