id Software has some talented developers, that’s the bottom line. They know how to craft a story and pack it full of heart pumping action.
I believe this is their most recent game and it came out on consoles first. It has it all, vehicle combat, immerse first person shooting, a huge game world, and insane graphics. It is an apocalypse type setting game environment. It is set in the future after an asteroid hits earth. That leads to the world becoming a vast, desolate wasteland. If you’ve seen the Mad Max movie that came out recently that will give you an idea of what it is like. Humanity is trying to rebuild and there’s lots of raiders and unruly gangs competing with each other. There is also a totalitarian regime called the Authority that is trying to rule everyone with an iron fist.
I think one of the best parts of RAGE is the graphics. With the sound cranked up and the immersive visuals, it is a blast to play on a nice TV. If you get the PC version, make sure you have a nice pair of headphones. If you get the console version, you’ll want to buy a nice TV for gaming. This website has a good list of TVs that perform well for gamers.
This is a classic. It is one of the best first person shooters of all time. It virtually invented the FPS genre.The plot is simple. Scientists discovered a way to unlock the gates to Hell. You play the lone space marine that takes on the forces of Hell. Not only is it an action game, it also is very spooky. There are many moments you will get frightened when playing this game. Even though the series is so old, it is still a blast to play. If you haven’t played the games, set aside a few evenings and work your way through the heart pounding action. I still remember this being one of the first computer games I ever played. My dad and I played through the game and it is one of my best memories as a kid.
This game was followed by DOOM II in 1994 and DOOM III in 2004. It is getting rebooted and will be released in 2016, published by Bethesda Studios the people who helped with Bioshock and other cool games.
