JJ : DOOM should have won game of the year in 2016. Not Overwatch.

polterghost : I always forget that id did not make Wolfenstein: The New Order.

StraightOuttaJarhois : 26:06 Damn, son, can I get some fries with that shake?

Noclip : Thanks so much to everyone who helped put this together. From our Patrons, to the cab driver who didn't mind us loading 7 bags of kit into her tiny car to get to the airport on time. We really hope you enjoyed watching part one.

Garrett : Doom 2016 was amazing, payed homage to my cousin who died way before his time who was one of the original ID software employees who worked during Doom 1 Production and more.

Helder Pinto : Amazingly well done documentary, love id! Also, RAGE's so underrated it's crazy...

Malcolm Alden : Finally. A documentary on one of the best games of all time.

The Ape Squad : Am I the only one who thought it was pronounced I.D. software and not id?

Sarthak Panda : Id software finally proved that talent, not fame results in success. Everyone who went crazy saying the big guys left ID and doom was doomed, jokes on you.

j mack : This is exactly the kind of content that makes me believe that NOCLIP is about to usher in a new generation of video game media. I'm astounded at the quality and cannot fucking wait for more from you guys

Trollseeder : Doom 2016 was such an incredible experience. A bit repetitive. But it's everything it had to be. The gameplay is pure and intense. The art is savage, so is sound design. I hope it sold a ton.

chris210racer : I wouldn't mind having DOOM 4 (Call of DOOM) as a spin off from the perspective of a Marine stationed on Earth. As long as it's not riding on the title name and uses a different name but will take place in the same universe as either DOOM 3 or DOOM 2016... Really wouldn't want another Hardline, which rode on Battlefield's popularity and should have just been its own title.

Kokurokoki : I'm not gonna lie, I wouldn't mind playing Call of Doom just to see how it would play out.

Paulo Lameiras : I'm glad the went with DOOM 2016, it's amazing. Also loved DOOM 3, btw.

MeldThe Steel : I loved doom 3

Obese pope : Quake reboot next please.

Game Loot : This was very well done. I am sure I speak for all Doom fans, thanks for doing this documentary!

Raycevick : An excellent beginning to a fascinating story. I've got to give credit to ID for opening up about DOOM 1.0's development. Having been one of many that joked at its expense (light-hearted, I assure), I understand why that direction was explored. I think its also brilliant of them to have not thrown everything out, and adapt its melee system into the glory kills. Can't wait for Part 2!

Merthalophor : 26:25 That guy is seriously funny ^^ this series is great, keep it up!

Cynical Sheep : I actually like Doom 3

Toolness1 : I want to play that unreleased DOOM 4!

Jamesin120FPS : Thank heavenly host that Call of Doom never was released. An obvious attempt to attract the common drooling, short attention span, achievement driven modern gamer. Would have destroyed the franchise completely.

Trixmay 988 : Hey! Danny! First Noclip vid I've seen. Is this his channel? Also can you do one for Unreal and Deus Ex? Both centered on only the original. Also a series on all of the Thief games would be incredible.

tominatorxx : Why not make a seperate new series of that DOOM 4 1.0 prototype. It looks great. Not a DOOM game but it could be something really awesome on its own. :)

Dankuz M33mus Maximus : 28:12 when you misspell Mick gordon's name

Michael Dillmann : Don't often leave comments but amazing work. Thank you!

Gigerian : 17:32 I want that print (the one closest to the camera)

!BEASTY! : Danny O'Dwyer, a true gaming journalist, one we have needed for a long time. Keep it up

Toolness1 : DOOM 2016 is one of my favorite games ever.  The amazing gameplay, speed, and graphics are all brought together by the amazing soundtrack.  Perfect.

NERD SAUCE : You know, I don't hate the idea of Doom 4 1.0. I wouldn't mind if they did a mini-expansion exploring the idea. But I'm SO GLAD Doom 4 is what it is right now.

Snolferd : This is quality content. A rare sight nowadays. Awesome! Keep up the good work!

theSecondAgent : I hope one day I'll be able to work a camera. The cinematography was outstanding. Amazing work Danny & Jeremy!!

Craig Nevermind : I think Rage was a beautiful game. It was stunning to look at, and the fighting part of it was fantastic. I just think id dropped the ball, when they forced you to do the vehicle races and vehicle combat. The A.I. was great, and the animations were great as well. I think it took far too much stick.

نو نيم : Doom 2016 had every reason to fail yet even against the odds Id software managed to give us one of the best of not the best SP FPS experience of this generation

andrenegwer : This game is so much fun, something today's games forget to be. And you can most certainly appreciate the free updates. I tried playing other shooters that I used to enjoy , DOOM has spoiled me.

Balloon Cement : Great documentary, guys. Enjoyed the shit outta that! Really do wish my PC could run the latest DOOM.. *sadface*

Bobman9420 : See DooM 4 (1.0) I want to see that game, as its own IP. This looks good and sounds good!

Doug : The speed walker at the end though lol

Tom Riddler : Rage was a great game. Just wanted to get it out there for those who still bag on the game.

matterofact : I adore DOOM 2016. I had to delete it from my PS4's hard drive to make space for FFXV, but you can bet I'll be re-downloading that massive file to replay it again and again. And Danny, I love what you're doing with Noclip. This is some top tier stuff, my friend.

Popcorn Sutton : Is someone's name in the credits seriously Smoovious Laxness? That's sick

Eugene InLaw : i guess, you can call it a... DOOMcumentary

nullternative : Brilliantly done, yet again. Thanks for the docs!

Twilleh : So glad Doom 4 1.0 never released.

HairyHog : i wanna see ALL the quake con footage

FreedomOrNothin : Doom 3 is still one of my favorite games. Haven't played Doom 2016, waiting until I get VR next month. Can't wait!

DrakeWingGaming : Excellent work, loved all of this.

HypnoticSuggestion : This is just so outstanding, epic work man.

wooo weee : Sound design and atmospherics of the game is awesome, esp on surround, super intense. Also impressively optimized, especially on vulcan with amd gpu's. Was very impressed with 2016 DOOM
