It’s conceivable some younger gamers don’t realise just how seminal id Software’s games are. This two-part retrospective tells the story of the team who went from cobbling together shareware for Apogee on their lunchbreaks to creating some of the hottest shooter IP on the planet.

The retrospective was put together for Machinima. You can check out both episodes below.

Thanks, Voodoo Extreme.
