Doom is not based on Alien, nor does it take influence from the movies. I would rather see Doom continue to be its own thing rather than try and shoehorn references to dated sci-fi movies. (The newest ones arent that dated, but they're not that good either)


iD Software wanted to make an Alien(s) game but they didn't wanted to go through all that trouble just to make a game. So they created their own game instead.


Source? Also according to the Doom books, the "demons" are creations of a more evolved race that made them in the images of humanity's greatest fears, in order to facilitate conquest over them more easily, which they had mostly succeeded at by the end of the second book. Admittedly it's after the second book that things stop feeling like Doom in the series and more like a bad sci-fi series, eventually with the main character (the Doom Guy) turning into basically a religious nut who starts beating humans possessed by the aliens by converting them, and not wanting to kill them anymore.

The first 2 books were fantastic for the series, and draw a lot of parallels to the games. Heck the descriptions of environments in some games are so good that i could even recognize what level they were on and WHERE in the level they were at that point in the book. It isnt a TERRIBLE read, and if you're a big fan of the series i would recommend picking up at least the first two books, though maybe not the last two unless you want to see how Doom "really" ended.


Can't find a source atm also i haven't read the books yet. Too much time at work :(

They picked an allegiance to a system. And they defend it and will lay their own lives for the console of their choosing. The Game of Consoles is just starting.

Are you talking about the newer or older books? Because last I remember there was somewhere around 50ish novels, not only on Doom but books on doom by id

It's covered upon ever so briefly in the book Masters of Doom(great read). As for the rest of your post, the books are good but they're also non canon to the story of Doom.

That's kind of ironic now, considering Alien Trilogy was essentially a Doom clone (with aliens).

Doesn't Doom involve Hell and demons rather than space aliens?


Doom3 references a terrestrial civilation which we descended from constantly through out the entire game


but doom 3 sucked taint so who cares

Yeah they're non-canon, but the first two do VERY closely follow the games, particularly the first game and first book.

These are the books i meant for the other poster:

Interestingly enough, the copies i owned had different covers for books 3 and 4, but the covers for 1 and 2 are the same.
