"I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

Got lost on  the YouTubes the other night watching random videos and landed on this, sort of related, was fun to watch.

 

As my father used to say, "A grenade a day keeps the enemy at bay!"

This doesn't look bad.

Levels look to be as much about exploration as they are about action, instead of practically a straight line like so many modern games.

 

EDIT: No wonder, these levels were literally made by the same two guys who made the levels in the original game. https://dukenukem.fandom.com/wiki/Duke_Nukem_3D:_20th_Anniversary_World_Tour

This is probably the best Doom WAD there is. Lots of great music, architecture looks nice and interesting in spite of the age. It's not just a bunch of bland, boring, identical rooms that feel put together in a half-assed manor, like with some maps. It has a professional look and feel throughout. Also they are not too confusing or complex to navigate. The focus is on the action here. You will probably never get lost. Monster and item placement is fair and difficulty is just right.

The world's first truly awesome digital camera. It was made in 1998. And I don't even care about the quality of photos that it takes, because it runs Doom! And it runs well, too.

 

For those that don't know, it was hard to find anything portable that was powerful enough to play Doom back then, The Gameboy barely got any upgrades at all inside of a decade, and during this time, competitors who tried to come to market with stronger handheld gaming devices with full color screens and faster processors (which were still nowhere near powerful enough to play a game like Doom) mostly failed spectacularly. As much as I hate Sony, they were the first to finally aggressively push powerful mobile gaming hardware. Even the GBA that came out in 2001 was mostly a 2D machine, though there is a cut-down version of Doom for it.

This game actually looks pretty good. Watching it, you think it's just a simple platform game, like most games were back then. But it's more complicated, (and more thought and effort were put into it) than that!

I love how he just plugs this thing in, and shortly thereafter, up comes the desktop, ready to work. No sitting there for ten minutes waiting for it to configure things, no wading through ten pages of license terms and unchecking invasive privacy settings. Why can't Windows on a thousand dollar computer work like that?

 

I'm thinking that they have managed to transform the Raspberry Pi into a perfect computer for grandparents with this new model that is on display here. Antivirus software and malware (is there a difference between the two at this point?) need not apply!
