Can they do it?

Recommended Posts

Can they uphold the DooM legacy? iD software doesn't even have Romero on it anymore. Half the original team is gone - they're out in the field but with other companies. Don't get me wrong - I'm the uber-DooM fan here. I played that stuff till my eyes bled practically (who am I kidding - I still do)...but I'm worried that without the vision of the founding fathers, the new DooM may try too much to be innovative and new and try too little to hold to the simple "Get home from work and blow a LOT of shit up to take off some stress"-mentality that made the original so popular (among other things ofcourse). What do you guys think?

If you've read the Doom Bible you'd know that their original 'vision' of Doom was savagely raped from the get go. Many things simply could not be done as planned.

Q3A has me concerned too, but all we can do is talk. The technology is assured, the content is under question. Hopefully our doubts will be allayed.

If you check the DooM Bible, you´ll realize that DooM basically works NOT because of a complex design, but from the lack of it. This means that there´s a lot of space to work, new stuff to add, and many things to improve. No one´s betraying the original concept, but making a decent sequel. Besides, everyone at iD´s a tremendous fan of DooM, so if we are pretty damn sure that we could make a kick ass DooM, then so they should too.

If I were a betting man, I'd bet they'll pull it off. Wouldn't bet my life savings though. Doom3 has a good chance of being the best game ever, but it's not exactly a sure thing. That's part of what makes the wait so much fun.

I think Doom would've been even better if it was like in the doom bible.

no i'm happy how we got it now
the doom bible has a lot of crap in it like tresure and x-ray specs...ect

Well yeah it's good that SOME stuff didn't make it to the game, but most stuff there would've made even better game, I agree that Doom right now is good, but it could've been even better...
