Hexen: Edge Of Chaos Gets Its Magic In Your Doom III

Most of you old timers know this, but for those of you who weren’t gaming during the Clinton Administration, Hexen is one of the earliest 3D FPS games – it came out the same month as Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island, which means it’s older than the Pentium Pro1. Based on a modified version of the Doom engine, it eshewed the normal guns Guns GUNS model that has forever typified the FPS genre, in favor of magic.
