As far as highly anticipated first person shooter games are concerned the Doom: Reboot which was released back in 2016 was a title that many people had waited to see for over a decade prior to its release. The Doom: Reboot which came out about three years ago was the first major installment within the set since Doom 3 was released back in 2004. As far as first person shooters are concerned many people would argue that the Doom series put that particular genre on map especially considering how legendary the very first game ended up becoming following its release in December 1993. In a way original Doom game was way ahead of its time following its ’93 release especially since 3D gaming did not begin to surge in popularity until the late 90’s-early 00’s when the Unreal & Halo series started to appeal to gamers in western countries.
As far as the first person shooter genre is concerned its something that has remained popular throughout the 10’s decade as well. Despite, the fact that Doom series has been around for almost 30 years now there are still a ton of people looking forward to the release of Doom Eternal for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows in November 2019. As far as the Doom Reboot being considered the most popular game of 2016 is concerned that is something that is highly debatable. In 2016, we saw the release of games such as Battlefield 1, TitanFall 2, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare which were all games that seemed like they received more mainstream attention during that year. The Doom Reboot seemed more like a game that would turn heads within the gaming world considering how legendary series itself was and still is.
