Doom

Bloodbaths are plentiful in this 1993 game, where the player becomes a space marine armed with various assault rifles to fend off the demons of hell. The game is credited for popularizing the first-person shooter genre and it was also criticized for its use of satanic imagery. (Photo: Courtesy of Doom/ id Software)
