Man, remember when games like this actually required computers that could handle them? Now, all you need to play classics like Wolfenstein 3D is a browser and a keyboard. The not-so-timeless classic is officially 20 years old, and to celebrate, creator id Software and publisher Bethesda Softworks have made the game free-to-play on Mac and PC browsers.

All you need to do is head to the Wolfenstein 3D Facebook page, click the link and enter your birth date to play the game. But for those used to pwning noobs in Call of Duty, aiming head shots with their mouse and keyboard, the controls in Wolfenstein 3D provide a steep learning curve. Prepare to unlearn almost everything you know about shooter games for a chance to respect their granddaddy.

For one, there are no mouse controls for this browser version of Wolfenstein--just the keyboard. This is how shooters were done back in the day, so deal with it. Bethesda has also opted to offer Wolfenstein 3D Classic Platinum on iOS for the fine price of free today in honor of the legendary game that sparked a decades-long digital blood lust. No, thank you, Wolfenstein 3D.
