To tie in with our complete history of Doom, i'd like to know:

Favourite moment of Doom ? First time I found the chainsaw, went crazy with it ! Great weapon and a good laugh ! (Plus it never ran out of petrol)

Favourite Doom moment has to be the initial impact of the graphics on a 486 IBM PC in 1994. It was like nothing else at the time. Going from Wolfenstein 3D to Doom was like going from Atari's Pole Position to Gran Turismo 3.

Experiencing the excellent Playstation and Sega Saturn soundtrack which was far better than the PC soundtrack.

Doom on PS1, first time I tried the level select cheat and jumped to the last stage. With it's pumping techno soundtrack, loved it!!

Playing the PS1 version alone in the dark (that's me in the dark, not the game, you know what I mean) and hearing that baby crying in the distance. That gave me the chills.

Wondering what that noise was on the Tower Of Babel level and cacking myself on finding out it was a Cyberdemon.

Seeing it for the first time being demoed at a local computer shop. I was familiar with Wolfenstein but my jaw still nearly hit the floor..

Never got that into actually playing it that much mind. ;)

Breathing a sigh of relief, using the teleporter at the end of Episode 1 and finding myself in a pitch-black room full of demons, and dying in 0.0001 seconds. Sheer terror (to a 10-year old).

13 years of arguing that it's crap? That was one hell of a moment ;)

I know we all like different games but do some people SERIOUSLY think the games crap ?

Yeah all these years later its not obviously as good as other FPS we have but when it came out it was revolutionary, turned many many people to the PC for gaming.

I'm stunned some people think its crap. Just makes me think of everyone amazed by Star Wars when it came out and some bloke saying 'actually its rubbish' just to be controversial and 'different'

Even if you arent a huge fan of first person shooters you have to realise how great Doom was for its time. I'm no adventure fan but i realise when someone says how great Lords of Midnight was etc even though its not my cup of tea
