First time you played DOOM

Recommended Posts

The part in E1M8, once I finally defeated the two Hell Barons and the walls that confined the arena crumble down revealing the outer landscape of Phobos, you press the switch that rises the stairs up to the final gateway you pass through, and your plunged into a pitch black room full of your monsters and your god mode turns off!

Honestly that was one of the most remarkable moments in any video game I've ever played. No other game has ever made you feel like you were winning the game only to throw such a curveball of a defeat at you while USING CHEAT CODES. That was by far one of the most memorable experiences I have playing Doom the first time.

Oh man I remember the first time I went through on Ultra Violence with God mode. Just as you think you are about to win; it just steals the moment away.

I remember always wondering as a child if there was an exit room or switch that was secretly placed there. I hated dying in that room... but the death was worth it. I absolutely love The Shores of Hell.

I first heard about Doom in middle school as it was just coming out ... it was described as "Wolfenstein 3d with a shotgun and a rocket launcher."

I was a very avid Wolf3d fanatic, and I was initially disappointed with Doom because it: was dark and gloomy; the hero moves in an ackwardly cumbersome manner (inertia); the maps have pitfalls and hazards (I was not accustomed to traps); and you actually need weapons like shotguns and rocket launchers to ... you know ... not die.

The game has grown on me quite a bit since then. I was stunned when I learned about the source ports and crazy stuff modders are doing with it today. Simply unprecedented.

LOL!!!
It's more similar to a skull of a cow :D
Reminds me playing through E2M2 and being in the sewer-like tunnels, where I've picked up the "Pajamas", aka Radsuit. I was quite concerned about that I see green everything because of spending too much time in the nukage! :D

I was 9, and I could play it 2 years. Then my computer has been crashed, and it was needed to format...

Previously I've never played any computer games (only something ski game, which had vectorgraphic...ehh :D), so I had miscellaneous feelings. Firstly, I could move, but I couldn't shoot :D I was needed some minutes until I found Ctrl :D also, I couldn't open doors, but I've never found Space, so I always use IDSPISPOPD (noclip cheat in Doom1) for travelling trough the doors. I was VERY, VERY LAME :Đ

I saw only some levels; only E1M1, E1M8, E2M1, E2M2, E3M1, E3M2 and E3M6; also I remember a bit about E1M2, E1M3, E1M8, E2M3 and E2M5

I've never seen many things: the E2 sky, the E2 and E3 bosses, the intermission screen (I supposed to remember, althoug I don't remember :D) and the most parts of the game.

I scared many things: Doomguy's bleeding face, suddenly shooting enemies, etc.


Also, I gave funny names for monsters:

Also, when i was small, my monster names were:
Zombieman: Pistol Guy
Shotgun Guy: The Same
Chaingun Guy: Also the same
IMP: A non-sense word i forgot :P
Demon: Biter
Cacodemon: Balloon :P
Hell Knight: White Horse
Baron of Hell: Red Horse
Lost Soul: Flaming Head
Pain Elemental: Monster Reborn
Revenant: Skeleton
Arch-Vile: Fire Skeleton
Arachnotron: Spider
Spider-Master Mind: Giant Spider
Cyber-Demon: Big Horse (Giant version of Hell and Baron)



Well, about me

Zombieman: Soldier (WTF?)
Shotgun Guy: the same
IMP: Fireball-thrower monster :P
Demon: Quasimodo-monster
Cacodemon: nothing :P
Baron of Hell: Minotaur
Lost Soul: just skulls
Chaingun Guy,Hell Knight and from Pain Elemental to the Cyberdemon I no one saw until I played with Final Doom when I was 12)

I start doom when I was 4, at that time I am only a noob and quite afraid of playing hard stages. I still remember the first time I see the Cyberdemon in E2M8, I was very scared of him so I won't play E2M8 anymore at that time.

Until when I was 15, I decided to go to E2M8 again and deal with the Cyberdemon.

I was terrified to play any hard levels for doom II, for example if i saw a load game that contains map20 i was changing it fast or map10, oh boy that cyberdemon scared me.

I think I found the shareware by accident while browsing around shareware-sites somwhere in the beginning of the new milenium. Needless to say, I was hooked.

Doom was THE VERY FIRST game I have ever played on the PC. I got it from one of those game magazines that used to come with a CD-ROM (wow!) full of shareware games. My computer at the time was a 486 with 8 MB RAM, DOS and Windows 3.11 on top of it, and oh boy just to get the game running was an adventure.

Sounds like quite the experience.

I discovered the Doom shareware on a Games For Windows 95 disc which had all kinds of games, but the best one on there was Doom obviously.

Before Doom however, my first id Tech 1 game and introduction to the world of FPS was Hexen.

I must of been age 9 or something when playing both of these.

Later on I'd discover Heretic (which I'd mix up with Hexen as I sampled some of it at a friend's house along with Hexen which I got to keep), Wolfenstein 3D, Quake 1 & 2 (I was introduced to Quake II first as the demo), Hexen II, Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior, Blood, Blood II, Shogo, Half-Life, Unreal and so on. Virtually all of these games I've played a shareware/demo of before owning it.

So you were born less than a year after Doom was?

My first was SNES Doom in 1996. That was right before the N64 came out, and I eventually got Doom 64. And I've been hooked ever since.

This, first time seeing the Barons was already authentic and memorable, but knowing you get screwed in the end by the demons made me think the name Doom was literal.

I actually started with Wolf3d which I loved. I was pretty young at the time and the dogs scared the crap out of me.

I didn't discover Doom until Doom95, when a friend introduced it to me. I played the shareware to death for a few years but it was soon forgotten. I rediscovered Doom a few years ago and got Doom, Doom 2, and the Master Levels. I still play it like crazy.

(First post I'm making after lurking here for over a year, so yay for me!)

I don't exactly remember what it was like when I first played Doom when I was a kid, but I know I always had a blast whenever I played it. My older brother had the full registered version, along with Doom II and Quake, and I remember how he'd have his friends over playing it with him. Although there was a long time where I avoided the game because the pinky demon started giving me nightmares. :P

It wasn't until a few years ago that I came across the old Doom diskettes I had laying around and decided to give it another go. And wow, I totally forgot how awesome, nostalgic, and innovative this game was! Then I started playing Doom II again, which was also an awesome experience. I tried out Quake too, and while it's also a pretty cool game, I just feel a lot more "at home" with Doom and it's atmosphere. Then started checking out Pwads, and the rest is history...

Now I'm currently playing the Final Doom games, which I never got to play before. This game truly is a timeless classic! =)

Final Doom (Doom 95) came with it's own launcher back then. I think the Doom 95 launcher probably set the standards for the current Doom engines seeing as a lot of the features that were offered in the Doom 95 launcher are featured in most modern Doom engines such as ZDaemon and SkullTag.

I first played it in 1993 at age thirteen. I had no idea that Doom was even being made at the time. I was a player of many shareware games, and I recognized id's name as being a developer for Apogee. So I knew basic stuff about the shareware world, namely: Apogee and id = good! Also being a follow up in evolution to Wolf3D made it seem logical. BUT *nothing* could have prepared me for what I first experienced with Doom. Actually, Doom was the game that made me into a PC Game fanatic to begin with. I never went to mall to buy PC mags until I noticed one with an article that previewed Doom 2. And then I later noticed the PC Gamer that named Doom as the greatest PC Game of all time, it being a whole year old or so. My fanaticism peaked sometime until the release of Quake, which wasn't any where near my expectations. I doubt a FPS with Doom's impact will ever be released again. Not Half-Life, Halo, or anything.

Same as me, I am afraid of that map too.

But anyway, dealing with that Cyberdemon is not hard. Just make him infight with the Spider Mastermind is OK. it's lucky that the Cyberdemon dead first.

It was 1995 or 96 the first time i played doom using my cousin's computer.
I started with e1m1 and finished in e1m4, i died (without saving) in the little labyrinth in the west side. I did the error to shoot a demon with a rocket launcher.
I was playing it with two other cousins: i did movements, one cousin was shooting and the other was changing weapons.
We were not very coordinates ;-)

Then we loaded a saved game and started playing e2m7. We were killed by a cacodemons.
The first time i saw a caco i didn't realised it was a ball, i thought it was a worm-like creature.
And "caco" is similar to the Italian "cacca" which means poo... so for use the cacodemon was the poo-demon. Very funny.
