About Doom Online
Doom is a seminal gun game originally released in 1993 by ID Software. It was released after their first shooter and pretty much launched the first person shooter genre. Now playable online it is still amazingly fun with excellent level design that still holds up well today.
It features a massive array of weapons including a pistol, the amazing for it's time shotgun (whose sound effects seem to have been used everywhere!), a rocket launcher and the super powerful BFG. It is packed with secret areas to find and excellent set pieces with 10 different enemy monster types.
It may look retro but if you are one of the few who has never played it and are interested in the history of video games it is well worth a look. This game has stood the test of time far better than the many clones that soon came after. In fact in 2012 Time Magazine said that it was one of the greatest video games of all time and mentioned how it established the look and feel of later shooters.
