10 Most Influential First-Person Shooters Of All Time

MMGN.com writes: While this generation of gaming has been utterly dominated by first-person shooters, you may find it hard to believe that on the whole, it has been rather stale in terms of innovation. While many have featured epic stories, memorable characters of blazing online features, will they be strong enough to hold any real influence on the next generation of shooters? (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Crysis, Culture, Doom II: Hell on Earth, PC, PS3, Quake III Arena, Wii, Wolfenstein 3D, Xbox 360)

DOOM #1 before reading.

They said Doom 2, but honestly, it's gotta be the original. Specifically, episode 1. The map design in KDITD is THE classical example of mapping done right.

Plus, Quake was HUGELY influential, it practically dragged the entire PC games industry kicking and screaming into the realm of fully 3D gameplay. Plus, its mod scene fostered Team Fortress, birthing class-based multiplayer FPS gaming, but also popularized CTF (Threewave) and multiplayer FPS gaming in general, like none before it. I'd say it deserves a spot more than Q3A.

Plus, UT is more influential that Unreal. After all, there'd be no Domination game-types without UT.
