Orcs and Elves is a turn-based mobile RPG. It was released in 2006 and a year later ported to Nintendo DS. It tells the story of an Elf named Elli, who needs to save a Dwarf town, occupied by cruel Orcs. The mobile version of the game was warmly received by the community that praised its atmoshere and combat mechanics. However, the later Nintendo port was branded too easy and disappointing.

This game wasn’t the biggest fail in history of id Software: it got high scores from critics (average 80 on Metacritic), though players didn't meet Rage with such warm response. There were a lot of complaints about the lack of checkpoints, bugs, a weak crafting system and a poor level design. In the end, John Carmack even apologized for Rage's "inexcusable" PC release.

Doom II: Hell on Earth was released in 1994. Instead of doing something dramatically new with the game, the developers focused on improving what the original game had to offer. They added larger levels, monster variety and new weapons. As a result, the game became the United States' highest-selling computer title of 1994. It was banned in some countries for its graphic content.

Doom is a reboot of the original game, released back in 1993. You are to kill monsters from Hell that were accidentally found on Mars during the colonization. The gameplay returns to a faster pace with more open-ended levels, than it was in Doom 3. 

The game received positive response from the community that praised its capturing the spirit of the classic Doom games and first-person shooters of the 1990s. However, the multiplayer mode wasn't so good and safisfying.

With Doom 3 the developers decided to step away from their traditional approach to the franchise. The game is more of a survival horror than an FPS. In fact, it's the first reboot of the series that totally ignores the events of the previous games. 

Doom 3 became a huge success both critically and commercially. The game sold more than 3.5 million copies and became the most successful id Software title.

Quake III Arena became the first Quake title to exclude a traditional single player to focus on multiplayer action. The game was minimalistic; players had almost no need to use items and features. Instead the game offered wide customization abilities, such as field of view, texture detail and enemy model.

The game was decribed as fast and enjoyable by critics. Arena was also praised for the fun level designs, great-looking textures, impressive special effects and weapons sounds.

Wolfenstein 3D was one of the first 3D FPS. Greatly inspired by the 1981 game Castle Wolfenstein, it was released in 1992. The developers - John Romero, Tom Hall and John Carmack decided to make something different from the games that were currently on the market. Together they created a fast and violent title that forever went down in history as the influencer of a whole genre. While the company never returned to the game, it released the source code for free in 1995, and more Wolfenstein games were made by other developers.

The Quake series started in 1996, after the huge success of Doom. This game made online multiplayer increasingly common. Quake contained a lot of features that inspired other developers. For example, the gameplay let the player to maneuver through the game in different ways, using bunny hopping or strafe jumping and rocket jumping. Quake can also be heavily modified.

The PC version of Quake was highly acclaimed by the community - 94/100 on Metacritic. Everyone praised its atmosphere, realistic 3D graphics and sound design.

Doom is one of the most influential video games in history. It helped to pioneer the now-ubiquitous first-person shooter. It also popularized immersive 3D graphics, multiplayer gaming, and support for customized additions and modifications. However, the game became contoversial because of its mature content, satanic imagery and graphic violence.

Even the criticized aspects didn't stop Doom from being a commercial success. The game sold approximately 2-3 million physical copies and 1.5 million copies more as the shareware edition in 6 years after the release.
