    "I'm glad to see the ARMA 2 mod that was responsible for PUBG has been successfully ported as an ARMA 3 mod. You get pretty much the same experience with the cost. What's not to like? "

    "With the number of vehicles available in the game, it was only a matter of time before someone comes up with a mod for them. In this case, a racing mode in which you can race a rally track using the game's various vehicles. Definitely one of my best ARMA 3 mod for the unique fun that it brings."


Wolfenstein 3D released back in 1992? ID Software developed the game for MS-DOS. Many considered it as the grandfather of the modern Wolfenstein franchise. As well as World War II shooters, and the FPS genre as a whole and inspired some of the best fps game in history. It looks retro compared to today’s shooters. Many considered this game to be very violent and transgressive at the time. ID Software followed this up with DOOM the following year in 1993. It too had frenetic, high-speed combat that inspired many shooters that came after it. Games like Quake and Unreal focused more on testing the player's skill in combat. The Halo series defined FPS game for consoles and released in 2001. Medal of Honor: Allied Assault started the trend for FPS game based on war themes.

Today, the FPS landscape is much different than before. The best shooting games for PC focuses more on the multiplayer and online aspect of the game. Another aspect of these games that have gained popularity is mods. They provide new modes, game improvements, and bug fixes. Things that developers have not introduced or addressed yet. One such game is ARMA 3 which has a healthy modding community. ARMA mods offer plenty of choices. Some are the usual mods like PVP modes. While others are rather unique survival modes and even a battle royale mode.

    "Defend yourself, earn to buy supplies, survive. It's an ARMA 3 mod that deserves its own standalone game which will probably happen at some point in the future."

    "This obviously draws some inspiration from GTA games with how it plays and this one is for free. It plays like a GTA but it still lacks the polish and polish and scale that those games have. It's a nice effort overall though."
