Responding to GmanLives' Unity Doom video (Removed)

Recommended Posts

If anything unlike ICARUSLIV3S where he made some tactless jokes towards the developer of The Citadel in his own review of that game (and I don't think he ever apologized to other than saying "don't go harassing developers" to save face), it seems like Gmanlives is trying to learn from his mi...

It's always fun when someone speaks with authority about Vanilla and instead are talking about GZDoom because they know no other version.

 

Reminds me when someone on the Doomyard Facebook page tried to convince me PSX Doom had Nightmare then linked me a video of GZDoom, to which I responded with pictures of the actual disc.

 

I own the Unity ports, they are basically Vanilla + and play exactly like every other vanilla port with fixes and life improvements, I've played enough with controller and MnK (which you can do on console if you know how) on both platforms to confidently say it's Vanilla Doom.

Hey listen, I've seen a few of his videos and there are often errors in his reviews etc. But it's just a game so it's not like people will vote badly or invest badly or do other bad choices in life due to his videos. So I really haven't cared about it, just stopped watching. 

 

So it's funny to see how he reacts when someone actually speaks his mind. I'm not surprised that it was Doom that would start this movement, cause that's a tried and tested game that many people know everything about. 

 

And since he does these videos for money, rather than passion of the game, it serves him right to remove the video. 

 

The community that creates maps and mods and ports doesn't make shit from it other than love and respect, so I don't like that he or anyone with just a basic knowledge of the game should be able to make money without even doing research or even knowing the difference between gz and vanilla.

I don't think I'd have a problem with Gman being wrong if he wasn't such an arrogant ass about it. His attitude is obnoxious, shaming people who play on lower difficulties, use accessibility options, or can't afford a gaming pc. He acts like he knows everything, and consistently gets into arguments with people who disagree with him to the point of damn near bullying them.

 

That's the issue when you have a very edgy fan base.. They will push you into becoming the ULTIMATE EDGE LORD!!!

"Hey are you playing DOOM with a CONTROLLLEEEER!! YOU ARE DEAD TO ME!!"

 

Oh STFU I'm not going to play Doom with a gamepad i will play it with a touchscreen or maybe try to play it somehow on a pregnancy test

That was the big revelation for me regarding Gman's lack of credibility as a critic.

We have all been horrible guys. He is clearly upset.

I'm gonna start a Go Fund Me for some much needed butt hurt cream - unity port edition.

GZDoom is a mediocre port anyways I don't get why he uses it for comparison anyways.

GZDoom is the best port for modding, no discussion there, and also really good for convenience, both being reasons why people use it so much. Sure, there's better ones for vanilla play, but most people don't really care about the small differences while playing Doom.

Saying that a vanilla port should support GZDoom mods is bad though.

TBH I don't even think GZDoom is very "convenient". There's so many terrible default settings and going through the sheer number of options to get your desired configuration is a nightmare. I'm almost never sure if I adjusted everything I wanted.

 

Being able to tweak things is nice, but I think this source port is the quintessential example of "too much of a good thing".

Same here, Civvie's review is what got me to watch the rest of his videos too.

 

I think people are really overthinking this whole debacle and turning it into a drama where there is nothing drama worthy in the slightest. Yes, the main reason why people have made response videos like DK did right here was to debunk the misinformation that ran rampant in his video, not "just a few little things". That isn't dogpiling or shitting on someone, unless you have some real and very serious issues that make you somehow perceive constructive criticism as toxicity and harassment.

 

People debunking someone else's misinformation is absolutely necessary, especially in this day and age, because this is exactly how fake news, propaganda, lies, idiocy, hate, and misinformation spreads, no-one takes their time to debunk it and people start eating the shit, then cut each other's throat for it. Not, cool.

 

It looks like GMan is also irresponsible and does not want to assume anything at all. No, what he said in his video was a mixture of lame stabs at some people, factually incorrect information regarding the Unity port, and making invalid comparisons with GZDoom when the port was always meant to be vanilla but enhanced, and not remade in Unity from the ground up. This is not a matter of "semantics" like "PrBoom" vs "prboom", or "RUDE" vs "rude" at all, and him playing the victim card over imaginary "belittlement" only makes matters even worse. He's basically digging himself into a hole, willingly but unconsciously, then wonders why all this led where it did. No shit.

Except the ones that either are powered by ZScript or make extensive use of DECORATE functions that Zandronum doesn't even support.

I watched your video this morning and it was all corrections and constructive criticism. Kinda sus if he took it down over your video. Hopefully he is fixing his mistakes. Mistakes are a part of life that shouldn't be hidden but learned from.
