Doom is based on an inside joke of id Software about the rivalry between Shawn Green and Adrian Carmack (John Carmack's older brother), that's why Doomguy's arms are drawn based on Shawn's arms as well as the status bar face is loosely based on Shawn's face. The demons aside from the Mastermind were drawn by Adrian, the reason Doom is easy it's because the team liked Shawn better than Adrian, Romero on the other hand thought it was unfair so he added NIGHTMARE! in version 1.2 as a compensation.

I'll never forget finding this neat little secret. It was 1992, I was just sitting there on my couch playing DOOM on my OG Xbox, celebrating the fact that there were only 19 days left until 4/20, even though I don't even smoke meth. I only shoot it up. All of the sudden the Cyberdemon in e1m2 started shooting Mancubus fireballs at me. I thought it was just a weird glitch, it wasn't until years later I found out it was actually added as an easter egg by Adrian Romero. Man, id used to be so cool! It sucks that they're only good for selling Shark Cards now.

DOOM must be spelled in all caps, as explained in the song "ALL CAPS" written by DOOM.

Tom Cruise single-handedly made Doom and Quake.

However, Michael Bay directed them.

Doom was made with DOS/4GW because Doom is only for G's.

 

Later, it became short for "For Gates, William" during the brief period where Microsoft attempted to buy id, but the deal falling through resulted in them abandoning DOS/4GW as a middle finger to Microsoft for their next game, Quake.

 

Romero, naturally, was elated, as DJGPP stood for "Dick Juice from Gates' Pathetic Penis."

Tom Hall wanted to add steamy hot sex scenes in Doom to drive up sales by targeting the porn game market, all of ID declined this idea imediately because it was "really f'ing dumb, man, what?", causing Tom Hall to leave ID, he'd eventually realise his dreams of Cyberdemon puss by releasing Mass Effect.

Now that you mention it, most of the levels in episode 2 sound like Dream Theater song titles

This is false. This was a rumor made by the head of the dev team working on the 3DO port of DOOM. The way it went was the Randy was wanting to add sex scenes in the FMV sections of DOOM. There would have been two scenes. For the bad ending, the DOOM Guy would bang the Cyberdemon. In the good ending, however, it would have been the love interest. This was rejected because the only developer working on the game didn't only have the time, but she didn't want to put in the work of drawing the scenes in great detail. This was the main reasons why it was a shitty game in the end, as I quote from Randy, "Either add the Cyberdemon bussy or the game goes full anal".

The guys at Id came up with the idea of making Doom, after they got involved in a bar brawl in which Tom Cruise broke a pool cue on John Romero's head.

Did you know that the Icon of Sin rivals Godzilla in terms of strength? This is because a scrapped draft of the Doom movie, where the Icon of Sin was supposed to be a kaiju, actually states this.

Toho then got salty over this and demanded IDW to make a comic series titled "Godzilla in Hell" where Godzilla literally goes to hell and eventually beats Satan. Literally.

Sorry, must've been tricked, as China's chairman, Xi Jinping, always said, "don't believe in everything you see on the net, specially the Doomworld forums".

imp song in doom's episode one mission 2 was based off tool's debut album single opiate headman Maynard James Keenan of tool hated the doom rendition because of the time signature choosen to quote the drummer of tool Danny Carey in an interview from home invasion magazine"they didn't have a drummer behind helping with the track it was just essentially one guy so the creative process was totally different and makes for a terrible copy"

I saw John Romero at a gun store in Los Angeles yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything. He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?” I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Lugers in his hands without paying. The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter. When she took one of the guns and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical interference,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each gun and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.

Final DOOM was based off of his annoying ass attitude due to the amount of chain-gunners and archviles.

In the original Doom 2 prototype. Doomguy would be able to travel in an open world and play a game of Black Jack with surviving marines. The character would have to level up their "game" skill for the final boss against American McGee, where doomguy would have to play a game of chess to win. The entire team decided against this and American McGee was fired. McGee would carry this hatred when adding black jack in Fallout New Vegas.
