most of these people arguments dont add up either. doom 3 wasnt like the originals, oh it should be identical. oh, its too simple , why cant it be complex you should all be locked up in a life size goatse model. that'd teach ya
Μαjïç MushrøøMI agree. Doom 3 brings back the simple nature of computer games as they were back in the ninties, except now with far more advanced graphics and somewhat improved gameplay dynamics to go with. Those who grow bored with the game so early are spoiled by the experience of what FPS and TPS games have become: overly sophisticated in their gameplay and tactics.
Well put. That's exactly what appealed to me most in Doom 3. That's the way I like to play games. And the whole Half-Life 2/Doom 3 thing is starting to bother me... Here's what I think about HL2: IT BLOWS.

Just because HL2 wasn't as straightforward as Doom 3?

nah, more like a d3 fanboy ;) I played both games and while I think D3 has great graphics, the game does blow IMO. The game has been deleted from my HD for sometime now and I sold the game for $10 bucks :lol: How could anyone say HL2 blows? The gameplay, the graphics, the physics. Anywho, people will always have their opinions, and then there will be fanboys.
Games such as Max Payne, Age of Empires 2, FIFA 2002, Thief, Quake 3, Unreal Tournament, Need For Speed Underground 2 etc deserve a worthy mention as some of the greatest games of all time, which have reached the peak of their respective genres
Where is SOF2 in that mix??? I mean, it's only the greatest FPS ever!

That last statement is a matter of opinion, mind you. Many people are going to be enticed and entertained by Doom 3's old-school style of gameplay, whereas many who are used to more modern styles of FPS/TPS shooters are going to find it boringly repetitive.
People are always saying, " Oh Doom 3 is so mcuh like the original, it has old style gamesply, id was trying to stick to what they did a long time ago." Also you said Doom 3 doesn't need puzzles and all that it does too have puzzles! I love a lot of fps's that don't have puzzles, I like Call of Duty (which does not inclue puzzles). Call of Duty has a dynamic story, while 5 hours later your still in Alpha labs YIPPIE!!!! LETS FIND ANOTHER PDA AND LISTEN to these people;s depressed stories about how their lifes suck and then i'll be able to go onto the next room and find another pda to continue on....etc. IMO everyone says Doom 3 has great graphics, probably because they put all their energy into making basically the same repeated level. I think the reason why fps's had this repetitive style back in the 90's was because it was all so new and the designers didn't really know what to develop so they say hey "Lets give them a bunch of guns and let them blast mindless kamikaze from room to room to room" I think designers evolved from that idea into the first person shooters we have now. So why take a step backwards? I don't get it, Doom 3 is such a terrible game in comparison to what is out now. It took my a month to complete because i was sooo tired of playing the same shit hour after hour after hour, how is that fun? Walk around in circle for 3 hours and you'll get the same enjoyment you would with Doom 3. I think everyone who has played this game feels this way in the back of their head in one way or another, but the fanboys who waited for years for this game cannot accept this... terrible, terrible game, and yes the shottie and machine gun sound terrible.Doom 3 is just a copy and pasted chore of a game. EDIT: And i hate how people say "Thats what mods are for"!!!! uhh that makes my blood boil, i would rather buy a game that i actually enjoy then have to install these mods to make the game fun. You could mod any game to the style of doom 3 if that is your argument!
CoD is repeditive, too, squirrel. shot enemy, move to new cover. shoot enemy, move to new cover, dodge a frag. shoot enemy. move to new cover do obj.

Ha and Half life 2 won game of the year!!! good for it. It appears that i'm not the only one that feels the way i do. People say, oooooo but it sticks to the original well i remember the original being like 15 years ago, so maybe its time to become original id. Im sticking to my title, Doom 3 Blows, bigest waste of money this year.
Biggest disappointment because people had way too big expectations. In a stupid comparison, people wanted a god, Id gave them an angel and they thought it was the devil.
