Get BFG is you are worried about gamepad support. it's a little different, as in lighting and the flashlight. In BFG you get a flashlight attached to your body instead of having to constantly swap it out for other weapons. it also has more content and its also meant for more gamers. But if you are fond of the original one then get it. I would have to say the original pc one is more scarier for all the wrong reasons and that BFG is just jump scares that you can see the original its just really dark and annoying. its like comparing a well lit area with a dark room which would you rather be in? the well lit room being bfg and the dark room being the original. Get BFG if your main concern is controller support. I got it for the same reason and I dont regret it.

This Doom has mod support though. BFG doesn't.

Another thing to keep in mind is if you have an ATI card, it can be a pain in the ♥♥♥ to get the Sikkmod to work properly.

bfg is better if you dont care about mods and the fact multiplayer is dead. get it mainly bc of way more content and the controller support, careful i keep getting a opengl error on my tv with bfg but other tvs work fine. This is coming from someone who has both versions. im personally feeling the original is a lot more scary due to half the game being pitch black lol.

"way more content"? The countless number of mods for the game already provide way more content than the BFG edition. Including coop support.

Pretty much this. Original Doom 3 has way more mods.

Coop was the main reason (along with other mods) why I like the original more.

Here are many of them here (to those that are intersted): http://doom3.filefront.com/

BFG edition has not only altered the game in bad ways, it has also cut content out.

That's correct, the BFG Edition CUTS CONTENT FROM THE ORIGINAL GAME.

Among the many things and features that have been cut from the BFG addition, the removal of what many consider to be the most fun part of the RoE expansion's hell area was cut, all arcade/mini-games (such as Hellanoid and Martian Buddy Blaster) except for Super Turkey Turbo Punch have been removed. Several shadows have been removed, etc. etc.

They did far more/worse than just turning the lights up/over brightening scenes.

Also the "Lost Mission" is largely cut/pasted sections of levels from the original and expansion and is thrown together rather haphazardly.

The original Doom games included are also missing content, altered and have several quality-issues and errors such as sound effect sampling problems.

Save your money and buy the original. Use a 3rd-party tool for gamepad support if it's that important.

If you aren't console: PC = THE ORIGINAL.
Although it's pretty weird to want gamepad support for a game centred around the Holy Mouse+Keyboard
