When did you first play doom?

Recommended Posts

Oh piss. I forgot. : / First time, seriously, was at a friend's house when the demo was first out. I remembered how happy I was when I found the chainsaw in map 2. That was good stuff.

I remember my first time. I had been excited about Doom ever since I first heard about it, but I was almost giddy when I finally got to try it. It was late at night, and although I tried to maintain my cool, I have to admit I was a bit nervous. After all, I had never played Doom before. And sure enough, I managed to aim everywhere but where I needed to, and it was all over in 30 seconds. I certainly felt embarassed, but after taking some time off, I was ready to try again, and I lasted much longer. Naturally, since then I've managed to hone my skill so that I can control how long I last.

...

Okay, so I just decided to buy the demo one day because, hey, it was a game called Doom and it was dirt cheap. I've been hooked ever since.

Yeah, it was in summer 96... :)
I just got my FUCKING fast 486 with 8mb ram (later 16mb).
I did't really have any special games on it, but later I went home to one from my class, he had a game, he wanted to show me. (Guess which game it was :P).
Well, I got some disks with it to try it, and liked it of couse (doom is what there made me like first person shooters).
Later I bought the doom trilogy with doom1+2 and master levels.

Is it actually possible to buy the master levels for the pc these days? I'm trying to avoid the cheap-ass approach by getting it off the net.

Originally, I hated DOOM. I thought it looked like crap and lacked any kind of motivating qualities. If it had been on my computer, I'd have deleted it outright.

I am teh sarcasm.

Yes, I remember my first time playing Doom. It was a long time ago, and I don't remember it all that clearly. Why is there a thread about this every two weeks or so? It's as though there's a Thread Recycling Bin.

i was 8, i picked up wolf 3d at 6 tho, wolf 3d came on a 'Best of battle games' cd rom, pentium had just come out, and my uncle got one and i played through wolf3d without getting hit or using strafte, so my uncle went for something harder, and he found a copy of doom2. i was 8.
