Third Person Shooters With Storylines

A number of the stand outs of the shooter genre reside here. You get to see your character in a third person perspective, and then proceed to shoot your way through an adventure. You're often given a story to play through as you take out enemies and complete levels. These games try to give reason to your shooting, and incentive to keep going.
