While I love old school games, I admit that lately I've been ignoring my roots in the gaming world. So I almost squealed in joy when I saw DOOM on Xbox arcade. The game that jump-started most of the modern shooters today, and even then surpasses near all of them.
Playing the unnamed fearless space marine, you are forced to fight undead marines, aliens, and and Hell itself, in order to survive. No matter your religious view, killing Hell is an idea that no man finds I appealing.
The first night I bought the game I stayed up til 4:30 just playing and yelling at my tv. Needless to say my roommates were pissed. Until I told them it was DOOM. Then they yelled with me.
Seriously though, it's a great game. The original shooter, if you ask me. Go buy it, and when you do....
I'll see you in Hell.
