MS' (and many other companies') QA are going downhill for everything. I hope you guys are making backups often too just in case! I'll hold onto reliable 64-bit W7 as long as I can like I did 32-bit Windows XP Pro SP3.

I'd like the old style DOOM too, as most people here keep saying, but you can modernize old DOOM a bit by grabbing the Doomsday engine and applying all the texture packs and 3D monster/item models. It won't look as nice as this, but it's as close as you're going to get. Unless you liked DOOM 3's engine/physics and download the classic level mods for that (Which aren't as good)
Ha. I still remember when old DOOMers were complaining about DOOM 3 like the darkness, no flashlights, etc. I still enjoyed DOOM 3 (still have its retail box) even though it wasn't good as original DOOM.

I liked Doom 3, but it's not Doom. I have a friend who actually doesn't like Doom 2016 because he wanted it to be like Doom 3.
Haha. What did he think of original DOOM then?

Wish they would put more effort into the music, just a constant rumble sound isn't a good soundtrack.

I guess id can't afford Trent Reznor any longer.
I remember his music in Quake 1. I wasn't crazy about its soundtracks though. I prefer classic DOOM's MIDI soundtracks even if they were in crappy FM MIDI.

I grew up on Doom and I don't understand how anyone can call these games "Doom". The only thing they have in common with Doom is that they're first-person shooters, where the weapons and enemies visually superficially resemble their former selves.

Level design is abysmal, the Serious Sam-inspired "spawn arena" mechanics aren't Doom at all, movement is slow and laggy, weapons lack the oomph, the cutscene kill system is retarded, and the music, which used to be expressive and melodic, is now just sandpaper being rubbed against a microphone.

Do you REMEMBER Doom, folks? This ain't no fuckin' Doom. It's a mediocre satire of Doom, made by a bunch of retarded monkeys.
I understand the rant and sympathize with it, but as others said, 1993 was a long time ago. Pretty memorable game.
Remember Doom III (and how it was compared to the first game) and its mechanical dog in the bathroom? Pretty memorable game.
I can hardly remember anything really memorable about the new DOOM... call the police. Policeman Policeman
I miss the old days.

Too bad I'm too old now to be competitive... I used to love dominating Q3A and UT using brains and lightning quick reflexes. Map control,
sound awareness, item spawn awareness, baiting with controlled items/map sections, optimizing roaming patterns etc.

Unless they got some bots fun going in the retail build, I think I'll pass. But HAVE FUN KIDS! This is a great game for 35s and younger.
I hope you mean too old as in not enough time.
Or are you like 70?
Should be no problem getting back into it and start owning again. Just need some training, as in playing 6h+ a day.
Poes Law right?
I don't think any amount of training can return the quick twitch (non carpal tunnel damaged) nerves and skills that we had in our 20's.

Because there is not one person in this photo of a recent tournament who is a day over 27.

Yeah right.
I am 41 myself and I can own 20 year olds, if I commit to it like a 20 year old who has a lot of time.
I tested it last year with CSGO for a few months. It all came back to me. The problem is most old people simply dont have enough time. They have a full time job, family and other responsibilities, or even hobbies.
I never believed this "youre to old for this and that", because most of the time its simply not true. If you believe it, its true, because you make yourself fail with a pessimistic view like that.

+1
All this.
But 32 here.
Who is the oldest in here? I'm old as Blue!

Eh, it's for the newer generation. To me, it looks decent. Now, I would love someone to recreate the original classic DOOM for this engine!

Eh. I'd rather stick with original Quake games. I still need to unlock the original CD game I got for 99 cents from a local estate sale.

21. Bought the original Q1's retail CD (no box) for 99 cents, but... Jun 25, 2018, 07:16 Ant
 
From a local estate sale a few months ago. However, I cannot figure how to unlock it after installing it in FreeDOS in VirtualBox. I also noticed there are other id Software games on it. Am I missing something?

2 for its short test.
22 for its full test.

My old compound eyes and/or ASUS V5247H LED 1080p monitor (VGA+Y2K OmniCube 2-ports KVM) suck.
