Wolfenstein 3D (with Spear of Destiny) is widely considered to be the first true 3D FPS ever. It single handedly kickstarted a generation of id Software greats, and thus influenced just about every FPS we’ve played ever since. Its mazes, shades of gray, and blue hues are burned into the collective gaming memory – plus you get to kill a mechanized Hitler. Classic.
In the early days of FPS gaming, Quake II: Quad Damage was the milestone. In a spot-on review from 1997, GameSpot calls it “the only first-person shooter to render the original Quake entirely obsolete.” It was bigger, better, prettier, and smoother than any clone or predecessor – it also offered one of the most playable, and by far most popular multiplayer experiences of its day.
Quake III: Gold, aka. multiplayer revolution. Despite a controversial removal of the lauded single-player experience the series was known for, Quake III: Arena became a smash-hit and (together with Unreal Tournament) essentially defined arena-style, movement-based competitive gaming for years. The shooter spawned a community that’s been living and breathing to this day.
In B.J. Blazkowicz’s Return to Castle Wolfenstein, another legend is born. A unique, objective-based multiplayer mode saw immense popularity back in the day – and it was actually pretty okay if you’re into that sort of thing.
