A three-minute journey through the history of first-person shooters

At first I was expecting that, too. But then it became clear that, despite hitting a bunch of early maze games, it wasn’t exactly going to be a very in-depth journey through the FPS genre. It’d be interesting to see this done with a more complete list of significant FPS milestone games.

I wonder if they stopped playing shooters around 2013, so that’s why it stops there, as it’s really just hitting some of the best-sellers and the video maker’s personal favorites, rather than iconic games. (So it’s missing a bunch of obvious ones from the covered period, like, say, Halo, Team Fortress, Counterstrike or Left 4 Dead, and includes games like Killing Floor.) Though it also may be about picking games that were both in chronological order and extremely similar to each other, for transition purposes.

They missed one of the greats: Labyrinth on the Commodore PET.
