How did you get into doom?

Recommended Posts

Heh, lets all tell stories about how we first got addicted to this game that has us ranting and raving in the dw forms.

I first got into doom back in '94 when i got a 5 finger discount on the retail version of doom. Only i didn't have a computer to play it on. So i tried installing it on my firends 386, which proved to be quite unsucesful. Then in '95, got a computer and put doom on it and loved the fuckin thing. A few monts later i happened to get my hands on a copy of doom II (thank you planet warez!) and i havn't put it down since.

I typed "Doom" at the DOS prompt.

Wow, that was basically the same thing that happened with me. I don't think it was an egghead store, and I'm not sure how old I was...

i started with wolfenstein in '93,then when doom came out,i got the shareware version,loved the damn game,and finally bought the full version.when doom 2 came out i thought i had died,and now i am waiting for doom 3.i hope it's as good(or better) as doom was when it first came out.

I loved Wolfenstein 3d. I logged on to one of the local BBSs and saw a game called Doom (said it was like Wolfenstein).

I downloaded it and was blown away and then called up all of my friends....the rest is history.

I was a wolfenstein fan and then one day a freind of my dad's told him (and conversely me) about this hot new 3d game that was coming out... had to have a 386 to run it so I ended up upgrading (from 286).

THat 386 was around for a long time.

Wasn't long before I was taking screenshots of the game and modifying them in dpaint2.

Didn't get quake1 until about '98, quake2 until recently (a few months back), and quake3demo until a few days ago (heh, and it sux).
