There’s really nothing quite like getting invested into a great shooter. With games like Destiny 2 reinventing itself with new mechanics and storytelling, and Doom Eternal leaning further into combat puzzle formula, the shooters of 2020 offered players new ways to embrace fast-paced action and responsive shooting gameplay in satisfying ways. Along those games, there were also other shooters like Half-Life: Alyx that embraced new technology to further enhance the sense of immersion and reshape our view of what first-person shooters are capable of.
