Doom 3

2004 Doom 3

Back in the day when video gaming was just coming to life, the year is 2003 and 2004. Doom 3 hit the market and to this day many will not play this game, too dark and you will jump out of your skin.

Pleasant Dreams

Doom 3 like others which were NASCAR 2003, Links and Microsoft Flight Simulator was the era of game platform building and add-ons by the public.  To this day, 10+ years later all patches, updates are available and the public is still building these Sims and they all roll on Windows 7.  A platform you can still go under the hood and build your box along with the Sim adding the tweaks, add-ons, updates, patches, mods, sound and textures as time goes by.  Last but not lease the Ctrl+ Alt+ Tilde = Give All, you're going to need it because like the Tom Clancy Sims, you're gonna to die!  

Doom 3 BFG Edition, "what the hell"

From Wikipedia:
Doom 3 BFG Edition is a re-release of Doom 3, which was released on October 15, 2012, in Australia, October 16, 2012, in North America, October 19, 2012, in Europe and November 22, 2012, in Japan for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The BFG Edition features enhanced graphics, better sound with more horror effects, a checkpoint save system, and support for 3D displays and HMDs.

The game also includes the previous expansion Resurrection of Evil and a new single-player expansion pack called The Lost Mission.  Additionally, it includes copies of the original Doom (the Ultimate Doom edition with the add-on fourth episode,  "Thy Flesh Consumed"), and Doom II with the expansion No Rest for the Living, previously available for the Xbox 360.  The BFG Edition also features the ability to use the flashlight while holding a weapon, in the form of the so-called armor-mounted flashlight.  

The PC version of Doom 3 BFG Edition requires the Steam client and a valid Steam account for installation, play and achievements. The source code of Doom 3 BFG Edition's engine was released under the GNU General Public License in November 2012.  id Software said they would not officially bring Doom 3 BFG to Linux, although an independent developer, Robert Beckebans, has.

From Wikia:
Trent Reznor is the frontman of the band Nine Inch Nails.  As a fan of Doom and vice versa, he was asked to design the music and sound effects for Quake.  The PC version of the game included 10 ambient tracks from the game as standard CD-Audio files, so the game disc could be played in a CD player with the first track reserved for game data (which can not be read by a CD player), and 10 additional tracks of music.  Quake's nailgun ammo boxes also feature the Nine Inch Nails logo on them. 

Reznor later did the initial sound design for Doom 3, but his material was eventually scrapped and replaced with other alternatives. A late NIN drummer, Chris Vrenna , did the theme song instead. Reznor's work on Doom 3 can be heard in the Doom 3 alpha builds, as well as via an unofficial sound pack mod.
