Was Blake Stone popular?

I remember playing the balls out of Blake Stone back in the day, but never heard people talk about it. But recently, in the few "old fps" threads that have popped up, it seems that everyone played Blake Stone.

Who is Blake Stone?
You can spend $400 on a console and $400 on a cheap PC, or you can spend $800 to build your own and have the best of both worlds.

I played it, but I didn't know anyone else who'd even heard of it at the time. But I would expect people who post on a video game forum to have played and heard of more games than your average gamer.

It was my dad's favorite game, when I was growing up.

But I've never really heard anyone talk much about it since then.
The sole purpose of this space is to make my post look longer.

Not too many people talked about the Blake Stone series thanks to Doom forcing it into obscurity. Other than my brother, I never knew anyone else who played the games.

There was more than just Blake Stone? Or was it like the episodic nature that most fps had at the time?

It was overshadowed by other shooters (and for good reason, IMO). However, many Apogee fans have probably tried it at some point.

It was fairly obscure due to bigger name games dominating. I played it once at a friends house.
