I remember when....
Doom came out. My job suffered. My marriage suffered. I worked it out once and I think I must have spent about 6 months of my life playing it altogether. I even bought a new PC so I could play it at a decent frame rate.

Pah it was only the game that shaped the first person shoot-em-up foreverOriginally Posted by FN-Greatermanchester
Although I remember wolfenstein 3D - same engine but rather risquÃ© due to whole Nazi thing it had going on.
I remember Puzzle Bobble Quick Snack and Jaguar XJ220 on ye olde Amiga, does that count? For anything?
Not as much as Dizzy on the speccy, or Chucky Egg on the Amstrad!Originally Posted by webman
Ah yes - Doom was great! Mind you as per other poster I remember playing Wolfenstein 3D and being amazed! Played that for ages!!
Couldn't play Wolfenstien without wretching. Made a map fo Doom of my old workplace. A psychologist would've found it VERY interesting
I've got Doom working great on my PDA - if you still have the original PAK files it works a treat - there is a pay version out there which is a bit of a con, but with a little hunting around you can get another ver which will run and it you have the original disks then the levels are all there to enjoy...
Just waiting now for Duke Nukem 3D to be launched...
[ This game is responsible for me failing to complete my C++ course many years ago.... ]
Also, I was thinking of writing a DarkBasic Doomish style game myself - thing is I don't think I'll ever get time....
That thing was responsible for me nearly flunking my 11+.. IIRC.
Manic Minor was good too - I've met Matthew Smith too - nice chap.
was one of my favs too - even though it took about 20 mins to load !!
