We owe a lot to DOOM here at Rely on Horror. It’s a genre-defining game that set a precedent for both horror games and first-person shooters to follow. Noclip, the new YouTube channel by Game Spots‘ Danny O’Dwyer, sets out to show how the iconic IP continues to deliver on its legacy, in a series of documentary videos called DOOM Resurrected.
In the first episode, O’Dwyer delves into the history of id Software and speaks to the team behind this year’s DOOM. We get a closer look at a previous version of the game, a more generic Call of Duty-style project (not-so-affectionately dubbed Call of DOOM) that was ultimately scrapped for lacking the flavor of the original DOOM. It’s a good thing too—we loved the final product so much that we voted it as one of our 2016 Games of the Year (and you can vote for it too)!
