Serious Sam video game franchise

Insane weapons, infinite mobs of kamikaze-like enemies and one seriously cool dude help define this action heavy franchise.


The series began in 2001 with Serious Sam: The First Encounter. At a time when first person shooters started to rely on narrative, and advanced controls like leaning, TFE was a throwback to the simpler days of Doom and Duke Nukem 3D, when shooters were all about big guns, and multiple enemies on screen. The game impressed many with its large open landscapes, not often seen on PC titles, thanks to its proprietary engine.
