Marathon 2: Durandal (I keep forgetting about the series' existence, even though I was inspired enough to make a map for it)
Hexen (throwing magical crap at your enemies should count, I think)
Clive Barker's Undying (a rich and unique atmosphere, but shows its cross-platform roots, even though the console version was never actually released)
RAGE (a flawed gem)
Clive Barker's Jericho (barely playable unless you're good at it; compensates by being evil and oppressive)
Dark Salvation (I'm gonna be a hipster here, and pretend that I liked how retardedly unforgiving this amateur mod of a game is)

Outcast wasn't actually first person. My bad. Scratch it and put Deus Ex 2 after SS:TFE.
The suffering and suffering 2 were underrated, but good
5. Return to Castle Wolfenstein
Those are the ones I've played through several times, way more than twice. After that it's hard for me to pick any stand outs, too many good ones to list.
Editing The First Post.
Was lying awake in the night (a bad habit my brain should really stop), trying to find a good cut-off point for "FPS", and deciding that Vermintide and Dark Messiah should be allowed. So they're in but the cut-off is before Skyrim which although is quite playable as an FP with a lot of S, there's too much focus on other stuff. And ofc Thief is out due to definite focus on not S.
Also added enouragment to stick to 10, because Mugwump's post made my monitor go all funny.
Interesting to see how many people who have Quake very high also have Unreal very high, for all of Unreal's "at-the-time" beauty and less fun physics, I think the directness of the monster blasting is more comparable to Quake than first appearances suggest.
Nice to be reminded of Undying, what a hidden gem that was.
If I had more space then Bioshock, Bioshock Infinite, Undying, UT, Rage, Wheel Of Time, Dark Messiah, Titanfall 2, in fact any of those could go in my 9/10 spots.
4) Thief DP
6) Wolfenstein 2009
8) Quest for glory series
9) Vampire: The Masquerade � Bloodlines
11)The Wheel of time
i completely missed an FPS term. So Quest for glory series don't belong to this list
Ur list is now:
1) Wolfenstein 2009
3)The Wheel of time
Honourary mentions: Half Life2, Heretic/Hexen
Unreal Was Great
But UT is the game that really sunk it's claws into me
1) System Shock
3) Halo 2
4) Half-Life 2
5) Battlefield 2142
6) Delta Force
Will There Be A Tally At The End Of This, Like A Poll?
If That's The Case
my list would be very different. I was just adding titles I didn't see already mentioned.
What Killpixel Said
Though it wouldn't be that different.
Off The Top
Doom engine games(all of them)
The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall
Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II
The Elder Scroll I: Arena
System Shock 2
Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear
Sure the Elder Scrolls games are role playing, but very 1st person hacking and slashing with lots of spell and projectile firing.
If we're including Elder Scrolls games, then Oblivion gets to be in my top 3 for sure.
Skyrim was too similar to Oblivion to have any impact on me, and I could never really get into Morrowind for some reason.
