Doom

00.jpg
ID Software 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Jaguar, PC (DOS)

Doom was a game changer, and to this day is arguably one of the best FPS games around. Great graphics, 3D environments, complex levels, wide selection of guns, and smooth controls all contribute to the experience that is uniquely ID Software.


Doom 2: Hell on Earth

id Software / cdv Software Entertainment 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

DOOM 2 – my first ego shooter, installed from about 25 (!) 3.5" floppy disks on a 486 PC with 33MHz (with Turbo even 66MHz). The longer the installation took, the more the anticipation grew! It came out in 1994 (by chance also the year I got my first computer) and of course had to be installed right away. Until 2011, it was on the German index of youth-endangering games, but now it received a 16-and-above badge (which young people would want that anyway? ^_^).


Heretic

Raven Software / id Software 1994
Genre: Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Shareware
System: PC

Heretic is Raven Software's third attempt at the fantasy genre. Like the other two its engine borrows quite heavily from another game (in this case Doom), while offering a very unique and creative setting. It is also their final step away from developing the genre standard, namely role playing games, to more uncommon first person shooters.


Quake II

id Software 1997
Genre: Action
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

With a name that promises great things, Quake II can be likened to a ride on your favourite rollercoaster: a high intensity, adrenaline packed assault on the senses. Ultimately though, it leaves the player feeling a little empty.


Wolfenstein 3D

id Software 1992
Genre: Action
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Shareware
System: PC

This is an action game which is commonly seen as the great-grandfather of all ego shooters. It was the year 1992 when this virus, disguised as Shareware, was travelling across busy schoolyards and noisy scene parties, spreading from drive to drive. The shooting orgy by American star programmer John Carmack had an irresistable appeal to the teenagers who hadn't yet been cauterised by mass-produced imitations of this ego perspective, and the extra episodes which were available for sale made John Carmack a millionaire overnight.
