Well, i decided to write a timeline of my DooMing. I had written like 2-3 paragraphs last time but now i wanna write a timeline. here's my timeline:
Dec.10, 1993- I had no idea what the fuck was going on. Didnt know DooM was released. I was 6.
Feb.1994-My cousin shows me his new copy of DooM full version. I play it with him(he was 9 at the time)and i was amazed at it. I was really impressed.
Apr.1994-My dad gets the shareware for me. I play and play and play.
Aug.1994-Finally, my dad buys me DooM full version. i become obsessed. The obsession begins!
Dec.1994-I got DooM 2 for Christmas. My cuz had had it for 2 weeks now. What a way to end my 1st year of dooming. Let the obsession begin...AGAIN!!!!
1995-I find my old shareware DooM file and toy with it. I go back to attempting to beat DooM 2 on nightmare.
1996-By now i decide to go get Final DooM, and my fave level was TNT level 9 on nightmare. Heheh...
1997-My cuz makes his first wad, only for himself and me. He starts to toy with Ultimate DooM, as i purchase it in december.
1998-I seem to forget about DooM as i turn 12, as my cuz starts to make some preety cool levels, but just for him and me.
1999-I re-rediscover my OLD doom shareware, and i mess around with it again.
2000-I find my old, dirty DooM 2 disc. I put it in my windows 98, and im pissed because the CD was damaged or something. I find on the internet many old WAD files like Aliens TC and i rediscover them as my old files of them were outdated.
2001-I call up my cuz, and we play co-op Doom 2.That started a tradition that every 2 weeks, we would engage in either deathmatch or co-op.
2002-2003: Not much dooming in these years except for the tradition i mentioned above. Not much SP to be exact.
2004: Let the obsession re-begin...AGAIN!!!! I buy DooM Collectors edition amd im thrilled. I re-download cyberdreams. I call up my cousin and he buys it too. The tradition still continues, with him and i both every 2 weeks playing DooM together. And most of all, i learn a whole new generation of doom-DooM3. and shit, i still haven't got it! Dammit!
