It has really evolved but in terms of genres racing or RPGs have improved more I feel.

I remember sticking in a 3DFX card for the 1st time (1996) - a real super wow time that transformed my gaming then ATI's R300 GPU was released in 2002 and we didn't have to put up with all those jaggies!

Wolfenstein < Doom < Quake < Half-Life < Unreal Tournament < Crysis

Isn't that about it really without digging into the 1001 other FPS games to go about.

< Unreal Tournament < Crysis

That's nearly right, let me add one more important piece...

< Unreal Tournament < Half-Life 2 < Crysis

There, that's better.
caseh  +   1082d ago
Lol, figured I had missed something but yeah that sounds about right:

Wolfenstein < Doom < Quake < Half-Life < Unreal Tournament < Half-Life 2 < Crysis

Revised :D

Quake 2, wow, Its been so long, Ive got fond memories of that game

What was the Star Wars game at the beginning? dont think ive played that one
RankFTW  +   1082d ago
Quake 2 is one of the greatest games ever, played that game hardcore back in the day. The Star Wars game was a Doom 2 mod I believe.

Star Wars: Dark Forces

Where did all the color go?

Killzone 2 is the best looking FPS game i've ever played !
RankFTW  +   1082d ago
Then you need to get yourself a PC!
MrDead  +   1082d ago
Awesome, it has Project IGI in the vid.
TechnicianTed  +   1082d ago
Yeah that was a great game for its time. One of the first fps games to give you very large areas to take advantage of. Although I remember it having some excessive spawning in places, which is one of my pet hates when it comes to games.
MrDead  +   1082d ago
I remember IGI and Delta Force Land Warrior taking up a lot of my free time.
Vladplaya  +   1082d ago
Return To Castle Wolfenstein, still one of the best FPS games ever made.
Pozzle  +   1082d ago
Is it just me, or were FPS games much more creative back in the day?
chak_  +   1081d ago
uh?

You had destruction? You had nano suit? you had realism? You had whole landscape (arma)?

No, clearly no. Finding the blue key to open the blue door in a maze filled with monster wasn't imaginative.
