Is The World Ready For A New Doom Game?
Today, the Richardson-based video game development company id Software, in conjunction with its homies at Bethesda Softworks (Fallout), will release unto the world a reboot of its iconic Doom game — a project that has been in development hell for at least a decade now, after having originally be conceived as Doom 4, the follow-up to 2003’s disappointing Doom 3.
But I’m not the only one who thinks that id isn’t likely to ever recapture this time around the magic of its seminal 1993 first-person shooter in which players must obliterate the blood-thirsty aliens of Mars. As the below video shows, even kids who’ve never previously heard of that original game can still fuck with with that version heavy.
Not everything needs a reboot, dammit. Let sleeping aliens lie.
