A dedicated gamer made use of a Minecraft mod to accomplish the extraordinary feat of building a PC and then running Doom on it.
reddit User onesnowcrow posted a video showing how the player ordered computer parts via satellite internet from Minecraft, dropped them in the air, assembled it, installed Windows 98, and then demonstrated its power first using the Paint program and then running and playing Doom.
It’s become a popular trend on the internet for years to see how many ways and how many different mediums you can play the legacy first-person shooter, but this is definitely one of the more creative ones. You can check the video here (opens in new tab).
Analysis: ‘Doom’ modification and beyond
Anyone get something-something to run Doom has launched into meme infamy at this point, as people all over the world use all sorts of non-Doom things to actually do just that.
Like when someone played the game through a pregnancy test or when Doom scrolled through someone’s Twitter profile. Of course the “but can it run Doom?” challenge was taken very seriously by many creative developers.
And sometimes the challenge is taken beyond Doom, as an inventive person has made the entire version of Pokemon Red playable via their own Twitter avatar. Not to mention the latest ‘Twitch Plays Elden Ring’ which was inspired by the famous ‘Twitch Plays Pokemon’ event.
