GR+ Live: Meet the creators of Doom on PS4 and Xbox One

Surprise: Doom is spectacular. By some feat of insane skill and black magic, id Software has made a Doom game that not only lives up to the original's imposing legacy but makes the series relevant in 2016 in a way it hasn't been in decades. How did it happen?

Co-directors Marty Stratton and Hugo Martin joined us to talk about Doom, trusting your audience, having a sense of humor, and what it's like to restart making a AAA game from scratch.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

I've been playing games since I turned four in 1986, been writing about them since 1987, and writing about them professionally since 2008. My wife and I live in New York City. Chrono Trigger is my favorite game ever made, Hum's Downward is Heavenward is my favorite album, and I regularly find myself singing "You Won't See Me" by The Beatles in awkward situations.
