I started with Wolfenstein 3-D on the fps front. I thought it was amazing. I remember playing the beta of DOOM in a computer store here in Houston. That blew me out of the water. It was like Wolfenstein with added spook factor - the fact you could have some areas that were darker than others really helped. Add that to wavetable sound for the background music, and...my goodness.
I...must admit that I acquired the full game in a shameful way. I downloaded it - the whole thing - from a BBS over a 2400 baud modem. I'm not kidding.
I played through DOOM recently - Played through the original DOOM with the added 4th episode. It was fun to go through it again, but it didn't feel at all like it did in 1993.
That whole Wolfenstein 3D era was a great time. I was big into Wolfenstein 3D, Blake Stone, and a little bit of Rise of the Triad. Oddly enough, after Doom and Duke Nukem, I started to lose interest in the genre and never really grew with it. I did love Goldeneye on the N64 though and started to rekindle my interest in the genre with Halo on the original Xbox.
