Looking back on Doom in preparation for Doom Eternal coming out, I've noticed that, like so many other video games, it has barrels that explode when you hit them. Why IS that? What makes there barrels explode - no, SHOULD these barrels explode? Today, Austin is diving head first into the science behind exploding barrels! From Doom to Donkey Kong, no barrel will be safe! Get your fuses ready Theorists, we are about to ignite your mind!

  • so you're alright with demonic creatures, teleporters, bfg's, archviles that resurrect enemies, etc, but can't stomach an exploding barrel?

  • Honestly, we can probably thank Looney Tunes for all this barrel exploding malarkey. I'm pretty sure the bombs in Road Runner don't make much sense there. Especially since Wile.E Coyote only ever manages to blow himself up 3659 times xD

  • You didn't want to dip into the idea that since these are full of radioactive waste, maybe shooting them adds enough pressure or material to create critical mass for a nuclear reaction? That seems like it would result in MUCH more screaming and shouting and "GOD DAMN TERRIFYING".

  • Well it is video games, they aren't real or realistic, no matter how fancy their graphics. I mean right and realism went out the door when physics was introduced into games, and dang, a space marine fighting literal hell. Realism left the chat centuries ago, so relax... You sacrifice realism for fun gameplay.

  • Hi, its me, Nefarious.... Doom didn't create a genra, it was not the first FPS, it did popularize it. Maze War was the first FPS and its 20 years older than doom, also Battlezone by Atari came out 15 years before doom. so.... your wrong Austin.

  • If it's a radioactive waste facility, they could be barrels of depleted uranium, which is pyrophoric, and can auto ignite in the presence of oxygen. If it was in powdered form, the impact of a projectile could rupture the barrel, exposing previously oxygen free and contained powder, as well as possibly dispersing and causing a dust explosion, or at least a rapid conflagration.

  • Naming games with exploding barrels. Flashbacks of playing Borderlands as Lilith, or Moze. Soo many types of barrels that explode. The game literally makes fun of it by saying that it is normal for something to explode on Pandora.

  • Why does it sound like something went wrong in the editing of this video? In the third act of the video, it sounds like the audio starts lagging behind what’s appearing on screen. The words Never ever ever ever ever started appearing long before you stated them. The clip of Half Life 2 gameplay appeared before you even said “You know what game does it right?”. It is incredibly clear that based off of the fact that the timing of cuts did not match the timing of the audio cues that something must’ve gone wrong in either the uploading of the video or some time during the editing phase. Why else would the audio and the graphics be so out of sync?
