baron of hell dislike?

Recommended Posts

am i the only one who dislikes the design of the '16 baron of hell? to me it feels like a derp face doofus

 

i think something like what these guys did, but with more naturalistic proportions would be way more intimidating

These versions look truer to the original but I don't reckon they will fit the Aesthetic of modern Doom as well.

 

The Doom 2016 Barons are good in my books. If anything I would make their face look more viscious with exposed jagged teeth and wider circular pitch white eyes to give them more of a blinded monstrous rage look

You kidding me? I think the 2016 one looks fantastic. Those renders you shared are a good representation of the classic one but they're pretty goofy.

I much prefer the existing 2016 Baron design to anything even remotely resembling the classic look. It'd only look grossly out-of-place.

I quite liked the 2016 design, much the same as most of the new designs -- which is to say, I like them, but don't love them. They fit the general theme and aesthetic of the game, though. I just enjoy the "re-envisioning" of the classic monsters, whether it's Doom 3 or 2016. I think the only one from 2016 that I wasn't particularly fond of was the Revenant, and its jetpack "hopping" movement and slow gait didn't help the cause.

IMO the baron is the best looking redesign in 2016. When I saw it in-game my reaction was "Yesss! Perfect! It looks just the way it should look in 2016!". Can't say the same about the rest though, most of them are okay - but just "okay", and that's it. Although I do think that Doom-3 style HK fits in quite well, and it's finally its own thing rather than a weaker recolour.

I thought it was okay.  It would of been better if they properly gave it green blood.

2016's Baron looks cool and fits the semi-cartoony aestethics of the game. A model that looks like a remastered version of the original Baron of Hell but less cartoony and more serious would look out of place, it will clash with the look and feel of the game.

Every time I hear about how the original Baron of Hell is serious, I think of this:
