Don't give up, it'll come when you least expect it. I was lucky one day and got it.

I missed this last part sadly glad it's up now.

"That Achievement" seriously needs to be removed, because I always watch these videos not when they're immediately put up, and when I scroll down to see what people think of it I hate seeing the first five comments be just one or two words, or sometimes a semi-coherent thought that was clearly ninja-edited after they discovered that they did or didn't get the First Post, instead of, y'know, something resembling an actual thought with regards to the video.

But then again, I'm pretty sure the quest system isn't coming back after the redesign anyways :P

Anyways! Doom II, am I right?

September 2012, never forget! Month of the Brad. Now he'll give up gaming for good and go out hunting the white whale, because he is unstoppable.

Nicely done Brad.

I could only catch the first hour or so live but... Five hours?? FIVE HOURS??? BRILLIANCE!
 

You have my sword, Giant Bomb! 
By which I mean the money in my pockets.

Gotta say I am surprised to see that I remember more about Doom 2 than any of the Giantbomb crew. During the bombcast you can have people mail in and say "hey guys whats this atari 2600 game, you're green, and there are red things, what is it?" and jeff will know exactly what it is, and it's not like he just happens to know that one game, but he knows ALL OF THE GAMES.

But when they are sat together watching someone play doom 2, it's like... I dunno, it's like they never actually played it before.

It's because everyone cheated their way through the game, thus remembering these ridiculous levels is less likely.

Watched the whole thing from start to finish. Gotta hand it to Brad, I don't have to endurance anymore to sit 5 hours straight and plough through games like DOOM 2. But it's amazing how well DOOM has aged. Some of the levels range from brilliant to bullshit, but it's never not satisfying to kill monsters with the double-barreled shotgun. Thanks for bringing in Brad Muir as well. He's by far one of the coolest guests.

I followed the whole thing live but fell asleep around the 20 minute mark of this vid. By that stage Brad had already been playing for like 4 and a half hours. Thanks for the herculean effort, Brad and co., but especially Brad. His determination didn't once falter. The crew shouldn't squander that kind of stamina - take it and start an ER, ASAP.

5 straight hours of Doom 2 for an achievment and our entertainment.....

Mr. Shoemaker: You have me respect, gratitude and my axe.

I don't even want to express the thoughts that entered my brain about Brad leading up to his eventual victory. I went to some dark places.

I slept almost an entire cycle while this was going on. It was crazy to hear it still going every time I woke up.

It was also probably why I had some weeeeeird dreams!

Game story writing was pretty amazing back then.

Also brad seriously looks like lupin.

Bingo. I can concur this through personal experience as well!

Seeing this just frustrates me, Brad know what to do but over and over just keep going the wrong way, dont get the elevator down, tries to run back up again.

This is the end...

The End...

Posted by Foggen

The Living End is my favorite level in all of Doom.

Honestly, just give up on getting the first post on videos created by Giant Bomb, because people actually care about those. It's way harder to get the first post on those.

Instead, when GB posts a trailer for some game that basically nobody gives a shit about, you often have a window of like 5 minutes before anyone makes the first post about it.

kickass show!

Has Brad peaked this month? Or is he just getting started?

Might want to ride this wave through the Lantern Run.

Romero himself didn't put the head behind the last boss. The other designers put the head there and when Romero noticed the easter egg, he added the reversed line.

Edited by MeatSim

Another improbable victory for Team Brad.

Edited by LegendaryChopChop

Doom II has the worst level design of any game I've ever seen. So unnecessarily cryptic and just god damn ridiculous.

Many congrats to Brad for achieving the impossibility of two successful Breaking Brad's in a month!

Posted by Quarters

Man, Brad's getting on a roll. Needs to keep it up while the getting's good.

Posted by Godzilla_Sushi

I laugh so hard at the "final replay."

Saturday well spent!

Yeah, the last level is pretty tough. Took me 45 minutes to get my rocket timing right on the drops.

Watched this again just for the part with Hall of the Mountain King and the picture of Romero. 
 
Nice job Brad!

Oh man, now I can't unsee brad as lupin!

Wow, I didn't realize that last level was so savage. Good job Brad!

Well done, Sir Brad!

Posted by Roomrunner

I love the gracious applause at the end. SHOTGUN GUY!

Jeff seemed a bit irritable through the whole of his appearance on here. Hope dude is okay.

Absolutely. The people who rush in with shitty one or two word comments like "Cool" or "Looks good" to try and get the achievement, need to be hit with a bag of bricks.

You'd think there was a cash prize for getting it, or something.

It's crazy how serious they are.

A momentous day in Giant Bomb hist- nay, a momentous day in the history of mankind. Team Brad forever!

Edited by Draxyle

Doom II is a bastard and a half. This release definitely feels like a "master quest" version of Doom than an actual sequel, which I suppose is perfectly okay for fans.

I still have a copy of the first Doom lying around somewhere; the SNES version with its fittingly red cartridge. I don't remember why I even bought it, but it was my first FPS. Never got very far though, the "mechanics" were too much of a learning curve for me at the time.

John Romero's face showin up in tune with In the Hall of the Mountain King was worth the $50.

Maybe this would help:

Doom II is like the equivalent of Super Mario Bros 2(the Japanese version). Both games took a good game concept and made them mind numbingly difficult.

Also another win for Team Brad!!!
