Gameplay Gold.

This game changed my life. If it were not for this game, I would be CTO of some Fortune 50 company right now, instead of shakin' it Boss, I'm shakin' it.

I love this game. I even wrote levels.  Memories, misty water colour/color memories. Tearing up, have to stop. . .  

Inspired by DadGuy.

ah they days when briefly wads referred to levels and skins and not to spit soaked projectiles! Good times.

OMG, I used to play this game without stop. (If I remember correctly in one version I had to kill some vicious dogs onscreen and I started to cry--actually sobbed. I killed a computer dog! Yes, I am pathetic.) :)

P.S. Maybe that was the game--was it called Wolfenstein?

Kate, I did a retrospective a while back, trying to pinpoint what other life I may have had, had I made different decisions at crossroads in my life. I am happy where I am. Money isn't important, People are important.

Sushi, good times indeed. I spent a great deal of today going through emails from 1992. I was looking for my orders for Duke Nukem, Commander Keen, Wolfenstein 3D, and DooM. Found most of them too! Compuserve was good for shopping.

Zed; yes, Wolfenstein 3D is the game you remember. It was by the same coders, but about 18 months prior to DooM.
I played all the Duke Nukems Commander Keens, and Wolfensteins/Spear of Destiny, but DooM had network multiplayer, where you could play against a real person.
I learned a great deal about networking making it all work.
Sooo many memories...

I played Commander Keens as well. I found the entire series online a few years ago and played until my eyes fell out (they're back in now, so it's all good).

And Wolfenstein, yep I totally fell apart on "shooting the attacking dog." Wimpy, I know. Wimpy Zed.

Sans, for whatever part you played in getting Iceland on my Clustrmaps, thank you, thank you, thank you!
