    DOOM is getting ripped and torn by negative Steam reviews

    Yeah, I'm sure there's plenty of bias just because it was C.A. TBH I don't hate the MP, but I agree with the opinion that it doesn't feel quite right.

    Creating the Doom 4 we wanted

    lol damn, my bad guys, I guess there aren't as many people interested in a modding project as I thought. Welp, I hope you all at least got a few laughs out of me ;) Thanks for the responses, I'm glad to know what you all think, keep it real guys!

    I hope you're right. BTW this doesn't involve chunks of engine code, but there's A LOT that they can carry over and tweak slightly.

    Not quite. This isn't about instant gratification, this is about making sure that Doom, the most influential game ever created, has a continuing legacy. Maybe the multiplayer is a huge fluke, maybe the singleplayer is still going to be the best thing since sliced bread, but if it's not, it's up to us to stand up and help the franchise. And seriously, this isn't Mt. Everest here, its just modifying existing code. This is the same concept as Brutal Doom.

    Creating the Doom 4 we wanted

    OK, so there's plenty of controversy about the new Doom. Without getting into arguments here about whether or not it's any good, too similar to COD etc., I wanted to create a thread where we could talk about what we can do from for those of us who are disappointed by the new release. It's safe to assume that Doom 4 as a whole is certainly going to have a great fit and finish. Those who are unhappy about the game, are more worried about some of the gameplay mechanics etc. Now to the point: let's start a discussion about modding the code to what we (the hardcore/enthusiasts/loyalists) were hoping for. The bulk of the code should provide a lot to work with. Our work would be focused on altering the core mechanics, gameplay speed, a little work on the weapons, and maybe some level design. Doom is a very important title, and if this game doesn't do well, there's a possibility that it's the last one we'll ever see! Look at what happened to Duke Nukem! Is anyone interested in being a part of a project like this? I run a startup, so I don't have anywhere near the time or coding skills to do this alone. Let's show Bethesda how Doom is supposed to be!

    He claims that it is absurd to relate this to COD/Halo. The multiplayer in this game was made by the same exact people who made -wait for it- COD and Halo. On top of that, engineers re-use code. A few small differences like going prone and the way it looks is not enough to make it functionally different.

    Oh of course, but this marketing campaign was launched before the beta. Even if they delay the release, this marketing campaign will not be a complete waste, just a huge tease. Everything is a numbers game, so here's what I suspect they're thinking: Revise game: Marketing: 50% waste (because of delaying) Development: 30% waste (because of re-coding) Launch game as-is: Up to 65% sales lost So it's anybody's guess. All I can say is I'm glad I'm not responsible for making the decisions they did, because quite a few people are having a really bad week over there :/

    Could be, but I doubt they would cancel the game all-together. The most financially beneficial option I can think of would be to re-do the MP, and revise the SP accordingly. No matter what, they already have a lot of code to work with, it would make sense to just make the changes people are asking for. If they pull the plug all together, they'll REALLY piss off the community. It would be a PR nightmare to be labelled as the company that killed Doom 1 month from release.

    Also I'm beginning to think that the reason they have not yet commented is because they are in a bit of shock over how negative the reviews were. There's no nice way for management to look at this, the fact of the matter is they just wasted millions of dollars. They're probably taking so long because they're deciding on whether or not to pivot and re-do the entire game. I don't have anything to substantiate this, it's just a hunch.

    Actually I just reviewed Steam, and the ratings on Doom were waaay worse than any other title they have ever released. The next-worst game is about 70%, roughly twice as positive as Doom. I'm sure they knew that it would be impossible to please everyone, but they certainly did not expect it to be nearly this bad, or they would not have spent so much money developing it. Therefore, it stands to reason that there is a good chance that they will seriously overhaul Doom. There is still hope!

    DOOM is getting ripped and torn by negative Steam reviews

    The specifics about WHY people don't like the game are noteworthy, but not the most important thing here. As of the writing of this post, the barrage of negative reviews have been out for 5 days, and yet Bethesda/ID still have not said A SINGLE WORD addressing this. This has left the fans in frustrating speculation as to why they made the game this way, and what they might do about it. Furthermore, a team working on a AAA title like this should have been aware that it's fans ARE NOT the same people playing Halo and COD, and often dislike both of those games. It was therefore a horrible move to hire the people that made those games to work on Doom. I can live with the fact that the game is different than the others, I appreciate progress and change, but I am frustrated at the team for not understanding their fans, and even more so for not addressing the fans.
