What's cool is you can see some of the animations they kept and revised for 2016.

When you strip everything back you can really see how great the animation is.
It's amazing how far games have come.

For me its always interesting to see some prototype of a game of something else and see the final product on why they go another direction in the end

My favorite is the MGS:Rising vs MGR:Revengeance.(I preferred the Kojima's one)
Another interesting one is Splinter Cell Conviction Concept vs Retail

I don't see what is "COD-like" here? Just because there's 2 seconds footage with ironsight?

Concertoine1301d ago

The devs were openly going for the cinematic shooter style that was popular in the years this was developed. COD-like Doom was pretty much the pitch.

Looks pish, no wonder it got canned.


Every Doom Game Ever

Whilst the FPS genre has since had a tonne of fantastic franchises, such as Quake, Unreal and Serious Sam, Doom remains at the top of the pile, and has one of the best comeback stories in video game history. Doom is almost 30 years running, and has even bled into other mediums such as feature films and novels. As it has been going for so long, there have been a large number of entries in the series, and there are probably a few you never played. This is every Doom game ever.

Why Development Stopped On DOOM 4

According to ID Executive Producer Marty Stratton, DOOM 4 was scrapped because "it was more 'DOOM' in name than really anything."

Because they wanted to punish John Carmack.

From reports apparently Doom 4 was shaping up to be COD but set in the DOOM universe, honestly really glad that didn’t happen.

Profchaos1603d ago

Pretty much they wanted to make it to meet what was selling at the time and in doing so it lost the soul of what makes doom doom.

MadLad1603d ago

Even Doom 3 did that, despite being a solid game all the same. Not mind blowing, in my opinion, but a solid title.

Because it was Call of Duty with generic demons on Earth. Looked worse than the 2009 Wolfenstein. They made the right call.

Fallout 4 made 750 million dollars in the first 24 hours of it's release. Doom sold 3.6 million copies by the end of 2016, that is roughly 216.6 million Dollars (if sold at full retail) WHAT IS THIS GUY COMPLAINING ABOUT!!!??!?! I hate this contrived narrative (that every idiot believes) that Developers and publishers hardly make any money and that the "cost of making a game is so expensive" Your profit on even 1 game that doesn't do well are more that what most movie studios make on the average good movie.
