I've been a fan of Doom and Doom II since they came out in 1993. I think the first time I played it must have been on an old Tandy 486 at Radio Shack in my local mall. I was amazed. I soon got the shareware version, bought the registered version, and stuck with the games through Heretic, Hexen, and Quake.
So, naturally, as I started watching Let's Play videos on YouTube, I was amazed to find that there weren't a lot of Let's Plays for Doom or Doom II which not only had clear narration, but also discussed every secret, found every enemy, and even showed off known bugs and glitches in each level.
That's where my project began. Last week I started a Let's Play series on Youtube where I played through the entire three episode version of Doom - getting 100% kills and 100% secrets on UV mode. It's gotten some subscribers and some positive feedback, but I don't know why I didn't think to mention it here. I've lurked here a lot, but never registered, and figured why not mention it.
Currently, I'm doing a Let's Play of Doom II and I welcome feedback and comments on my progress. I plan on uploading 1 or 2 maps each night and right now I'm at Map 13 - Downtown.
Here is my Playlist for Doom:
And Doom II: (it's still in progress)
All videos are divided up typically by level (or two videos per level). I do not fly through the levels, and show the map often so that the viewer knows where everything is. Speed runs are great, but they don't serve as a really good walkthrough or strategy guide.
I'm using the ZDoom port for mouselook and wasd - and it gives a nice monster/secret count for the viewer.
If anyone is interested in watching, giving comments, or feedback I openly welcome it in this thread. I'm new to LPing and I'm rusty with Doom, but I get by, so I'm still testing out the waters a bit.
I plan on doing some WADs that have never been LPed before as far as I'm aware - including my favorite, Michael Kelsey's Return to Phobos. It's an amazing WAD pack which deserves recognition. I have a beta video of that if anyone wants to take a look:
(This is unlisted so this is top secret content on my channel)
I may do other non DOOM games in the future, but there's so much to LP for Doom and so many great WADS to LP that there's plenty of content for me to create. I'm having so much fun making LPs, that I'd like this to continue long after Doom II is complete.
