    Best Shooter Game for Beginner Gamer

    Hey everyone I am looking for a recommendation on a good shooter game for my PS4. I currently own Need For Speed Rivals for my PS4 and almost have it best so it's time for a new game. I haven't played video games since I had a PS2 probably 10 years ago and a lot has changed. I played Halo once and liked it but that's not a Playstation game. I've been looking at getting COD, Battlefield 4 or Killzone. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance

    big elephant in the room is Killzone: Shadow Falls. EDIT: nvm, you did mention KZ.


    I feel like that's the perfect series for people that are new to FPSs. it's not the best FPS out there but it definitely is supposed to be user friendly and yet have some degree of depth. it's really the only option i can think of at launch. if you were talking about the PS3, i would have more suggestions.

    COD is another great one but only if you play online a lot.

    Call of Duty should be good since you haven't played the series before.

    Any of the ones you mentioned will be a good place to start. They're all arcade games with slightly different feel.

    CoD is fast and quick. BF is a large map based game and KZ is often a little bit slower than both mentioned. I wouldn't necessary day any is harder than the other.

    Though in currently playing a lot of BF4 as offering the most fun experience as the scope is bigger for what you can do.

    I personally don't feel there is any 'beginners' shooter. If you've never played one you'll pick it up eventually no matter what you play

    In my experience, Call of Duty would be the easiest and most accessible shooter, but both Killzone and especially Battlefield are a lot more enjoyable long term and if you can stick at one of 'em amidst all the initial dying you'll find a fun, robust game.

    Agreed COD is easy to play and get into, and if you haven't played much of the series before then it's a good place to start! Killzone for me is a better game all round and not that difficult to play but Battlefield has it's own perks! If it was up to me I would say go for Killzone as I have not played BF4 and COD is a bit of the old same old!

    Thanks for the replies! I was just looking and I can get any of the games I mentioned for $39.99 with a coupon I have. Shadowfall abd Battlefield interest me but I wouldn't want to rick getting too hard of a game.

    BF4 is a little hard, COD would likely be the easiest of them all. COD is many times easier to control as well. also it's the most popular of them all. supposed to be for mainstream/casual players.

    Blacklight Retribution (it's F2P). Doesn't get much simpler than that. A point and shoot shooter that you only need to have good reflexes to play. I don't recommend it for being good (it's crap really, IMO), I recommend it for being easy to play.

    lol he thinks Killzone is awesome. yes, he's a beginner. but really though i'm sure it's fun. once you get tired of that, try COD and then BF4 or whatever games are out at that point.

    Having both I prefer Killzone over COD, it's a refreshing change where as COD just feels like the same old same old!

    The difference is that he hasn't played it or other shooters before. CoD has great shooting mechanics, but oversaturation has made it stale.

    COD is a easy pick up and play game. Thats why it is so popular.

    Agreed! I may be a bit biased right now though as I just ifnished KZ recently and really had fun with it.
