I've always wanted to play Doom 64, but I'm not sure how well it's aged.

If you can play 1 and 2 you can play 64. It's basically the real Doom 3. If you can't play Doom 1 or 2 anymore, then 64 ain't gonna change that.

When a 20 year old game is a more exciting release than todays video games

Why are the models so blurry when you get close to them? It looks like they used some kind of poor anti-aliasing effect.

Doom 64 is the last Doom game John Romero worked on - in a sort of consulting role, but still.

Doom 64 is a horrendous game made for console peasants. It features none of the hallmarks of level design that made the PC Doom games great, incomparably uglier sprites for the enemies and colored lights in literally every sector.

I urge anyone who disagrees to watch the linked stream above and count the elevation changes in both floors and ceilings as well as the light / shadow contrast spots in the entire footage.

On the original hardware, Doom 64 was notoriously dark and didn't have the intense neon look present in that stream.

The game had some crazy traps and levels. It's Doom on crack.
