Escape From Mount Stupid: id Software
Doom, Quake, Rage, and more! Everything you ever wanted to know about id Software in one handy video. Presented by Danny O'Dwyer.
played doom back in 94 still playing it today have got it for almost every console ive had including snes and gameboy advance or maybe it was the ds i cant rember.
id is awesome, or it's certainly created a few awesome fps games from my past, but I don't think Rage is quite up there.
I didn't think Doom 3 was quite up there either to be honest.
In fact, for me personally I think things slowly started dropping off after Quake.
They'e always made very good fps games but I think Wolfenstien 3D, Doom 1/2/etc and the original Quake were them at their very best.
Mind you, even Quake started one negative trend that continues to this day with it's mostly brown/gray textures...
Anyone remember when ID made games that were not garbage corridor shooters? OOPS sorry. anyone remember when ID made games that weren't Rage?
great video article, you should have talked more on the Rage game, i am sure that much of the fellow players did not tried it yet. My favorite: Doom 1
yeah I couldnt believe it when that guy said RTC Wolfenstein was only average! the game was a trip! it was long, graphics were excellent (for the day) and it played good, story was cool-remember the bit at the beggining? "Heinrich-your rein of terror must end..."...that was cool...
the only way some gamers could cope with the horror of it all was to modify the gun mounted flashlight to look like a hello kitty logo .... aww thats better ... *unknown noise*....ahhhhhhhhhhh....guns blazing........ loved that part :)
I don't know if this was mentioned already, but Unreal Tournament offered much of the same ideas as Quake 3, and it's release date was, to my knowledge, a few days prior.
Doom is the BEST id software game, hell, its the best game of all time!!!! Rage was OK, some flaws are there, but damn, it uses id tech 5 engine *_* cant wait for Doom4 =)
I miss the modem handshake sound.....haha. Where is my 33.6. My favorite ID game is wolfenstein. Great show!
Im so upset return to castle wolfenstien only got a "there was the average.." i loved that game, up until half life 2 i used to play it after i completed whatever game i'd saved up and bought that month because it was AWESOME!
Favourite id game would probably be Doom 3 for many reasons. The nostalgic feeling of seeing old Doom enemies, and being the first Survival Horror game I played. Having said that, I did have an awesome time playing RAGE. Shame it wasn't better recieved.
I wouldn't really call PC gaming before Doom "all about solitaire and minesweeper". We had gems like Dune II and Wasteland.
Thought Rage was excellent, wish they'd hurry up with an expansion pack or sequel, there's very little ID can do wrong imo which is probably a good thing given the eternity they make us wait between games
Hey this is just an old video re-titled! And "Escape from Mount Stupid!?" I can't believe this is what they went with! I saw @dannyodwyer talking about this on twitter yesterday, but I thought he was "bluffing." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=muEnLlycOn4#t=1m13s
that's why i love good games today that most people underestimate. even games rated under 5. why? when i think what games i've played when i was a kid, i can only hope for a great playtime. but we must not let our guard down, cause once we tell developers they do great jobs they'll stop progressing.
Very wrong. That, I believe, actually may go to XS, released in 1996 or 1997. And that's only if you don't count Spectre, which predates Doom.
But, well, you're entitled to your "opinion".
and they need to bring back fast paced multi-player. this reality based multi-player is getting boring.
@ashleyobrien it was awesome! the occult setting and themes were brilliant!
