The future of Doom

Recommended Posts

We'll be ensconced in our Matrix-like pods, probably on Mars (given Stephen Hawking's theory), the neurons in our brains being artificially fired to stimulate them, and we'd be imagining ourselves armed with chainsaws venturing out to "find some meat".

 

EDIT: Or we'd all be space marines under the auspices of Rekall

We just have to make our children play Doom and tell them to do the same in the future, and then hopefully everything will be fine.

From a game it will become a prophecy. Tom Hall (or whoever came upwith the story) will be the Nostradamus of the 20th century.

Shame we won't be there to see it.

Maybe the 22nd century and beyond.

In the 22nd century civilization as we know it will no longer exist and Doom will be long forgotten.

In 120 years from now, one of our descendants will go to Mars and fight the forces of evil, in the realm of Hell.

That's the future of Doom... :D

How did the sudden passing of Ty effect the archive? Ling will eventually quit hosting doom world forum or be forced to quit hosting doom world forum - either way the dw forum then will splinter of into many smaller forums which will also eventually disappear.

 

Sorry, I am boring. Space something Rosetta Stone.

The aliens that have conquered Earth will play DOOM and laugh... "this is how Earth children for the invasion?" They should have realized nano insects would just infect them all. Then the alien children will have some sort of fad where DOOM is cool again 200+ years later. Aliens will make their own DOOM clones in class as comedic art.

In the 22nd century, thanks to genetic engineering, Doom can literally run on a potato. People will worship the gholas of John Carmack and Romero, quote from the Doom Bible and send out space probes (capable of running Doom) in search of Tei Tenga. This will spread Doom across the known universe and all shall bow to the God-Emperor Doomguy. Remember, the maps must flow.

In the year 2508 future archaeologists will unearth a copy of shareware Doom deep from the bowels of a GameStop and will be perplexed at such an archaic piece of virtual entertainment.

Then they will finish the first episode and get hooked. Then source ports for their VR hardware will start coming out ...

In the 22nd century, Graf Zahl will be dead. Fraggle will be dead. Linguica will be dead. MaxED will be dead. Fabian will be dead. Skillsaw will be dead. Bradharding will be dead. Rachel will be dead. Romero will be dead. Carmack will be dead.

In short, everyone you know in the community right now, will be dead or near-to-death.

The rest, sure, but Carmack will have uploaded his conscience to an AI and will exist in a virtual reality.

Probably they will make a game that Demons try to summon Humans but failed, so a sole Demon is going to fight against all those invading Humans. In the game, we have "Former Demon Soldier" and "Former Demon Sergeant" or so on. One of the bosses will be Cyberhuman.

That got me thinking. I would've certainly loved it if Vega was based off Carmack's appearance and personality.

Have both Romero and Carmack as AIs and spend half the game listening to them bickering.

First of all John Romero is a vampire, so he has the gift of immortality on his side. And Carmack is clearly a robot.
