DOOM is a first-person shooter game that was originally released in 1993. For the time, the game was revolutionary for the FPS genre. The franchise continued getting installments until its recent revival in 2016 with DOOM. Bethesda Softworks and id Software knocked it out of the part with this latest rendition of the DOOM series. The fast-paced gameplay coupled with gory executions made the game one of the best single-player shooter games.
