I'd like to think most gamers at least know what Doom is all about and why people like it, but I'll go ahead and lay it out.
This is my favorite shooter game in the world, and one of my favorite games period. It nails the logical progression of difficulty in terms of enemy placement and quantity as well as map layout. This game is so replayable -- it's actually among the first few games people had the idea of speedrunning. If you're not out for speed, then you can kick the difficulty up a notch or try and get every secret. Every weapon has a distinct application (save for the handgun) and feels satisfying to use. Fantastic gunplay.The Doom engine itself is divine, one of the best I can think of. The game is as challenging as you want it to be, anywhere from piss easy (I'm too young to die!) to brutally hard (Nightmare)
You can't ignore the music and graphics either. Some of the best, most appropriate game music and graphics that have aged incredibly well.
The atmosphere in Doom is absolutely flawless. Never does the game fail to make me feel like I've got a monstrous task ahead of me. Sometimes you'll be anxious to activate a switch that is so obviously a trap and you don't know if you can make it out alive, but you have to activate it anyway if you want to progess. At others, you'll channel the badass nature of your space marine avatar and let nobody out of your clutches. You're supposed to feel like this is a hell (heh) of a task to take on, but also that you're exactly the man for the job, and that's exactly the feeling Doom gives me.
With only select Bethesda ARPGs coming even close, Doom is probably the most modded game in the world. There are countless megaWADs, level packs, and gameplay-altering mods. And you can bet your sweet ♥♥♥ there's multiplayer mods available, each with level packs and gameplay mods of their own. Mods are coming out faster than you can probably play them, so don't worry about running out of content. With the base game and all these mods that have been coming out since the early '90s, anyone who gets a kick out of this game can easily get hundreds of hours of enjoyment out of it.
Basically, Doom is one of the most polished, most well-designed games on Earth (and Mars, and Hell) and I could play it forever.
