I played DOOM. I played DOOM II. Both games were simply tremendous. I’ve repeatedly tried to play DOOM 3 since getting an Xbox copy of the game years ago, but…I…can’t. Oh believe me, I’ve tried repeatedly, but I have a really hard time getting past the game’s first stage because it’s just too much. Too scary, too stressful, too dismal, too everything.
