But it'd midnight, so I am going to just leave it in my cart on Steam. There's 7 hours before I wake up and pull the trigger. If anyone has anything to say that would cause this man and this first person shooter to not spend the next week together, speak now or forever hold your peace.

Your comments didn't age well, did they Max? I am now writing from the far future: November 1st 2021. 27 years after you wrote your comment, and 27 years of Amiga fans bawling about how easily Doom could be written for the Amiga and how much better than the PC version it would be because of how much more powerful was the Amiga (allegedly, never substantiated, contradicted by actual performance data). Even now there is Still no competing product for the Amiga. Not even with all those demo writers spending the intervening years trying to speed up Amiga graphics routines. Carmack was right. Being the original author of Doom he is also a far more educated and technically astute commentator on the issue than you are. Accept it: He was telling the truth. The fact you don't like it is irrelevant. Never in any issue is there a bigger case of "feelings over facts" than among the Amiga fan base. Doom was a final headshot to Amiga illusions, and still is. All there is left is the Zombie fan base. The stake through the heart is there is now no point in reviving the Amiga because there is nothing left to its name worthy of reviving.

Let's all come back in December 2023 and celebrate the 30 empty years of a "still nope" lack of anything on the Amiga that truly competes with Doom.
