The Mythbusters Take on Doom Myths in Video Game Special

| 26 Jan 2015 10:09

In next week's video games special, the Mythbusters take on one of the most iconic games of all time: Doom.

If you've been watching the latest season of Mythbusters, you'll have noticed every episode has had its own theme. This week was The A-Team, and the week before was The Simpsons. Next week, the theme is video games, and Adam and Jamie are tackling some myths to deal with one of the most iconic games of all time: Doom.

Check out the clip above, which has Adam running through an abandoned warehouse, retooled to look like a classic Doom level, picking up guns which, appropriately, have cameras mounted right on top of them. They even made sure to include that instant nostalgia inducing "Doom Doors" sound effect. In the video's description, it states that id Software's own Tim Willits will be helping out, as the duo test one of the longest standing FPS tropes of all time: can you really carry all those guns and ammo?

That's only one of the myths, though, and as it is customary for each episode to feature at least two, we wonder what they will pick for the second. Can you strafe and shoot accurately at the same time? Can you actually heal a rocket blast to the face with a standard medpack? What exactly is a BFG and how the heck would one work in real-life?

Maybe the second myth isn't even related to Doom, but features another video game? It is the "video game" special, after all, and not the Doom special.

Doom fans are already excited with id Software and Willits involvement, hoping that the episode may contain a teaser for the upcoming Doom 4, which Bethesda has done a great job of keeping shrouded in mystery so far.

As for me... Fallout 4 or go home. Bethesda. Plz.
