I remember that titan fight.

Makes me want to find my old disc, get the gfx mods installed and have at it. Man...I hope Rage delivers some old school fun.

I used to spend hours trying to guess the correct answers so I could play Leisure Suit Larry. I was about 6 years old.

We ran that game on a 486.

lol oh yah! Well my first computer had 640k ram, dos 3.3, and an EGA graphics card with a whopping 16 colors. And it was a "turbo" 10mhz 8088.

Ran StarFlight decently enough. Which btw was a great game and without it we may not have had star control 2. Also a great game.

I remember this, except I always just played Shareware. Never did buy the full version until many years later. Anyone remember the big box with Doom shareware on floppy disks?

I actually joined this forum more or less because of Doom 3. I had just upgraded my system with a 6800GT and wanted to read up on tweaking the game settings. It's funny because even though Doom 3 was pretty good, I can barely stand to play it anymore. The wait before it came out was killing me though.

I got doom 95 in the cd that had "1000 games!!!" that I brought when I was around 12. Even though it was around 2001 I was still stuck with a pentium 2 with a 4mb dedicated graphics card. This was the best of any game I could play and I loved it to death. I would put on a pair of headphones, pop in a slayer cd as my own personal soundtrack and waste an hour or so.

I brought doom 3 for my xbox and my xbox 360 but never finished it until this year on my computer. It held up awesome after seven years.

I ve tempered my excitement for rage only because I can't afford the $59.99 price tag.

Doom 3 sucked. Same stuff, room after room, stage after stage.

Know what I remember? When games use to come out PERFECT.

N64, heck any console before internet got big. Games HAD to be good. Now devs take the internet update as an excuse to ship a unfinished game.

I still play through the original Doom on a regular basis. Use the Zdoom source port with up/down looking and jumping disabled of course. It's nice because it supports Doom 2, Heretic and Hexen as well.

Doom 3 was the first game I got after I bought my 6600 GT with my mad internship money.

I liked it. It was a bit too long and samey after awhile, but the creepy atmosphere was great. I think the sound work in the game is some of the best I've heard. I do think the subsequent games on that engine were better overall, but that shouldn't take anything away from Doom 3 itself.
