Doom is 20

M_DOOM_20

The best computer game of all time turned two decades old today.

Yep. The big two oh.

Doom is still played and modded by a large, still-thriving community, and it is still as fun as it was when it was uploaded to the university of Wisconsin’s FTP server and distributed worldwide. It’s still my favorite game ever.

Thank you so much, John Romero, John Carmack, Adrian Carmack, Dave Taylor, Tim Willits, Kevin Cloud, Sandy Petersen, American McGee, Shawn Green, Jay Wilbur, Paul Radek, Robert Prince, Mike Abrash, and Gregor Punchatz of id Software for creating the greatest game ever released.

Fellow Doomers, let’s celebrate! 😀 Here’s to at least another 10 steady years of Dooming.
