A fear of mine for Eternal

Recommended Posts

From all the gameplay I've seen for Eternal, I think it could possibly be game of the year. I pre-ordered the game a couple weeks ago and have really high hopes for it. But there's something that they're focusing too much on in my opinion: The Story.

 

Doom 2016 was an amazing game for me. The Doom slayer literally threw the story across the room in the opening 5 minutes. It focused purely on gameplay and basically nothing else. The story was simple, but if you really wanted more you could read all the Codex, Descriptions and Slayer Testaments. In Eternal, i'm excited to see things like if the Doom slayer is 1993 & 94 Doomguy, but other than that nothing else in the story really interests me aside from that and maybe more about the Knight Sentinels. 

 

I'm worried that they might make it so "If you don't read Codex 6 and Testament 4, You won't understand why Doom slayer is doing this." but i'm sure they won't.

 

I fully believe that this could be the greatest Doom game to come out, and there's really no other way to screw this game up from all the footage we've seen.

 

TL;DR: I'm slightly worried about id focusing too much on the story.

honestly, I wouldn't worry too much about it. id's made it pretty dang clear that gameplay's taking the spotlight once again, and I'm sure they'll give you enough during the few story scenes to keep context for everything you're doing.

They've stated that the story will be there for those who want to go looking for it. They won't shove it in your face. Refer to this interview with Hugo Martin and how he explains that they beginning of Doom 2016 is the way it is because it used to be a bunch of superfluous nonsense that no one cares about.
