DOOM is often hailed as the most important first person shooters of them all (thanks to multi-player fragging). It seems that some well-intending scientists on Phobos (one of Mars' moons) have opened a gateway to Hell. The marines were sent in to neutralize the hostiles only to be blow to chunky bits or possessed by the enemy. You play the last living marine and you must try and save the world form these SOBs. You'll acquire an array of weapons like the shotgun, chaingun, rocket launcher, plasma rifle, and of course, the BFG9000. As you race through the 3D levels, you'll encounter all sorts of terrible monsters like zombies, imps, demons, cacodemons, and the dreaded Baron of Hell.

Doom has a nice heavy metal score with plenty of eerie ambiance tunes as well. Most of Doom's music was greatly influenced by heavy metal music of the period and some songs even contain riffs "borrowed" from the songs.

DOOM's MUS files were ripped from the Doom.wad using Bill Neisius's DMMusic program and recorded using Winamp's MIDI plugin.
The rip also has the unreleased music that didn't make it into the finished game. The unreleased music is mostly a collection of unfinished drum and guitar riffs in MIDI format, and as such, isn't that impressive. However, some of the tracks like "opening" and "un30" are pretty good. The unreleased music was downloaded from John Romero's Web site (www.rome.ro).
