Doom: The Return of Sam Hyde

Popular vidya game gives nod to Internet comedian by naming character after him.


If you haven’t heard of DOOM, you probably aren’t a gamer.

Doom is a series of first-person shooter video games developed by id Software. The series focuses on the exploits of an unnamed space marine operating under the auspices of Union Aerospace Corporation (UAC), who fights hordes of demons and the undead in order to survive.  Doom is considered to be one of the pioneering first-person shooter games, introducing to IBM-compatible computers features such as 3D graphics, third-dimension spatiality, networked multiplayer gameplay, and support for player-created modifications with the Doom WAD format. Since the release of Doom in 1993, the series has spawned numerous sequels, expansion packs, and a film. Many credit it as starting the FPS genre.

I am not the villain

Samuel Hayden is the Chairman of the UAC who oversaw the Argent energy research projects at the UAC Mars Base. 

A supporting character in Doom (2016), he helps guide the Doom Marine. 

He was born to the powerful Hayden family and was a very prodigious intellectual and philanthropist. After he was appointed as General Director of the Global Science Council, the UAC recruited him.

Soon after Argent energy was discovered on Mars, Hayden subsequently took over the leadership of the UAC.  

Hayden was diagnosed with an incurable brain cancer and left with a few months to live. He avoided his death by transferring parts of his brain into a 3-meter tall mechanical body. 

It was implied that Hayden chose this form for his expeditions into Hell. Samuel  Hayden led the first manned expedition into Hell in 2145 in which he discovered the Doom Slayer, simply called "Doom Marine". 

He had the Marine recovered and kept him personally under his watch away from the auspices of his disgruntled colleagues. 

Hayden's relationship with his colleagues gradually deteriorated due to their deranged, religious obsession with Hell which ultimately corrupted them.

I am not the villain in this story

After our victory much was gained, but much was also lost.
But with this we can continue our work.

O goddess-born of great Anchises' line, The gates of hell are open night and day; Smooth the descent, and easy is the way: But to return, and view the cheerful skies, In this the task and mighty labor lies. To few great Jupiter imparts this grace, And those of shining worth and heav'nly race. Betwixt those regions and our upper light, Deep forests and impenetrable night
