Brutal Doom wins mod of the year on Mod DB

Well Brutal Doom, unless I'm misinterpreting things, was born just to be a more gory and modern version of the old and solid vanilla gameplay. That now is something so bloated and that it keeps going for the sake of it it's another matter, or maybe not... But it's not surprising that brutal doom is more popular than other mods that make their own things but they also have a more niche appeal.

Well, this sure is one way to admit to people you like to have very large opinions about things you know nothing about.

Please elaborate on my large opinions and on how this forum hasn't degenerated into whining central over the last twelve months.

What he said is actually incredibly self-degrading. You'd think working so much must result in something truly astounding, but all we have is Brutal Doom.

Yeah, Mark's just high off his own farts with some of the shit he's saying.

This entire thread: A better mod should have won MOTW.

12 years old (more than half of the Doom community since 2014) love Brutal Doom.

I mean, if you're going to change the subject to something completely irrelevant, then the burden of proof's on you.

Okay, I have exaggerated things a bit on these replies. Sorry. People were offending me first, I figured these posters were coming out from /vr/, and I have let myself go trigger-happy.

And even if it's true, responding like that is giving them exactly what they want, and just adds more fuel to the fire. If you want people to stop thinking you act like that, then don't act like that.

Okay, I wasn't expecting Brutal Doom to get the Mod of the Year award at all.

First, Brutal Doom 64 getting an award from IGN, now this.

Despite what it sounds like, I'm not hating on Brutal Doom at all. I play it sometimes (Though, I'm starting to lose interest in it), and I like it. I'm just glad that it got such an award.

Throw in the Hell on Earth Starter Pack and I would've agreed...on it's own, nope. (also seems daft that it's not only stuff from 2017)

To be fair, I think v21 of Brutal Doom was released in 2017 (I might be wrong though)

The campaign in that really should have gotten a Cacoward. Regardless of how one might feel about Brutal Doom, it was a spectacular megawad to play through. Definitely could have benefited from having a better name than 'Hell on Earth Starter Pack'.

In Mark's defense I'll say, to those reaching for straws when there was complaints about the title 'After the Holocaust', how come nobody got upset at Brossard for 'Hollywood Holocaust'? Just food for thought.

Brutal Doom has all of the components necessary to reach a much wider audience than the Doom community itself, so as much as it might unfairly overshadow other mods that are higher quality but less accessible, is it really reasonable to be upset about it winning mod of the year, especially when there are so many people who genuinely enjoy it?

 

And can we really expect an audience of primarily non-Doom fans to know about Mark's behavior?

It isn't "finished" so it hasn't even been eligible yet. Once Extermination Day is released as a basically-finished product (and not one of the endless betas or WIP builds) it will be considered.

BrutalDoom though has much potential

to keep ZDaemon servers empty!

ZDaemon servers aren't empty, and 90% of Zandronum servers don't even run Brutal Doom, and even those that do end up empty.

I see more megagame.wad servers than Brutal Doom servers on Zandronum. And ZDaemon is based on an older version of ZDoom, so of course it won't attract much of a modern audience as it doesn't support the features and mods that can be found in GZDoom and/or Zandronum.

Lets be honest guys, before Brutal Doom was conceived ( or started to burst with popularity ) no one was talking about how Doom mods should give Doom a slice of mainstream/media coverage again or how they should lure back people who were into Doom 10 or 15 years ago.
