Duke Nukem 3D
There's nothing else like it and never will be! Well, except maybe the sequel.

What's not to like? The Build engine completely blew DOOM's out of the water with great, for the time, graphics and flexibility. The realistic settings had buildings which actually looked like buildings, tons of destructable items and sectors, and lots of interactivity like the movie theater. The weapons went beyond the tired old shotgun-machinegun-rocketlauncher formula, though the "old faithfuls" were still there. Best of all, the game was FUN, both single and multi-player!
Well, most of the second episode seemed uninspired and too DOOM-like. Also, its very annoying to be squished by an opening door. Monsters are very pixelated close up, even at high resolution settings.
The Bottom Line
If you don't mind dated graphics, and if you do you shouldn't be on this site, Duke 3d is the BEST of the old fashioned 2.5D shooters.
