    Has This Game Become A Joke?

    The Doom franchise has never taken itself too seriously anyway, as mentioned before. Doom 1 had the whole thing about you avenging your pet rabbit Daisy. Doom 2 had you shoot hanging Commander Keens. Doom 3 had Super Turbo Turkey Puncher 3. The silliness is "different" because the other games are like twenty years older.
  2. Got to see Tim Commerford open for Prophets of Rage in 2016 fronting this lovely band. Thankfully, it's the "so bad it's hilarious" kind of bad. (The Prophets of Rage show was OK, but it was before the album came out so it was basically Chuck D and B Real doing RATM karaoke. The album was trash lol.)

    Opinions on Social Media.

    Never had Facebook or Twitter. I had Snapchat and Instagram for a few years but got rid of those too. I never even interacted with anyone on those apps so that basically made them useless to me, and the less Z U C C on my phone the better.

    Questioning the stigma towards DOSBox

    I assume this is a reaction to the posts in that thread about the "purist way to play Doom"? Anyway I don't think anyone dislikes it, and certainly no one sees it as a "retro game antagonist," especially since for many less popular DOS era games it's pretty much your only choice. It's just that it can be a pain in the ass sometimes, especially compared to a modern source port, and given that lots of popular modern source ports have vanilla compatibility anyway there's not usually a point to using it for Doom besides the aesthetic.

    What is the best/famous unofficial commercially released wad?

    Does Action Doom 2: Urban Brawl count? It was sold on CD for a year or two I believe.

    How old are you ?

    20 as of last month. Started playing Doom in middle school, modding ZDoom and Skulltag with DECORATE/ACS got me into code, now I'm studying computer science in college.
  7. It was better before Eternal came out because people wouldn't spam Doomworld with the same fucking "normies bad, new Doom bad" threads every fucking day. And from month old accounts no less! I don't give a shit what they're doing on Reddit because I'm not there, but I am here, so can we please cut it out with these obnoxious posts for like one day? Pretty please? With a cherry on top???

    Sgt_Mark is making his own game, "Brutal Fate".

    I see. I wasn't aware of that before, my bad for jumping to conclusions. Thanks for responding.

    Subjective vision of new generations

    Your case is helped by the fact that this flood of "new thing bad, old thing good" and "grr Bethesda sux long live classic Doom" posts as of late, such as this one, is coming from accounts that are a few weeks or months old, and not old accounts belonging to long-time Doom players like you might expect from posts of this nature. Feels less like grumpy old guys and more like those "wrong generation" 13-16 year olds you find on Youtube comments or whatever.

    Subjective vision of new generations

    You're missing the point. I'm saying that in the 80's, 90's and 00's decades there were always older people being just as hostile to the things you enjoy as you are to the things that younger generations enjoy. How can you miss the irony of ranting about the loss of "decency in culture" on a Doom forum, when in its time Doom was probably one of the biggest targets for the exact same kinds of rants about "culture in decline"?

    Subjective vision of new generations

    One generation's "fornite and roblox" is another generation's Doom. One generation's "untalented neo-electronic music made by kids in fl studio" is another generation's "untalented punk rock music made by kids in a garage". And for everyone in 2020 being nostalgic for pre-2012 internet culture I guarantee you there was a person in 2012 being nostalgic for late 90's internet culture. There has literally never been a generation that hasn't done this. Gen Z will rant about how the rappers 30 years from now are shit compared to Kendrick Lamar and Tyler, the Creator. Also I gotta say, this is definitely the first time I've seen Black Eyed Peas(???) hailed as an example of the superior culture of the olden days. Strange times we live in.

    Question About The Purist Way To Play DOOM

    As others have said Chocolate Doom is basically the DOS experience without the DOS hassle. It's as purist as it gets for a source port if that's what you want. If you're a first time Doom player and not a DOS enthusiast it's not really worth trying to set up DOSBOX. That said, I'd like to point out that there's a decent amount of ports that can accurately emulate vanilla gameplay while offering some QoL enhancements like higher resolutions and more flexible key binding, like Crispy Doom, PrBoom+, and Eternity Engine. All of these ports are capable of creating demos that can be played back in the vanilla DOOM/DOOM2.EXE in DOS, so the game behavior can be considered identical to vanilla. But if you're dead set on a purist experience and don't care about reading long lists of source ports then Chocolate Doom is still the way to go.

    GZFreeDoom - solo - needs Help!

    A very old one. Look at the HUD, pistol, and medikit. And that MAP01 (the base for their GZDoom version) hasn't been in the game in years. @CBM are you still playing with Freedoom 0.7 or something?

    Does r/Doom make you cringe as much as it makes me?

    Bruh it's a video game it's not that serious. Like what now, can we not be Wolfenstein fans unless we played the 1981 original Castle Wolfenstein for the Apple II? Can you only get a Tony Montana tattoo if you also watched the 1930's original Scarface film? Also video games aren't bands. The better comparison would be getting an id Software tattoo or something, which I assure you people who only played the new games are not doing, and probably not the classic Doom fanbase either. The new Doom games are reboots. Reboots are made to be accessible to a new audience. You don't need to have played the originals to have enjoyed the new games.

    Does r/Doom make you cringe as much as it makes me?

    Well hey, that's not fair IMO. Doom '16 and Eternal are new games. The originals are over 2 decades old now. This just seems like gatekeeping to me.
