Hello guys. Im tired of reading Doom 3 bashing. so im going to try to see if ppl agree or not with me. I remember more than 10 yesrs back when a friend of mine just Downloaded a Shareware that was very scary, DOOM.back then they used to called demos: shareware,my friend was so crazy about this "shareware" that he made me a copy and I remember he told me."Play it with the ligths out". well,after I installed my Doom on a 486 DX 33 with 16 meg of ram and a 4 meg VId card and 8 megs of HD space.I was blown away.I played that game almost 4 hours daily. hell I even cut class at collage just to get together to play the Shareware. until the day it was released.I remember I fake a big Cold just to get a whole week off to play DOOM. It wasnt the graphics,it wasnt the multiplayer mode that was pretty good. DOOM was about getting SCARED.not shooting like crazy. Do you remember going to a room with no mosters,then suddenly. the SOUND and a mob of imps on your back.do you remeber how you felt?. I do, and thats why I think DOOM 3 has done it again. Im almost 40 and im like a kid on my PC getting SCARED.It seams to me that many young players are custom to games like UT2K4,Painkiller,Battlefield.these games are fast. and not because they are FPS they all should function the same way.If you want a fast pace fragfest,get UT2K4.I have it on my PC too,but if you want to get the SCARE of your life.Play DOOM3 Like my friend told me all those years past."PLAY IT WITH THE LIGTHS OUT".I hope i dont offend anyone with my long story. but im really tired of ppl comparing this game with something thats no to be supposed compared to. c"mon guys. Share your story. Im not the only 39 + guy here? Im I?. ATT:AUCIROB

I was seven years old when my step dad first brought in the doom shareware. I was too young to care about the graphics and technology of the game and I just played it because it was fun. It didn't scare me except for the occasional sneak attacks sometimes.

Do you have any idea what kind of impact a game like that has on someone of that age? DooM was, is, and will always be one of my fondest memories EVER.

You might be right. I have similar memories. Because I was reading a thread where somone asked what monsters where in the original Doom vs Doom 3 monsters. Was alittle taken away, cause I can tell you every monster in the original Doom. So I think theres just to many critics trying to crack Id, not to mension Most people who play Doom 3 have not even beat the original, nor played much of it, cause this game is definatly nerve racking to play in the dark and a nice surround sound. But scary is abit far out for me to say.

I must agree that although I only had the opportunity to play the demo version of the original Doom, Doom 2 was one of my most vivid memories, since it left such a strong impression on me. I cannot count how many times I would open Doom 2 and start up a new game, merely for the experience of starting from the beginning and slowy...surely...working my way into the depth of the game, into the depths of hell. And as I did so the game became ever more moody. Now Doom 3 does the same, except I feel that it starts off quite moody, and that same atmospheric tension continues at approximately the same level thoughout the game (at least as far as I have come). So, Doom 3 leaves me an impression and a memory similar to the classic, except that it's modern level of realism plays on a slightly different set of senses that the original and it's sequel; Doom and Doom 2 immersed you in their dark worlds with a sense of being in a blury nightmare; Doom 3 holds you at a constant fear of being attacked around the next corner, therefore instead bringing out the 'fight or flight' instinct.

well, you may be the only 39+ man here but i think we all have memmories of the original DOOMs. hell, i remember watching my dad play wolf3d, Ultimate DOOM. i got into the games too. i even got to play 'can i play, daddy?' :-D

then, i was talking with a kid at school and we were talking about DOOM II. he was telling me abour the mancubus and the double barreled shotgun. i guess my dad heard about it too because a couple days later he came home with it. i watched him play, i played. and i loved every second of it.

i still play ultimate doom and doom ii. that fake exit on 'the halls of hell' scared the sh*t out of me. and guess what? i loved it :-D
