36.

1984 might have been a year feared by many, but it was the year I was born.

26 here. First saw my dad playing Doom when I was 4 - 1999, Started playing Doom/2 in 2000/2001, started playing WADs in 2006, and started mapping only this year in 2021!

 

My dad still plays Doom to this day, but he doesn't have an account here, (that I know of)...lol

Yeah, I probably should've stated that I'm 14.5 as well. So perhaps it's a tie for third as Hitboi is 13?

Since this has turned into more of a 'share your age' thread, I'm 40 -- been playing DOOM since maybe about 1996? (It was the PlayStation 1 version, in Europe; that year feels kinda right somehow) and mapping since 1999; late to the party at the time, I had no idea the scene would endure as much as it has! Indeed, when I joined this forum in my twenties way back when, I felt like one of the inexperienced kids on the block! (Still do, kinda, which is weird)

Also, as an aside, I literally saw the millennium in playing DOOM. Nice.

I'm 33 and about turning 34

I remember when played PSX Doom on '99 for the first time and learning about DooM having map editors, my dream was to make my own Doom level, I had lots of ideas for that. When I got a pc almost 10 years later and a map editor... My map making inspiration and ideas were long gone... Never finished a single one lol

I'm not planning to stop dooming anytime soon, I expect of keep playing it for more and more years XD

I am one score rotations and five moons of age. Younger, perhaps, than one might expect given my curmudgeony demeanor ;)

I should get back on topic. A year ago Eris said his grandfather still played DOOM. His grandfather is now 90 and played DOOM 2016 when he was 88. I imagine he is the oldest DOOM Player.

Late reply but it was my granddad who introduced me to Doom (5, 2002 to answer the thread question). Last year he was playing Doom 2016, and last week he turned 89.

My body is 32, my brain is somewhere in my early 20s and I feel like I am about 80 overall. Does that count?

It blows me away that mapping since 2001 makes me one of the “longer term” mappers around. Compared to me you’re a true-blue OG - you have that 90s mapper cred!

 

People newer to the scene likely lump 1999 almost in with the early pioneers, even though there’s a 5 year gap.. I guess because 5 years “late” seems flat out early compared to a 28 year (and counting) lifespan, with new mappers joining the gold every day.. it’s really an amazing phenomenon.

 

I’m so glad all the people saying “Doom is dead, there’s no point” back in the early 00s were wrong.. It’s been cool watching the community gradually grow slowly but surely since then. I thought I was late to the party, turns out I joined at Doom’s “lowest low” in terms of popularity and just got to watch it slowly on the up and up since, multiplayer aside. I’m so thankful for Doom 16/Eternal and even Doom3 a bit back in the day keeping the name relevant from decade to decade. Great gateways to funnel new fans back to the classics!

Well I’m 52, a year younger than John Romero.

 

When Doom came out I was almost out of college and I played it for many years, and then life got in the way and I took a long hiatus. Now I’m back enjoying it more than ever.

 

I remember in the computer lab in college I would always sign on to the mainframe and play around. That's how I found out about Doom.

1984 kids unite! 

 

I always enjoy these threads to see the sheer variety of people here. We have 13 year olds rubbing shoulders with 65 year olds half a world away, of all manner of race, gender and creed. Hooray for Doom!

I'm 37 and while I've been playing Doom ever since it came out, I'm still a big casual at it. As a kid I'd play on I'm Too Young to Die and when I wanted to feel badass, I'd enable cheats and play on Ultra-Violence. Good thing I got tired of this at some point and decided to play on higher difficulties legit while finding this way more fun.

I'm 37 and also born in 1984. I was about 10 when I first played Doom, and I was 16 when I joined this site.  I remember posting here after I finished my work in my high school html class.

Yes, nothing brings people of all races, creeds, religions, gender and sexuality together quite like the wholesome art of violent large scale demon genocide.
