Summary

Evidence from comparison of Doom 1's title screen to the box art, suggesting that Doom's graphics were specifically designed for 320x200 with an aspect ratio of 4:3 (320x200 stretched vertically to fit a standard 4:3 display).

Left: Doomguy's head as it appears on the Doom 1 title screen, with aspect ratio correction applied.
Center: Doom 1 box art.
Right: Doomguy's head as it appears on the Doom 1 title screen, without aspect ratio correction.
