Doom is apparently making a come back
Meh, they should have left it buried tbh.
Agreed. Nothing about this sounds good in any way.
Basically Doom3 wasn't a doom game.
I thought Doom 3 was pretty bad in a lot of ways and really didn't care for.
The art style is purely a subjective thing and it certainly was different from the style in the classic games, I'll give you that. In terms of the gameplay however I feel the reason they took that approach (mostly narrow corridors with monsters surprising you) was due to how new the engine was. They probably weren't comfortable going for the all out gore-infested shooting fest seen in the earlier games because of the novelty of the engine. Also, the engine itself was technically impressive at the time (and still is imo) and going for that type of open world feel would've been very taxing on most systems. People have taken the engine to its full capability with mods like sikkmod and boy does the game look beautiful, even by today's standards. Add to the fact that many people have made custom levels that even replicate the feel of the original games and you get a totally awesome experience that could have been Doom 3 if the engine was utilized to its fullest.
Live long and prosper.

Just like the Doom movie wasn't a doom movie. Its still good, just not for being what is was.
I personally like Doom 3 although its no where as good as the first two.
Two wrongs don't make a right, but two negatives do make a positive.

Did you just say the doom movie is good?

Doom3 was fantastic if you enjoyed an entire game of cat-scare moments, peashooter weapons, and toggling the flashlight pointlessly as you ran around waiting for the next monster to predictably jump around the corner.

Its good in its own corny way and you know it. Just like all those horrible chinese movies that are soo bad they are good.

Don't make up excuses for liking terrible movies; I don't subscribe to the 'So bad it's good' concept. Things can be cheesy and still be good (eg. Wolfenstein The New Order). The Doom film was just plain bad.
Last time Id software made anything good was in 1993.
Miami Heat not champions of 2014.

How is this guy possibly saying that? A Doom 3 fanboy, perhaps?
