Talking about his picks for the best three FPS games at the moment, Mike chose Valorant, Squad, and Apex Legends. Moreover, he said that he likes various other genres of games such as MMO or RPG. However, due to the response of his fans, he spends the majority of his time playing FPS or BR games.

“Warzone isn’t my type”- Shroud likes FPS games that require skills

A fan recommended Mike to try out the SnD mode in Call of Duty Modern Warfare since it’s fun. Mike laughed at the idea, saying it’s definitely not fun. Talking about FPS games, he said Warzone is not his type. While the game is fun from time to time, Mike doesn’t fancy it. He instead prefers games like Counter-Strike, Valorant, and Apex Legends. According to him, these games require skill.

According to Shroud, games like Call of Duty receive much more attention because of the casual nature of the games. On the other hand, tougher games like Apex and Valorant, which are much more hardcore and challenging, receive much less attention. However, he still feels that Valorant is easier compared to other FPS games. This can be backed up by looking at the number of players playing it, which is much more than other FPS games.

However, close to his verdict, he took a second to talk about his previous comments on Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. He clarified that he was talking about the downfall of the NA scene in CS: GO and not the game as a whole. He agrees that the game is still very popular, and he doesn’t think it’s dying.

According to Shroud, “CS is literally the god game, the best game ever made, fact! Maybe not CS: GO but CS in general as a series.”
