Ancient Doomworld

Recommended Posts

Holy fucking ass dog shit! I've just discovered the ancient Doomworld!

Last updated 17-2-2001. lol.

Also, no Everything else portal. Weird. The site also looks... unusual..


Lol this thread. Doom 3 will come out in 2002...


Also, that stupid fish.. it already existed back in the day?

Also, according to this thread, apart from losers, there were also winners:


Ok, I'm not gonna post any more pictures.. people don't like when there're many pictures..
But that's just amazing to discover this old relic.. looks like many things have changed since then..

The old DW design was interesting, to say the least. Very much part of the early 2000s design zeitgeist.

That Carmack interview quote is interesting, because that was right around the time when development times were growing longer and longer. Daikatana got mocked for taking so long to release largely due to Romero's hubris but games regularly take two years or more to make now. How long have we been waiting on D16 at this point?

mewse (as depicted in your screenshot) was the originator of the fish meme.

Well, it was announced back in 2008, no?

I also discovered those "Doomworld Forums". It's not the half-broken format that caught my attention, but the total incomprehensibility of whatever people posted there! Were the forum members too young to hold coherent discussions?

Is mewse still active here? Blast from the past!

I'm new to Doomworld, what does this fish meme mean anyway?
