Ever heard of Wolfenstein 3D? You know, the game that is widely considered to have birthed the FPS genre and help make it the most prevalent type of games today? Well, it’s now officially free to play, no CD or download required.

Bethesda (who now own id software, just to let you know) have realized that it’s Wolfenstein 3D‘s 20th anniversary and have released a browser-based version of the game that is completely free and easy to play. It runs very smoothly and is virtually unchanged from its original iteration. While it’s by no means a beautiful or even complex game these days, it’s still surprisingly fun considering it’s 20 years old, and it’s also interesting to analyze from a design standpoint considering it’s groundbreaking nature at the time.

You can play the game the game that started it all here. Enjoy!
