We guess you can consider this your Friday slice of fun, even though it’s a few days old now. This brilliant video highlights just how the first person shooter genre has changed massively since the golden days of Doom, distilling everything into bite-sized, signposted chunks. A witty comment, perhaps, on Call of Duty.
If you’re unfamiliar with Doom then this clearly isn’t aimed at you, but if you’re a gamer raised on id’s coding prowess rather than Infinity Ward’s, then this will have you in both stitches (it’s hysterically funny) and tears (as you remember how great shooters used to be). Some of the jokes are brilliant, the Achievement gag probably one of the best but we’ll not spoil the rest of them.
It’s available to play too – for free – assuming you have the original Doom II game for PC. Check the link for Mediafire downloads but really, just watching the video on YouTube is probably enough to get most of the gags.
