The SNES has only just launched, and the first-person shooter genre wasn't really a thing. Back then, the idea of walking around and shooting stuff in first freakin' person was totally unheard of, so--yeah--Wolfenstein made one hell of a splash.
With the release of Wolfenstein: The New Order mere weeks away, we decided to take this opportunity to look back at how the franchise has grown and evolved in a visual sense. What started with 3D went on to games like Return to Castle Wolfenstein and 2009 reboot; few franchises have lasted this long, and it's a great way to see exactly how far gaming has come since id first sent us on a one-way trip to Castle Wolfenstein."
