Well, it IS a remake of the original game, not two. I have certainly seen them mention it was made in the original shareware Doom release model, but perhaps that was after the fact. Doom 4 is supposed to be like Doom 2, FYI.

Yeah you're right, fair enough man.

I agree with this, mostly. I also thought Rage was a disappointment and quit it halfway through. I think you nailed it in regards to them being scared to change much but throwing in token innovations that don't really pan out like the flashlight or racing.

I had to put it down quite a few times but I eventually finished it. I really do like id software, I feel for them because in many ways they're the commercial equivalent of the awkward uncle who can't relate to his nephew or whatever. I bought Rage for full price on release day like an idiot, I always drink the id koolaid because I really want to believe they can recapture that fun design methodology I used to love.
