7. Wolfenstein: The New Order

Wolfenstein: The New Order Campaign Gameplay

Wolfenstein’s heritage is not that far removed from DOOM, both being considered the pioneers of first-person shooters in the early 90’s. Similarly, the Wolfenstein series also experienced a critically-acclaimed reboot with the release of Wolfenstein: The New Order in 2014.

Beginning during the final days of World War II, you find yourself in the combat boots of B.J. Blazkowicz, who’s on a mission to take down a twisted Nazi bigwig known as ‘Deathshead’. Things of course don’t go according to plan, and B.J. ends up adrift and unconscious. Fast-forward 20 or so years and he wakes up in a hospital only to find that history took a turn for the worse: the Nazi’s won the war.

What follows is a fantastic story of revenge, heroism, and terror, framed around a decidedly old-school approach to gunplay. Health doesn’t regenerate, you’ve gotta pick up medkits—but on the flip-side if you feel like dual-wielding massive shotguns, go for it! It’s fast, explosive, and did an awesome job of reminding people about the glorious days of the 90’s shooter and the gameplay qualities that were taken for granted. It has also been followed up with a fantastic sequel: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.

Good doggy: Wolfenstein sees you fighting not only malicious Nazi's, but also terrifying bio-mechanical abominations.

Different kind of demon: amongst the brutal and bombastic combat is a fleshed-out cast of characters—some loveable, and some of the most despicable beings you can possibly imagine.
