People complain that it is too simplisitic, or straightforward, etc. What they don't realize is that's what makes it DOOM! It's not supposed to be complicated or have a detailed plot, or whatever stupid expectation some of these people have. Quoting from the manual of the original Doom, it is an "action-oriented slugathon" and that is EXACTLY what Doom 3 is. Which makes it the perfect sequel. It brought back the old weapons and most of your favorite monsters. People who were disappointed by it obviously have the wrong idea about what a Doom game is, and is not, supposed to be. :mad:

Agreed. Hey, why you removed that Fallout 2 quote signature? That was better. :lol:

I agree with that as well. I seriously wonder what people were expecting when they heard the words Doom and 3 before the release. An intense heart-wrenching tale? Dramatic storylines out of a Final Fantasy game? Tactical combat ala *Insert Tom Clancy game here*? Seriously. It's Doom.

Ditto. I agree 100%, its Doom, its what makes it fun... About those bastards dissing Doom 3 on the forums.... If they hate it that much, why did they register?

Even worse, why did they waste their money? Couldn't they wait for the demo to come out?

This belongs more in the Rant forum...

Indeed, I fully agree as well. I think that people who have complained about Doom 3's simplistic gameplay have the wrong expectations regarding what it was meant to be in the first place. I believe they are more used to more complicated, strategy-oriented titles such as Counter-Strike and perhaps the Ghost Recon series. These are the types of people who prefer a genre that almost falls closer to that of strategy/RPG games; I see little or no raw action sequences programmed into these other games that could be deemed anywhere near a slugfest.

I just don't get why they post in a Doom 3 forum full of fans, we obviosuly don't appreciate the game being picked apart. Its not like any of us are going to "convert" and become Doom haters or anything :rolleyes: .

I think that's exactly what they're expecting. Unless they're just assholes. "100 posts saying it's too dark? Well...now that I think about it, it is pretty dark..."

From the way people post about it, I would guess it's for dishing soup. Oh wait...
