1993: Has anyone tried playing Doom yet?

Recommended Posts

This is taken from a post from reddit.com]Reddit but I thought people here would be interesting in seeing it. It's screen caps from an old BBS relating to the new game Doom. Here is the original thread and here are the pictures:

Man, I remember those days, when you couldn't use your phone and your internet connection at the same time.

Man do I not miss that :p

Wow, the first time I played it I was just like the guy from the third picture, I didn't know what a door was! When I found out, I thought I was the only moron in the planet, until now... :)

I can see people were already throwing Wolf3D out the windows. It sounds like Hate for the game now that something better is out!

I liked the poem from this page, which was linked to off the main page above... "Twas the night before DOOM." It's not high art, but it is vaguely amusing.

[edit] Heh, reminds me of another fine work of literature by, well, erm, me. [shameless plug!!]

"That game is 11 Meg uncompressed!"

Fwoooar!!!

That takes me back. At 2400 baud (about 210 bytes per second) even shareware Doom takes a few hours to download.

Heh. Back in the day, the rule of thumb was to allow about a Meg an hour for a download.

Thanks for posting xvertigox. Cheers. Really takes me back. It has been a real buzz reading through that old thread.

Which is what all of the PC game press would do for the next several years against Doom. Every decent FPS ending up being a "Doom Killer."

I remember playing Blake Stone *after* having Doom and still enjoyed it immensely. Fun is fun, dated or not.

That's funny that person could not figure out what to do. I remember when I first ever played Underhalls (map02) I couldn't figure out how to get across the gap to get up to the red key.
