Gamersmint: We wouldn’t have dared pirate Doom II after reading this message from ID software, but then again who would?
"Remember if you're playing a pirated copy of DOOM II, you're going to hell" That's how you do it. Pirates beware!
I remember this game came on 11 3.5" disks after I played this game I let 3 friends borrow the disks.
That DOS install took FOREVER! lol I remember the satisfaction from my friend and I after the install finally finished. Those were the days...
lol 11 floppies? i actually had the cd-rom version, probably the first cd based game i ever owned. i had doom1 on 4 disks tho, and for some reason i couldn't find the game at retailers and we had to order direct from id
You dont go to hell over something as silly as stealing a game or as I like to call it borrowing.
Yes you will!!!!
Hell is a silly invention by silly people to scare you into their silly way of thinking.
Funny how religious people find out about places no one ever came out from... in details :/ Isn't that contradicting ?
Well Hell's not so bad if you've got a BFG with you
Would really like to hear the arguments of rhose who disagreed.
bananlol, if you don't believe in that shit(Load of BS imo), then fine, but don't go challeging people who do.
Not wanting people to do bad things? I'm sorry, but I don't find that silly. Nobody knows what lies beyond life.
Belief without reason is a cognitive trait that is far to spread in the human population. It motivates people to do things that gain no one. The same thing that motivate suicide bombers to do what they do motivate the trolls on this site to do what they do. And i find that quite tragic. @Anomen What defines a bad thing? And if the only reason is to stop people from doing these supposedly bad things isnt it a lie then? Im pretty shure death lies beyond life, i mean thats usually what happens.
You speak in absolutes as if your opinion of 'no hell' is reality, or the truth. Here's the bottom line, I'd rather believe in it than end up there because, "I didn't believe so therefore it can't be real". No one knows for sure. Some of you emphasize how you can't prove God, but forget you can't disprove Him either. Let's put it this way, if Christians are wrong they're good either way. However, the real question here is, what if Christians are right? on topic/ Humor in copyright warnings never fail.
Pascal's wager has been discredited by believers and non-believers as a valid reason to follow a certain religion (christianity here) for ages. Believing just to cover your own skin and hedge your bets wouldn't go down all to well if you were to meet you're maker. Surely God would want honesty and not just someone playing the percentages for their own gain? And what if you are following the wrong God?, that would make the real one super-pissed! Worse than if you just couldn't bring yourself to believe due to lack of evidence.
hell is having to play through Damnation from start to finish over and over while listening to Celine Dion for all eternity.
Im not trying to say that the possibility of a creator is 0%, i mean this may werry well be some kind of experiment by some hyper intelligent beings. What im trying to say is that there is no omnipotent god. How do we prove this then, well the simplest way is through heisenbergs uncertainty principle. It states that there is limits to how well one might know a particle. And if there is limits to what one can know, there can be no omnipotent god. And if your conciousness is detachable and can go to hell, how come it gets affected by drugs? Oh well maeby because our brain is nothing more than a biological computer and our consciousness the program it runs.
Fun Fact: The word in the bible that people translated into "hell" is SHEOL which also translates to "GRAVE" or "PIT". So you can believe in a "hell" or not, depending on which translation you use.
@bananlol You talk about God as if you are omnipotent yourself. You can't prove that there is no God. I hope you realize that science itself is just a guess. Nothing can ever be proven as truth. Science is simply used to decide what is most likely the truth. We can't even prove that we exist. Philosophers have questioned our existence for ages. For all we know, we could all just be fragments in someones dream, and when they die or wake up, we will just disappear.
@commander Downloading games isn't stealing because after you download it, it's still there! For example. I could steal your girlfriend and that wouldn't be very nice. But if I cloned her, you would still have your girlfriend, but now I have one too. See? Not stealing. Just copying.
I believe if there is a God, and he is all loving then he wouldn't care if you believed or not. After all, if you didn't believe, that just makes it appear like God didn't do his/her job!
Sonny, it's stealing the products value. Your not paying for the experiance and your not paying for what the dev put in. I don't care, I do pirate alot of games, I pay for ones that deserve to be paid for and deserve the full price, I odn'tpay for old games, just recently I got Xenogears. Loving it. But it's too old and would be to much trouble to get a copy of it, so I downloded it, I stole it, I steal alot of games. Atleast I admit i'm stealing though. My justification is I had most of the games I d/l before, so I techically paid for them already(MGS, Res 4 etc) . It's not lawfully correct and i'm breaking the law, however in my eye's if I paid for something once I should have to pay again, especially since I payed that much for them in the first place ....€50 =/
@RedDeadDestroyer I know, I was just trying to be funny :)
Well there is one thing we can be certain of, our own existance. Cogito, ergo sum if you will. Science as we know it today is based on axioms, facts that cant be argued, like the speed of light in vacum or the infinite uncertainty of pi. If one of these is proven to be incorrect then science as we know it will change. A good excample of this is when classic physic (Newtons) was discarded for quantum physics. Newton wasnt wrong though, Schrödingers model was simply more precise. I wasnt trying to say religion in itself is bad, just those that do not think for themself and follow something blindly do no one a favour. It stands to reason that the only perfect model of a system is the system itself, so we will never be able to understand everything, and perhaps there religion has its place. This is probably the most OT ive ever gone but sometime my mind just wanders off. I apologise if i offended someone, which was never my intent. A religion has no right to tell people how to think, but neither do i.
@sonny Please accept my humble apology then :)
Pirate always pirate games no matter what you say lol
And remember kids hell is not a nice place!
Legends in every way!
American McGee also.
At least McGee did Alice. Romero has done nothing 'cept gain infamy for titles like Daikatana.
This a new thing then? Or from the original game build? Dont really get the 360/PS3 tags though.
Its amazing how small of a staff they needed back then to make games... now there are hundreds... crazy stuff.
well if you look at those games and at games now, it's pretty clear and not amazing at all :)
Dont worry! IDDQD is the code for god mode! Hell should watch out for us
Haha, bubbles up for that one. I remember all the codes that were for Doom II. I spent countless hours playing that game.
Was playing Doom II on XBLA yesterday. Game still stands up as a classic.
http://www.youtube.com/watc... And I have to write this, becuase N4G says "Your comment looks like spam."
WEIRD AL! BILL PLYMPTON (met him he's awesome) win win win bubs =D
The devs of these days only care about money.
stuff or will you be like love for all my house is a open house want anything i work hard for free no need just come in and take.
id was still a growing little company with a lot of potential when they released Doom II. They had to gain their fans, so they went through probably one of the most fun periods of their existence back then. They could do humorous stuff like this, and people like us would love it and come back for more Doom! However, if you want to be a gaming company these days, unfortunately it seems that you have to go big. Creating a giant, awesome game involves a lot of staff. Staff that need to be paid wads of cash in order to survive. Plus, any stakeholders in your company want it to grow constantly (The Social Network has a great example of this - look at the venture capitalists in that movie to get a rough overview). Of course they only care about money. If they don't, they go under. We've seen it before, and we'll see it again. But here's to the little id softwares of today, creating small but great games with super-small teams and loads of passion for gaming!
ID should really give out the first few dooms like Doom 1 & 2 for free just even for xmas be a nice present. I have them all but still to others that don`t have it. Kinda like Rockstar you can go to their site and download GTA 1 & 2 i think it is for free on PC.
lol nice throwback. that's the original splash screen on PC.
i know am going to hell, soo i have to options now muawhahahah
Romero, Carmack and American McGee.. what they could accomplish today given a proper budget.
Too bad Doom 3 sucked and Rage will as well. iD and Rare, such a shame :(
too bad this generation has produced dickheads like you who don't appreciate a classic developer like id
So because they are "classic developers" they shouldn't be held liable to their bad games?
The word epic has lost all meaning.
Holy shit I remember that. God bless the glory days of PC gaming. Also: Everyone on that dev team is a GOD.
Yep I am what you call "a preachers kid" I remember hating going to church when I was younger, now that I'm older I'm thankful I learned about god, heaven and hell. My point is wether you believe in it or not it prompts people to do good and live better lives and in the end if there really is no God or Hell, what did you lose by living a good honest life?
I think people who bought this and read that would have been pissed to know they could have had a pirated version..lmao.
I still have my original Doom II CD-ROM from 1994.
HAHA I remember that
