All I can tell you is my future kids' are not getting video games until the first one reaches 8. In all fairness, I shouldn't buy them a system at all, I had to pay for my Super Nintendo with my own money. My dad helped, but I had to pay him back....

If someone released a series of toys/dolls based on the Sanhedrin of the first century of A.D., I could care less. By the reasoning on that story, I should be pissed...they killed Jesus.

54. Re: No subject Sep 19, 2004, 17:01 Ronin
 
Was the game revolutionary? NO! If every game was revolutionary, every idea would have been used already. Was it fun? YES! Why was it fun? Sometimes blowing the brains out (literally) of hordes of mindless (no pun intended) enemies is fun. Very stress relaxing. It was also rather freaky. Yes they repeated some scares but not every single time. If the game didn't make you at least jump a little, you need to throw away those shitbox Labtech 2.0 speakers, and invest in a 5.1 system, preferrably in the 400 watt+ range. You also need to turn the lights off, close the damn door, and play at night. If that still doesn't screw with you, you need to stop suckling Clive Barker's and Stephen King's nipples. I weep for those desensitized so much. You go into the game with a jaded opinion of it, you're going to hate it. You go into the game not knowing what to expect, and for GOD'S SAKE, let yourself get INVOLVED in the game, you'll have a much better experience.

It's a fundamental truth. You try something expecting to hate it...guess what...you will hate it.

You never did read the bible, did you?

I'm thinking not...the Bible is one of the most brutally violent and sexual books ever...to be literally turned into a movie would warrant an NC-17 rating.

there's almost always romance in a movie. wonder what doom would have in store? FPS sex?

There was romance in the Doom books...it was a female marine...just as much of a badass as he was.

As one person rightly pointed out, the zombies in this game would have scared 13 year old girls in the 60's, but not anymore. At least not for me

I think a zombie may have gave me the chills once...but most of my chills (never literally jumped, as I said, Undying cured me of that) came from the hell baby things. And I obviously don't know what your home setup is like, but this game NEEDS to be played with 5.1 or a really good set of headphones, and in the dark.

Dumb AI? Are we playing the same game? Zombies crouching behind a box, jumping up or out just to fire...Imps, side jumping to dodge your bullets.

Yes, Doom/Doom 3 has almost exactly the same storyline as Half Life About the only thing that alters the gameplay was level loads, which I admit sucked...felt like it was the old days of "exits." Half Life had exactly the same "go here, turn this on, flip this switch, so you can open this door/kill this monster." Doom 3 did this, but with PDAs.

And for those of you that claim it wasn't scary...either you seriously need to get your brain checked, or you're not playing it right. And by playing it right, I mean at night, no external light, 5.1 surround sound, and the volume cranked. I was tempered by Undying for crying out load, and it still managed to freak me out in a few spots.

I'm tired, and I know I missed some points I wanted to counter, so if anyone wants to bring it up, I'll counter it.

DOOM 3 is/has:
A remake of THE classic FPS.
A horror/thriller game that suceeded (by popular opinion) in that respect.
The best system bending graphics ever.
A simple shooter.

DOOM 3 isn't/doesn't have:
-A super compelling storyline (NO SHIT...it's a remake dumbasses)
-Spectacular physics (they did the physics engine in-house...to do one as good as Havoc would have probably taken another year)
-Superb replay value (which may change with mods)

I seriously think that a lot of negativity towards the game is due to people not playing it in the right environment.

System Shock 2 came out in what, 98? That would make everyone a good 6 years younger. Average gamer age, 22, that's 16...a little bit easier to scare than a 20-something. I know a guy that actually stopped playing DOOM 3, couldn't play any more, and sold it...not because he hated the game, but because mentally (and spiritually) he couldn't handle it....

I'll be buying Half Life 2 in a few months. And I'll enjoy it. Dabble in the multiplayer. And then return to Desert Combat/Battlefield Vietnam/Battlefield 2 for my continued enjoyment. And probably somewhere around Christmas, I'll start playing through DOOM 3 again.

OK, don't get me wrong, HL2 itself looks spectacular, on par with DOOM 3 in a different way.

But CS: Source...all it looks like is that they reskinned it, and added some physics and effects...it doesn't look better than regular CS in the same way that HL2 looks better than Half Life.

122. Scare Factor Aug 7, 2004, 05:13 Ronin
 
The last game that terrified me to the point of not being able to play at night was Clive Barker's Undying.... DOOM 3 is scary...but not as much.

It's enough to make me slightly jump, skin crawl, goose bumps, increase heart-rate...but not stop playing to turn on the lights sort of freaky.

Frightening situations...the hell cherub things...fighting a monster, backing up into another...and other things.

The point is, those of us who played Undying (http://www.penny-arcade.com/view.php3?date=2001-03-09&res=l) or System Shock have been tempered...we've already played an incredibly terrifying game. DOOM 3 could be that for us...but our game terror virginity has been stripped.

Yes, it's worth buying. It's the kind of game where you don't need a whole lot of monsters.

Fans of games like Splinter Cell, Thief, and Deus Ex type games won't like it because "it's not complicated enough!" (said in nasaly nerd voice).

Talked to a bud at Best Buy...they're supposed to be getting it on the 2nd...that's the listed "in stock" date. I used to work at Best Buy, and "in stock" sometimes actually means on the shelf.

But I'd be willing to bet the ad will say something about it, and I'll be getting the paper shortly, and will post.
