    With a basic premise such as Doom, I'm surprised they haven't rebooted it sooner. Doom 3 was more a tech demo than a game, and unfortunately for id Far Cry already stole most of that thunder. If they focus on the campaign, like they did Wolfenstein, I can see this being the Doom game we've waited decades for.

    I remember being stunned by Doom 3 graphics in 2004-2005, but overall I was disappointed with the dull story telling, and lackluster game play that involved a lot of enemies with very scripted behavior, as their redundant animations upon detecting the player suggested.
  7. Yeah, I saw doom 3 more like a graphic adventure that a fps, the gameplay is to simple, even doom 2 feels better. Still I beat that game like 3 times back in the day.
  8. Personally.... I believe Carmack UN-involvement is a "God" send.

    This is important because he did more than code, he had the final say on EVERYTHING...
    So, if you cannot tell a story, and he can't apparently then the project is in trouble from the get-go... ("hell" I wonder if he could give directions to his local 7-11)

    But what do I know.... Wait and see. I have beta access.

    Doom needs lots of enemies on the screen at once with interesting mechanics.

    The teaser didn't do anything for me. I will reserve my opinion until after I see game play. And even then if the controls are complicated, I may not care. My fingers are not as agile as they used to be.

    Half Life 3? Please?
  13. You all are just lame. This is Doom. Respect the legacy this game left behind. Here you all are bashing it when every single one of you played the hell out of these games back in the day.

    Fallout 4 really, @TomSEA ? Different genre.

    @lipe123 What else you want it to be called? Doom is a perfect title.

    @veLa Remember, Doom 3 was more of a showcase of next-gen graphics. This game paved the way for the next gen so it was normal to expect a mediocre storyline.

    @LNCPapa Get back to FB.

    @aspleme Lol HL sucks.

    Actually - my comment about a dislike button was directed toward another poster - but I guess it applies to you as well. Why not grow a pair and post as an actual user instead of a guest.

  15. @LNCPapa What's the matter, boy? Grow a pair? What are we in, like the 3rd grade? We start using third grade terminology now lol.

    Cool, can't wait to check it out. I still feel these game types are on their way out though. Everyone is getting bored with a single player campaign where you fight aliens. Granted, many of us in our 30's will get all nostalgic and hopefully, like this game. I tried with Duke Nukem Forever, but it just didn't work for me. Let's hope this reboot does better. And I know it has nothing to do with the story, but next gen graphics always helps sell a game.

    I'm also hoping devices like the Oculus Rift will breathe new life into this genre.

    investing in a new IP costs 10 times more money. if the game is good who cares if they reuse the name?

  19. The soul of the original doom was John Romero, it was he who designed many of the glorious levels
    the key to make a good doom game: MAKE UNREALISTIC LEVELS!!!

    im sick of freakin realism in games, the original doom had crazy shaped rooms and passageways, and the limitation of no floor on top of another floor was a strength I think
