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:

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.
