Obviously very true Doom facts thread

Recommended Posts

Doom 4 was started in 1998 and took 15 years to develop and came out in 2011 ending up a giant disappointment while it's competitor, Duke Nukem Forever, started in 1998 and released in 2001 to critical acclaim, calling it "the best first person shooter since Doom"

The Revenant isn't actually punching you - she has no eyes, so she's actually trying to stop herself from falling when she bumps into you.

 

Bonus true fact: As hinted above, the Revenant is actually female. Turn-ons: Space Marines and Napalm. Turn-offs: Ceilings and guys who keep their distance.

It was a Tuesday. Carmack said to himself, "It's 2:22pm. How can we top Wolfenstein 3D?" By 3:00pm, he had topped it. (He thought of Doom.)

Romero only released Nightmare after he was able to complete it deathless. He chuckles every time someone thinks it is a joke difficulty.

Not really a Doom fact, but Daikatana's original tagline was "John Romero's about to make a video game".

I'm still waiting for Romero to play even over 19 months after my original post. He hasn't turned up.

4 True Fun Facts:

  • Map 32 of Plutonia is called "Go 2 it", map 32 of Plutonia 2 is called "Go 4 it" and map 32 of Plutonia 3 is called "Go 8 it". The names of these maps are a reference to John Romeros thought processes when he used to find any pastry (He goes to it. HE GOES FOR IT! And then he ate it...).
  • In 2007 - King Crimson bassist Tony Levin ripped off the music of DOOM 2 ("Entryway" specifically) for his song "Welcome" and the only reason why he hasn't been sued is because Bobby Prince doesn't want to open up that can of worms.
  • In id lore - Doomguy is related to the Wolfenstein character Blowjob Blazkowicz. BONUS SUPER MARIO FACT: The Mario 64 glitch BLJ stands for "Blow-Long-Job".
  • The Eternity Engine source port doesn't exist, it is a mass delusion that is plaguing many DOOM fans.

1 True Kinda-Sorta-Edgy Fact (and no - it has nothing to do with the EDGE source port):

Spoiler
  • Every wad author who implements new enemies into Vanilla DOOM goes through the same mental anguish of being thankful for the existence of Nazi Germany and suicidal children.

5 Extra Fun Facts:

  • After making PRBoom +/UMAPINFO - Graf decided to work on a secret project that will revolutionize the world of Boom source ports, details are yet unknown but the name of the project is "The Crispy Chocolate QGZLPRBoom+/UMAPINFOVAVOOME3DGE-My-Best-Marine-Up Engine"
  • If someone develops a DOOM source port that doesn't work - God himself will come down from Heaven and he will smack the ports developer in the head for breaking the 11th Commandment - "Anything can run DOOM!"
  • Crispy DOOM is crispy! Oh... GOD, IS IT FUCKING CRIsPY!
  • Despite common knowledge - NO, Chocolate DOOM doesn't taste like chocolate, because it is a fucking program, not a piece of food!
  • Every copy of DOOM is personalized (that's what the mods are for).

All DOOM mods are canon, including HDOOM!

Okay, fine, it's a cover of a song, but still!

What's next? Will Fripp make a frippertronic cover of the Icon of Sin track? Will Jakko make a song dedicated to Daisy? WILL ADRIAN START DOING CHAINSAW NOISES?!
