For nostalgia's sake, I was playing Doom 2 last night on my 360. That game hearkens back to a day when games were hard. There's much less hand-holding in Doom and Doom 2 than in modern games. I like that.... until I get completely stuck. Then I hate it.
But I LOVE the BFG 9000. First, it has the funniest name of any video game gun, and secondly, Doom gives you just the right firepower at the right time in game. There's something downright satisfying about the blob of luminescent green death that shoots from the BFG. So this post is a tribute to the BFG 9000. What's your favorite game gun and why?
