Shooting games are all about shooting guns. In this category, you'll find a good variety of shooters to get your adrenaline going. You could be shooting at anything, including bottles, targets, and terrorists in the desert. These are a great way to test your reflexes, pass the time and blow off some extra steam at the end of a long day.
Many shooting games are played from a first-person perspective, meaning you see only the aiming reticule or the weapon (or both), as if you were holding it yourself. When you move the mouse, the weapon or reticule will move, allowing you to aim at any target of your choosing. Clicking with the left mouse button usually fires. Some games will have stationary targets, such as a bullseye or mines on the ground, and some will have moving targets, like an object being thrown through the air, animals to hunt, or bad guys that need taken down. The games with moving targets will test your reflexes quite a bit more, as you usually have a time limit to take down all of the targets.
Other shooting games are played from a third-person perspective, where you can see your whole character. There are a few different variations on this. The first is a view from behind the back. You will be aiming and shooting at targets ahead of you in a similar manner to the games played in first-person view. Once again, moving the mouse will likely move the reticule, and clicking will fire. Another is the top-down view, where you see the top of your character's head, and all of the area around him. In some of these games, moving the mouse will have the character aiming toward the mouse pointer, and will likely fire when you click. The character may or may not be able to move around using controls on the keyboard. In other games, using certain keys on the keyboard will move and turn your character. Whichever direction he is facing is the direction he is aiming. A third is side-scrolling, where you move left and right, and shoot in those directions using controls on the keyboard. These may also go into the adventure or platforming category.
Shooting games are very popular among younger players who prefer action-oriented gameplay, but older players can enjoy them, too. They may not be appropriate for small children, as some games that involve shooting at living targets are considered violent, especially if there are blood effects. However, this doesn't mean all of them are violent. Some games in this category will have you shooting at non-living targets, such as glass bottles. This makes them appropriate for players of any age, so parents can rest easy..
So, if you're looking for a good action fix, the shooting game section is the place you want to be. All you have to do is pick a game and get shooting. You may find yourself entertained for hours, just trying to get past that tough level, or perfect your shooting skills.
