The more outspoken critics of Doom have said that the title belongs in a museum, being a relic of older times. But Doom is more than just an demonslaying platform. Way back in 1995, Doom was used for ArsDoom, a virtual exhibition of art. The player would explore several rooms full of art. QuakinDoom, owner of the indie studio DevHour Games brings a similar concept with National Videogame Museum, a one on one rework of the actual National Videogame Museum located in Frisco, Texas.
NVM is a year long undertaking to recreate the entire museum into a Doom level, and currently you can explore the entire place as if it were a virtual exhibition. Enemies are also planned to be placed, so that you can even have some funny shooting demon's amidst references of Mario. But the National Videogame Museum is more than that. Its a throwback to a concept of using Doom as more than just a shooter, exploring the lesser known methods of using tried and tested tools. In that, NVM provides an experience that is unique from most other WAD's, but you should give it a whirl. Take a day off with the kids to this one-of-a-kind museum, and you won't even have to leave home for it. NVMDoom is certified COVID-19 resistant.
