This guy turned DOOM into a interface for managing processes... See:

for details. Notable quotes:

A few of the problems of using Doom as a tool for system
administration: Certain processes are vital to the computer's
operation and should not be killed. For example, after I took
the screenshot of myself being attacked by csh, csh was shot
by friendly fire from behind, possibly by tcsh or xv, and my
session was abruptly terminated.

and also:

The application is very touchy and development is hindered by
guys with shotguns killing my shell windows.
