Series can be considered one entity if all of the following are satisfied..
With a "series of game" is clear ..
Write double answer
If I had to pick one game
What's your favorite FPS game from each year of the '90s?
(the best of the best) created in the 90s, I would choose the "Marathon".
More precisely, this trilogy..
"Marathon 2: Durandal" (1995)
"Marathon Infinity" (1996)
The reason is simple - a perfect combination of plot and dynamics. But it's important that the story is not just text at the beginning of the episode or text instructions . The plot of the "Marathon" is a scientific fiction novel.. interactive book for a player. Dynamics (action) - in the game a lot of episodes that resemble a sports arena (deathmatch). Along with this - "Marathon" is a great level design, many of which are nonlinear. And of course the "Marathon" is a series of innovations - mouse overview for fire weapons, reloading weapons, mass shootings involving non-player character, swimming under water and the presence of realism: under water gun did not work, a variety of quests in the game (no color keys and doors), for some types of weapons involved the possibility alternate shot, radar for the observation of the enemy, terminals to save the game and recharge protection and oxygen.. Add to this the interesting modes for online play..
Some of the above was in earlier games (radar and terminals for health). Other gameplay elements first appeared. In any case - "Marathon" was the first game that connected all of the most great ideas in the genre First-person shooter (FPS).Maybe someone would be interested..
Continued (development) official story trilogy in subsequent episodes ..
... and it's not all additional episodes. If choose a few games 90s
.. there were a lot .. Wolfenstein 3D, SoD, DooM I&II, Rise of the Triad, Descent and Witchaven (although the two games the result of mixing genres..)
, Star Wars: Dark Forces, Duke Nukem 3D, Blood, Shadow Warrior, Redneck Rampage, Quake I&II&III, Half Life, Outlaws, Unreal and Unreal Tournament and many others..
In general, it seems to me that the 90s were a golden age for the genre FPS.
And if you choose the minimum name, then ..
"Wolfenstein 3D" (1992)- the first FPS ..
"Rise of the Triad" (1994) - the first and probably last FPS-transformer that combines arcade and shooter genre
"Marathon" (1994/1996)- about this game I said .. above
"Unreal" (1998) - beautiful game world, excellent level's, a good story .. in this game interesting to travel
"Unreal Tournament" (1999) - best game for online battles and single player
