Best FPS for an FPS newb.

Hey all. I'm a long time gamer that has always tended to stay away from the FPS genre, but lately they seem to have piqued my interest. What games would you recommend as good "gateway drugs" to this genre? The only FPS games that I have really played are Deus Ex 1 and 3 and Bioshock 1. Obvious examples seem to be CoD and Battlefield, but are there better ones out there? The main complaint about CoD is that all the games are too similar, but since I have never really played one it shouldn't matter.

Also, I have all seventh gen consoles if that helps.

The CoD games aren't that similar. You won't be able to do the same stuffs in mw 3 and BO 2. I do recommend Black Ops 2, but there are other.

Versus XIII is coming in 2014, GTA5 will be awesome, and PS4/Xbox 720 is coming in Dec. Lightning Return will be super awesome and I don't care what you think!

Doom 3 BFG edition, despite some technical hiccups others have noticed, is a good port of the old PC game, and includes Doom 1 and 2 as well.

Killzone 2 and 3 are great exclusive FPSes for PS3, and Borderlands 2 looks amazing. I had fun with Call of Duty 4 and CoD: Modern Warfare 2's campaigns.

The Darkness II looks creative and short.

Borderlands 2, The Darkness 1&2 and Far Cry 3 are some of my favorites. I'm looking forward to Metro: Last Light in a couple months as well, that should be real atmospheric like BioShock.

I'd recommend Prey.

It will let you play casually.

I'd say CoD. Battlefield isn't really newb-friendly, and the only other suggestions I could make don't have as large a number of players online.

Battlefield Bad Company 2.
