After 20 years, Doom co-creator John Romero looks back on the impact of a seminal game (interview)

Doom was the beginning of so many things. When it debuted December 1993, it cemented the appeal of the first-person shooter computer game and spawned a genre of games that is now a multibillion-dollar business. John Romero, who still has rockstar-length hair, was a big part of its success as a co-founder of id Software, the Dallas area company that is now owned by Bethesda Softworks.
