No one respects the classics.

Yeah man,we get it. Doom's a great game. Have you downloaded Brutal Doom yet?
(but seriously,the moderators might lock up your thread,maybe you should consider posting on /v/ or something)

Doom (and some older games) sadly don't appeal to some "modern" gamers, for lack of tutorials, hand holding, and "top of the line" graphics. Its sad that gameplay has been thrown aside in favor of achievment whoring and cinimatic cutscenes, but I doubt I would enjoy playing with idiots who care only for graphics and achievment anyway.

Also like music said, careful with your threads. You did that one copypasta one, and we don't really appreciate it.

another thing to consider, those hours don't accurately reflect playtime since it doesn't include playtime on source ports. (without tweaking first) and 95% of people use source ports.

Tutorials aren't even needed, you play one shooter you've played them all. Just press a bunch of buttons at random to figure out what does what. It's pretty simple. I never played Call of Duty ever and this guy had me over his house and I was killing him in split screen and he is like "I thought you never played call of duty before?! HOW DID YOU EVEN STAB ME?!!!!!!!!!"

Story and graphics really dumb down gameplay. I rather have great gameplay over a story at least. Dark Souls has great gameplay and a great story that doesn't try to focus on the story itself.

Yes, I agree but this thread is kind of redundant.

Mate... i have 0h on steam Doom, i bought it just for the simplicity of downloading the WAD anywhere from steam, i think by now EVERYONE has their favorite sourceport.

Also, i disagree with your second post, to me story is either hit or miss, either your game is story focused or gameplay focused, of course there are rare exceptions.

My favorite game of all time is Baldur's Gate (the trilogy), that game has simply has the best storyline i have ever had the pleasure of playing through. Doom & Build Engine games "families" have one of the best gameplay i did ever played and they eacg have their respective merits

I do agree with you on graphics though, visual quality is something that is sadly superficial and utterly forgetable, yet it is highly bragged/hyped about thesedays.

Maybe its just me, but i am not someone who stops to admire how high rez a certain texture is.

Sound and voice acting is also something that can be good or bad for a game, but its usually overlooked by anyone reviewing a game.

Interesting gameplay & story takes real creative skill to make it good. Graphical quality doesnt (unless your game is making a new groundbreaking graphical style).

Brutal Doom on Black Metal difficulty is ♥♥♥♥ing hard.

Brutal Doom is on of those silly OTT mods I do enjoy, these old games do not translate well on large HD screens, but seem to work well enough visually on the Labtop.

I am not a total graphics ♥♥♥♥♥ but Doom is a very 'old' series of games.

Your using a TV monitor? if so, that would be the problem. If your using a widescreen monitor, it should come with a 4:3 aspect ratio changer (at least Samsung ones do) and you should change to 4:3 before playing Doom.

Remember that TV monitors have those silly resolutions that most games dont even support.

Oh yeah, i can only imagine. i am not a fan of big sized screens (i like to sit close to my monitor), i currently use my 16:10 for gaming, but it took me a long time to leave my 4:3 behind.

To be fair I think most people are using only sourceports I'll say too. I tried to play directly off steam and it didn't even work. I couldn't have my time tracked even if I wanted to, steam hasn't put up a product that works with Windows 8 it seems.

There IS a work around of renaming the source port "dosbox" but thats iffy.

Doom is great and very under appreciated even though it has pixel graphics I'd still rather play doom than most FPSe's nowadays.
