DooMBoy

When did you first play Doom?Doom2?

Recommended Posts

The first time I played Doom was when I downloaded the shareware.
I liked it so much, that I borrowed a friend's SNES version (not the best Doom port ever, but it kept me amused) and played the entire way through the game in just 5 days.
Then I heard of Doom2, and borrowed it of of one of my friends, took it home, and installed on the computer. And played it, and played it, and....you get the idea. Now I have re-installed it since my computer crashed, and have so far downloaded the Goldeneye Doom2 zip file. Awesome, man, awesome.
What about the rest of you?

Oh my dear boy, that was long, long time ago, far away in a distant galaxy... I was young and mighty when i start Eternal Battle in Doom... It changed my life at first and then i went down in Hell in Doom 2. Countless times Forces of Evil tryed to stop lonesome space marine... Im still fighting with DOOM of my-self... And look at me now, son... Did i make right choice in taking Jorick nickname in DeathMatch? It changed my life and now im wasted...

I got my hands on a prerelease beta, before the shareware version came out.(can be downloaded now from this site). Then I downloaded the shareware (I had AOL at that time, and only 3 or 4 sites had it, I had to FTP it). By the time I was finished downloading the shareware version (almost 7 hours on my 14.4), I played one level a day just to make it more exciting. It was hard playing just ONE level a day, I had to help myself not grab the keyboar again and play it to the end, so I beat it in a week. This guy that worked at a software house said that they played doom all the time over the LAN at his office, so I copied the complete verion off him. As for Doom 2, I had to stand outside CompUSA and bring my drink cooler and portable chair. I waited almost 10 hours untill they opened at 8am. I wasnt the only one either. There was close to 200 people that were practically camping outside the store, nervous for it to open. A couple of people got a copy before I did though, I was around the 30th who got Doom2, and I had to pry it off the hands of this other guy, who was supposed to be way farther down the line. Ultimate Doom took me completely by surprise, I just found it on the shelves of this local software store.

In December 1993 I was nine years old and didn't have a PC, so I wasn't really in a position to jump at the shareware version the day it was released. I had heard about Doom in many places but didn't play it until 1995, when I discovered the shareware version on a CD. I immediately went out and bought a big shiny box containing the Ultimate Doom, Doom 2 and a crapload of PWADs. The best $20 I ever spent.

I actually played DoomII first. My friend Derek Kook had the game, and I played it 'till my brains rotted out. I beat the whole crapload of levels in about 2 to 3 days. So, I decided to get it myself. I got the Doom I demo instead. Then I bought Ultimate Doom, Doom 2, and Best Levels for D2 all in a neat little package. I was 12 when I got that. Whoa, I got the Doom Trilogy in 1998! I'm a little late!

At a friends house for a few minutes... it was enough to get me addicted. Then I got an issue of FLUX that had a ten page complete overview of why it was the best game that would ever exist a year or so later.

The only time I really got to sit down and play the shit out of it for the first time was when I was around 14 and it came out for the SNES. When I got my first PC in '96 DOOM was the first game I bought. Fortunately I was able to borrow DOOM II and Final DOOM from my friends until I got around to having the cash to go out and buy them.

I was never able to beat Inferno on the SNES... damn. Of course, it wasn't too long before Duke 3D came out. I only had a 1.2 gig harddrive so... I ended up swapping between Doom and Duke a whole lot, which gave me a lot of experience in DOS. Sometimes I even messed up -file, -map, and -game when I would hop between games too much. :)
