Depends on if we are talking multiplayer or single player.

MW2. COD is the pinnacle of this genre.

For fast paced (twitch) shooters, yes.

I think you mean “good, polished shooters.”

Return to Castle Wolfenstein (2001) was surprisingly great.

It's tricky naming the best games when the tech changes so much. Quake was amazing when it came out, but obviously not so much now. I try to think think of two things:

1. Did it blow my mind when it was a new title?
2. If I sat down and played it today, would I still appreciate it, or find it tedious?

I think the new Doom should be in this conversation. I don't think it's the best, though.

All the good COD games hit both of these points for me, and I think they actually grow more impressive as they age. I love GoldenEye and all but it has been surpassed by a considerable margin, IMO.

Because you play so many? Plenty of other games are polished and have differing weights/feel to the mechanics.

I play a lot. And then quit a lot after 30 minutes because they suck. Like the new Doom.

I prefer Halo, Overwatch, and the Battlefield games to CoD. Even an older game like Timesplitters 2 holds up surprisingly well.

Halo has always been meh for me. Don’t like the Battlefield games at all. No interest in Overwatch.

You prefer CoD, but there's lots of different flavors of FPSs out there. Even the new Doom and Wolfenstein games are top notch mechanically.

I rented Wolfenstein and did not like it. Played it for like 5 hours and that was enough.

Disagree completely. I hated what I played of Doom and Wolfenstein. Controls feel wonky AF.

OK, I guess you're right then. We shouldn't even discuss other games.

I don’t know why you’re being so weird about this

You make a statement that is your personal opinion. I agree with it given the type of FPS CoD games are. You then make another statement saying CoD are the only good, polished shooters. I disagree with this point. You then shut down every other alternate as being even comparable.

Trying not to be weird, just saying there are different types of games in the genre that many prefer to CoD games.
