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?

7:27 You put a biohazard symbol on what you describe as radioactive waste. The mistake is common, but the radioactive symbol is another type of trisector, the one commonly used as a "nuke" symbol in games. There's also other stuff about radioactivity you didn't get eeeeexactly right, but I can't blame people for not knowing everything about atoms and their interactions, even though it's my job I don't know literally everything either, way too complex :p
