Video Game: Wolfenstein
Wolfenstein is a long-running series of videogames created first by Muse Software, then followed by id Software, and later by Raven Software. This series is often regarded as the series which launched the First-Person Shooter genre with Wolfenstein 3D, alongside Doom, also by id. So far, the games in the series are the following:

Most of the series follows the adventures of the soldier William "B.J." Blazkowicz in his war against Those Wacky Nazis. Although 3D had a comical side in some aspects, what with a Secret Level featuring the Pac-Man ghosts, later Turn of the Millennium entries have a more "serious" thematic, with heavy emphasis on the supernatural and occult regarding Nazi Germany.
