On behalf of everyone here at Bethesda, I’d like to wish a very happy birthday to id Software. Here’s to another 19 years of frags.
My first memory of an id game was watching my neighborhood friend play DOOM, peeking over his shoulder for a quick glimpse at the future of gaming. I wouldn’t actually get to play an id shooter until much later, when I finally put together my first PC — a Voodoo 2-equipped, triangle-crunching monster. I vividly remember playing through those opening minutes of Quake 2, and the intense headache that followed my first taste of real-time 3D graphics. Avatar had nothing on that experience.
So let’s get this party started. Feel free to share your first, or favorite, id-related memories in the comments below.
