Mancubus II

Doom Turns 12

Recommended Posts

Happy birthday Doom! That's right, today marks the 12th anniversary of the original shareware release of Doom for the PC. While I can't say we've got anything in particular planned (edit: yes we do, see below), I suggest taking a bit of time today to navigate the site and especially the idgames archive to find some great wads to play. While you're at it, check out the Doom Advent Calendar for a new wad to play every day of the month!

Edit by Cyb - I don't know what Manc was thinking, forgetting the cake. It'll never happen again, we swear!

More important edit by Bloodshedder - I am pleased to announce that The 12th Annual Cacowards site has opened. Go take a look-see at Scuba Steve's (and our) favorite picks for the best WADs of 2005!

Damn, I've been playing this game for longer than either of my kids have been alive - my daughter is a couple of weeks younger than Doom.

Oh well, I suppose next year Doom will be a teenager. It'll probably start smoking, throw parties when I'm not home, hang around bus shelters and intimidate pensioners. :)

Crazyness!

I found myself playing Doom longer than usual this morning, I knew something was up! Happy birthday Doom!

I was also looking for good speedruns to watch, do I remember a Doom 2 speedrun where the player took no damage, or am I just stupid?

Horray for DOOM! Rejoice, and lean to one side! Rejoice, and lean to one side!

I wonder how many other games there are that still have a strong following at age 12.

None that I can think of.

Happy birthday!

Oh! I remember, acctaully I looked up the old forum threads from back in the day. It was a nighmare speedrun that I was so impressed with... duh. I guess this is why im still a newbie. (sniff)

Happy 12th, Doom. Looking forward to the Cacowards, and I hope everyone took some time today to play some classic Doom.

Which I am glad to say [Jägermörder 2] is, a fantastic map capable of running on all ports Boom compatible.

It actually only runs in ZDoom.

You should've delayed the Caco Awards until after New Year's so Crucified Dreams could win the Mordeth award instead. But there's always 2006...
