It's third-person, but I'm actually finding it better than first person. I can actually see my character's action.

^ Haha, you can play Fallout third person too

But the problem with Fallout is that you can't really "finish" it. Sure, it has a main story line, but the game doesn't end after that. It's pretty much a game where you do 5% story mode and 95% running off in the unknown wilderness in search of loot.
If you are into that kind of RPG stuff, pick it up. Fallout 3 that is, not New Vegas. New Vegas is a disgrace.

OK, I can't believe no one's mentioned Half-Life 2 here, and I created an account just to say this; Half-Life 2 is THE best first person shooter game created to date. It only features singleplayer, so you're fairly safe saying that it's the campaign that makes it so good. With Half-Life 2 you also get the source engine, that lets you download heaps and heaps of mods online, such as Minerva: Metastasis, Shadow over Innsmouth, Mission Improbable etc. that all are really good singleplayer shooters.
Another good one is Portal 2. It's a puzzle game, but you should still try it, you'll get sucked into the story immediately. Then there's horror games such as Amnesia or Call of Cthulhu or Slender which is free, and the best First Person game (half life is the best shooter) ever made, Minecraft. Minecraft looks crap but once you start playing, you're hooked. Then if you want just a really well done sci-fi campaign, you should try Crysis 2, it feature a hundred different ways of getting through each level. Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2 are good, and of course the rest of the Halo series if you're on Xbox. Arma II is a shooter as well, but it's so realistic that it's genre is officially "military combat simulator" rather than first person shooter.

Huh. Really? Why do you say that? Personally, I thought New Vegas superior to Fallout 3 in almost every aspect.

Shouvik, I think you should try both Fallout 3 and New Vegas and decide for yourself. There is nothing "disgraceful" about F:NV. It's a beautiful world with a great story and lots of memorable characters. Unlike its predecessor.

I'm sorry but I don't play very many war-themed FPS games apart from Fallout. I have, but I find them boring and they make me feel sick after a while (nothing to do with gore; I would say it's motion sickness but I'm fine playing other FP/S games, just not war games). But I do still have some suggestions that could slot into the FPS category.

To add onto those already mentioned, if you like horror games, the sequel to Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs is coming out early next year. You might also want to try another horror-adventure game called Penumbra. Some even say it's scarier than Amnesia, but I don't really think so, but it does have some very scary moments.

And like someone else already mentioned, BioShock Infinite will be released in February 2013.

Mirror's Edge, Portal and Dishonored are pretty fun too if you haven't already checked them out. There's also Skyrim, which surprisingly hasn't been mentioned yet.

And though this game is more catered towards multiplayer, Left 4 Dead 2 is pretty fun as well and can be played singularly on your lonesome if you'd prefer.

Good to see that one of my old threads with my new ID. I'm nightshade.
I've already got "Fallout: New Vegas" and a couple of other great FPS games. "Fallout: New Vegas" is great game, but I'm disappointed with the environment. Very depressive. Played for quite some days, but couldn't continue when I got some prettier games.
I'm firing up to buy "Alan Wake" and "Call of Duty: Black Ops 2". What do you think, guys?

I hope nobody said CoD yet!!

Crysis, Crysis 2, and soon to be Crysis 3.

Giddings me? Crysis series is barely a game and more of a graphics benchmark than anything else.
