    For one it felt scary instead of retarded. I won't go in depth more than that since I lack time. Read any one of a thousand comments that said Doom 3 is better than Doom 4.

    Uh, Doom 1 and 2 had similiar tone because they were 'scary'? Roight, when I was kid I might've been spooked once or twice by the sudden enemies coming from the trapdoors but that's about the extent of the horror it had. And I already addressed this in my post.

    But I reckon we can continue with tonal similiraties, like how Doom III tosses 3-5 enemies at you at once in most hectic situations, totally tonally correct with the fast paced gameplay of original Dooms. Just as is the marine in Doom III running at a pace that makes my grandfather blush from emphatetic shame. Jesus fucking Christ.

    The first half of the original Doom shareware episode had a more slow-paced and "scary" feel like Doom 3, and those levels are probably what most people played. I don't know if that was a factor in their decisions with Doom 3 or not.

    Yes.

    I'd still say Doom 3 was a bad Doom game, but it was a good horror game that had an identity. NuDoom is just an even shittier Brutal Doom. Retarded arena shooter with retarded glory kills, shitty soundtrack, monotonous level design and layout, unskippable cutscenes etc. It's utter shite and this new one looks even worse.

    Not sure how anyone could mention Metro 2033 and not mention Metro Exodus. It was a huge improvement imo and easily the best shooter I've played in the last few years.

    You can try Metro for $1 on Xbox Game Pass if you're brave enough to install some more spyware.

    Apparently, Black Mesa
    Doom3 was a bad game overall, its only saving grace was a phenomenal art design. Even sound was mediocre. As a shooter, it's very very bad, with cramped levels, uncreative fights and shitty weaponry. They should have made a survival horror instead, Doom3 would have made a great Alien Isolation-like ten years earlier.

    And no, it's not because Doom1 didn't throw you dozens of foes at once it means it was shitty as Doom3. Doom3 was rightfully savaged by the "old guard" when it was out because it was trying to ape Half Life so hard it's not even funny: cutscene focus and "industrial" level design. Doom3 is a bad Half Life clone, up to the point of aping the Gravity Gun in the expansion. Every enemy in Doom3 is beautifully designed and utterly wasted: from the endless shitty imp ambushes, from the Archviles, to the Mancubus boss fight to the real boss fights that are a complete travesty.

    It's very pretty to look at, though. If it was an horror game it would have been good, but it's too action-y for that and they even changed it in the Steam version to give you more ammo&guns to lessen the tension. Shitty design all around.


    NuDoom is Brutal Doom for the masses, yes. But it gets tiresome to repeat it ad nauseam to the sheep that bleat NEW BAD OLD GOOD NEW BAD OLD GOOD. Go replay Doom3 and enjoy the top-tier (lack of) design, then, and report. There was a reason everyone with a taste in 2004 shat on it, after all.


    Quake IV is a better game than Doom3. Prey for sure. Better as a horror game, even.

    So, young faggots are the ones believing that Doom III was a bad Doom game. Were you even sperm in your dad's balls when the originals were out?

    To this day, I still remember vividly the lamentation of the boring monster closet in the gaming IRC channel I used to frequent, so yes, and you're in the minority here. Doom 3 would not have stood anywhere near the light of the sun were it not for the fact that it was made with an highly innovative engine, that, to this day, hasn't been surpassed in how dynamic the lighting truly feels. As a tech demo it was impressive as hell when it was released, although these days people might not really get what's special about it because there are prettier (but not necessarily as dynamic looking) games.
    Doom 3's guns sound like utter garbage. They feel like garbage. The encounter design consists of spawning something behind you literally every 3 seconds.
    It's shit and you're hipster tier poster for bringing this.

    It came out at the same era as Half Life 2, another somewhat mediocre but still definitely more entertaining FPS than it, and of the two Doom 3 was quietly shoved into a corner and forgotten until nuDoom released and reminded people that the franchise was a thing.

    btw the monster closet has a fucking doom wiki page
    https://doom.fandom.com/wiki/Monster_closet
    It's hilarious

    And id reacting to the bad reaction to doom 3 :
    https://v1.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/7.131315-id-Promise-No-Monster-Closets-In-Rage

    And you know what? as soulless as Rage is, it's a better shooter than doom 3 by far.

    I liked Doom 3 ‘cause it was scary, which fell in line with the tone of the Doom I grew up with.



    I wouldn’t say Doom 2016 was bad, but I don’t see how spawning arenas full of enemies every two minutes and jumping around like a retard collecting power ups is any closer in tone to the originals.

    They are both bad. It isn't a game where one has to be good and the other bad.

    To be alive and live in a thread where there are delusional people defending Doom III. I've seen everything.
