How do you feel about Bethesda/id pulling Doom 3 from Steam after the BFG Edition?
(Technically you can buy it in the ID pack for a ridiculous price)

I think it's kind of sleezy. It wasn't pulled on the day BFG Edition came out either. I think the original Doom 3 got a sales spike because people interested in the BFG Edition were hearing about all of the complaints coming from people who bought it and then discussing the original with a number of mods being a VASTLY superior experience. Then people starting buying the original Doom 3 to try out the game with the mods they had heard about and Bethesda/id said "Oh no you don't!" and pulled it from Steam.

I think their greed is honestly ridiculous here. You could say that it's smart business decision, but how do you think their customers and fans feel after that?

Anyways, what are your thoughts on this?

Annoyed to be honest. Was planning on buying the original after hearing the negative feedback for the BFG edition. Guess I'll just skip it all together now.

Yeah I was waiting to see the BFG release before deciding which version to get and was miffed to find the original AWOL. Simply bought it elsewhere in the end.

I'll bet that this move caused a lot of traffic to Doom 3 on torrent sites. They weren't happy with making money because they wanted even MORE money and now they're going to get zero money even when/if it ever comes back on Steam because people went to go pirate it instead.

Well it IS still available from other online shoppies (as a Steam activated product), although I did wind up paying a few quid more than the D3+ROE pack used to cost on Steam itself.

Can you link me to one of them? Just I'd prefer to buy it legally.

That's literally the only place I found and I guarantee you it won't be up there for long. What's more pathetic is that Bethesda still allows the Mac version of DOOM 3 to be sold everywhere else because there is no BFG Edition for Mac.

I should warn you that the link sells you a Steam code for DOOM 3. Who knows if that'll even work with Bethesda being so anal about DOOM 3 being sold.

I bought it from the UK version of that site and it activated fine. Runs far smoother on my (t)rusty old desktop than any new release could hope to -- it really could do with being in the Steam store, even if only as the low-spec option.

I just want to buy the superior version and now they wont sell it? Im not buying BFG
XenoLair 26 de Oct, 2012 a las 16:11 
Why would they pull it? It was only like 10€ cheaper than BFG so they were still making nice money on it. How silly. I bought the game a while ago and its still in my inventory. I hope I can actually redeem in now.

Well I tried it and it works so thank you. I'm from the UK so I dont know how American Gamefly users will fare. Good luck to everyone else.

Consummers voice should be heard. How can I still buy Doom or Doom II for 10$ and not Doom 3, it's insulting.

Thank god I bought it before this happened. ♥♥♥♥ BFG Edition.

In all seriousness, this is just ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. Bethesda is just making themselves look even more ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ then they already are.

I'm pretty ♥♥♥♥ed off to be honest. I've always wanted to play Doom 3 with the Sikkmod etc. I actually was going to buy the original the day after they removed it from the store. Weak. I'd still be willing to purchase the BFG edition if they released a pack with mod support (the only reason many ppl would buy this game in the first place) and reinstallment of all of the features they originally cut (e.g. muzzle flashes in the original lit up the environment, in BFG they don't)

theyre all back up on steam

I already owned Doom 3 and resurrection of Evil, so I have no issues, lololololol.
I'd actually like an option to trade in my Doom 3 and Expansion for a discount for the cost of the BFG edition since I have a 3D TV.
