Awww, yeah, bitches, we're kickin' it oldschool here. Back when all a game needed to be good was chainsaw, cybernetic goat monsters with rocket launchers, pissed-off Moral Guardians, a gun that melts everything in the room, heavy metal MID Is, and poorly-aging pixellated graphics.
Not that I would know. I only first played it in 2004. :P
P.S.: Play with Oblige and let's trade our particularly cool/lulzy/scary levels.
...2004? Heretic! I was playin' this shit back in '96, when I was fuckin' 7! XD
Still good, though.
I still hop on zdaemon once in a while; there's one server I know of that's constantly running a Nintendo Hard co-op wad, and it rules.
You use Z Daemon and not Skulltag?
Also, Action Doom 2 is lulzy. Unfortunately Scuba Steve is stingy and won't release the bonus content for free. Fuck that, I want zombies.
Also, anyone played Harmony?
I could never get Skulltag to work, which is a shame, because zdaemon is ugly as shit.
What OS did you use?
Vista. Odds are, I fucked somethin' up. *shrug*
Your problem is self-evident.
When d'ya think someone else will get in this thread?
Woolie Wool has a cacodemon for an avatar. He will come.
Groggy is also brethern. I know we have at least a COUPLE others around here.
It'd be pretty bitchin' if we could get some multiplayer going, wouldn't it? I'm not holdin' my breath, though.
You're lucky bastards. I first played this in... 2008, I think. And first liked it in 2009.
I play on Skulltag, OPL for Doom 1 and FMOD for Doom 2.
P.S.: ALIENS TC IS AWESOME SHIT.
What are those latter two sourceports, Muzo?
I... Just have the shareware on this computer. I beat Inferno when i was 8 though.
You bastards have gotten me nostalgic. I've always said that the original doom is the best video game ever made, no exceptions. Nowadays "Guy with an assault rifle" compromises 98% of all first person shooter obstacles. Lame. Whatever happened to VARIETY man? And ridiculously over the top cartoony gore? And CHAINSAWS? Last FPS i played with a chainsaw was Urban Chaos Riot Response. And that was actually a buzzsaw.
Most modern game's BF Gs are wimpy. Even the Redeemer isn't satisfyingly fire-and-forget enough.
Anyone got any fav weapon mods?
They're not source ports. Sorry for the confusion. They are the sound settings within Skulltag. Oldschool OPL sucks for Doom 2, FMOD is similar to MS GM but less terrible, lol. Doom 1, OTOH is awesome in OPL.
"Badly aging graphics"? Bah!
The BFG 9000 was the best BFG. That is all.
It doesn't really count as a weapon mod, since it's part of the whole wad, but the one I mentioned earlier? Switches things up so all ammo is infinite, and your pistol is replaced with an SMG that fires in three-shot bursts.
Infinite ammo sounds overpowered, but trust me, you will fuckin' need it.
@Muso: Oooooh, sound sound sound.
@Kerr: Okay, "badly aging" maybe was too harsh.
I stand corrected. Higher resolution does wonders for clearing up the close-range pixellation.
Also, the first time I played with fast monsters enabled and encountered a pinky demon, I shat bricks.
@Blackmoon: So is this like Hell Revealed? Worse?
Also, DEUS VULT II WILL GIVE YOU BALLS.

It saddens me that the only FPS with an arsenal that even came close to rivaling doom's was Turok which is also really old.
Cerebral bore, hell yeah.
The graphics in the original Doom are 100% better than in any graphical overhaul I've seen. Except for the backgrounds, Doomsday backgrounds are awesome.
What makes me like Doom is not even the insane arsenal, but the insane speed. The player is simply so damn fast and it changes the game style completely... and that's not taking straferunning into consideration. (I can't straferun well BTW)

@Charlatan: Never played Hell Revealed. Think I should?
@Blackmoon: DO IT. And Hell Revealed II and Deus Vult and Deus Vult II.
I just wanted to talk about how hard E 4 M 2 in Ultimate Doom was on UV. Now with people talking about Hell Revealed, this looks absolutely wimpy now, lol.
Stop trying to kill your friends in horrifying ways, Charlatan!
