Jon goes FULL GAMER with a Doom review (2016), discussing the first-person shooter video game developed by id Software and published by Bethesda Softworks, which he played on Steam.

Show Notes:

Jon is a husband and a parent of a toddler, so he has real-life responsibilities and a limited amount of time to play video games every week. He also isn’t normally a fan of first-person shooters at all, so he was surprised at how much he enjoyed playing Doom. Hear Jon’s review from the point of view of a guy who is careful with his time commitments!
