zeronyne Posted July 31, 2004 Share Posted July 31, 2004 December 10, 1993. I was 25 and working probably the most miserable job I've ever had that related to music. I was depressed and had no prospects for the future. Doom was released that day. I had not anticipated it, or anything...I just happened to be in the right store at the right time. And it changed my outlook on life and I found a new vocation. It was the most immersive experience to date on a computer. And it was kind of scary, too. Remember, at that time, most computers were displaying 256 colors max. It was hard to be immersive and scary. Well, Doom 3 is going to be out in a few days, and like its two predecessors, it stands to redefine its genre. It's going to buck the trend of online multiplayer and concentrate on the single player experience. Oh, and the graphics are pretty good, too. I am building a new PC specifically to play this (and run the new Gigasampler ). The specs are steep. We have come so far in 10 years. check out the screenshots of Doom 2 and 3: http://rhee.net/doom23.jpg "For instance" is not proof. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
