    Add voiced commentary to your channel and start streaming to, you can make decent dosh and since your kinda edgy you'll be very popular with kids these days. You may be thinking kids don't like retro and the types of people who watch that kind of media are a small niche., That is true but theirs many young millennials such as myself willing to watch ravings of a baby boomer. you are the kind of people that introduced me to RPG's and Strategy games.
    Is that a JoJo reference?

    I remember my first times playing Doom (I was like six I guess), the pistol had this VERY LAME ASS sound like pew pew pew. Absofuckinglutely pathetic.

    The shotgun sounded great, tho.

    I had a Cyrix 166+. I remember all the gaming magazines saying it was the best deal I could ever make. I thought I was so smart, thinking I was having the best deal of my life.

    For fuck sake. You should have seen my face when I replaced my Voodoo1 with a brand new Voodoo2 and gained 0 FPS because of that shitty CPU.

    Pics of the wife so we know if trading her for the Cyrix was a good deal or not.

    Good thing no one uses the pistol after the first stage of an episode.

    The fists get more use.

    Those Cyrix CPUs had terrible FPU performance too so in reality they were not suited to play 3D games like Quake.

    Thankfully, there wasn't much of a performance problem on both Q1 & Q2. More graphical intensives games, however, well...
    The Cyrix 166+ was also the machine I had that crashed the most. I remember buying FF7 and waiting six months to be able to play it, because it required a patch.

    Fun fact: Cyrix 6x86 CPUs were recognized by the system as a 486, which led to other problems that could only be worked around with a "Pentium Emulator" (a .COM file that lied to apps that checked what kind of CPU you had)

    Still, I had a lot of fun with it. Duke 3D, Q1&2, Tomb Raider, Pod, Diablo, Daggerfall, Baldur's Gate, Fallout , Starcraft, were all games I discovered on this shitty computer.

    Pretty sure one of dad's first comps had pc speaker, I remember playing Doom in... 1996, 1997 I think, and those sounds are very familiar.
    I also remember I always got stuck in Doom2 M2 because of that part where you have to get the red key. I didn't know fast run was a thing, and there was no jumping, so I could never get to the other side.

    I think I or my brother eventually figured out how to get there by 1999 or 2000 I think. By then I had finished the first Doom, tho I have no idea how we had a full copy back then, because I remember me being stuck with the shareware for a while in the early 2000s until I figured out that pirating was a thing. I also remember finishing Heretic at the time, too. Good times, how little I knew of things back then, everything was so new lol. Good times.

    When I pirated, I remember thinking "Hey, the game sounds different from what I remember".

    Also, I thought "Doom 95" was a new game. Lets just say kid TBS was kinda disappointed when my brother downloaded it for me and it was just Doom ported to Windows 95.
