Am I the only one who, as a child, couldn't walk down a dark hallway without imagining a pink demon chasing behind you? And having to strongly resist the urge to start sprinting towards light? That shit messed me up for years.

I first played Doom when I rented the Super Nintendo version as a kid. It's funny to me because my mom wouldn't let me rent Mortal Kombat because it was "too violent", but we could rent Doom because she didn't know any better. MK got all the controversy, so Doom was fair game.
My all-time favorite DOOM is DOOM II, but I also love the first... AND the third!
A DOOM thread?!? Time for some "DOOM Dialoguing"? Now I have a reason to get into the forums!
I LOVE the old DOOM games. Doom 3 I still like, but... it's not the same feel. Serious Sam is close, but nothing has matched the lightning-fast, circle-strafing goodness that DOOM captured.
My favourite? None of the official releases. Well, Final Doom I suppose (specifically, the TNT: Evilution episode), but that wasn't done by id. All the quality mods were what made it for me. Aliens TC, Batman DOOM, and especially Cyberdreams are amazing.
Yeah Brutal Doom is pretty stupid. Aeons of Death however, is great. It turns Doom into a megamix compilation of every awesome FPS from the 90's. And it even feels vaguely RPGish, with the randomized enemies and weapons.
