    Lets hope Rage is good. After D3 I feel like Doom has fallen off the map besides the fact that Doom 1 & 2 were exceptionally great and also my first computer games I played as a kid :)
  3. I loved Doom 3 and played it occasionally well after wearing it out. Unfortunately, last time I tried to load on my new machine, I could not find Disk 1. That was a sad day...

    For me, considering single player, it ranks only behind Original Half Life and Original Far Cry.
  4. So what? An old single threaded DX9 game engine. We are living in a DX11 world with lots of cores :D
  5. Yeah, so what? Crysis 2 was no where near the game Doom 3 was fun and atmosphere.
    Here's hoping BF 3 actually makes an enjoyable single player campaign.

    I would like someone to take Quake using the Tech 4 and turn it into a coop like Quake II... I miss multiplyer coop... playing through the game with a deathmatch amount of people was crazy... but I'd be happy for a drop in and drop out coop.

    So Tic-Tac-Toe in DX11 would be awesome right?

    I can't wait to see what people come up with when they do release it. There are some pretty creative people out in the world.
  10. Doom 3 scared the crap out of me

    Doom was my first FPS. I hope Doom 4 will be out by next year. It's been 7 years since the last Doom title was released.
     
  12. @fpsgamerJR62 think we are gonna have to wait a little longer than that for doom 4 to be released, still playing doom 3 and for me still looks pretty damn good visually with everything at max
