The Best FPS's of the 90s

GOGmix by Xonos83's avatarXonos83 1vote

Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold

Xonos83's rating:
250

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.

Blake Stone: Planet Strike

Xonos83's rating:
250

Xonos83 says: This expansion was a no-brainer for me, albeit with less character than the original.

Duke Nukem 3D Atomic Edition

Xonos83's rating:
250

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!

Rise of the Triad: Dark War

Xonos83's rating:
250

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.

Shadow Warrior Classic Complete

Xonos83's rating:
250

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??

System Shock™ 2

Xonos83's rating:
250

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.

Serious Sam: The First Encounter

Xonos83's rating:
250

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!

Blood: One Unit Whole Blood

Xonos83's rating:
250

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!

Catacombs Pack

Xonos83's rating:
250

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!

Redneck Rampage Collection

Xonos83's rating:
250

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.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six®

Xonos83's rating:
250

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.

Unreal Gold

Xonos83's rating:
250

Xonos83 says: What can I say....a masterpiece. Unreal brought AAA graphics, music and mechanics to the table and reinvented the Arena shooter. With a deep story, an online counterpart with bots and a weapon set that still dominates today, this game holds its own!

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.
