First-person shooters

Doom is a series of first-person shooters created by id Software. Each part focuses on a nameless marine acting on behalf of Union Aerospace Corporation (UAC) and fighting against hordes of demons and the undead. The first part of the series, released in 1993, is considered to be the pioneer of FPS (first-person shooter) games, although other titles representing the genre have been created before. Nevertheless, Doom was one of the first personal computer games to offer 3D graphics, three-dimensional mobility, support for player modifications and multiplayer networking. 1)

Doom Was Once The Most Installed Software

Windows 95 was the second most-installed piece of software on computers in 1995; DOOM was the first. 2)

Guns Modeled After Toys

As the group was running on a strict spending plan, they couldn't manage the cost of genuine firearms to model their plans after, so they made a trip to Toys R Us to buy Nerf weapons and different toys. Clearly, the firearms were reskinned from their unique, splendid, and beautiful appearances to coordinate with the game's more dull and smudged tone. 3)

Gabe Newell

The team assembled by Microsoft to create the Windows 95 port of Doom was headed by Gabe Newell, co-founder of Valve. Valve is known for creating Half-Life, Portal, and many other games. 4)
