Nikos Deja Vu - DOOM (the computer game)

DOOM

DOOM was a milestone in the first-person shooter genre and it has been released by id Software in 1993. It was available for many platforms. I know that I missed a lot of secrets and so on, but it was several years ago I played it the last time, and I just wanted to show the basic gameplay. So, I hope you like this video anyway :-D As you can notice, the music may sound different from what you used to hear. Well, in this video, it is the original Adlib/SoundBlaster music using YM3812/YMF262 chip instructions (also known as OPL2). Later, after Windows 95 came out, most sound cards used wavetable synthesizers instead, so the music may vary vastly among each other. I guess, people who played this in the early years can confirm this :-)

What was too advanced for those "ancient" PC times was the music scores behind of the DOOM series games. I don't know and I don't care WHO made WHO or WHO made WHATEVER, cause here there were a lot of discussions and a lot of arguments, even in now days, but below enjoy the main DOOM theme played by Metallica!!! Enjoy'em! Both...
