I already have 5 official PC copies of DOOM II (Hey, you can never have too many copies of DOOM, especially when it's your favorite game of all time!). I'd like to get another one, this time in its original box complete.

Here's the two I have my eye on currently:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/id-Doom-II-...=item27ce4720a0
http://www.ebay.com/itm/DOOM-II-2-P...=item4d073e4d77
Which one do you guys think is the best one to buy?

This doesn't mean I'll buy it immediately, but it's something I'll definitely consider...

The first one looks better, IMO.

Much cheaper too. Get that one.

EDIT: They seem to be different releases. I don't know if there's any difference in the version or the value though.

First one is a DOS version, while the second is a later Windows (Doom 95) version. I'd value the first one higher because of that.

I just bought the boxset you guys were pinpointing me towards. Thanks for your help! Much appreciated.

Plus, with fraggle's comment (which I actually read AFTER buying the boxset), that will make this an even bigger trinket in my grand archive...
