Doom Is Now Old Enough To Drink

This week, classic PC shooter Doom turned 21. So if you see someone in green slide up next to you at a bar and scream RIP AND TEAR, buy the guy a drink.

To celebrate, John Romero, one of the key figures involved in the creation of the game, shared heaps of artwork from Doom's development. You can check it out below. The collection includes everything from pencil-drawn sketches to animation tests. Most of it is pretty rough, but then, so was 1993.

You can read more about how Doom was made in this interview Stephen did with Romero and John Carmack last year. And if you want to read more, and haven't read Masters of Doom yet, get on it.

    I don't understand why it couldn't drink three years ago when it reached the legal drinking age?

      Doom 3 was made in the US in which the drinking age is 21 there.

    Ah America with your silly age restrictions. You can own a gun but you can't drink.

    I remember playing this as a 9 or 10 year old until 2 in the morning (holidays, of course), getting increasingly terrified and adrenaline fueled.

    Good times, good times indeed.

    A little heads up for mobile would have been nice... something like "Warning - Article contains 8 Billion images"

    I like how they modelled the pinky on the Dilophosaurus toy from Jurassic Park.

    "So if you see someone in green slide up next to you at a bar and scream RIP AND TEAR, buy the guy a drink."

    Yeah, sure. If the guy in green was either a baby or toddler at the time of the game's release.

    I wish Ubisoft would have made ACU like this.
