Ah, the joy of SNES DOOM.

SNES DOOM is really good, i hold it higher than ps1, and ESPECIALLY the Jaguar version.  Although I think DOOM 64 is the best one ever made

First time I played Doom was in 1995 on a 80386 with a 40 MB Seagate harddrive (I was 15)..

and I loved it.. I did not get to play hexen, heretic, strife etc untill much later

I had been playing Commander keen and wolfenstein before that

As soon as I got my first 80486 pc with windows 95, I got the Doom95 pack (a doom port for win9x)

I remember thinking UV was piece-o'-piss easy... and ended up dying on E1M1. Bare in mind I first played Doom in about 2014.

A bit embarrassing considering how I can just storm through the game now, but that really happened.

The first time I played Doom was probably when I was around 12 years old, so around 11 years ago. I was modding my Wii at the time and I had downloaded a big homebrew pack. One of the many games included was the shareware version of Doom. Imagine trying playing Doom with the Wii remote, and keep in mind that it didn't have motion control support or anything you might expect. Needless to say, I had no idea what I was doing and definitely didn't enjoy myself much. It really wouldn't be until 2014 that I truly got into Doom with Brutal Doom. 

 

These days, I basically never touch the brutal genre of mods, as I've grown bored of them. I now mostly play Doom RPG Rebalanced and various other gameplay mods such as Guncaster, Hideous Destructor(probably my favorite at the moment), and whatever the latest stuff is posted on the ZDoom forums.

I was 4 years old, and I had (and still have) a floppy of Ultimate Doom for Windows 3.1 and Windows 95. My earliest memory of Doom was the music from E1m2, and where the chainsaw was.

My first experience with Doom was on a flash port around 2008/2009. I remember being scared of the e1m4 maze and always dying there. That is also where my runs would end as at the time I did not consider myself skilled enough to pistol start a later level. This next one is a little humorous, I was unaware of digital distribution and games being purchasable online so I assumed I would never get to play the full game unless I bought an old physical copy. Ah the innocence of youth.
