PC Games that are the basis for creating other games (Part 1)

Naturally, with the introduction of the first graphics chips such as 3DFX cards, and then nVidia Riva, it is possible to significantly increase the performance of computer systems in terms of three-dimensional structural modeling and many games. Play using advanced technology has been continued. For example, the sequel released Quake, Unreal, Doom, etc.

But the main event was the launch of the cult in today’s Half-Life game. It was a real breakthrough. It was this shooter that later served as a prototype to create new developments based on its unique engine.

How not to remember now one of the most popular games called Counter Strike? But it was originally based on a Half-Life engine, and it also had many branches like the Oppting Force and more modern versions. By the way, Half-Life games recently received a second birth.

Moreover, many of the best shooters are no longer a single type of task and involve team actions, and use of online communication technologies, team transfers and strict decentralization in the team itself (which is what the Team Viewer program or technology uses in the RaidCall package).

Best PC shooter: hybrid version

For considering the so-called hybrid version, here it is worth living separately on the technology. The fact that they get the unwritten name due to two main aspects: switching the vision mode (from first person or third person) and switching the game alone, with a team or with the installed bots. Please, with the latest version of the actual Tournament, Quake IV, Far Cry – they all have such mods.

Modern modification of shooters

In addition to all of the above, it’s worth noting that now and, as it is known, the most modern shooters on PC have one special feature: they have several user modes. In particular, this applies to head-to-head games.

For example, you can choose deathmatch, when the battle takes place between only two players in real time. Please, same Quake III: Arena or the fourth part of the actual Tournament designed exclusively for online matches. Although you can use single tasks, but from the perspective of modernity, this turned out to be uninteresting and boring occupation.
