Descent

I believe that Wolf3d created the FPS, although there were other first person games out before that even.

But yes, the original Doom made the genre extremely popular.

Hmm. Warcraft is good. Doom is good but you've already got that. I never understood the Commander Keen games though. Just really boring platforming if you ask me. Of course it took me forever to get them to work on my computer so that kind of took the fun out of them in the end.

Yeah, I love old DOS shooters, they're incredible. I was addicted to Wolfenstein, ROTT, and Blake Stone when I was a kid.

Just wondering, has anyone here ever play Rise of the Triad? Best DOS game ever <3


Oh yeah, I forgot to add that.

I found the freeware version of it in my Duke Nukem 3d files back in the day.

^^^^^ I remember Gorillas. I used to play that when I was in the army. Lots of fun when we should have been working.

If you can play music with enthusiasm and an honest effort, then no matter how flawed, noisy and unclean the music is, you are a musician. If you play just to be the best, you are not a musician, nor are you worthy of any musician's recognition. - me

I was a big Descent player back in the day . I still break out the ol' Descent II CD's every once and a while.
If you could blow up the world with a flick of a switch,
Would you do it?

If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich,
Would you do it?
