"Robotron... is the closest classic arcade game to the first-person action game genre. That embodies the spirit of the shooter cos it's all constant action, non-stop action, and it's just damn fun. It's amazing that I remember playing that back when I was a kid and thinking how hard it was, as far as eye-to-hand co-ordination. And nowadays, it's funny, I guess because of the mouse-playing in Quake and Doom and stuff, that kind of configuration just seems totally natural."
