Lets call it Retro and just go with it :)
All they had to do was take Doom and give it a serious make over in the Graphics department. Doom is Doom and it doesn't need perks or kill streaks or levolution or blast processing or mode 7. Doom is proper and wonderful as is as long as it has that OMG im fighting hell demons then it's a winner.
Blast processing bit made me lol.
Doom is Doom, lets see what it looks like when it finally arrives. Pure id Software stuff hasn't been a winner for some time, even if it powers the back-end of other games...
Yeh its been a long time since id has really put out something special, i think this might be it !
maybe i'm the only one but i wasn't very impressed with what they showed at e3. i don't get that sense of fear and the variations in monsters and animations looks like it will get old fast. i kept thinking of how well the last alien game was and how they managed to get such a great atmosphere going and solitude with the fear of what's around the corner. mind you this was just a demo.
True that. Will have to wait and see with the final game before a judgement can be fully made. But i am excited.
Doom was not originally a horror game. Doom 3 made it fit into that category, but here they're trying to go back to the arcadey roots.
Sorry to tell you but the real Doom was never about fear!Doom was first a tense gory mindless shooter;getting the tension from the packs or quantity of enemys that the game sends after you from everywhere.Its a game that keeps you on your toes due to the tension and intensity of the horde send after you not because of fear!
Nope it looks good and very cool. If it doesn't hold your hand then that's a good thing.
Well said completely agreed
nah, not at all, i think this is what doom 3 should have been! BRING IT
It's old school with better graphics and physics, doesn't get any better than that.
Would love to see a remake of all the quakes!
Doom has a place in my heart. Doom will have a place in my collection.
I think a LOT of newer or younger gamers would be very surprised at how good some of the 'old school' shooters are. They were made in a time where people thought stories in games were a dumb idea so they were heavily gameplay focused, with a lot of though put into level design and enemy placement. And those secret rooms :) After seeing the new DOOM I'm very excited to see what this team might do with a Quake remake, Quake 1, 2 or 3 who cares, Quake is Quake and it rocks.
I feel like if it wasn't old school, everyone would be pissed, myself included. It looks awesome as it is, and I plan to buy it BECAUSE it's old school Doom :3
No...see Wolfenstein The New Order.
Looks spot on to me. Doom 3 was a letdown.
Doom is exactly what we need.
Its too Bloody, too Gory, too Violent for me, I was looking for a sequel to Doom 3 which I loved, instead I get this causal over the top arcadey multi[player] slop fest. smh.
I kind of get your point about the arcadey part, i wasn't excited by it either. There was supposed to be tons of enemies crawling all over you, from what they said a long time back. All we get in the trailers is few enemies at once. It didn't really have a Doom feel to it, something is definitely missing. Tbh it looked a bit boring compared to the carnage in games like Killing Floor 2 where the game swamps players with loads of enemies.
