Doom comes from a generation where instagram, social media and the incredibly stupid “selfie sticks” did not exist. Over the years Doom has received a large amount of updates and mods by gamers attempting to bring new and exciting features to the classic game. I’m not a big fan of selfies or instagram, but the “InstaDoom” Doom Mod takes things in a very unusual direction.
The InstaDoom mod brings a grand total of 37 instagram filters to the game. These aren’t really anything special since instagram filters have been ruining photos for quite some time. The main trophy piece for this mod comes from the selfie stick! Yes this mod adds a selfie stick to the game. The addition of the selfie stick to this game is as pointless as it sounds, but is also as awesome as it sounds!!!
For those who don’t know, a selfie stick is a stick that you attach your phone to. This stick then allows you to take a picture of yourself from a distance. As you can see from the images below, taking selfies at just the right moment makes for a pretty funny picture.
The main agruement against the logic of this is about the guy not having a helmet on in the pictures. My guess is he only wore one on the cover of the game, since we can clearly see his face and all the awesome expressions he pulls over the course of the game.
