Not only is the original 1993 Doom a storied title, helping to shape the modern FPS for decades to come, but it has become something of a meme over the years. One of the ways people are helping to perpetuate the longevity of influential games is by trying to install and play them on numerous devices that are not initially designed to run. Doom has been ported to a number of strange pieces of hardware, and the fanbase is often looking for more machines that can be compatible with it. Lately someone managed to get it loaded onto a machine that is even older than the game itself.


By posting a video to Twitter recently, user monel1976 managed to load Doom onto an Amiga 1200 computer, a machine that came out in October 1992. The clip shows the captured footage, in which you can see the game running at a decent frame rate. The video was uploaded after someone posted an image of an Amiga 500 monitor with Doom running. Unfortunately, it was revealed that this image had been retouched, but it sparked a debate about other types of devices that could play the game, including other Amiga computers from the '80s and' 90s. While Doom was officially carried over to numerous devices, including a version For the Amiga operating system, former id Software co-founder John Carmack has talked about how the Amiga simply isn't powerful enough to run the game, according to another Twitter user. This perhaps suggests that some modifications have been made to the 1200 so that it plays at an average of just under 30 fps. Either way, it once again gets people talking about all the ways this influential title can be played on a wide variety of things, especially those that aren't designed for games.

Perhaps one of the strangest ways someone has ported the game is when, earlier this year, a person had Doom run using logic gates made up of 16 billion soldier crabs. Apparently there is a dedicated community striving to find new and interesting ways to play the most notable IP from id Softwares.


The fanbase is also interested in modifying Doom and Doom 2 making them completely different games. The legacy of this mid-90s shooter cannot be overstated. The fact that people are still willing to play the game, or play with the devices and hardware to run the game, shows how much of an impact the original Doom and its sequel have had on the community.
