Apparently, the developers at id Software don't view DOOM as a horror game. They want it to be a "visceral action" title.

That's a negative

I've only played the 3rd game.

Doom was always a visceral action game. It had horror elements, but overall it was mostly action.

Exactly, it appears DOOM is returning to its roots. I am not mad at this.

Good to know. I've never been a huge fan of horror stuff and skipped Doom 3

Exactly, the original was a bit creepy in places but I dont think it was ever a horror game. Doom 3 put much more focus on it than the originals so I'm looking forward to it I just hope it doesnt go overkill on the casual side and end up like Bulletstorm or something.

I hope that it resembles more the second than the third.

Third one was great graphically, but the rest was just okay.

I love all the DOOM games. From what I've seen so far of the new DOOM I'm going to love that one too. I have to say though I'm not too sure about the finishers, I like them but I think I'd prefer it if the enemies didn't light up with a white highlight, I hope there's an option to disable that as I think it gives the game too much of an arcadey look. Just give enemies a distinct animation or sound to let us know they are ready for a finisher.

They say this like Doom, Doom 2, and Final Doom weren't all straight action games.

Doom 3 tried to go the horror route, and it was good for what it was, but it didn't feel like Doom.

This game looks awesome.

Bring it. Old school Doom rocks.

Indeed! That map editor looked awesome, too.
