is without a doubt, one of the most influential games of all time. DOOM
helped the still-fledgling FPS genre find its footing and the unique way in which DOOM
was marketed, with a massive push as "shareware", helped lay the groundwork for today's "free-to-play" titles. Now you can relive the era of the floppy disk thanks to this week's release of Doom 3: BFG Edition
Not only does Doom 3: BFG Edition
come with Doom 3
, its expansion pack and brand new content, but it also includes the XBLA versions of DOOM
and Doom II: Hell on Earth
. I'll let the launch trailer show you, rather then just tell you about what else it has up its sleeves:
Take note for those interested in the achievements, as Doom 3: BFG
only has 600 Gamerscore associated with it. The additional 400 GS comes from playing the two previous titles, which will not stack with the downloadable XBLA versions.
Regardless, Doom 3
looks amazing and is available right now in North America and this Friday in Australia.
