This is a review of the original Doom from 1993, also known as Doom Classic or Doom 1. Doom revolutionized the FPS genre, but is it still worth the money to play today? Does it still have anything to offer in a genre filled with options after almost 3 decades?

In this "Is It Worth Playing?" series, I review and rate games in 5 categories, to help you decide if you should purchase and play these games.
1. History and Legacy
2. Story, Presentation, Graphics, and Sound
3. Gameplay
4. Worth Your Time?
5. Worth Your Money?

Any feedback at all is sincerely welcome!

Here's a comprehensive review that puts the original Doom up against all the other games games that you could play today, taking factors into account such as how "Player Friendly" it is and how much it costs to play in its best form.
