Where most of your time has gone to from 2000 to present
1. GOD OF WAR
In one bold stroke, God of War redefined 3D action gaming with its visceral combat, colossal boss battles, and engrossing story inspired by classic mythology. Another impressive achievement is its outstanding graphics, which squeezed every bit of the PS2’s power.
2. SYSTEM SHOCK 2
Set in a haunted spaceship in the
future, System Shock 2 is a brooding cyberpunk shooter with a deeply integrated role-playing system. It also features the return of Shodan, one of the greatest villains in gaming.
Before, strategy games were mostly terrain-based. But Homeworld’s outer space battles take place in a fully three-dimensional space. Complementing the game’s otherworldly atmosphere is an excellent ambient, electronica soundtrack.
4. HALF-LIFE: COUNTER-STRIKE
What started as a Half-Life
mod has become, to this day, the most popular multiplayer shooter in the world. Counter-Strike pits terrorists and CT operatives using real-world weapons.
