The demons came and the marines died. Except one. Your are the last defence against these hell-spawned hordes. Prepare for the most intense mutant-laden, blood-splattered action ever! The texture-mapped virtual world is so real, you don't just play DOOM - you live it.
New-gen **** have got nothing on this legendary FPS game.
All those idiots out there judging a game on graphics have not a clue that Doom is the definition of the FPS genre.
Remember - some of us that care more for the gaming experience than graphics were playing gems like this back when some of you were still a gleam in your mother's eye.
Long live Doom, and long live id Software!
This was not the FIRST first person shooter.
(Check this link: Arcade-museum.com - technically [ it uses an over the shoulder view - chasecam anyone ] that is an FPS, from 1987!)
But Doom is very special.
Doom has something. An edge. Some stuff that modern games lack.
Graphics - at the time (circa 1993), an amazing game world was rendered (and on a common PC screen.) From non 90 degree walls, to many various textures, and architecture, Doom showed us something not seen to date.
Weapons - shotguns, machine guns, rockets, sci-fi guns, and some melee weapon. This versatile armory has defined multiple generations of FPS arsenals! I dare you to find one FPS since that doesnt have some derivative of this weapon set.
Opponents - A varied bestiary from the depths of hell. What more could you ask for. A despicable enemy and the fire power to take them down. Brutally.
But Doom has 2 even more important elements.
Atmosphere - with a combination of sound and lighting Doom presented a feel no previous game world had. I found the creepiest thing to be running into imps in dark hallways. They werent the games badest foes, but they made up for it with their creep factor. Especially in the dark.
Fun - Doom was outrageous fun. Many modern games could be improved by taking a page out of the Doom bible. And its still fun.
What Doom brought to the table was pure awesome, and few games since compare.
A stunning game for its time.
And a retardedly funny story (you avenge your killed rabbit THATS IT)
The games graphics are not so stunning now,but think back then,Most graphical game of all time in 1993 December 9
Legendary,classic,Still being played After 18 years.
