Let’s Play Doom 3

Following the rise of 3D gaming environments due to the ready availability of high performance 3D-enabled video cards, Doom graduated from simple polygons and sprite technology to completely immersive environments in Doom 3. I had this game in mind when I built a new PC around an nvidia GeForce 6800 Ultra video card in 2004.

Doom 3 takes place on Mars in the future. A scientist experiments with the occult and unfortunately releases demonic forces that you have to defeat in order to survive. This was the first game that I enjoyed the exhilaration and fear of while playing in the dark.

I am a professor of English at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY whose teaching includes composition and technical communication, and research focuses on 20th/21st-century American culture, science fiction, neuroscience, and digital technology.
