When it comes to explosive action, cool sci-fi tech, and atomizing netherworld nasties with lasers, missiles, and big bullets, few names come to mind other than the DooM franchise. This first-person shooter (FPS) is considered one of the pioneers in 3D graphics, networked multiplayer, and player mod support.
Raze Hell in DooM
You start the game as an unnamed space marine sent to a facility where a science experiment has gone wrong. All the mates you’re with are dead, and you’re the one standing in the way of a demonic invasion of Earth. The mission is pretty straightforward: shoot and blast any demon and minion back to Hell.
People love the game so much that DooM became a series of games after its 1993 release. Other media using United Aerospace Corporation’s files and lore are made. There are novels, comic books, a board game, and a couple of films made between 1995 and 2019.
