It's been a while since I was into hard-core PC games. In truth, I never really was all into first-person shooters, given the afternoon I spent groaning into my bed in dizziness and nausea after playing the Dark Forces
demo. I would later remind myself of the detrimental effects of FPS games when I set up Descent II
to run on the conference room computer hooked up to the large projector screen at work a few years ago.
I tasted my dinner twice that night.
But when I watched the TechTV's Icons
episode which profiled the Doom
Franchise this morning, I'm suddenly possessed of a somewhat primal urge to download and play the game. When it first came out, the clip I downloaded of two gamers playing it when it came out
was intriguing enough, but the graphics that I saw on the program are pretty phenomenal.
It's a good thing I don't have a fast enough machine to play it, otherwise, with the kick to get back into PC gaming, well, there would go 2005.
