Crysis lol.

Uh What?


First, what constitutes timeless? Because I think Mario is going to take the lead in this.

dark souls better be on that list instead of crysis, crysis was just very pretty, but otherwise was a very standard shooter.

How is Crysis a "standard" shooter? Nothing about it is standard. Call of Duty is standard. Battlefield is standard. Medal of Honor is standard. Crysis is the exact opposite of standard.

You can tell a lot about a person based on how they treat the weaker members of society.

Of all the classics on PC you think a turd of a console port is "timeless"?

Generic shooter with special powers. It's got nothing on Deus Ex.

There a handful of timeless shooters that deserve the title over Crysis.

Half - Life
Counterstrike
Deus Ex
Doom
Duke Nukem
Quake 1 and 2
Jedi Knight
