Final Doom PSX Nostalgia by Helios437 Final Doom PSX Nostalgia by Helios437
A final doom pic inspired from days of old when all I had to play doom was a playstation.

Back then, all my mates had doom on their PC's, but my cruddy old 386 (bless it) just wasn't grunty enough, which sucked major balls, because for better or worse, I was absolutely obsessed about this game.

So when my ma and pa finally got me a PS1 for xmas, one of the first games I got was final doom (most others had the original doom for PSX, so I got this instead). And could barely tear myself away from the TV to join in the festive celebrations (seriously, I don't think I even slept that night!).

One moment that stuck with me was walking through an underground river while the starry sky above me lit the halls in a dull blue haze (the PSX versions lighting and ambient music was vastly superior to PC in my opinion, Despite the lo res graphics and missing monsters). So... I decided to paint it.

Gave him the trusty shotgun and the yellow key card (cuz no one ever seems to draw him with the keys). The level this is on is either the Canyon, Or Quarry... Honestly I cant quite remember. I Tried playing through it just to find it again, but Im running an emulator (my disk is completely fucked), and its sped up to the point where I'm getting killed by Former Humans and Imps in the first few minutes... meh maybe its just newer games making me soft. Games where so much more challenging back then...

So anyway, Enjoy and stay hearty!

EDIT: Changed a few things, mainly added some extra textures and some lighting, as it was looking a bit bare.

Think they both came out in 95 or 96 on ps1. I didn't play them til a year or two later (god that's a long time ago!!). The shotgun in this pic was supposed to be from the original but I tend to go on a bit of a tangent with some of my work. Think the D3 shotgun looks a bit more uh... 'techy'  and sci-fi too. Never much cared for that shotgun... felt under-powered. Maybe that was the point though.

Doom III was a major disappointment for a lot of us especially the weapons lol
Only 90s doom stuff I have is the original floppy disks of Doom before episode 4 was made, DOOM II hell on earth, and Doom 64 XD

I appreciated what they tried to do with it (Doom 3) and had a lot of fun with it. I guess its pretty hard to live up to that sort of legacy, and given the direction they went in was such a massive change of pace, it was never going to make as much of an impact as the first two. I'm glad Doom 2016 went back to basics and turned up the action. but nothing will ever beat the originals. Hands down my favorite games ever.

Also I still have the shareware version of Doom on 3.5 Inch Floppy disks!!

Does a really good job of evoking the look and feel of the game, right down to the vague architecture and glowing keycard.

This sure captures the mega creepy atmosphere that the PSX version had. Overtime, I grew to respect this game more for the horror element that it delivered despite the graphics not being quite on par with the PC version. Even though I sold it years back I can still play it on PC, including all other levels that were not originally with the PSX version.

Absolutely fantastic piece of art, I love it! PSX Doom was my childhood too, so there's a lot of great things I can identify with your experience. :D (Big Grin)

I did play the PSX version of Doom little bit at my cousins' house, since the PSX consoles are gone I couldn't play it, now I can able to play the PSX version of Doom on the PC www.doomworld.com/vb/wads-mods… after 18 years <3 despite the flaws of the PSX version since it's an atmospheric masterpiece

Yes I also found this mod (amazing what these modders can do, wish I were that smart!), though final doom hasn't been done yet, has it? As far as Im aware the soundtrack is out but not the actual game.

these type of people that can bring back the nostalgia in our hearts :aww: unlike the companies such as Nintendo or Sony. in the past I asked Sony to bring PSX Doom to PlayStation Network which of course it's been years and nothing happens :grump: I wish to play Doom 64 on Wii U or 3DS but that will never happen

btw the PSX Doom mod is too dark on the PC O.o

I understand. Nothing wrong with playing the original Doom 64, however, I did enjoy the TC. Nothing like good old DOOM 64 with a twist. LOL

Doom 64 is still my favorite and most scary Doom. It was a completely original Doom compared to 1 and 2. Great redesigns of the enemies along with great lighting, ambient sounds and environments, I think the Playstation 1 version of Doom ripped the sound effect right from it. But either way they are all great but as a kid Doom 64 will always be my favorite, it scared me and maybe thats why i love Doom 3 also.

I never got to see Doom 64 until quite recently, but its definitely up there with the PSX version. Think they where both (the PSX\N64) made at the same time, And the guy who did all the audio worked on both of them, Brilliant sound design. It took me so long to get into the PC version after playing these ones. Its just too... bright. Still each version has its good parts. No matter what version im playing, doom is just awesome.

The moment I saw the art, I knew exactly what it was. Man, Doom and Final Doom are the best versions of Doom IMHO. Not only did they iron out the kinks in Doom 1 and 2's levels and managed to pry out the great levels from horrid abomination that was PC Final Doom while giving us the master levels as well, but the atmosphere is unmatched and just perfects the game. I remembered this particular scene because of the fear of the unknown I had in this hallway and the faint light coming from night sky. It was these little things and the brilliant sound design that make the PSX versions of Doom tower over the PC versions. Believe me, I love Doom, it's in my top 10 favourite games of all time so I know what I'm saying when I say PSX Doom trumps the rest. As for Doom 64, it's awesome too and is the real Doom 3 to me as PSX Doom put 1 & 2 together and Final Doom PSX is more like a true Doom 2. But hey, that's just my 65 cents. BTW, for anyone who doesn't know, Doom 64 uses the same sounds from PSX Doom because Aubrey Hodges, the composer for PSX Doom, composed Doom 64 a couple years later. Just thought I would clear that up.

Dude, I was shitting in my baby pants when i was playing doom on my ps1 : DDD
Doom is so epic game i dont even have words to describe what had i feel when i was 9 years old playing doom on nightmare, killing demons with ssg, blowing up cyberdemons with bfg, zappin cacodemons with plasmagun. And everytime you pass the map on ps1 you are getting the code like FSGS1214SGR312S so when you put in your save load. I had so much notes with map codes. AAAAH I WANT TO GET MY CHILDHOODBACK TO PLAY DOOM AGAIN ASFGHW$TEHRASFWSEHRYGDJRTTHDGFSD. This is probably the best part of my childhood xDD. Everytime i hear psx doom soundtrack iam gettign almost cryed it sounds so familiar to me. And remember the map54? He, you probably do. The Barons of hell, the green room, redemption denied. This map stuck in my mind for ever. I was jumping in the room in happyness because i was a kid that passed doom on nightmare. ahh. so sweet times.

Yeah man totally. Many fond memories, Redemption Denied and The Marches had to be my favorite Deathmatch levels, me and a friend used to link our PSX up together (ahh, the link cable!), And play those levels for hours. 

back then, I used to cheat at games a lot. Doom was no exception, and I still cant believe I can remember those codes still (I think). Years after, I ended up playing both Ultimate doom, Doom II and final Doom back to back, no cheats, hardest difficulty. Cleared them all within a week. You show me a game these days where I have THAT amount of dedication. They truly don't make them like they used to.

All Hail DOOM!
