Video games history – RetroAhoy: Doom [video]


Say what you want, but what Ahoy does given meaning to the life of a gamer. It puts you in a spot where you can understand games like never before, where you can take a glance at the history of games, at the ever evolving process of level creation, at techniques used to immerse you in a virtual world which contains more real life elements than you’d like to know.

Ahoy it is.

In the video from above you will learn why the video game called DOOM beat Wolfenstein to the punch when it first came out and why DOOM has so many elements of our real life like music styles, ideas, tropes, minor suggestions here and there. Or you can look at it from the technical standpoint where you see more colors being used, needing a 386 machine with at least 4 MB of RAM, and having nicer texture and a better 3D experience.

No matter on what side of the gaming spectrum you are, watching Ahoy’s videos will make you an informed gamer. It will teach you why games are art and how you are enjoying art without even knowing you do that. Watch the full documentary and then go over to his channel and watch the other videos. Gaming will not be the same again. It will be better!
