ScreenCritics Shaun goes back to explore one of the most important video games ever released - id Sotware's iconic 'DOOM'.
Doom played on a 486 SX 25 MHz computer, the good old days :)
I still have our old family DOS computer - purely so I an play DOOM in all its DOS glory.
Autoexec.bat and soundblaster pro 16 :)
Packard Bell :)
I first played doom in 1995 on the mega drive 32x. The worst version ever (except the snes version) but I had no comparison at the time and it blew my mind. I remember having the PlayStation version with its incredible lighting and audio also. Doom will forever be one of my biggest influences in my gaming life.
I remember being bemused by the PS1 version. All they changes they made to the lighting - felt like a different game. Things like throwing in DOOM 1 and 2 onto the same disc, and even putting Doom 2 enemies in the original Doom levels. It was mind blowing to a 5 year old.
It bemused you?
I remember playing doom on ps1 coop via link cable with a friend, that was damn fun!!
