Carl Williams writes, "When id Software released Doom they probably didn’t expect it to take off like it did. Previously they did a lot of other games that weren’t nearly as big and the moderately successful Wolfenstein 3D. The point is, everything prior to Doom was nowhere near as popular. Doom expanded upon the graphics conveyed in Wolfenstein 3D and added more detail, more weapons and of course enemies that came straight out of Hell (literally). Transgressing the name itself, Doom also became the moniker of the genre itself when fans would discuss First Person Shooters in general- Doom clones."
