What’s the best way to spur new life into an old game? Add more death. The great grandfather of FPS games, Doom, received a Halloween update in the form of the Brutal Doom mod. This bad boy adds boatloads of blood, guts and custom death animations to all the denizens of hell. It’s quite impressive to see mods still coming out for a game that’s almost 20 years old.
Besides the upping the chunky gore fest, Brutal Doom adds some game mechanics too. Weapons behave more realistically (it is still Doom so don’t expect ARMA level changes) and we get headshots, camera shakes (from explosions), severed limbs, and splash damage.
Here’s a video of all the fun:
