2016 has been the year of the first person shooter. We've had some absolute monsters, including Titanfall 2, Battlefield 1, Overwatch, Infinite Warfare and, of course, DOOM. A number have already fallen in the 12 Games of Christmas battle, and now it's the turn of Battlefield 1 and DOOM to decide which is the best FPS of 2016. There can be only one winner in the ultimate shooter showdown - have your say on what the best shooter was this year. Remember as well, one lucky winner who tweets support will be able to choose from any one of the 12 Games of Christmas in our free game giveaway.

12 Games of Christmas Rules

In celebration of the most festive time of the year, we thought there was no better way to salute some of 2016's goliath's in gaming than a good old-fashioned bar-brawl. A battle Royale filled with broken noses and bloodied brows, red is the colour of Christmas after all. 12 of this year's most memorable titles will be going head to head in a series of knockout rounds over the next 9 days, and in the words of Highlander, there can be only one.

On top of that, to add the brandy to the Christmas pudding, we'll also be giving one winner a game of their choice from the 12 entries on December 24th. Perfect for a spot of gaming in the holidays. All you have to do to win a copy of that game is tweet your support for any game in the 12 Games of Christmas, using the links provided in each article, and we'll pick a winner out of all of the tweets after the final bout. Multiple tweets for different games will count as additional entries to the competition. Tweeting is separate from the poll and does not count as a vote in the 12 Games of Christmas.

How the community voting works

Each day at 18:00 GMT two titles will battle each other with the victor being decided the next day at 17:00 GMT. Whichever title receives the most votes in the poll wins, and will then go through to the next round. 12 games in total will be battling away, and the first six rounds will take place from today and over the next five days - one battle per day. The six games that win will make it through to the semi-finals, where three further 1v1 fights will take place. The winners of these three battles will then make it to the *cough* three-way final to decide the ultimate game this Christmas.

The winner of this knockout competition is Game Debate's favourite choice of game to be played this Christmas, who will triumphantly reign over us all the way into next year.

Each bout will last 23 hours, and the winner is whichever game receives the most votes in the poll, which can be found towards the bottom of each article.

Looks Like Doom's journey has suffered an instant Doom as Battlefield conquers the Battlefield and marches on to the final

DOOM without a contest for me. BF1 is still the same old with a new skin slapped on it while DOOM was a fresh breath of FPS air that some of us have needed for a decade now!


But I know BF1 will win, sadly, it's a different generation of gamers in 2016 and shiny fake medal pop-ups for each kill to make the player feel better and the ability to call each other "pleb" and verbally question the opponent's sexuality are what's in right now xD

I just couldn't get into doom for some reason. I really enjoy Battlefield 1, even though the last one I played before it was Bad Company 2. Different strokes for different folks I guess

While I enjoyed Doom campaign and the multi was equally as good, it just doesn't have the playability to keep me wanting to play again and again.

I could only play this for a couple of hours at a time (at the most) before i got bored. BF1 however, I can practically play for hours and not tire at all. Bayoneting is quite possibly the funniest thing incorporated into a multi-player. BF1 vote

Depends on the taste. BF1 is the same old crap as BF4, BFH, BF3, etc, just churned out with a different skin. The recipe works for many young folk who like getting shiny medals for each FRAG as we call 'em :D


On the other hand, I always preferred the more fast and brutal arena shooters, as I come from the Unreal/Quake generation, so playing DOOM online is what I'd personally pick over Battlefield/COD any day of the week even if my teeth are being pulled out to steer me away from DOOM :D
Can't wait for the new Quake!


It's taste and in 2016 it's a different world to what it used to be.

Doom is great; but you will understand that multiplayer is already dying lost around 40% of its base already. As for BF1 its great online for now who knows what DLC they bring soon. I would suggest if any of you guys win go for BF1 because you can purchase doom USD 15-20 dollars. I myself found doom for 15 dollars at my local walmart

Got to go for Doom for this one. Mainly because that campaign is one the great single player campaigns in recent times! Outstanding game.
