The Best FPS's of the 90s1vote I like it
Xonos83 says: As I was transitioning from child to adolescent, this particular shooter defined how important the Sci-Fi aspect was to me. As Wolfenstein 3D was my first delve into the genre, this game really spoke to my inner cyberpunk.
Xonos83 says: This expansion was a no-brainer for me, albeit with less character than the original.
Xonos83 says: As an adolescent, Doom was my FPS of choice upon release. When 3D Realms hit the market with this particular title, it defined the genre of its time, and brought to light one of the funniest, most iconic heroes to ever be seen in a shooter!
Xonos83 says: Made with an improved version of the Wolf3D engine, ROTT was more gritty and more realistic while maintaining a high level of over-the-top explosive action. Weapons are insane, maps are challenging, with more of a 60s gangster feel.
Xonos83 says: Built with the same engine as Duke3D (Build Engine), Shadow Warrior improved on its predecessor with more gore, more story, and more tongue-in-cheek humor with a plethora of wonderful one-liners. Oh...and did I mention Katanas??
Xonos83 says: As one of the later 90s releases, SS2 brought a layer of immersion never seen before. With addition of psychological horror, backtracking, RPG elements and an eerily compelling story, this gave birth to a new breed of FPS.
Xonos83 says: Now this game released in '01, but I wanted to include this title because of how punishing it is, and how this game constantly challenges you in sheer numbers. Maps are huge, environments lush, and a Duke-esque persona that we've all come to love!
Xonos83 says: Another title with the Build engine, Blood is a sheer Halloween gorefest. Blackmagic, voodoo dolls, dynamite and pitchforks, oh my! If Doom and Shadow Warrior had a baby, Blood would most certainly be the result!
Xonos83 says: Catacombs 3D was the first FPS to ever grace our world. Created by id Software, this game paved the way for all others to follow. It is a dungeon crawler with magic and fantasy, but certainly the first 3D game. For nostalgia alone, buy this!
Xonos83 says: I'll say it now, this game is bad. So bad it's good. Another Build engine game, this one focuses more on...well, being a redneck. All the stereotypes are there. With weapons like the Power Keg, the Bowling Ball and the Alien Bra Gun, nuff said.
Xonos83 says: Another late 90s game, this introduced squad-based strategy into the mix, as well as objectives and military progression. Very tough, yet very rewarding once you learn the mechanics. Call of Duty? Say hello to your great great Grandfather.
Treat your GOGmix as your child - name it! ;)
Coming up with a cool and descriptive title should be your first priority. Being original is in your best interest - bet you wanna get lots of nice votes, right? Go all crazy if you want, but be sure to keep it civil!
So, what are the ingredients?
Pick a game that belongs in your GOGmix from the list, or find it by typing something in the text field. Relevance is key here - Earthworm Jim doesn't quite fit the "Sexiest heroines of all time" bill now, does it?
Justify your choice... Or not!
OK, so it's not required, but now that you went through the trouble of adding a game, telling everyone why you did it would be a nice finishing touch. After you're done here, add another game, rinse, repeat.
