    "For me Dirty Bomb is like the combination of the games Call of Battlefield + Counter Fortress 2 + Enemy Territory edition. Honestly i would have given this game an overhwlemingly negative review but after playing it for hours i changed my perspective. This game has a fun gameplay that requires considerate teamplay and it is also fast-paced. "

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that playing first-person shooting games may help repair brain damages? In 2016, a group from Macquarie University in Australia found out that playing FPS games had a positive effect on people rehabbing from traumatic brain injuries. Compared to patients on a normal rehab schedule, the group that added time to play Medal of Honor: Rising Sun on their daily program saw faster improvements on brain functions and became better in everyday tasks too. But the scientists behind the study did not sugarcoat the size of the study and said the theory needs more research for it to be concrete. "What we need now are larger randomized controlled trials in this area, to build on the positive results reported by the participants," said lead researcher Alexandra Vakili. Luckily, it is achievable and affordable. There are hundreds of free shooter games available online, and they can be played on different platforms. Aside from playing them on consoles, there are also fps games for iPhones, Android devices, and there are even shooting games for PC.

Among the studies, the game that researchers favored games from fps multiplayer game series, Medal of Honor. Vakili used the fifth installment, Rising Sun. A 2006 study by Daphne Bavelier and her group saw that playing Medal of Honor: Allied Assault help improve visual attention, while a 2011 research conducted in Berkeley stated that 40 hours of playing Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault helped cure amblyopia in 10 adults.

    "most gamers claim paladins is a clone of overwatch but i still think there are differences between the two fps shooters game. I love the fact that paadins has a number of gameplay modes particulary the Onslaught where games must capture an area to gain pointds. "

    "Like most FPS games Warface also has four different classes to choose from like most of the fps games, which is nothing new for most fps gamers. Like most of the shooter games it also offer customization of weapons. All in all i think this is just a meh fps game and i think there are better games out there. "

    "This game is offering a fresh and new idea on modern fps shooters game as this is almost has a chess-like pace. However, if you are someone who is not into taking a lot of time to build or develop a group of mechs to enjoy playing this I thin you would not enjoy this because playing this need patience. Or if you want you can spend money to get a mech faster."
