Interesting old id Software videos

Ran across a couple sets of id Software videos while working on my research project that some may find interesting. First is a video tour of the id Software office back in November 1993. Much of the video is taken up by John Romero playing a near-finished version of Doom. A lot changed in that last month of development, as you can tell by the videos:

The second set of videos is a documentary of id Software by machinima.com:

All Your History: id Software

Part 2 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uvh1aZId_4
Part 3 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZazceTEVufg
Part 4 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VPzu0Ehqwc
Part 5 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYKKvnKQkkE

There are quite of few other companies / games covered in their “All Your History” series that I have yet to watch. They certainly look promising based from the first couple parts I’ve watched of the id Software series.
