Check out this trip down memory lane with id Software


5:00 PM on 06.30.2014



I was barely old enough to game in 1993, let alone take trips to id Software for office tours. That's why I'm so jealous of one Dan Linton, owner of a wildly successful BBS known as Software Creation, who took a trip down to Texas to visit the studio in its relative infancy back then and recorded some footage of John Romero playing Doom for 21 minutes, pre-sound effects, as well as some additional deathmatch play with Shawn Green, another id Software employee at the time.

The video also has footage of additional employees Jay Wilbur, Romero himself, Dave Taylor, Sandy Petersen, and Adrian Carmack with Bobby Prince around to aid in music creation and sound effect work.

It's an interesting sight to behold, given the fact that Doom is one of my favorite games of all time, and seeing footage like this is a relative rarity these days. If you want to see the early Doom footage, skip around to 9:36 and sit back and relax while your mind wanders all the way back to the golden age of shooters.

We can't see the new Doom yet, but it sounds like a return to form

Bethesda said its big reveal of Doom -- that is in fact "Doom," not "Doom 4" -- at QuakeCon would be for attendees only, not for us Internet ne'er-do-wells, but I still watched the QuakeCon stream like a sucker, anyway. When ...more

Upcoming Doom sneak peek is only meant for QuakeCon attendees

The teaser trailer for Doom (4) didn't do much for me, but I'm looking forward to the long-awaited reveal. We'll see more of the game at this year's QuakeCon, set to take place in Dallas, Texas from July 17 - 20, or so I thou...more

The classic Cyberdemon receives a next-gen makeover in this Doom teaser

Oh, sweet Cyberdemon. It's been far too long since I danced with thee. And now you're looking so very...refreshed. You've had a facelift. Even though you're a little bit older than the last time we met, you're still just as ...more

Happy 20th Anniversary, Doom

On December 10, 1993, Doom was released. Although it was far from the first FPS game I ever played (I was rocking Catacomb and Wolfenstein already), it had a profound effect on me, as I tirelessly spent hundreds of hours...more

DOOM returns to Xbox Live Arcade

After disappearing from Xbox Live for the longest time, id Software's classic DOOM has returned under the watchful eye of Bethesda. You can nab it for 400 Microsoft Points (Edit: I had said this was down from 800 Points, but ...more

Payday: The Heist is free on Steam today

Destiny has so much lore, it's sad that almost none of it is in the game

In-game, Destiny's story is probably the worst part of the experience. Constant Dinklebot "defense" missions and short exposes during load screens are hardly what I'd call a narrative, but that's what Bungie ended up giving u...more

If you happen to have EA Access, I highly recommend playing Garden Warfare

I keep forgetting about EA Access. Perhaps you can say the same. It's a $4.99-per-month service for Xbox One that gives unlimited access to select games from you-know-who along with other perks like early demos. One of my fav...more
