"Doom" (2005) Domestic box office: $28,212,337 Why the game succeeded: Helped popularize the first-person shooter genre and added network play, allowing gamers the joy of shooting their friends. The movie? Game over: Critics savaged the film, with critic Richard Roeper stating, "The performances are awful, the action sequences are impossible to follow, the violence is gratuitous, the lighting is bad and I have my doubts that the catering truck was even up to snuff on this project."
