I've still got all the DOOM's, Shadow warrior classic redux, and Duke Nukem 3D in my backlog. Are they really worth finishing, or have I basically "beaten" the whole game because I experienced the first 5 chapters or whatever?
Yeah that's pretty much it. I mean in Shadow Warrior, it's pretty funny, but nothing that will really grab my attention. I think I'm more of someone who wants a story. So...should I put it in Junk or Completed? I don't really like it, but at the same time I've technically experienced the game...
Short answer: its not for you. You should stop playing. Anyone that likes this sort of deep FPS gameplay that those games offer knows from playing it just a bit, and keep playing it for that reason. The gameplay, the level design and the variety of it is amazing in those old shooters, but they don't stray away from what they are, nor should they.
Its a kind of game where I can constantly come back to and play again, because the way its designed makes it fun even the 50th time, and I can always improve, or find new things or tricks or ways to play. Every level is a completely different challenge to learn, explore and overcome.
Its definitely not for everyone, no matter how much I love that sort of FPS, I can say that much.
I would go ahead and say no, with maybe one or two exceptions. The exceptions are those shooters that you do not just play for the gameplay, but also for the overall ambiance and story. An example would be Half life 2. I think that game is still enjoyable because of the focus on the narrative.

Nothing feels better than finishing a classic shooter. The simple fact is they are very hard the later it goes on it's like bragging about finish Dark Souls in this day and age. They're tough nuts to crack and you should be proud when you do it.
