Hey guys, it’s been awhile since I’ve been able to post anything. I’ve been out of town, and just now really getting back. I’ve missed the blog, and what better way to come back then with a Throwback Gems post? Hope you enjoy.
Originally released in 1993, on PC, by id Software, DOOM has spawned across multiple platforms since then. In the video game industry, is known as a classic, and for good reason. I personally never played Doom, until 1995 on the SNES.
Who hasn’t heard of Doom? If not then it really would surprise me. Which it should, Doom is considered one of the most important and influential games in the industry. Looking back now, Doom may not seem like much. Back then, Doom was great, scary and terrifying to some, including me.
In the early 90’s gaming was just starting to break barriers. You the player, playing as a space marine, fighting demons who were invading from hell, was unheard from. It was different, something new and refreshing.
With a good variety of weapons, and levels, Doom had a good amount of fun. Which gave many players a game they could continue to play time and time again. Sadly though a game such as this, came with a lot of controversy’s.
Through out the years, Doom has received hate for having things such as, Violence, Gore, Satanic Imagery. Doom gave fears that it would be a realistic killing simulator, it was dubbed a mass murder simulator by religious groups. If that’s not enough, Doom had even been blamed for school shootings at one point.
Even with all of this, it hasn’t stopped Doom from remaining popular amongst players, or even being ported to new consoles. The series has steadily evolved over the years, and shows no signs of stopping. The series may not see as many releases as some others do, but that is OK, us fans are patiently waiting.
If you’ve never played Doom or any of the series, I suggest that you do. Doom may be old, yet you can still find it easy on PC, Xbox 360, even PS3.
Thanks for reading everyone, I’ll be doing another Toxic Transgression update soon, so stick around.
