Again, if you play the game like your average shooter, then it will disappoint. Firefights are almost always the worst choice in a given scenario, or at least second best to stealth. The gunplay can be janky, but things like being able to shoot out lights or use sound and echos to your advantage make the game extremely entertaining. Plus the atmosphere of the game world is what is so engrossing, not the graphics or photorealism or anything like that.

Yeah, I assumed Metro would be an action or firefight focused shooter. Not really looking to play any stealth shooters right now.

Does anyone know of any action-focused shooters? Ones that encourage annihilating everyone in your path?

DOOM. The new one. It's a blast, and the game is so action-focused that the "f*** plot, f*** your backstory, f*** your motivations" mindset is built into the story/flow of the game. It's kind of beautiful.

You don't need to stealth around if you don't want to, you can do rambo on every area and every enemy if you want just like in an action fps game.

You definitely can, but all the game's flaws become glaring when you do. Framerate hiccups, janky mechanics, pretty easy to kill AI, etc.

I own DOOM on PS4, and I got about halfway through it, but I put it down when I got stuck on a certain boss. One of these days I'll pick it back up.

Know any other good action-based shooters?

I'll probably get DOOM on PC more than anything, only reason is for mods. I imagine the mods must be awsome for it.
