Wait, what?

 

Wolfenstein 3D was not the first Wolfenstein game???!!!

 

My mind is blown. I've been living a lie for the last 30 years.

Yeah, Wolfenstein 3D was loosely based on Castle Wolfenstein, thematically more than anything else. Funnily enough, it can reasonably be argued that the primary legacy of Castle is the Metal Gear series, as the first games were heavily mechanically influenced by Castle's early attempt at 2D stealth gameplay.

 

Castle Wolfenstein: the game that indirectly led to the launch of both the first-person-shooter genre and Hideo Kojima's career. Not bad going!

This and to blow your mind further @dug, the '3' in 'Wolfenstein 3D' is not just because of the additional dimension - it's because it's the actual 3rd game in the series. Wolfenstein 3.

 

Also, the game is actually called 'Wolfenstain' but for some reason everyone remembers it as Wolfenstein. It's named after the historical Wolfenstain Schloss (Castle Wolfenstain) in Germany.
