In 1993, the video game Doom, published by the local outfit id Software, pretty much blew people’s minds. No one had ever seen a game that was so immersive and so violent. In short, it was a thing. Today id is relaunching the game. You’ll find reviews online of the single-player experience. They are mostly good. But as Time points out, reviewers won’t get a taste of the multiplayer experience until today, when id’s server is fired up for the public at large. You can watch a livestream of the game being played here. (If the Dallas Observer’s Patrick Williams isn’t taking the day off to properly celebrate the occasion, I will be disappointed.)
