Top 10 Games in Which Americans Save the World

American heroes have completely dominated the world of cinema and video games. From historical characters in steampunk mechs, to secret agents, and marines armed to the teeth, the list of the best heroes from the land of the free has it all.

Wolfenstein (series) hunting down Nazis

WOLFENSTEIN:

  1. Developer: id Software, Raven Software, Machine Games, and others
  2. Publisher: Activision Blizzard, Bethesda Softworks, and others
  3. Genre: FPS
  4. Platform: various
  5. Release: original release in 1992; the series is still active

Let's be honest about one thing saving the world is the most fun when we're saving it from the Nazis. Who doesn't love shooting Nazis? Probably no one especially, when we're doing it in such a cartoonish version of the Third Reich, as the one found in Wolfenstein. Black magic, forbidden technologies, an army of zombies the enemies of B.J. Blazkowicz have been really inventive over the years.

Right Blazkowicz. Although his name sounds typically Polish (which was explained in some of the games), B. J. remains an all-American, elite comando. He is the epitome of heroism, the toughest Navy Seal, squared. If it hadn't been for him, the Earth would have been covered with swastika flags ten times over. Thanks a lot, BJ!

Why is it worth it?

The great majority of these games are simply great shooters that offer easy entertainment. And who doesn't like shooting Nazis?
