    I remember when....

    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.

    Although I remember wolfenstein 3D - same engine but rather risqué due to whole Nazi thing it had going on.

    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.
