6 Amazing Iconic Old School First Person Shooter Games
First-Person genre is hugely popular and widely successful in recent years but it also has a long history of amazingness. There’s something about those pixelated 3D graphics that we still don’t forget. I love the feeling of getting back in the world where it all started from.
BLAST FROM THE PAST!
Today we are counting down best OLD SCHOOL FPS Games.
Where it goes beyond a typical first person shooter is in its story telling. The graphics engine is so realistic that you feel like you are participating in a movie. The character’s facial animation is incredible. It’s done so well, you can get a sense of how the characters are feeling. – Gaming Age
An ephemeral and controversial ending, along with the few issues described above, means that for me, Half-Life 2, while a compelling and highly enjoyable game, falls short of the size of impact that the first title had on the gaming world. – Play.tm
Half-Life 2 has astonished us from start to finish. Valve has done to the FPS genre what restaurants in Chinatown do to ducks; shredded it, smothered it in a delicious sauce of their own devising, and served it up in a way which you simply couldn’t have imagined when looking at them in the pond. – Eurogamer
Halo: Combat Evolved
This immersive sci-fi epic delivers both an expansive story and electrifying first-person combat, making it one of 2001’s best games. – GamePro
It may be the best FPS ever created. Yet from my personal standpoint, Halo is one the greatest games ever created. Ever. – GamingWorld X
The attention to detail blew me away. The graphics are beyond anything I imagined. – PGNx Media
One can’t go without mentioning the fantastic multiplayer mode. Unlike PC shooters, where ambush seems to be the name of the game, GoldenEye concentrates on fast, frantic fun. Everyone can see each other’s screen, and radar is provided for additional assistance, so hiding is a virtual impossibility. – Hot Games
Is Goldeneye 007 another great game by Rare, Is 007 the best first-person shooter on any next-generation system… my answer is HELL YEA! – Gaming Maxx
We can say with a clear conscience that Goldeneye 007 is the best single-player first-person game on any system. – IGN
Wolfenstein 3-D remains fun after all these years. If you’ve never played it, download immediately and see what spawned the first-person shooter genre. – IGN
This is still one of those timeless classics you can enjoy over and over again. It’s just a very simple shooter that takes you back, if you played it back in the day that is. – GamePro
The addition of some sort of tie-in to the new game is nice to see too, for those of you that plan on picking it up. There’s a lot of content in the game too, and for the price you’re paying, I’d say it’s certainly worth checking out, even for long time fans that have already played the game to death. – Gaming Age
Satan, your game has arrived. It spits up blood and pisses vinegar. It sprouts horns from its head like the proud minion of evil that it is. It shoots lightning bolts, for cripes’ sake. It’s a game of pure evil. And even purer entertainment. It’s also the best action game on the planet. – Computer Games Magazine
Quake is fun. Quake is cool. Quake is the best game of its type I have ever seen. Quake won’t let me sleep at night. However, Quake could be better. – Gamezilla!
Quake is not just another 3D shoot-em-up game. It’s a whole new level of gaming. The amazing performance and features of Quake are the future of gaming. Whether you are new to this type of game or you are an old “Doom” hack, you will fall in love with Quake. – Game Revolution
This would have been a ho-hum port of a game that’s already been ported to at least a dozen platforms over the years, but it’s DOOM’s online action which really makes it soar. – AtomicGamer
While other faithful ports of have seen their fair share of action on Live already, Doom trumps them all with its intense action and countless secrets. – Cheat Code Central
