Doom - I.D. software's Wolfenstein 3D may have heralded the birth of the FPS shooter but it was their second effort that made sure this titan of a genre had truly arrived. Doom swapped Nazis and Castle Wolfenstein for Demons straight from hell invading Mars and it's moons. Clever use of SFX, lighting and management of spaces unite in this revelation of game design. For nearly a decade, no real life shooting could be perpetrated without authorities implicitly blaming the influence of Doom. John D. Carmack and John Romero are widely regarded as living legends due to their involvement with the inception of Doom.
Yep, you heard that right. You're expected to believe THE BEST game on PS4 is a virtually unchanged 35yr old game plonked in a goldfish bowl. Feel free to join me in the rolling of the eyes ritual.

Gamertroll Loves video gaming so much that the temptation to do an especially sarcastic and cynical personal version of it's all-time A-Z has proved too much to resist.
It could just be the most fun ever or equally the most backbreaking task taken on since King James suggested having the Bible translated into Swahili. Time will be the decider because it's happening!
Please feel free to point out, "Oi Gamertroll, you've missed a bit!"

Command and Conquer - A.k.a. C+C, seminal entry into the top-down Real-Time-Strategy (RTS) genre. In the interest of censorship the German version of the game had tiny robots instead humans LOL! etc etc etc.
