How good did you think Doom(2)'s graphics were back when the game was new?

Kind of one-sided, don't you think?

Edit: Ah, that's better. The wonders of 'edit poll'.

I lost my breath when I saw Doom. I had been told that the graphics were much better than Wolf3d, but this was beyond what I had imagined - dammit, the weapons looked so real back then.

I think Doom's graphics are just good enough to make you feel involved in the game (even anno 2002). And that's really only how good they need to be. Level design and gameplay is much more important than graphics as long as that one criterium is fulfilled. Wolfenstein 3d for example doesn't look good enough to make me feel involved in the game and thus it sucks. Quake3 and Doom both look good enough, but since Doom has better gameplay, Doom > Q3.

This will all probably change when a photorealistic game comes along. Maybe Doom3, maybe not until many years into the future. With such a game on the market, everything else will look hopelessly unrealistic and wont allow for the same level of immersion in the game anymore. Just like what happened in 1993 when Doom was released.

I thought Lament was on about Dooms graphics.

Just because I have a lower post count than Lament dosen't make me stupid! You all get angry WAY too easily.
