The headshot raised the bar for gaming combat. Imagine a first person shooter with no location-based damage. Wheres your target? Youre essentially youre just aiming at a blob. This isnt really that difficult, and you could soon find that players who arent particularly great can match you. Where is the capacity for brilliance when the game is so uncomplicated?

Max Payne was out in 2001, The Matrix was 1999.

EDIT: Yes, it did. I knew it., though I'll agree with Phil that Max Payne was the first game to really make it cool.
