what is the name of an early first-person shooter where in one stage you must race against the clock and a good way to save time is by crossing a huge grass field, only, when you cross it you get killed by a huge serpent monster?

I want to say its Duke Nukem but it has been a very, very long time since I've played it and I've played a whole bunch of FPS games since.

There's no scene like that in DN3D.

This reminds me vaguely of a scene from Space Quest 3, which is an adventure game, not a shooter. You land on a planet and if you turn left off the bat you get gobbled. Later on that planet there is a race, because a terminator-style robot shows up and you have to outrun him. Just a thought.

Catacomb Abyss?
Chasm: The Rift?

Just throwing a few out there in case anything triggers your memory.

Killing Time? (It had loads of strange monsters - including a chef who tried to stab you with a knife all the time)

It's an RPG, but if you try to run across a grass field early in Final Fantasy 7, you are caught by a giant serpent called a Midgar Zolom. It can technically be defeated but will kill most players. You can out run it with a chocobo. Afterwards, you see one impaled by the enemy you are tracking, Sephiroth. The point is to show you just how strong Sephiroth is.
