Gods of Gaming - 1

In the past, there have been games which have been a landmark in the journey of games from the 2D scrollers to the virtual worlds that they are today. These games created a benchmark for the quality and playability of all other games that followed.

Wolfenstein 3D: Wolfenstein 3D is a game commonly revered to be the turning point in the action/shooter genres of computer gaming. In Wolfenstein 3D, the player is an American soldier attempting to escape from the brutal Nazi stronghold. He starts out with a handgun and later gets such lethal guns like the Uzi and others. Armed guards, attack guards, are just some of the few enemies the unknown and unnamed soldier faces before he sees the light of the day. The building has a number of hidden rooms containing various treasures, food supplies, and medical kits, as well as three different guns and ammunition. The game had a very thin storyline and the single sentence story get out alive had the soldier eliminating a flurry of foot soldiers, flesh hungry blood hounds and the legendary mission boss.

Doom: Doom further strengthened the place of 3D games after Wolf. Doom was also one of the first games to have a story line of a soldier trapped in an alien land, who had to wade through the blood of aliens to return home. Though Doom and Wolf would be considered as similar FPS today, (both even had same blonde haired heroes), both games had their own dedicated player crowd. Also, they were different from each other as far as the details were concerned.
