I too, have fond memories of Doom. First time I saw it was actually the really crappy SNES port.
But then my brother got it on the PC, and all was right. I might have spent more time editing it then I played it, though.
Which makes me think... Have any of you seen just how far DOOM hacking has gone? It's crazy. It might be the most extensively hacked game I've ever seen.
Go to sleep, iguana.
INTP. Type 1>6>5. sx/sp. Live and let live will just amount to might makes right
I still remember IDDQD and IDKFA... didn't even have to Google them...
<sigh>... I was living in India when my brother came for summer holidays from boarding school in the States.... bearing three or four 5 1/4 inch floppies.... once pkunzip did its job, I was rolling.... I think I was eight or nine years old at the time...
DOOM was just.... the best.... far more enjoyable than the original Wolfenstein 3D (all props for its ingenuity and the fact that it was older, but still).
I still sit down for some DOOM I and II when I need to.
Wasn't the gametrack phenomenal!?!?!!?!!!??!?!
And no... there's no way I could finish DOOM I in under 30 minutes... I could beat it on Ultra-Violence though... all episodes of DOOM I.
Madman's azure lie: a zen miasma ruled.
Realize us, Madman!
I razed a slum, Amen.
Doom II was one of the first games I ever played and boy did I play that game. To me, it served as a stepping stone to ID's masterpieces: Quake I & II. Both FVF and CTF were excellent mods to the game. But ya know, no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get into Doom 3. The plasticity in its level design and its poor graphical scaling (at the time) on medium tiered systems really deterred me from playing it. Aside from its graphics, none of the game mechanics were innovative.
Half-Life 2 impressed me more overall than Doom 3.
I may be bested in battle, but I shall never be defeated.
The first PC FPS I ever played was a Doom mod called Chex Quest that came in the cereal box. I played that game obsessively. I've played all the Doom and Quake games. If not for TF2 Quake III would be my desert island game.
Chex Quest was one of my favorite games for a very long time. It was classic.
As for DOOM, it takes second place in my book to a game called Rise Of The Triad...a much better game, with a great deal more LAN play options, including voice-chat and a random map generator.
