In Doom: Knee Deep in the Dead, a marine without a name has lost his weapon. Initially, he comes a long way thanks to the Beserker-pack, but then finds a Cyberdemon that he can’t handle. He goes looking for the BFG-9000 with which he hopes to defeat the Cyberdemon. Meanwhile, the Marine is constantly talking to himself about all the misery that happens and he wonders out loud why there is so much radioactive waste around and what kind of polluted world future generations will end up in.
