Duke nukem 3d was not a 3d game it was more like 2.5d but far from 3d.
Enemies, objects in game etc were normal 2d pictures not 3d polygons.
Quake 1 was first "trully" 3d game.

Not even close. Quake did not come out until 1996, but was preceded by Virtua Racing and Comanche, in 1992. And both of those were preceded by Hard Drivin', as far back as 1989. And even that was preceded by wireframe, vector 3D games like Tempest (or almost every game that ever shipped on the Vectrex game console) going all the way back to 1980.

But for the first 3D FPS that used polygons instead of sprites or voxels to render the 3D effect, then yes, it is Quake.

Depends on what you mean by 3D, there were "trully" 3D games before Quake. Quake was the first using poylgons.


Edit: Damn you FreeSwag

shoot, some games that are coming out still use some sprite based stuff.

Seems like I've been waiting forever to see who voiced Duke.
I'm so relieved!

Corporation should be remembered, when talking about 3D first-person shooter games.

I love these videos about the history of development. The Volition stuff was equally great.

Deep thought...

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog I mean, compare the clunky, awkwards gloo gun/wrench combo with the "one/two punch" of bioshock. Its night and day the level of quality on display. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: i found it boring. And the combat was too shitty to handle the fast small mimics particularly well. It just isn't a very well done game. Which sucks. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: True but still Prey could be great. I definitely enjoyed that first hour and I really liked the Mimic aspect, it sure is different. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: dishonored 2 was amazing. You can tell its a different team than prey. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Did anyone play Dishonored 2 here? I'm enjoying the game more and more and that time piece was awesome! I love that kind of stuff in gaming. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I really enjoyed the demo and I want to play more. Agreed about music and Bethesda has acknowledged it as an issue. Fixed at launch. (1 Hour ago)
