#4 Metro: Last Light
If you're looking for a tense shooter that'll have your heart racing in no time, look no further than Metro: Last Light. The game picks up where Metro: 2033 left off, following Artyom as he attempts to keep the peace in Moscow's metro system where survivors are holed up. The radiated earth above is home to some powerful mutants like the demon (pictured above) which, along with the inhabitable land and air on the surface, forces humans underground.
In 2033, Artyom launched a missile strike against telepathic mutants known as Dark Ones, which threatened to wipe out the existing survivors. However, a year later, during the events of Last Light, one Dark One still remained. Artyom, along with a military force known as The Rangers are tasked with tracking down the final Dark One in order to wipe out the threat for good.
However, that becomes a little easier said than done when it's revealed that their target is a child. Soon Artyom begins to question his actions of the previous title as he struggles to keep the ones he loves safe, all the while facing off against multiple underground factions and mutants.
Metro: Last Light is a first-person shooter filled with some incredible firearms. However, the real fun in this title comes in the higher difficulty, where ammunition and other supplies become rare commodities, forcing you to make sure every shot you make hits. Throughout most of the game, you'll be travelling through the dark, or at best dimly lit tunnels while consistently looking over your back for any threats that may be lurking near you.
Metro: Last Light is a great shooter wrapped up in a dismal and pessimistic package, worthy of anyone's time.
