After the alternate history Wolfenstein 3D, there was Doom. id Software produced the shareware video game Doom, which I originally got on a few floppy disks from a friend, as a next-generation first person shooter. It still relied on sprite technology, but it produced a more intense game experience than Wolfenstein. It combines mytho-Satanic imagery with an otherworldly environment that you as the human protagonist has to survive.
