Richard Drummond of Gaming Tech United writes:

"Violence in video games has always been a hot topic. Whether it be Mortal Kombat, DOOM, or Grand Theft Auto, parental groups love to focus in on the violent content that the developers include in their titles.

Haha that's what I say in the article! Haha. I think DOOM looks like a bad ass mindless shooter that I'll sink time into. Just like Wolfenstein. I see video games as art and if a dev wants to put chainsaws slicing through monsters, bring it on!

Too violent? There are far worse games than DOOM!

Yep. OT - is it just me or did you get a glimpse of the video and think it was going to be a parody where he had a wig on and pretended to be an angry mom?

The violence in doom is verging on cartoon violence, if not beyond it.

It's just so ridiculous in it's approach and frequency, to relate it to senseless violence or actual violence that ruins lives is incredibly wreckless.

If you have to ask if Dooms too violent maybe you're the one who should get your head checked.

It's a GAME.

* Crossing the street in real life is more violent than playing this entire video game.

At least then something bad ACTUALLY could happen as opposed to you know this just being.....a game.

Hell no! Haha. I love that DOOM is over the top violent. That's what DOOM is about. Violence and mindless shooting. I cannot wait to get my hands on this came. Especially wit the edition of SnapMap. Yes please!!!

I love Doom for the same reason. I saw the demo at Betheada's E3 conference and goddamn I knew I'd have a blast with the game. I cannot wait for the beta!
