Duke Nukem 3D 3DRealms / GT Interactive 1996

Angry aliens invade the earth!...and they like it here. You will find them in pornshops, stripclubs and filmstudios. Duke improved the graphics standard set by Doom with nice effects like earthquakes and hefty explosions. Also the environment was destructable, you could even play pool. It was filled with gags from beginning to end. New features like security cameras, steroids which made you faster and a 'Holo-Duke' which could fool enemies made this game fun. And there were of course lots of cool weapons like the freezer gun (turn an enemy into a frozen statue, then kick them to bits) and the shrinker (make someone little then step on him). The shotgun was as cool as in Doom and the pipebombs were a nice addition. Duke 3D really is fun because of the realistic settings and the ever-present humor. Unfortunately the puzzles still only consisted of finding the right button to press. After you cleared earth from those pesky aliens you can take the fight to the aliens spaceship. Everywhere you will find prisoners and chained women (which you can't free, but you can shoot them). The fact that you could shoot prisoners (and strippers on earth too) caused some commotion with the government and concerned parents. Duke 3D offers full 45 degree views, detailed bitmaps and top shooter gameplay. The only shame is that there aren't many different enemies in the game. With the included Build editor, the internet was soon swamped with new levels which only added to the popularity of the Duke. It set a new standard for gameplay and humor in shooter games.
