Developed by Id Software

You are the last defense against these hell-spawned hordes. Prepare for the most intense mutant-laden, blood-splattered action ever!

Nice break down of the first Doom game story in a little over a minute. Doom was the first game to ever scare me because of its graphics and use of sound. The original Doom story was re-booted in Doom 3, which changes the original Doom narrative but keeps the blood, guts and carnage.

This is a painful Kotaku piece to summarize so ill just let you read it now and go over some of the more cringeworthy aspects of it.

This site is making me reminisce a lot. Who else remembers staying up til 4AM downloading .WAD files over crappy modem speeds just to play bizarre Doom mods? There were some clunkers, but there were some true masterpieces too. I played a Star Wars total conversion, complete with light sabers, that was incredible.

This was the second PC game I ever played, I think, and I still play it occasionally. Even the keyboard controls have held up, or at least my fingers still remember it. iD may have sunk a bit these days, but they're still one of the almighty developers in my eyes.
