Confessions from an addict

Recommended Posts

I must come clean. i am an addict.

i have been addicted for about a year..... i just cant stop.

i try to do other things, but i just keep returning to my addiction

 

 

I am addicted to Doom.

i cant stop playing it!

does anyone else suffer from this awesome addiction?

                                                                         [hehe...]

but in all seriousness i really enjoy the game, and the Community as well. and i am proud of being a part of this awesome community.

The main "addictive" part of Doom, for me at least, is that it's the game that brings me as close as possible to the feeling I get in dreams. Still not sure why, and I've been thinking about this for almost 20 years. Might be the abstract realism, or the basic, pure violence of the whole thang, but there's something I feel almost ritual when I load a wad up.

for me it has to be the idea of 1 man killing hordes of demons. plus all of the content out for it, and that you can run it on anything.

I haven't talked to my girlfriend in months or really done anything other than Doom 👍

 

It's all I dream about. All I think about. All I do.

It appears I have found someone who may be living an exact clone of my own life. XD

 

In other words, SAME.

As an actual addict I thought you were serious for just a second. xD

 

But yeah I've been a DOOM nut since I was 8 (I'm 31 this year). There's just something perfect about the core gameplay loop in conjunction with the focus on discrete maps that along with the fantastic map makers lend itself to endless amounts of fun.

 

It's also a FPS with a pretty significant focus on map exploration (depending on the map of course) alongside the merciless genocide that helps it not growing stale or monotonous.

 

A perfect storm of qualities.

two of my favorite things to do is shoot several imps with a shotgun, and to one-punch pinky demons with a berserk pack....doom is very therapeutic

Doom changed my life probably and i think it's one of the greatest games of all time (no matter if you play it on a DOS based 1994 machine or some weird prboom+ fork that adds actual gunfire that pops off of the screen that you have to dodge :D).

 

Doom made my childhood 10x and the doom community did too (holy moly the time i've spent playing random wads :D).

 

Now with life and occupation i always feel tired and i don't have the energy to actually go and play a wad for a long time/make my own stuff because life kind of drains me and i just fall down but i will always love this game :D

L here, I must say that I already suspected that. Based on the awesome song you made, and the simple fact that we're all here, in Doomworld.

I burnt several hours playing Doom in 2020. Haven't touched the game in 2021. I dunno why.

Absolutely but it's an addiction that is actually good in a way.  You meet lots of cool people in the community and you relieve stress from normal life.  It's the best game ever made in my opinion.  And I second the comment above that it changed my life.  The whole reason I got a computer in the first place was to play a game I saw on the news that they were calling too violent.  That led me to modifying it and then programming in general, which became my career path.

what i love about it is that is is actually a game that can run on an "Extra Starchy Potato" that i actually really like [lots of the other games that can run on potatoes i am not a big fan of]

but even if i didnt have a potato i would still be a Doom addict. ehehehe.....

Just one more map won't hurt. Stop looking out the sun didn't already raise. STOP the birds chirping outside are just a loud neighbor's tv!
