Platform games (also known as platformers) are one of the oldest video game genres. Their main mechanic focuses around maneuvering an avatar to jump between platforms and over different obstacles to progress in the game. Jumps, attacks and all other movements are controlled by the player. Platform games were developed in the early 1980s but popularized in the mid-1990s. The term “platform games” describes titles in which jumping on platforms is considered an integral part of the gameplay. It was established no later than in 1983.
The best and most well-known platform games are Super Mario Bros, Contra, Trine, and Rayman. Most of these franchises already have a cult status among their fans. It’s worth noting that platform games were, at one point, the most popular video game genre.

The latter, albeit much younger, was definitely the more “active” on the market which resulted in many installments in the series. It’s one of the most iconic titles in the FPS genre, with millions of loyal fans across the world.
Quake is a series of first-person shooters, starting with the game of the same name. In first Quake (released in 1996) players must find their way through various maze-like, dark, medieval environments while battling a variety of monsters using a wide array of weapons. Quake II (1997) and Quake 4 (2005) are equally dark but unlike Quake set in the future where humans are in conflict with a cybernetic race known only as the Strogg. The third installment in the series, Quake III Arena (1999), was a multiplayer-focused FPS and a response to the increasingly popular Unreal Tournament game.
Quake games are iconic and even now, after all these years, they can bring a smile on gamer’s face. A title definitely worth trying!Hide
