This is more directed to the older gamer who were around and playing Doom during it's heyday. And for those of you who do not know what Doom is, Doom is the old shooter game that basically made the FPS genre what it is today.
Reboots of older games tend to be a mixed bag. While some are done very well, others almost tarnish the greatness of the series it's trying to recreate for newer consoles. Do you think the reboot of Doom will be just as great, if not greater, than the originals, or do you think it'll be a flop?

oh boy, this is a big one. I have to sit down for this
Ok, this is just a hunch but notice how a new wolfenstein came out, now we've got Doom so a new quake game should be next, maybe even a new W:ET after that
Anyway lets get down to business, one thing that can make or break a game is the level design, I had no problems with the design in Doom 1 & Doom 64 but Doom 2 & 3 I didn't really like them
Doom 2 tried too hard to throw you off balance by placing a lot of traps. . . there's literally a map called traps and tricks I think that says it all.
Now with Doom 3 I get that you're inside the base and everything but it's too damn small ! You barely have any room to move around it's just one narrow corridor after another, you don't even have to explore much. It was like trench warfare in space
It looks like the levels are a bit more open in Doom 4, if it takes inspiration from 1 & 64 even better. More space = better gameplay in my opinion
When it comes to multiplayer I think Doom 4 will do well, it isn't just there like it was in doom 3, doom 3 mp was just worthless. And here's the thing, you can play co-op in Doom 1 & 2 but you can't in 3 BFG? that's a real head scratcher. Well you can play co-op on PC but you had to get a mod for that and if you were on PS? Forget about it
There are co-op and versus modes confirmed which is good, plus they're already giving out map making tools
Ok, I better wrap things up now, I could write a lot more. So in summary. With the versus multiplayer clan arena, freeze tag (very popular on quake live) plus the map tools I think this will be the best multiplayer Doom experience
When it comes to single player it's hard to say if it'll be good or bad, the E3 gameplay was kind of like a speed run. . . hmm. . . *rubs chin* I'd need to hear some leaks
I should be asleep. . . now I'm just rambling
Oh, I almost forgot that a different version Doom 4 was in the works but it was completely scrapped so that's a good sign
@Mesonfielde ^ that's what DooMguy thinks
P. S. GAG took my gif away
I think I just had a doomgasm
I was going to write about sound but I kept things short and that character limit is coming up 2273/25002
