Superhot
Here comes an unorthodox first-person shooter title that follows general aspects of any other FPS but only progresses when player moves, which includes some strategy elements since it allows people to assess their surrounding and then react.

Based upon a very a minimalist type design style by portraying enemies and weapons in red and black respectively, Superhot clearly takes a very innovative take on regular shooter genre and brings about a low-key Matrix experience.

Void Bastards
This one perhaps is the weirdest shooting game you would come across of recent times and it also make you come up with some strategy instead of blatantly shooting anything that moves within derelict spaceships or threaten you.

Instead of being very fancy with its graphics, developers Blue Manchu focused on a framework that puts player on a quest to lead the band of Void Bastards out of Sargasso Nebula and be very thoughtful about how they decide to do that.
