The only modern one that comes to mind is Serious Sam (Oh, and Duke 3D ).

I'm looking fwd to the new ROTT. Looks like awesome mindless fun.

Serious Sam was amazing, and even more so co-op. Something about blasting seemingly endless waves of challenging enemies is exhilarating. I don't think modern shooters are really too far from that concept. It's the shield/regen mechanic that ruins it for me. In the old school shooters, the damage you take is the damage you have to deal with until you can find some medkits. There was no hiding in the corner to turn your god mode back on; you were forced to face the unknown and use your noggin to survive. Oh, and surely their design will discourage saving mid-level, and it won't have "checkpoints".

Anyway, looks like the new ROTT will deliver!
