Thief I and II are the absolute best first-person games IMO, but you can't really call them shooters.

Doom
Half-Life
Battlefield 1942
Goldeneye 007
Unreal Tournament

In no order, and the SP ones only:

Serious Sam
Painkiller
Half-Life
Deus Ex
System Shock 2

irony: none of them are from the past decade, with the exception of Sam.

Duke Nukem 3d (when i played it the first time around 1995 or 1996 it seemed really great; though I suspect today I would not find it that interesting).
Half Life (loved it when I played aruond 1998 or 1999; I replayed it around 2005 and found it ok but not quite as special as that first time)
Unreal - wonderful graphics with my 3dfx and a really fun game - though today I hate the unreal engine (not enough environment interaction compared to newer engines)
Far Cry (ruined every FPS since; just like the combination of large open maps; stealth; and environment interaction - I played quake4 afterwards and thought it was plain jane doe )
Enemy Terrioty - first FPS I loved playing multi-player
-
I liked system shock 2 but not sure I could call it an FPS :)

Many people have listed "Goldeneye 007" is that a PC game?

The title just says "FPS" not "PC FPS", not sure it really matters in all honesty.
Yes but the forum says "PC Gaming" not "General Gaming"... just wasn't sure if folks were talking about the N64 game or not... no big deal

Battlefield Bad Company 2 - My romance. Audio was incredible, gameplay was simple and fun. 700 or so hours in this one. I'm finding every game afterwards to have disappointing audio, including BF3. This game was the main reason I upgraded from my e4400 + 8800gtx to what I have now.

Bioshock - Love the story and the mechanics. First game that I really felt like I was a part of. Did a very good job of weaving the story in with the game play.

Quake 2 - single player is still amazing. And long. Very long.

Quake 3 - I train on this to get better aim in different games. I'd say its a definite foundation game for all fps out there.

Yeah, I only have 4.

I need to get the move on with some of the titles listed. Riddick, NOLF, Doom3 are on the list high up. Finishing up Carmageddon 1/Splat pack and PSX RoadRash first :)

Call of Duty (and United Offensive)
Half Life 2
Deus Ex
Unreal Tournament 2004
Stalker Shadow of Chernobyl

Pretty much in that order, though the top two swap places depending on nostalgia. Absolutely loved the single player for HL2, but then I spent MANY hours playing MP COD and COD:UO.

Stalker is a relatively new addition to my list, since I just got into it about three weeks ago. Absolutely hated the game when I first played it, but after forcing myself through the first 30 minutes, I now think it is one of the best FPS's EVAR!1!!!
