Godfather Of Classic Video Game ‘Doom’ Putting These Collectibles Up For Auction

Doom 2 / John Romero / Ebay

John Romero, one of the creators of the iconic video game “Doom,” just dropped a serious “Doom 2” collectible on Ebay.


One of the OG creators of “Doom,” John Romero, recently put up an original set of 3.5-inch floppy discs from “Doom 2,” which was released back in 1994. The bidding started at 10 bucks, IGN reports, but has since increased to nearly $1,000, with almost a day of bidding to go. Check it out here.

“Doom 2” was released in 1994 and was one of the defining games in the first person genre.

Even more than 20 years later, fans are still playing, modding (Brutal Doom anyone?), and hacking the original Doom games to live out their sick fantasies. Just last year, John Romero released an entirely new level for fans of the game to try out their skills. He showed it off in this video.

A reboot of “Doom” was released in 2016, and the VR version of the game was given a 2017 release.

Produced by Bethesda, the latest “Doom” experience, titled “Doom VFR,” puts players directly into the world of Doom, making it a truly first person experience.

Romero has offered to autograph the discs for the person with the winning bid.

Romero wrote on his “Doom 2” Ebay listing, “I will sign these disks if you like.”

Romero also cautioned buyers that the discs may have aged just a little since 1994.

Romero wrote: “These disks look great – no defects other than they are 23 years old so the glue from the label is slowly coming through (as they all do over time).”

So buyer beware!

This Couple Tried Recording A YouTube Prank That Led To His Death

Pedro Ruiz III, 22, and his girlfriend Monalisa Perez, 19, had a YouTube channel that they were putting a lot of effort into. The channel, filled with prank videos and challenge videos, shows what appears to be a normal, happy, young couple vying for Internet fame. However, on June 26, there was a tragic accident while filming another prank video for their channel, according to Twin Cities Pioneer Press. The Halstad, Minn. couple was filming a prank where Perez, who is pregnant with their second child, shot a gun at Ruiz III, who was holding a book. The book was supposed to stop the bullet from hitting Ruiz III, however, that was not how it went down. The bullet went through the book, killing Ruiz III.

Perez tweeted before the incident that Ruiz III was the one who convinced her to perform the stunt.

According to the Twin Cities Pioneer Press, Perez said that Ruiz III produced a book that he had used to test the prank and showed her that the bullet was stopped by the book.

Twin Cities Pioneer Press reports that Perez told police officer who responded to the 911 call that Ruiz III came up with the prank to try to get more followers on their YouTube channel. Their 3-year-old daughter was a witness to the accident. First responders attempted life-saving procedures when they arrived at the scene but it was too late for Ruiz III, who died from a gunshot wound to the chest.

Perez has been arrested and is being charged with second-degree manslaughter. The New York Times reports that Perez faces up to 10 years in prison, a $20,000 fine, or both for the death of Ruiz III. She is currently out on bail.
