    First 'true 3d' FPS? Well good people, that would be the oft-forgotten Rise of the Triad which I recall getting from dialling a BBS in the states just before the xmas of my 14th birthday (1994). It had 'true' 3d in that you could have rooms above/below other rooms as well as ELEVEN player multiplayer...

    I recall being somewhat blown away by it at the time.

    NB: Oh yeah I also remember it had the most EPIC god mode cheat of any game. Not only did you become invulnerable, but you could also float at will and shoot 'god-smiting-balls' which insta-gibbed any enemy.

    The original Quake is one of my all time favorite FPS', I did not enjoy any of the sequels aside from Q3A which had a great feel and would have been awesome if had a single player campaign.
    If ID goes back to the form of Quake, Q3A, Doom 1/2 and Wolfenstein the future is looking good.

    Doom was the first one of this kind for me, wolf was there but not quite there. I know Quake was first proper 3D but who doesn't remember these: IDKFA, IDDQD, IDCLIP?
