Doom Reboot Won't Focus On Story And I'm Okay With That

Cinelinx: "According to a recent interview with Game Informer, Executive Producer Martin Stratton talked a bit about where the game will go story wise. To break things down rather bluntly he notes that the game focuses primarily on action and gameplay, then the story is secondary to all of that. We discuss why that is entirely okay with us!"

I love having a story in games, and am generally bummed when it's not the big focus. But Doom's story has always (For the most part) been intentionally sparse, with just enough to get you to the next level of killing monsters.

So it's kind of going back to basics, but I hope that doesn't keep it from being fun.

The more I see on it. The more it reminds me of the first.

No story needed. A door from hell has been opened, you're a marine with a shotgun. It pretty much writes itself!

That made me laugh ...
Doom 1/2 = Good childhood memories.

Thank you.

Doom will and has always been about just straight murdering demons in hell and to get to the next level.

To expand on that, is fucking retarded because the purpose of doom is to just frag the living shit out of things that don't exist in real life - and having fun doing so.

Three games that should be heavily protected from being messed with, Unreal Tournament, Quake and Doom. These franchises should always be mindless shooters with glorious graphics and explosions, along with the possibility of being turned into an arena shooter, because eSportz (with a z)

This game will be murdered on theses comments once released because of its story. Halo 5 is a prime example. If not then people hold double standards.

DarkOcelet1528d ago

Halo is known for its story.

Doom, not so much. I dont recall anyone playing Doom for the story.

Khaotic1528d ago

Halo 1 was story. The only thing anybody remembers about 2 or 3 or reach is how good the mp was. The only thing people remember about 4 is how bad the mp is so thats BS

Dark_Crow1528d ago

Halo 5 is the first halo game I have seen get so much hell for story. None of the past halos have been known for their story and yet everyone and their mother focused on the story in this one.

Doom doesn't need story.

annoyedgamer1528d ago

Halo has a lore that puts other games to shame and Halo 4 and 5 are an embarrassment to the name.

Doom on the other hand does not need a story to succeed. I did like Doom 3's horror story though.

Khaotic1528d ago

Yes and most of that lore was from books, not the games. And they are far from embarresments. Your dramatic hate is laughable

Killing demon is always be my pleasure.
