Doom 3 TV commercial?

Recommended Posts

Ten seconds of a nearly solid black background, no music, a few scary questions in a gothic font with white text, then teeth.

Does id even do commercials?

If they did, I think they'd probably make a cutscene out of the game. It would look real enough. What they'd use? Dunno, but I'm sure they wouldn't show many of the later elements.

If it's as story-driven as they make it sound, they might even try to leave you with a mini-cliffhanger that would (supposedly) make you want to buy the game and win it just to find out what happens at the end.

I say be more creative, put john carmack sitting in a chair, a book on his lap, and a fire burning in a chimny in the background. Maybe even give him a wooden pipe to suck on. Then he would proceed to talk to his grand-children about his younger days of making games about slaughtering demons. =]

my idea:

(3-5 months before the game is released)

all black, weird creepy music and sounds. The doom 3 logo fades out of the blackness for about 5 seconds, then fades back again. Should be seen in movie trailers.

I thought the SNES version was kinda nice. I think it should be alittle like the "MOVIE TRAILER" for the 1st "ALIEN" the Ridley Scott version. YO!! Hold up a sec!! That's how I'd want the "DOOM MOVIE" trailer to be like. Anybody that owns the DVD version of "ALIEN" would
see where I'm coming from......

I would like to see this:
- Black screen, Rob Zombie creepy music.
- Doom logo, in the darkness. Lights up with the new lighting technology.
- Light effects showing the faces of some characters, and heavy drumming.
- Darkness again. Heavy breathing from the Doom guy.
- The sound of a shotgun blast, and blood dripping.
- Then comming from behind something like a release date.

Scene one : fade in to a Mars base at night. It's raining and all is quiet. Then, a lightning flash that leaves a strange anomaly in the clouds : the towering silhouette of a Cyberdemon, glowing white hot against ink black - with eyes like stars.

Then, the scene goes black again quickly. The following in a series of alternating black screens with voice-overs and very short, intense flashes of in-game footage. Of course, you'd need a cool-sounding, heavy voice to do the voice-over, not the cheesy voices most film trailers use these days.

Voice : "December 10th"
Flash : A marine's hand grabbing a shotgun from a cabinet.

Voice : "Prepare."
Flash : The marine's chest and arms, cocking his shotgun.

Voice : "To meet."
Flash : The marine, from the back, hunched up pointing his shotgun at a doorway.

Voice : "Your."
Flash : Extreme close up of the marine's face, dripping with sweat, bearing his teeth in mad tension.

Voice : "DOOM."
Flash : A very quick flash of a shadow jumping the marine, screaming, the sound of a shotgun blast VERY loud, then fade to black real quick.

As the image stays dark for a second or so, we hear a shotgun shell hitting the floor. And that's it. I don't know if you can picture it like I do, but I like the idea of something short and intense that isn't necessarily going to attract a lot of customers, but will hype up the game some more to those who know what Doom is.

Uhh, does it rain on Mars? I know there can be storms on Mars, but rain?

Ralphis does the macarena for like 20 seconds then you see the doom3 logo before the commercial ends.

(flathead's commercial idea)


Heh, that sounds great, but maybe instead of a voice, how about the words coming up on the screen, in red, bloody letters in between the fades of the marine? I think that your commercial created a great feeling of suspense, and putting words in would ruin that, IMO.

Frankly, I don't care. They never show computer game commercials where I live, so if id cooked up a really awesome Doom 3 commercial, I wouldn't have the priveledge of watchin' it anyway.

i see no point of PC-DOOM commercial.most pc-gamers just looked at homepage or read the pc-magazine.
if there will be DOOM commercial,non-gamer will criticize about the violence of this game.
