Classic Goodness: John Romero Plays Through Doom

If you're not familiar, Devs Play is a new YouTube series where a classic game's designer plays through his or her game.

The narration is always interesting and even eye-opening and the latest run-through is essential if you're a veteran FPS fan.

Here, industry icon and id Software co-founder John Romero plays through Doom. He sheds some light on a great many things, such as the origin of the horseshoe level layout you see in the first level (and you also see in the sequel and other future FPSs). Don't forget that Romero went on to work on the likes of Heretic and Quake, two more shooters that helped define and redefine the genre. Because of this history, we can forgive him Daikatana...

By the way, the next episode, set to air on January 27, will feature Tim Schafer and Psychonauts, one of my personal favorites. Can't wait for that one!

This sounds great. I will be checking it out.

As for Tim Schafer that will be a must see. Am I a fan? Hell yes. I have am autographed Psychonauts post at home on the wall. Would be nice to here his thoughts if there were ideas at the time for a sequel. Maybe an update on a possible HD version of the original.

One can always hope.

Keep playing!

Last thing I saw they've actually managed to create a version of Doom that runs on the display of a printer.
