You know when you play Doom too much when...

1. When you start shooting people randomly

2. When you go to hell in real life and you say "Hey, where's my BFG9000?"

3. When you go to war in real life and you say "Everyone yell IDDQD and IDKFA!"

4. When your parents ask you what you want to be when you grow up and you say "Space marine".

5. When you dress up as a demon for Halloween.

6. When Mars, Phobos, and Deimos remind you of Doom.

7. When you get hurt in real life and you say "Hey! I have god mode on! How can I get hurt?!"

Hey, I've got it worse than that. I keep mistaking my Home Ec teacher for one of the bullpig demons (hey, give her horns and bad posture and she's not that far away). And I think I've started hearing the Doom sound effects at random points during the day.

You play too much Doom when:
You see golden flashes of light when you pick objects up
You wonder why everything doesn't flash red when you get hurt
You wonder why you can't carry more than 9 things at a time, like in Doom
You keep hearing imaginary things when ever nobody's around

Hey, isn't there a Fan Fiction done about this in the Fan Fiction Forum?

Hasn't there been numerous posts about this already?

Anywho:

8. When you pick up something, like soda bottle, yow wonder where the yellow flash went and why you don't feel any better

9. When you walk into a gun shop and ask, "Where are the BFG 9000's?"

10. When you take your dad's chainsaw and try to find the nearest Demon to use it on

11. When you refuse to go into any pool of liquid without a rad suit

12. When you get angry 'cuz you're still as mortal as ever, no matter how many times you yell out "IDDQD"

13. When you see some obese person and you run and hide while yelling, "LOOK OUT!!! A MANCUBUS!!!!"

14. When you join the Marine Corps in hopes that you'll be stationed on Phobos and be the savior of humanity

15. When you smash every spider you see just to make sure the world won't be overrun by Arachnotrons

16. When you kill a goat and cut its head open to find John Romero's head on a stick

17. When you get killed and become frustrated because you can't either respawn or press F10 and quit the game

18. When you get confused as to why the doors in real life open in and out rather than up and down

19. When you hit run into a wall, somebody asks you why, and you respond, "I was just checking to see if that was an impassable linedef."

And finally......




20. When you own or possess more than 10 different DOOM related memorabilia items (e.g., t-shirt, desktop theme, DOOM Music CD, etc.)

Or when you try to look down in such a way as to not look at your feet.
Or you try to run with a loaded shotgun in hand, firing like a madman, and wonder why the barrel gets red and hot.

You know you have played too much doom when you missed the last thread like this, or the HUGE one on newdoom that makes all others pale into insignificance. I haven't checked for ages. It must be over 1000 by now. Take out the repeats and dull stuff and you could maybe half that number mind. Still, a few of them are quite entertaining

Sorry. Anyways, I don't have a way to tell if you're addicted to doom and I don't have time to come up with one because I have to go play some doom dm before I kill again.

33: You notice that the Janitor's closet is locked, so you proceed to run around knocking people out and searching their pockets for a red keycard, in the hopes that there's a plasma-gun and perhaps some first-aid kits in said closet.

When you bring a rocket launcher to Laser Tag.


I like this one, funny ;)

To me, it's when you can't help playing again and again...
More you play, more you need it.
That's the way of Doom - Printed forever in your mental hard disk.
