The graphic cards that were available then might only give you some sort of incremental graphic proficiency and versatility, but they did not come anywhere near the tremendous amount of colors, polygon shapes as well as graphics versatility that you would get from even a low end graphic booster card. No way, no how.
Movie & The Game
The Storyline & The Plot
Doom has really turned first person shooter games upside down. If you remember back in the 1990's, the first person shooter game was strictly a PC game. You have a character holding a gun and you just move around from room to room shooting everything you come across. Very basic, very automated, and a lot of fun.Learn More
But it also can get boring really quickly. There's really not much nuance to it. Also, the graphics left a lot to be desired. It's no surprise that early titles like Castle Wolfenstein, while initially popular, soon dropped off a cliff in terms of fan appreciation and attention. It seemed like the first person shooter game was doomed, pardon the pun, to the same fate.
Despite the initial hype and heat as well as fan attention, once people manage to get around the game map and truly figure out the game or, better yet, master the game like the back of their hands, they drop it like a hot potato. Well, that all changed when Doom hit the scene.
The Most Asked Questions
But Doom was able to work with such limited hardware technology to really enable us to peek into the amazing possibilities of a 3D first person shooter. That’s when the FPS genre in video games really blew up, and you have to really give a tremendous amount of credit to Doom for making this happen.
As I mentioned above, Castle Wolfenstein has no shortage of fans. But the problem is, it’s a very limited game and it really did not do itself any favors because it stuck to the rather limited nature of the hardware technology at the time it was released. Not surprisingly, it got big, then it was quickly forgotten. Not so with Doom. Even to this very day, people are still talking about Doom.
There are all sorts of Doom merchandise: Doom action figures, T-shirts, stickers, you name it. There was even a Doom movie that was made, and I’m just talking about the official movie. I’m not talking about the countless fan fiction movies created out there, ranging from 30-second animation to something a little bit longer and more involved.
