I don't know how much people on this forum know about Serious Sam franchise games, but I am the big fun and it is one of the my favorite games, especially because it was set in one of it's part in ancient Egypt.

Short plot about a game:

You take a role of Sam 'Serious' Stone, a one of the greatest Earth heroes and fighter for Earth Defense force, to fight the horde of evil minions (called Mental) from outer space who invaded Earth and occupied it. The main thing of the franchise is the alien object called "Time-Lock" which was left by Sirians (a race of humanoids from planet located in Sirius solar system), who was technologically developed and visited Egypt during ancient times. They left many traces of their presence, as it "Time-Lock" which is the device that allow one man to travel through time. The Serious Sam franchise have 4 parts:

Serious Sam - The First Encounter
Set in Egypt in 1390. B.C. where Serious Sam is transported from future to find transmitter and contact Sirians for help, because of Mental invasion which happened in the future, so they can help him in stop Mental forces. Through this game he pass trough many know places in Ancient Egypt as are Hatshepsut Temple, Thebes, Karnak, Luxor, Valley of the kings and etc. and at the end have final battle in front of Great pyramid in Giza.

Serious Sam - The Second Encounter
Set in Mexico in same time as First Encounter, and the in Mesopotamia and at the end at the Frozen North (Poland).

Serious Sam 2
Set in future in the five planets of the Sirius Solar system.

and the third, Serious Sam 3 BFE (before first encounter), and for me most impressive part of the game franchise because it is, beside excellent graphics and realism, set in modern Egypt with all temples, tombs and ancient Egypt sites very realistically presented. As its name said, this part of the game present events before Serious Sam is sent trough time in 1390 B.C. The main quest in the game, beside destroying Mental alien forces, is to activate Time-Lock. The switches for Time-Lock are dispersed all over ancient Egypt and the Serious Sam must activate it. I will not say more, and here are some pictures from the actual game.

P.S. What I like the most of the Serious Game franchise is the alternative history for some places and buildings in Egypt which are have connection with Sirius star and so called "Sirians".
