F.E.A.R. (or rather, F.E.A.R.: First Encounter Assault Recon, to use its rather histronic full name) is the first first-person-shooter I've played in quite a while, let alone finished. I liked the emphasis on mood and atmosphere over action -- I did my share of firing at shadows in the course of the game. And I certainly didn't miss a crazy final boss battle -- there are plenty of games I've 98% completed, except for some crazy final boss battle. My only complaint was that it seemed a bit short -- I finished it in 5 sessions, none of which was more than 4 hours.
