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.

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.

    MrWhite Witcher show actually looks good here in this vignette. Henry Cavill seems like a bit of a nerd for the character too, so he could be really good in this (19 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite So you reckon they only started to make RE3 remake after they saw the numbers for the 2nd one? That's even more impressive if so. Bit of a throwback to the old days in fact. (19 Hours ago)
