JC: With Doom, you're talking to two audiences really; you're talking to casual gamers and to really avid Doom fans. The challenge is to really communicate that story and the level of advancement with the game to the avid gamer, the hardcore gamer, and at the same time, make it interesting enough, [so that] if you don't know the whole Doom universe, you would want to jump into it and play that game."
