So I bought the ps4 doom slayer pack. Was only 20 dollars and got me the 2016 doom, the original doom with all 4 episodes, doom 2 and doom 3.
Been playing my way through the original doom. While also from time to time playing the 2016 version.
I only ever had the shareware version of doom, which was the first episode. Never had the other ones. Man, really loving this game. Only playing on the default difficulty. I think that's a nice mix of challenge and fun to be honest. Just want to relax and blow stuff up.
I love retro games. Berzerk and Frenzy and beat em ups are some of my favorite games. Recently I also got into playing burger time(finally beat not just the first level but also the 2nd... Still working on the 3rd). Anyway... Really, really loving doom.
Its just so fast and frenetic. And just fun. Something I think can be missing from modern games.
While playing I began to think. Doom would make for a really cool theme. You could do a retro themed, or modern themed... I'd prefer retro. But, you also could maybe combine the two and have the retro mode be a wizard mode. Or maybe you progress and the graphics get better and better as you progress through the game.
I just think so many cool opportunities for mechs and modes. The game wouldn't be for everyone. And in some regards it is an old persons theme and not youth driven. But, man... Cool art, GREAT music, and just a fun theme.
Don't know if it could ever happen. Was just a silly thought I had in my head. Mainly I can't wait to beat all the chapters in the first Doom and move on to Doom II... Yep basically 20 years after it came out I'll finally play it!
