"From the developers that basically created the first person shooter genre and let you live out your fantasy of murdering robot Hitler comes the series so violent and satanic, it warped your fragile little child mind: DOOM."

Doom is a game series featured on Top 5 Friday and Honest Game Trailers.

Game Information

Doom is a series of first-person shooter games developing primarily by id Software. The series focuses on the exploits of an unnamed space marine (aka "Doomguy") operating under the auspices of Union Aerospace Corporation (UAC), who fights hordes of demons, undead, and other monsters from Hell to survive. The series has been overseen by three publishers, the current being Bethesda Softworks since 2010.

Considered to be one of the pioneering first-person shooter games, Doom introduced to IBM-compatible computers features such as 3D graphics, third-dimension spatiality, networked multiplayer gameplay, and support for player-created modifications with the Doom WAD format. Since the release of Doom in 1993, the series has spawned numerous sequels, expansion packs, and a film.
