Cool video. Never seen some of those versions before.
Doom is one of my favourite games, still play it fairly often.

I love the Jaguar version, I can't tell you how many hours I spent playing that game when I bought it back in the day.

I believe the NTSC-J release of Doom (Saturn) featured a marginally faster/smoother frame rate than what was released in the West on said SEGA console.

(I'm not watching that 25 minute vid to verify if this is mentioned!)

Interesting how this video comparison starts off.  They both look pretty good. 

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

Love the PS1 version of Doom the most overall but to be honest I love the game that much I would play just about any version.

I played the Saturn version again last night. I know Laird will kill me for saying this but I still prefer the Saturn version to the jag hands down. Least of all for the fact that you can see it in full screen but its actually got nice ambient sounds that lend real atmosphere... I know Jaguar purists say its better without but I think playing it without is pretty jarring and ruins the experience. but then I grew up used to the Saturn version with the music... please don't hate me lol

just watched that compare vid, it doesn't have the shit music that the 3D0 and PC engine ones do and its graphics look relatively good by comparison to all of them, except the obvious doom 3 lol
