Couldnt agree more. Call of Duty is a huge game but it didnt make itself that way all on its own.

Doom has definitely been a key game in the evolution of FPS

It's the grand father of fps it showed us all that these types of games can work. Doom was unique because it was the first fps that worked outside of our imaginations. Back then, 2d games ruled the scene. Doom introduced a fast paced puzzled 3d violent environment that worked.

Halo was the first console game that showed intelligence. enemies would run away when over powered, the computer sensed when you killed to many friendlies, and attack you. However, if it wasn't for Doom, the FPS wouldn't be as great as it is today. That's my opinion though

I thought Wolfenstein came before Doom.

It did, but it wasn't the be all revolutionary game that doom was. Doom took elements of Wolfeinstine, the bland elements, added more enemies, maze puzzles, and good old fashion mouth watering violence. Doom is much more of a commercial success, and a better game over all.
