A Brief History of Doom

Video games have come a long way through the years and are way different than how they used to be only 2 decades ago. The whole idea, platform, experience of gaming has changed through the course of time. It would not be wrong to say that the video games are so much more realistic now with the developers being so advanced these days that they focus on every tiny bit of the game and make sure that the game being developed is fit on all aspects that the developer can touch. However if we go back in time in the beginning of 1990s, the way gaming developers used to think a lot differently than how they do today and keeping in mind that particular period and the limited technology that was there at the developers disposal, one team came up with the game that would reshape the history of gaming, the name of the game was Doom.

At the time, no other platform or developer came up with such an idea and Doom took the gaming world by storm in 1993 when it was launched. Fighting demons and evil entities, crossing different levels, the game became an instant hit. Seeing the success of their first launch the developers of the game came back with an extended version the following year and the new Doom 2 by the end of 1994. The video game saw a record number of sales in two years and was on everybody's wish list. The third title of the video game was launched after quite a long time in 2004 after a game of almost 10 years and after more than a decade since 2004, a latest version titled simply by the name of DOOM is being launched in 2016 now.

The developer John D. Carmack came up with the new 3d game engine for the game that was to change the gaming experience back in 1992 along with the help of his team. When it came to the game design, a major part was played by the science fiction action film aliens and the horror film Evil Dead 2, it was a perfect match as the game was based upon the demons and the evil entities that had to be dealt with. Tom Hall was the genius behind the amazing storyline and the overall game design made back in the time. These amazing developers along with their brilliant team joined their brains together to come up with the master piece of a game that revolutionised the gaming world.

With the latest launch of the new version of DOOM, I wish for it to do the best in the gaming market because of what important role the game has played and what it has done for the gaming industry but I fear that it will not be able to love up to its expectations and be the kind of amazing hit it as when it was first launched back in 1993. One reason for this being that today there are so many variety of other games of the same genre that are available in the market that it would be hard for the DOOM team to overcome them and come up with something different and amazing.
