I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.

Well if it's your first time playing, I recommend not using any mods for the first playthrough. Although Brutal Doom is amazing, as in any game it's always best to play the original experience without mods first.

I think that any basic engine replacer that lets you play in 1080p and adds mouse aim is a nice upgrade. Brutal Doom goes further by replacing the pistol with an assault rifle, adding headshots, stuff like that.
Yeah that I can understand for 1080p/widescreen and esp mouse aim because it's a different era of controls, but anything like Brutal Doom is too far imo. Brutal Doom isn't just minor graphical update, it's a complete overhaul of mechanics, sounds, gameplay, speed, difficulty, and heart. It's a completly different experience and would ruin that chance to feel the original Doom.

But hey, do what you want. It's your time lol.

Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

I don't even like Brutal Doom very much. The sound design is kind of bad, hard to just tell you why. The gameplay is utterly changed for the worst. Its only real benefit is its bloody. Which is nice, but I wouldn't sacrifice the gameplay for it. It is a complete overhaul and frankly, it utterly destroys what Doom is. You like it, fine, but trying to get every newcomers through it is just painfully annoying.

Play Doom on something like ZDoom to have modern functionalities, high res, mouse look etc, and thats it.

Just grab a source port like Zdoom. That way you can still play the game close to its original form, but with things like updated resolution and control options.
