I’m pretty psyched.
I remember walking past a computer shop way back in '92(?) and glancing inside - and being transfixed by the image on a 15" monitor about ten metres away. HOLY CRAP WTF went my brain as I was compelled to investigate, and was rewarded with my first experience of a truly immersive game with atmosphere to burn. The fact that it was totally freakin badass was icing on the cake. Many, many hours were subsequently spent in DOOM, DOOM 2, and my all-time fave, Quake. ID was god to me.
Then they started fucking it up with Quake 2, and I was sad. DOOM 3 was kinda okay, but it sort of missed the mark for me and the end was so stupidly difficult I never finished it. But those first numbers, I played through like half a dozen times each over the years, latterly jazzed up with more modern engines to make my trips down memory lane actually tolerable to 21st century eyes (can’t remember what the term for that is; it’s not ‘porting’ IIRC). Sadly, no later port of DOOM could match the original’s MIDI tunes…
So much awesome. And I tell you what - this trailer reminds me more of the feel of DOOM and DOOM 2 more than DOOM 3. That’s a mighty fine thing. Gonna have to upgrade my machine one of these days.
