Required Reading: Doom Wiki

Required Reading is a new column which I have instituted in order to make my blog more interesting and hopefully expose my readership, limited though it may be, to some good reading at the same time. Most featured items will be online, though every once in a while I may recommend a good old-fashioned book.

Doom, the definitive FPS by Id Software, has been a favorite game of mine ever since I first played the SNES version way back in the ancient days of 1996. Granted, this was a full three years after the game’s initial release for the PC back in 1993, but I’ve never been timely about that sort of thing. My interest in gaming, as I have previously mentioned, has been on-again-off-again, but over the years Doom and it’s aptly named sequel Doom II have been cornerstones of my video game career.

Given my status as a blatant Doom fanboy, it can hardly be a surprise that I have frittered away many hours reading one article after the next on the Doom Wiki. The Doom Wiki is a comprehensive guide to all things Doom-related, from details and specs of the original game engine to an exhaustive list of Doom source ports. As you might have guessed from the title, the Doom Wiki is identical in format to Wikipedia. Pick a topic and get reading–you just might learn something.
