System Shock

By Origin

Another twist on the hack and slash Doom paragdim is System Shock, put out by Origin Systems. You're a hacker who performed an illegal hack into Trioptimum Corporation's computer network; but instead of spending the rest of your life in jail, a sleazy executive type hires you to do something even more illegal... hack into SHODAN, the AI for the company's Citadel Station. In exchange, you get a military-grade neural link to do with as you wish. However, as you're sleeping off the discomfort in a 6-month coma, something sinister begins to happen on Citadel.

System Shock is a first-person game with a difference. Not only can you run around the station, but you can also head into Cyberspace, which you have to do in order to complete certain tasks.
