Today's a pretty significant anniversary in the PC gaming world, as it was 14 years ago today that the DOOM shareware was initially released, changing many lives forever (certainly mine). That means the release of DOOM predates Kevin Mitnick's arrest, OJ Simpson's acquittal, the release of Windows 95, the announcement (much less the release) of the DVD format, and the deaths of Kurt Cobain and Jerry Garcia. Dakota Fanning was not yet born when the DOOM shareware was released, and other now-dead people who were still alive at the time include Rose Kennedy, Cesar Romero (no relation), Telly Savalas, Jack Kirby, Richard Nixon, Jackie O, Burt Lancaster, Sonny Bono, Jack Lord, Henny Youngman, and Frank Sinatra.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to celebrate by taking some Gertiol and shooting some imps.
