    I was watching the movie DOOM the other day and it brought back "pleasant" memories of playing the game, (esp the BFG). That's when i got the idea of asking this question:

    Which game do you consider to be the "Godfather" of fps?

    I have 2 in mind:
    Wolfenstein 3d
    Doom :)

    Wolfenstein was obviously the first.

    Doom added cool lighting

    Quake 1 was the first REAL 3d fps. Add in the open gl patch, and it was the first hardware accelerated REAL 3d fps.

    So, I'd say Wolfenstein and Doom were rudimentry, then Quake is the godfather. The one that really put it on the map.

    Wolf 3D is the grandaddy
    Doom made the FPS a phenomenon
    Quake revolutionized it
    Half Life perfected it

    Wolfenstein3D all the way.

    and btw if you own a symbian phone you can play it on yer cell, you need the pc shareware or full version of the game.
