Can you survive the demon-filled hell of our Doom quiz?

In celebration of id Software's newest first person shooter RAGE, we've put together a quiz covering the classic and genre-defining game series Doom! Brush off your BFG9000, fuel up your chainsaw and get ready to blast some demons back to whence they came- especially now that it's okay to play this game in Germany!

(Take the quiz.)

You'll have as long as you like to take the quiz, and can retake it until you get 100%. Just remember your cumulative time will affect your position on the leaderboard.

What, Dr.Zoidberg isn't the right answer?To hell with this quiz!

In preparation for Rage.....Think its time to replay Doom 3 again.

Oh, cool, 1st place out of 51...

Well... cue the cheaters who get inhumanly low times, I guess?

(As I type this, I'm #2, and #1 finished in 49 seconds; a good 40 seconds faster than I did.)

The last boss of the first Doom is called The Spider Mastermind and it's not in any of the answers to that question.
Didn't know about the Tom Cruise thing.

Doom972:
The last boss of the first Doom is called The Spider Mastermind and it's not in any of the answers to that question.

Actually, it's called "Spiderdemon" in the original Doom and "The Spider Mastermind" in Doom II... for some reason.

I'm 17th, And I'm not happy, I want DOOM questions about doom, What the hell does what console its now on got to do with anything! And who cares about the movie!
BAH! Ok chaps! whats the name of the doom character?

SHIFTYMACO:

Depends on your sources. Commonly referred to as Doomguy, but RPGs and novels have granted him various names. Personally I favor the Doom II RPG's Stan Blazkowicz, which would make him related to the protagonists of both Wolfenstein 3D and the Commander Keen series.

Man I played lots of doom, which is funny because I didn't own a computer capable of playing it until I was out of college. I felt like a crackhead bumming my fix from all of my friends until they were annoyed at me.

It's always been called "Spidermastermind" internally (classname "SpiderMastermind", Identifier "T_SPIDERMASTERMIND"), AFAIK the only place it's referred to as "Spider Demon" is in the obituary text "%o stood in awe of the spider demon."

SHIFTYMACO:

Doom Guy. Anyone who says otherwise is a liar and a cad.

JediMB:
Snip

Really? I thought he was called John Hero! unless I'm going nuts in my old age.

*shrugs*

It's not the only monster in the original series with conflicting information as far as names go.

3/10
I guess that's pretty good for someone who has only played Doom III!

Eh, one of the questions appears to be wrong. The quiz tells me that I keep getting the question about which 5th generation console had a version of Doom wrong, but I know that it is the Sony Playstation, I have a copy of that game, but it is a slightly different game, but i've also tried all the other answers to that q and it keeps telling me I'm getting it wrong.

EDIT: It seems the answer was

but I thought I already tried that once and I was told I was wrong, but maybe not. Anyway, there was a version of Doom on the Playstation, so the question is still sorta wrong.

20th with 100%.

I could have done it quicker... only if I remembered the Tom Cruise film, that one I had to think about. Mostly because I haven't seen many of his films haha!

Still, the rest were a breeze!

Answer:

The original Doom was in C, so it had no classes. Also, the original Doom didn't have obituaries. Using the GPLed Linuxdoom source....

All occurrences of "spider" in the source:

#define E3TEXT \
"The loathsome spiderdemon that\n"\
"masterminded the invasion of the moon\n"\
"bases and caused so much death has had\n"\
"its ass kicked for all time.\n"\
(...)
#define E4TEXT \
"the spider mastermind must have sent forth\n"\
"its legions of hellspawn before your\n"\
"final confrontation with that terrible\n"\
(...)
#define CC_SPIDER "THE SPIDER MASTERMIND"
(...)
#define CC_SPIDER "L'ARAIGNEE CERVEAU"
(...)
{CC_SPIDER, MT_SPIDER},
(...)
{ // MT_SPIDER
(...)
MT_SPIDER,
(...)
if (actor->type == MT_CYBORG || actor->type == MT_SPIDER || actor->type == MT_SKULL)
(...)
if (actor->type==MT_SPIDER || actor->type == MT_CYBORG)
(...)
// Check for bosses.
if (actor->type==MT_SPIDER || actor->type == MT_CYBORG)
(...)
// MAXRADIUS is for precalculated sector block boxes
// the spider demon is larger,
// but we do not have any moving sectors nearby
(...)
// Boss spider and cyborg
// take no damage from concussion.
if (thing->type == MT_CYBORG || thing->type == MT_SPIDER)
return true;
(...)

TRANSLATION: The end of Doom 1 called it a "spiderdemon". The end of the Ultimate Doom (Doom 1 episode 4, which came out closer to Doom 2's release) called it a "Spider Mastermind". The cast-death screen of Doom 2 called it "Spider Mastermind". Its name in the code was SPIDER, and the comments in the code called it "spider demon" or "boss spider".

(The Arachnotron, BTW, is either called "Arachnotron" or "MT_BABY".)

I got 8/10.

But then again, the quiz asked stuff about the Doom movie which I would rather pretend did not exist so it wasn't fair anyways........-_-

I must kill the demons!

I scored 100%, with 10 of 10 correct on The Escapist's The 'Doom' Quiz.
Take this quiz

Only took me 8 friggan tries...

tsu-money:
I must kill the demons!

And then John was a sock.

(I love Youtube's "Transcribe Audio" feature.)

faster internet rocks im number 140 with a 90% hit ratio and i have not played a Doom game in 2 years

So, I'm still #1. I did not cheat on this either, a couple of years ago I read through the Doom wiki because I finally found my dad's original floppy disks of both games.

But, yeah if someone does not beat my score, I will be surprised.

...

THIS IS THE DAY I HAVE BEEN TRAINING FOR MY ENTIRE LIFE.

If possible, I now love you even more, Escapist. <3

Helps if the quiz doesn't bottle it around question 7, refusing to go any further.

I blame misguided experimental dabbling with demonic portals and the like for this mishap.

Funny, when I finished the quiz I wasn't even told how I did. I just got the scoreboard (and I wasn't on it).

Anyway. If folks are going to be replaying Doom 3 in preparation for Rage, why not give my Mod a try?

I got 4th place on the leaderboards. I'm not sure if I should be proud because I know so much about my favorite game or if I should go cry in a corner, sorrowfully repeating the words "All the wasted years..."
Either way, hell yeah! Doom!

So where the HELL (on Earth) is my badge? I was in the top25 even.

Dammit, failed the Scientologist movie question, twice.

All DooM fans, read the DooM comic, then download the BRUTAL DooM mod for GZDooM or Skulltag.

Rip And Tear.

According to the spell checker, Scientologist isn't a word. Interesting.

1st place, biatches.

First time it's ever happened too. Ballin'.

O hai there. ;)

EDIT: Whoops, double post. Damn captchas.

Nice job there JC175!

SirBryghtside:
Doom 2 was just a canonical mind-duck. For some reason it said that the Demons were suddenly aliens.

...what? Such a disappointment, I liked the first. 2 ended up being a massive grind.

*this post brought to you by a total lack of nostalgia goggles, because I completed Doom 2 last week :P*

Even at the tender age of 10 I realized that Doom's ending sequence and Doom II's story as described in the instruction booklet were incompatible.

Doom II did have some marvelous new monsters, though. (And I suppose that technically the demons are also aliens, since they sure as Hell don't come from Earth. :P)

Do you honestly read the questions? I thought we just randomly click and go!

Also...

You're currently ranked 2543rd out of 2676 total entries

Nailed it.

If I don't get 10/10 on this I'm going to feel shame... and wonder what I've been doing for the last 15 years or so...

Edit: ...and I got the very first question wrong, and realised I'd got it wrong as soon as I clicked it.

*throws self down in front of pc*

Please forgive me! I really do care about you!
