Doom 3 – BFG Edition

In the 1990’s Doom became wildly popular. It was a groundbreaking game which, arguably, made the First-Person-Shooter (FPS) genre the powerhouse it is today.

A few years later Doom 2 was released, and the fans of the first installment raved. We just couldn’t get enough, and Doom’s spot in gaming history was secured.

Doom 3 was released, and it was so far ahead of its time, that many Doom fans just didn’t own PC’s powerful enough to run the game, so many of us missed out on this great title.

Now, however, the BFG Edition has been released. It is a collection of Doom games and add-ons that are enhanced and optimized for consoles such as the popular Xbox 360. The BFG Edition is available for PC’s as well.

This package includes Doom 1, Doom 2, Doom 3, the “Resurrection of Evil” expansion, as well as the “Lost Missions”.

For older gamers who would like to experience the nostalgia by playing Doom 1 and 2 again, as well as those who missed out on Doom 3, this would make a fantastic gift.

Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3 is another game in the First-Person-Shooter genre, and at the time of writing this article, it has not yet been released. It can, however, be pre-ordered, as its release date is in the near future.

I have personally played through this game’s predecessor – Far Cry 2 – several times, and I thought it was awesome. The level of detail in graphics, the storyline, and every other aspect of Far Cry 2 was astounding.

I have seen the trailers, and read all the news I could about Far Cry 3, and based on that, as well as my high regard for Far Cry 2, I think it will be an instant classic.

I don’t know any gamer, male or female, that wouldn’t love to receive this game as a gift.
