Legendary first person shooter, Doom, turned 21 yesterday. The game that arguably led to the current generation of graphically intensive and fast paced FPS games, was launched back in 1993. In celebration, John Romero, one of the creators of the game, has been sharing a number of behind the scenes images through his Twitter account. Apart from taking us on a trip down memory lane, the images also provide a glimpse into the world of game development in 1993.

Over the years, FPS games have graduated to a whole new level but Doom, and some other games in its generation, are still remembered as the pioneers. In fact, Romero himself worked on games like Wolfenstein 3D and Quake, which are often mentioned alonside Doom. In 2005, the game was also adapted into a movie (that ultimately disappointed), by the same name, starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

For the uninitiated (shame on you!), Doom is a first person shooter video game series that follows the exploits of a space marine working for the Union Aerospace Corporation (UAC) and fighting for survival against tons of demons and undead creatures. Raise your glasses to the hours of pixelated gaming fun, as Doom is now old enough to drink!
