    Anyone remember this? Nearly 25 years later, I still can't get those 3 cheat codes out of my head. IDDQD, IDKFA, IDSPOSPOPD. Guess some things as a child never leave you.

    Doom 2 was good as well but they ruined the franchise with Doom 3.

    Doom 3 was pretty rubbish.

    Cheat codes....what are they exactly? ;)

    Doom 3 was overhyped and could never live up to expectations - if you revisit it it actually offers some pleasant ( and not so pleasant ) suprises.

    Doom custom WADs were an obsession of mine for a while!

    Man I don't know why but I just fired that old game up and have been replaying it. Brings me back.

    I totally thought I replied to this thread a while back.

    After Doom 2, I think Quake held the throne for a long time, then Quake 2 until Unreal and Unreal Tournament came out. Those were the best days of PC gaming albeit dial-up connections and the rarity of DSLs.

    Today, I'm playing 3D shooters on a console unfortunately :(

    The very start of Doom 3 was awesome, and there were some nice touches but the on whole yeah, it was tat! Were the surroundings the same ALL the way through? I got bored!

    Who played Hexen? It was a Doom engine game that tried to add some D&D flavor.

    Also Rise of the Triads, Descent, Dark Forces...damn I wasted a lot of time in shooters!!!

    Wow Hexen, a name I haven't heard in nearly 20 years. I do remember Descent too, that was an odd but cool game nonetheless.

    Still have my Hexen T-shirt and poster I won on their webpage from a contest. I loved Descent, played the hell out of that one on my 10-baseT home network back in the day.

    lol. I used to have "LAN parties" in my basement with a few friends on my 100-Base T network about 10-15 years ago. As geeky as it was, it was a lot of fun.

    Just last night I spoke with an old friend and we talked about meeting up sometime soon and playing a few games of Starcraft together again, "LAN party" style, and bring the wives together so they leave us alone.
