    What song does describe you?

    He's a groovy guy. Yeah. (I don't actually use a Walther or any gun though)

    What kind of campaign style are you hoping for?

    FPS level design is an art that Doom is keeping alive, so more of that, with less of the separation of arenas. More big action/adventure games than not these days are open world, one big ol' open map, big open fields etc. It would be boring if every game was like that. So for Doom I want the art of classic level design, some new tricks and ideas of course, but I want a masterful flow to it that is very different from a big open area. The setting is Earth with ruins and whatnot, but the master mappers will weave that into a tapestry of paths and fun to traverse unique levels while still making it feel open. I want some masterful mappery.

    Graphics card for Doom Eternal

    I bought a 970 for DOOM, my rig is from 2012 with an ol i5 etc. With a little energon, and a lot of luck, I will attempt to run Doom Eternal with this computer. I played Doom 3 with really really low specs and performance at the time as I recall, still enjoyed it though.

    What improvements over Doom 2016 are you expecting?

    More sprawling intricate levels where the big encounters aren't put into contained arenas strictly, etc. Just any cool dazzling fun to traverse interesting level design, and the gameplay flow therein. That's the only improvement I'd need.

    Doom Eternal is a game, that exists

    This is the greatest announcement in the past five hundred years. This game will be epic! And gameplay in a couple months at QuakeCon, they've been keeping busy these past two years.

    Serious Sam 3 vs Doom 4

    DOOM for me. I even enjoyed messing around in SnapMap, and also got some fun out of the multiplayer. But the main attraction, the campaign, best FPS in years for me. I do hope Serious Sam 4 is great though, I see screens of that have been released recently.

    Your Favorite Game of All Time

    I love a lot of the games mentioned so far, tough to pick a fav. Plus for me it always changes. I know in 2005 MGS3 was my favorite game ever, and in 2008 it was MGS4, and of course I'm a big Duke/Doom/Quake fan, also GTA3 and Vice City were big, loved adventure games like Space Quest 4 & 5 and Quest for Glory series. So many good ones to choose from. Silent Hill 2, Resident Evil 2 and 4, and others in those fine series, so many. Mario 64, Ocarina of Time, recently loved Breath of the Wild and Yakuza 0. Not to forget JRPGs like FF7, Dragon Quest 8, Tales of Symphonia, and mods like Action Half-Life... I'll say, naturally this forum may lean a bit nostalgic, but in general this is a nostalgic question for me. And picking favs is tough, since there are so many different aspects of games to enjoy. I haven't even mentioned fighting games yet, so many good times on the Dreamcast with my friends and brother. King of Fighters and Street Fighter especially. Short answer, in 2018, I don't have a favorite it's a concept that is too wild for me at this juncture!

    What is your favorite Heavy Metal Band?

    Motorhead (unless we count them as rock'n'roll as Lemmy liked to), in which case Judas Priest! Honorable mention to Overkill, my fav of the thrash bands of which I like most of them.

    (Guitar and drums building up)

    Richard Cheese's funny lounge version is my fav Down with the Sickness, but this is good too!

    Opinions on Modern First Person Shooters

    I agree that modern shooters are harder if you want to run and gun. Since they're usually copying the to me boring CoD mold, where you're supposed to use cover and pretend its war etc, so you get the "red screen of death" if you run into the open. Which is boring, since it just means you have to play the way they want. That said, it's probably possible to run and gun those games if you're a CoD pro or something, but they are often designed to keep you in cover. Even Titanfall 2, one of the more praised recent single player FPS campaigns, has a lot of CoD style stuff like that. They have really dumb slow AI, but if you're in the open in front of several of them you're just going to get hit, as far as I can tell. In general I like games that are somewhat open in how you can approach battles, more options the better, so these on rails type of games that pick one specific intended way are boring. That said, I take each game on it's own merits if they're at all of interest to me. I really love some games in the recent style, like Bioshock Infinite. But for sure I want more of the classic intricate more interesting style of FPS level design, and combat. Though combat I'd also like to see go somewhere new, with more interesting varied enemy behavior etc. So that volume of monsters or healthsponge aren't the only options.
  11. Just got this, lookin' good! We need more 90s inspired level design in our lives. (well we have more than most on this forum, but still!)

    Retro FPS Polling Station

    I always bet on Duke, but we're all entitled to our taste in video gamery. Duke is both homage and parody I'd say, to me it is funny and charming. And I don't think a womanizing perv type of character in fiction is inherently toxic either, certainly no more so than say a fictional hitman etc. But discussing what is or isn't good to have in any medium of fiction is an even more wide ranging topic.

    How do you view video games?

    Lot of good stuff to talk about, and I like the SNK, Mega Man, and point and click adventure gifs by the way! On the post saying video games are your life, that reminds me of when one of my best friends said movies are his life, years back. We both used to rent countless movies on the discount Tuesdays back in the day, catching up on all the classics and new cult classics etc. Any hobby or interest in art can seem like it's a huge part of your life, or even "your life" if you're still soul searching etc, I can see that. And being a gamer is for sure a big part of the identity of me and my friends, or at least something we'll always bring up and wear on our sleeve so to speak. I'll say, on if it's entertainment, what role it plays etc, I do think for some it's almost like a job. And to me a lot of the games do give you busywork, which I think games could cut back on. Like a treadmill where you feel you're getting somewhere, this can be fun and whether or not it's well done is subjective, but sometimes I do think games could get where they're going while using a bit less of my time. An example, that new Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Really great game, but it being so huge and realistic-ish in scale, taking so much time to travel and explore many hills and mountains. I'd actually like it if everything was closer together and the world was say 70% of that scale, a bit more like it was on N64. But this is a side-ramble, I think a big part of game design especially lately is on keeping the player engaged in feeling like they're getting things, unlocking things, leveling things, grinding etc, like it's a career. And I have I guess some criticism towards that, especially stuff like MMOs, to me a lot of stuff in games feels like busywork. But everybody is engaged by and enjoys different stuff. So, games are art, a diversion, entertainment, I really admire a lot of games, love Hideo's Metal Gear Solid games as mentioned above, and Max Payne also mentioned, those really connect with me. And of course stuff like those great SNK arcade games also connect with me and stick with me, ditto for Street Fighter, not just story and immersion, great timeless gameplay is also art. Anyways, it's fun to talk about, and agreed maybe we spend a bit more time obsessing (or for example, arguing with people on the internet -speaking from past experience), but we're all here for a reason. Games are important to us.
  14. Turbonegro - Apocalypse Dudes. This is the one by far, but I'll pick four more since I have the luxury! My favorite album, incredible incredible stuff. Motörhead - No Remorse. Picking just one album of Motorhead's is an impossible task. This is a compilation from the 80s with four original songs as well, including the great Killed By Death. Electric Six - Señor Smoke. Tough to pick one album, and their debut Fire has a lot of their classics like Gay Bar and Danger High Voltage. But this second album for me really sums up their sound over the years, really hits the spot for me. Includes a Queen cover too, which is nice to have. Chromeo - White Women. Sometimes you gotta get smooth and funky, so hanging out with these two Canadian Casanovas would make that island a paradise. If this was a deserted on an island kind of thing. Kavinsky - OutRun. I would need something awesome that is instrumental (less vocals) on the island as well, less distracting and whatnot in some ways, and it's just a great album. I'm just choosing to live the rest of my life on an island, to make other music albums less tempting.

    Rise and fall of 3dfx (article)

    Voodoo3 was my first video card, good times. Got my first good gaming PC in 1999, could only play point and click adventure games and Doom before that pretty much. My second card was a 3D Blaster Annihilator Geforce. On Quake and whatnot, Quake 2 I found was fun with 3D acceleration. I love the pixels look for Doom, Duke 3D etc, but for those 3D games around that time the textures (especially on enemy models) all looked fine blurred, seemed to fit for me.
