Qt3 Classic Game Club: Blood


#1

[Editor’s note: Every two weeks, we’ll pick a classic game to play and discuss. Then the choice of the next game will be made by a randomly selected participant from the current discussion. It’s like a book club, but with videogames. We’d love to have you join us. Register for the forums and hop into the discussion! This week’s choice, by Pod, is Blood.]

I didn't really get into "Blood" all that much. I remember it had some cool weapons, but a very boring color palette. Everything was brown or grey, or red, lots of red. That was the trend with shooter games at the time. "Quake" was huge, but it was so boring in terms of visual appeal. "Doom" was vibrant, you had brown and grey walls and floors, but you also had blues and greens, and reds that weren't just blood. "Duke Nukem 3D" was colorful as well, and not just for the one-liners. I dunno, I disliked the 'realism' aesthetic PC shooter games were about in the '90s.
