DooM: The legendary game that made FPS games a mainstream genre
14 July 2005 | by harsawaSee all my reviews

Back in the early nintey's FPS games were usually just bland walk in the same halls a billion times and shoot things. Then a small group made a game along with Apogee called "Wolfenstein 3D" it had texture mapping, and people loved it, but it still never got it's claim to fame. Then, one year later, on December 5th 1993 "DooM" was finished by ID Software, exactly 5 days later, they released the shareware along with the final game. The reviews were all claiming at how wonderful it was, and almost every gamer in the world wanted to play it. DooM redefined the genre, from underground shareware games, to full blown action games. The game has lost none of it's impact today, it's maze like corridors, horrific demons, gore and death everywhere, all of it is still an amazingly fun experience. Doom will always be one of the best FPS games ever, the community is still strong even 11 years later!!!!
