There's a DOOM III Q&A on GameSpot where they catch up with id Software's Tim Willits, lead designer on the upcoming remake of their seminal first-person shooter. They include a quite groovy new screenshot, and discuss the game's single-player play, as well as what sort of multiplayer support is planned. One of Tim's answers offers hope for the return to preeminence of one of the mainstays of the DOOM/DOOM II arsenal:

All the weapons in Doom III are fun to use, and each one serves a purpose in the game, depending on the situation the player is in, but I think my overall personal favorite is still the shotgun. It has a wide range of uses--good for picking bad guys off from a distance, and great for those in-your-face battles. When I have it up, I can almost feel it in my hands, the heavy metal feel and the feedback I get when I fire it right on. When I run out of shotgun ammo, I really begin to get scared.

I think your wrong, Doom still has great gameplay. Have you loaded it up played lately? Doom got so many things right I couldn't list them all. I think the one thing that it has over all other FSP games made since, is its shear speed of gameplay coupled with precise absolute rock solid control.
You say what was good once isn't dick now? You can't be serious. Speaking of Serious, Doom made now would be nothing like Serious Sam. Serious Sam took a few things from Doom and exaggerated it and didn't take pacing or level design in count. It is a much different game. If you can't tell that by playing, then oh well.
