When 3DFX-accelerated graphics hit the scene back in the day, it changed how we played first-person shooters forever. Here are Voodoo Extreme's top 20 first-person shooters of the 3D revolution.
No Halo or Goldeneye?
It was PC only, I think.
halo is on pc.... halo 2 will be this summer
Escape From Butcher Bay was an Xbox title, so how no Halo. I also thought Half Life 2 was better than the original Half Life, decent list though.
Because Halo is not a good FPS compared to ANY of these titles! I've been telling you guys that Halo was behind the times the day it was released. It was just the first FPS to do something right on a console... This is a good list, but i think Unreal 04' deserves the number 1 spot...and where's Battlefield 1942?
Generally speaking, most of these "top 10/20" lists are generally crap. Although this one's pretty decent, some of their choices are quite startling. Prey better than Buthcers Bay? How did Prey even get on that list? At the end of the day, I've play most of these games and although they are good, the game I go back to the most is Halo 1/2 (yes, even Halo 2's crappy campaign).
no, the fact they have something like prey, but not Planet side, or tribes, this llist is horrible.
5 of those games ive actually played...3 i would agree on, the rest were pretty dumb
I love shooters, and before I got into consoles, I was a hardcore PC gamer. I agree with many of those selections, but they missed a couple: The original Quake, and the original Doom. Hell, even though Wolfenstein virtually invented the 3D FPS, the only give props to Return to Castle Wolfenstein (yes, it was good, but the original set the standard). Kudos to them for mentioning Serious Sam (still a blast to play--literally and figuratively), but a demotion for including Prey. Yes, it was pretty good, but Top 20-worthy? No.
can UT not be number 1 ? and no mention of counterstrike pfff
