Doom Latest News - PC

Game Description:Taking no credit away from its genre predecessor, Wolfenstein 3-D, DOOM was the breakthrough game of 1993, and the more influential of id's first- person shooters. Its arsenal of powerful guns (namely the shotgun and BFG), intense level of gore and perfect balance of adrenaline-soaked action and exploration kept this gamer riveted for years. Initially a shareware product on PC, DOOM also offered the first multiplayer death- matches via LAN. Doom is creepy, atmospheric, with a sense of impending dread that always seems to be just around the next corner or behind that door. There couldn't have been a better name for the game.
