E3 2015: Best possible use of the Doom trailer

I’m going to be honest here. I think the entire amount of time in which I have played any Doom game is directly inverse to the number of articles about Skyrim that I’ve written. I haven’t played much of the game, is what I’m getting at. So I have no clue what makes a Doom more »
