Define a puzzle for me, please.

If I'm not too far off, Doom had plenty of puzzles - simple, ridiculously easy puzzles that required little brain power to figure out, but puzzles nonetheless.
Who says a puzzle has to be difficult and tricky to be a puzzle?

The best doom had was pulling switches and listening for the sound of something being activated by a trigger (I'm speaking of stock doom levels). That doesnt satisfy me when it comes to puzzles. Of course, the game wasnt really designed for anything very complex so I can understand. And obviously I still like the game anyway ;)

As far as doom 3 is concerned it cetainly has the potential for more complex problem solving. Whether or not it will be implemented remains to be seen. I doubt we'll see anything more than the same ol' switch pulling but I guess I'll just have to wait and see.

Doom 3 is going to have puzzles, riddles, and secrets that you'll have to solve and unlock.

The only real puzzle I saw in Doom was a lever where there were 3 switches and you had to pull them in a certain sequence...I wish I could remember which one though.... That and the whole shooting things with a shotgun to open doors and unlock secrets was kinda nifty. Shooting the icon of sin in a hallway and BAM door opens and you get a MAJOR health and armor powerup.
