The Lazygamer Awards 2014 – Best Shooter

2 min read


I don’t know about you guys, but I like to solve my arguments with guns. Whether it’s deciding between the existentialism philosophies of Kierkegaard or Nietzsche by firing off a few Magnum rounds or asking for directions with an AK-47, guns are my preferred dialect. And this year, there were plenty of shooters that were speaking my language. But our pew-pewer of the year was a clear favourite.

And the winner is…Far Cry 4!

Far Cry 3 was a decent game, but one that felt lacking in several areas. It was by no means a bad game, but it wasn’t exactly truly excellent either. Far Cry 4 however, thankfully was. Taking the Far Cry 3 foundation and laying a new slab of improved gameplay cement over it, Far Cry 4 was more than just a mere upgrade or a re-skinned Far Cry 3.5.

Ubisoft found the necessary balance between the new and the familiar, as the land of Kyrat was home to escalating battles, a new sense of verticality and a seamless co-op experience that shared the bullets and fun. Whether you wanted to go in guns blazing or sneak around in the shadows, Far Cry 4 had something for everyone. It’s also the only game this year that allowed you to rush an enemy camp while riding an elephant, which is winning material to us.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
