I didn’t think I’d care, but CrunchGear just posted about the death of Don Ivan Punchatz, the artist behind the original DOOM video game box, and it sorta made me a bit sad.

DOOM was one of the first PC games I ever played and I can recall seeing this image every time I launched the game. And now the man who¬†subconsciously¬†told me that it was ok to shoot aliens is dead. It’s weird to think that DOOM is more than 15 years old.
