What do your friends think of Doom?
I'm like the only person in my humble town who plays this masterpiece. All of my friends often send me messages on Steam trying to discourage me from playing it, by bringing up ignorant points on the graphics and "outdated" gameplay.
Someone actually made a GIF for me with sound saying, "Brandon, stop playing doom! It sucks!"

I used to had a friend that played doom on some type of console, but he moved away.
Also a quarter of my family plays Doom.

Most of the modern games are crap, and yes, Doom does have outdated graphics but you should not judge the game by graphics, (Well, you can but don't make that just the problem)
And the gameplay is great in my opinion, I do use a sourceport to add jumping, crouching and looking up and down to make it feel alittle bit more like Quake but that's about it.

Doom has alot of crazy stuff, killing demons from hell is one thing, and the other is all the crazy weapons and how fast you are. Recognize that Doom shotgun from somewhere else? It's a toy from a toys store that the creators took pictures of. How about that plasma rifle? It's just the back of some toy machine gun.

But here's is the real problem, they should not get you to stop playing a game you enjoy. (Unless if it's a problem of you playing for hours and hours)

Copy paste this to your friends that said that to you.

Edit: oh god all those grammar mistakes

Doom is better than any cod or any other modern day FPS.

Without DOOM no other FPS games will be right now, will still have old games.

I slightly don't agree, something would still come out that would target the modern games to exist.

Well because Doom had better FPS engine than Wolfenstein 3D, without moving around like block of ice (I don't hate Wolfenstein 3D), you can move like in real life in Doom, bouncing up and down while walking and weapon left and right. Improved engine I say.

Isn't Wolfenstein capable of strafing?

Dude no, they created a special engine it's a fat chance that they would make TF2 or CoD without DOOM engine

Nope, when Id made Doom it was a success so they decided to make another game called Quake, which is true 3D. (Half-Life 1 uses the Quake engine, and Valve was inspired by Doom) Later on Id made Quake 3 which Call of Duty used that engine, Call Of Duty was probbably inspired from something like CounterStrike which the modding community created and Valve taking over the game and made it a product.

What I'm saying is most of these games are pretty much related to Doom in a way. But if Doom never existed then there is a good chance modern games could still be created in someway from something else (There is a bad chance that the same type of franchises like Cod or any other product won't exist, or is just almost different)

Oh, and my grammar sucks.

Better engine, so other developers can make more better engine.

I was unlucky enough to never exerience Doom when it was launched on the PC. I was a console gamer (I know, I know) and this is where I first found Doom on the PSX age 13-14. I was hooked on it for a long time. When I discovered the joys of pc gaming at 20ish.....I bought the classic doom bundle. I think it is better that all the AAA titles and modern shooters. My friends think it looks crap so it must be crap. How wrong can a person be. "Here....have a go" I said. Hooks firmly planted after a few attempts.

This game has a flavour, a style, a charm and a massive appeal. So simple to understand the objective but often mayhem to get there. Spice it up with mods like Brutal Doom and it just gets better and better. I often fire up Stalker games and my mind talks to me "shut this down you ♥♥♥ hat....play dooooooooom!" and I really enjoy stalker.

For some reason all my friends think it sucks and when I tell them about Brutal Doom they don't listen.

Wow, it seems like people reject anything with "Doom" in the title.

To be fair...that word often reminds me of my partner =)

I wanted to slap my friends who complained about the graphics comparing the game to crysis or witcher 2!!!!! I gave my friend thief gold as a gift & he also complained about the graphics knowing that its 1998 game!

Hey just invite them over and sit them down on Doom for an hour. if they still dislike it they are a lost cause.
