doom vr gameFor readers old enough to remember its launch in 1993 when it was released it immediately became legendary. Now we wouldn’t use this word frivolously … DOOM earned it. It really was stunning for its time, turning up the ratchet on FPS games and helping pioneer 3D environments for shooters. For those unaware of DOOM you basically play as an unnamed Marine who has to fight his way through multiple levels of increasingly hard foes armed with an assortment of weapons.

So now with the advent of VR headsets from the likes of Oculus Rift and Vive you can now experience DOOM in virtual reality .. and it still makes you jump! Granted, it’s hard to compare this with the new FPS horror games such as Dreadhalls but that’s like comparing the original Mario on the Gameboy to Mario on the 3DS; however they are both classics in their own right.
