1. DOOM - PC Games
The all-time classic! DOOM was so popular when it was first released in 1993 as shareware that it crashed the server it was originally available for download from. With great music and an eerie atmosphere, as well as indefinite re-play value in both single and multiple player mode, this game stands the test of time!

2. Wolfenstein 3D - PC Games
A year before DOOM, there was Wolfenstein 3D, a game that many credit as the title that popularized the FPS genre. Released in 1992, the plot involves the escape of American solider William "B.J." Blazkowicz from the Nazis (and their guard dogs). Will you find your way out of the dungeon? Play it and find out!

3. Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold - PC Games
If you have never heard of Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold, just think Wolfenstein 3D...in space! In this title from 1993, you play as Blake Stone, a British Intelligence agent in the year 2140 who is on a mission to stop the evil Dr. Pyrus Goldfire from taking over Earth! Several levels of aliens and mutants await you in this exciting game.

4. Duke Nukem 3D - PC Games
Following two side-scrolling installments, the Duke Nukem series was overhauled in 1996 with the release of Duke Nukem 3D. Featuring a high level of interactivity between the player and the environment, some of which caused a bit of controversy, this title became very popular with the gaming community. The game is full of monsters and plenty of other cool stuff to discover, so check it out!

5. Rise of the Triad: The HUNT Begins (Sharewar... - PC Games
Originally intended to be a sequel to Wolfenstein 3D, 1994's Rise of the Triad earns a spot on this list as a game that stands just as well as an independent title. With five playable main characters to choose from, each with their own attributes and benefits, this game is one to experience first-hand! Although this title is not as widely known as other FPS games, it deserves a spot on this list.



A list of classic PC games in the first-person shoot (FPS) genre.

So far, this list is simply a compilation of the games I've play, so please feel free to suggest additional titles!

Nice list, there are other classics out there, but that's a loose definition. Serious Sam titles are considered classic, so are the Marathon games, Quake, and even the first Half-Life. Is there a time period limit for how far you want to go? IMO opinion, classics are now any games prior to 2000.
