  1. R. Lee Ermey Has Died At Age 74

    I always admired his performance in Full Metal Jacket. Nothing comes close to it. May he Rest in Peace.
  2. Half-Life

    I think the half-life games are generally good. though they do kinda start a bit slowly. I wouldn't call the franchise a favorite of mine, but I can see why people like it.
  3. (Changed Topic) Should More Doom Engine Games Come To Console?

    While I do love Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Timesplitters, and Metroid Prime (if you count that), PC is my preferred platform for the FPS genre by far. I personally find the keyboard and mouse a much more comfortable and precise control scheme. Unless the console exclusive FPS happens to be exceptionally good, I'm most likely going to skip out on buying it entirely.
  4. What is your favourite secret Level?

    You are correct. I mistyped.
  5. What is your favourite secret Level?

    TNT map31: Pharaoh. Love its music and atmosphere.
  6. Jim Flynn

    Aw damn! I always thought of him as among the most creative mappers of the 90's. Sad to see him go.
  7. Why do people care about FPS past 120?

    tfw Doom 2 runs at 6000+ fps for me in GLBoom-plus.
  8. BTSX E2M25: Unstable Journey
  9. Opinions on Modern First Person Shooters

    I personally don't consider Doom and Quake's design as "The Gold Standard" for the FPS genre as a whole. If the game is clearly going for a different playstyle altogether, I'd rather judge it on its own merits, rather than needlessly comparing apples to oranges. Most of the things listed, while they aren't always done perfectly, I believe have a place in FPSs. Only thing I'd say is truly terrible is hand-holding, but that isn't exclusively a "modern FPS" thing.
  10. Retro FPS Polling Station

    5-30 mins for level playtime. I like an equal variety of shorter and longer levels. Anything much more than 30 mins works better as a once in a blue moon thing. I also think level ones should not be much longer than 5 minutes. Episode structure is king, but I honestly dont mind Doom 2 style either. Hubs I personally think work better in games like System Shock and Metroid Prime. Protagonist: Don't really mind either way. I'd even be on board with full character customization.
  11. After the iwads, I'd say the Memento Moris for a taste of 90's mapping, the Scythes for 00's, and BTSX for 10's. I'd also recommend them playing Batman Doom, Urban Brawl, and Adventures of Square.
  12. 2D Sonic the Hedgehog games are generally like this for me.
