I am Mr. Hoffmann, the grandson of Reinhold Hoffmann and a gamer now since around 1987.
Some of my favourite game series are Mortal Kombat, Borderlands, Tekken, King of Fighters, Monster Rancher, Bust A Groove and basically too many more to count them all.
Beside gaming, I like writing about it and video game culture.
You might have heard or read about http://www.game-art-hq.com a website which features over 15 art collaborations by gamers and is also the home of a growing video game character database.
Currently we have a League of Legends Crossover Project in Progress, are working with Overclocked.Remix on a big tribute for Final Fantasy IX and are mostly expanding the database sector which covers around 1500 video game characters now.

The Beautiful People - A series of blogs where I feature outstanding cosplayers and their works every monday
Beside the artworks, you can also read the personal opinions regarding doom, specific enemies or the complete series of almost all the artists who participated in this art tribute and dedicated their time and talent to make this happen.
Its quite an honor for me to work with them. My own part is just the hosting of the website, writing and designing the articles and organize the whole thing. But the respect belongs to the artists.
Our next and very ambitious anniversary tribute will happen in December 2014 and be about the 20th Anniversary of the good old Playstation. The target is to get around 50-100 different PSX games illustrated including the most popular games like MGS, Crash bandicoot and Tekken 3 but also the not so popular ones like Tomba!, Bust A Groove and Gex 3D.
The artworks for the Doom tribute are almost all in high sizes up to 4k pixels and should be useable for desktop wallpapers etc. If you use them for anything on your own websites etc. please don't forget to add the links to the original artists and their dA galleries.
Question: Did you play the original Doom, and did you play it through?
update, wow! we got a lot support through articles on Eurogamer, Kotaku and over 40 smaller websites from all around the world!
