    Remember when Doom was SIMPLE?

    Good points! I never thought about it that way. It practically makes this thread obsolete. I suppose I'm so used to FPS games that I forgot about how much there is in them. I don't know if the easiest difficulty of DE is indeed easy, but all the videos I've seen so far of the gameplay have a dozen demons coming to you at one time, constantly, relentlessly. I'm assuming that the players are on the hardest difficulties?

    Maybe you're right, it IS over a month before the game even comes out, so I think I'll stop bumping this, unless someone asks me a specific question or more.

    If you don't like my "whining" about this, then get a moderator to close this thread. Then we can all live in peace.

    Remember when Doom was SIMPLE?

    "Have you ever seen Final Fantasy 5's job system, or the list of "mixes" the chemist job in the same game can do? And you wanna tell us that being aware of one's surroundings while knowing what to point your god damn gun at is "complicated"?" I never bothered with RPGs like Final Fantasy, I find them complicated, too. As for the aiming, you know there's a lot more to it than that, the video says so. The way I see it, to beat the demons you have to have the right weapon and the right type of ammo for every demon encounter. It sounds very much to me like a pattern-matching game like Simon Says. Sod that shit. "Don't buy it then. You already said you'd rather watch a let's play. So watch that god damn let's play and stop whining already." No-one's forcing you to reply to my threads. Do you feel you have to respond to every notification? "What's the world coming to, if suddenly some thinking is required to finish a game? We can't possibly have that." The prior Doom games didn't need "some thinking" to play, that was part of their appeal. It seems to me that Doom is morphing into something else, so why call it Doom anymore?? "This attitude is the reason games have gradually started treating players like idiots over time. You don't get Chess? You should probably stick to Call of Duty then." I don't play Call of Duty, I think it's dull and repetitive. And I have tried it, the original Modern Warfare, and got bored of it very quickly.

    Now see, this is what I'm talking about! A whole guide to how to play Doom Eternal, taking up over half an hour, and it's the most complicated-sounding game I've ever heard of, not to mention the intense combat I'm not sure I'd be able to handle. It's been described as Chess, and guess what? I've never completed a game of Chess in my life, I always got baffled by the whole Check thing. I mean, I didn't mind Doom 2016 being slightly more complicated, but this is ridiculously over-the-top! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwnJvK2zGjE

    OK, sure, I'll go ahead and spend £160 or so on a graphics card for a game that I'm not sure I'll even like, because there's absolutely no other fucking way in hell I can even try it out otherwise. And if I don't like it? I'm in debt, saddled with a £50 game I don't want, especially since I am simply not interested in any other game out there. If I do like it? Fine. See my drift, now?

    I'm on the fence about it, so I'm not strictly a hater. However, I've heard that GeForce Now, the paid service, is a 12-month minimum subscription, and that's a no-no for me.

    I'm on the fence. If I could play it with GeForce Now, reliably, I'd be satisfied. At least I could try it first.

    Well, it seems that everyone, absolutely EVERYONE here is champing at the bit for Doom Eternal, no naysayers at all. Prove me wrong.

    Because the Prequels tried something new and different, as Doom 3 did. Doom 2016 and the Sequels bathed in nostalgia but went a convoluted way about doing it, which turned some people off but still others couldn't get enough. Could Eternal be the Rise of Skywalker of Doom? A complicated mess that many didn't like? We'll see.

    Doom 2016 and GeForce Now

    So it's true? That Stadia and GeForce Now are a response to the massively inflated GPU prices (thank you bitcoin mining!) and tighter wallets that PC gamers have these days? I haven't tried either service yet, but if Doom 2016 can run that smooth on an ageing laptop like yours, then my new PC sans GPU and with only integrated graphics should run like a breeze, as others have told me.
  12. I did play Doom 2016 back in the day, and I loved the gorgeous detail and the eye candy in id Tech 6 (I've always loved graphics engines in games) although I found the gameplay to be a bit too frenetic for my liking, and I hated facing off against the bosses, especially the Spider Mastermind at the end. I only managed to complete it once, and all of this was on the EASIEST difficulty, mind. I guess I'm not much of a hardcore gamer. But when YouTube quality is so high these days and videos like this are available to watch the gorgeous visuals and to revel in the carnage without doing any work, then why not just watch the game instead? I might go down this route for Doom Eternal!

    So Megatextures are NO MORE in id Tech 7

    Good point, I forgot about Rage. I played it back in the day, but didn't like the RPG elements or the endless racing (among other things) and had to force myself to complete it, and I never touched it again. I don't give a toss about Rage 2 as a result.

    Maybe they meant it was technically outstanding, but slightly lacking as a "true" Doom experience. My quote had the word "both", from the video. That's what I'm thinking, anyway.
