Doom was a famous first person shooter demon hunting game series started by “id Software”” in 1993 for MS-DOS. An unnamed marine went on a mission to hunt down invading demons that were divulged from hell with the variety of weapons, ammunition and armor. That game was really exciting to play due to its fast-paced missions and monstrous bosses to fight against. Unlocking doors with skull shaped keys and moving on to further levels with more creative ways was a really good gaming experience. Getting keys was not always easy, you had to make your way through a bunch of demons. Doom series continued its journey with “Doom II Hell on Earth” in 1994 with expansion packs in 1995 and then “Final Doom” in 1996.
However, it seemed with the passage of time, Doom series lost its success tray in the mid of 1990’s due to its lack of adapting new technological trends in gaming. Few of many reasons could have been the lack of enhancements in graphics, repetitive game content and no changes in the gameplay. But yet again, we saw the graph of feat of Doom series again after launching “Doom 3” in 2004 and then “Doom” title as reboot version of the first title in 2016. Rebooted version was published by Bethesda Softworks, and the game was launched for various platforms. Doom reboot was a success because of its graphical enhancements and horror element rising tenfold.
