However, after the dust has settled and the popcorn releases have been chewed through, there’ll occasionally be a title that players keep talking about for a little while after. The 2004 PC release of Painkiller, from Polish developer People Can Fly, is one such title. Those who played it found an old school shooter that had the emphasis on shooting lots of evil beings with crazy weapons. And it was a hell of a lot of fun."
