    Balance between Graphics and Gameplay

    Jaguar Doom still kept the graphics part fine; ID was good enough not to degrade the graphics too much and made the gameplay less difficult. I would always call PSX Doom the best version of Doom. JagDoom is rather inferior as compared to PSX Doom.

    Balance between Graphics and Gameplay

    Quake 1 could have as well used less brown and more grey look using that same 256 colors. Hell, I could have as well called HeXen to be better than Doom 1 and Quake 1 in terms of palette. Raven was smart enough to make proper use of brown and grey colors (although I still feel like Hexen is slightly unbalanced between graphics and gameplay). Raven got the gothic design of the maps right, it is why the maps in HeXen does not look like shit on Quake 1/ Doom 2's level.

    Balance between Graphics and Gameplay

    I tended to like Unreal 1 better. I liked the castle designs. The maps never felt like it was ugly. Quake 1, on the other hand, feels like it doesn't really have that much work put onto graphics. Only the models looked good; the maps didn't look that well. Quake 1 had the worst color palette I have ever seen in a video game. The gameplay was good but the graphics wasn't on par with it. It is filled with brown, the only exceptions probably are the boss fight arenas in the first 2 episodes (If I remember correctly). I could have as well said the same thing about Doom 2. It's basically "more gameplay but less graphics" which means it has worse balance between gameplay and graphics as compared to Doom 1. It got browny starting with The Pit, the earth maps got filled with browns.

    Balance between Graphics and Gameplay

    Maybe it would be the best for it's time, but for people like me who does not really like browny-as-fuck gothic graphics, I wouldn't call it that good. Unreal 1 and Half Life 1 got both the graphics and gameplay part right; the former had more satisfying castle settings that I liked more as compared to Quake 1.

    How does "Latter" make sense here? What's the "Latter" thing here?

    Balance between Graphics and Gameplay

    Dude, why would I ever judge D2 by 2018 standards? LOL. I am judging D2 by D1's standards. I actually liked D1 more than D2. D2's maps by themselves weren't all too good. D1's maps were. I was talking about Q1. Judging by what Q1's graphics from Doom 1s standards, I wouldn't really call it all that good. Its actually the other way around, LOL. For people who doesn't understand what I meant, I didn't mean "get rid of the graphics" lol. I meant "more graphics, less gameplay" or "more gameplay, less graphics".

    Balance between Graphics and Gameplay

    I meant that if the game has really good graphics but comparably shit gameplay, then that game is out of my taste. Same thing goes on the other way. On the former, the games would be Call Of Duty, Quake, Metro 2033, Doom 3 (Yes, it includes BFG Edition too), GTA 5 or shit like that in general that throws out the gameplay for graphics. The latter part would be Quake 1, Doom 2, Hexen or shit like that in general that would throw out the graphics for gameplay. Speaking of GTA 5, I feel like it's meh in terms of gameplay as compared to GTA:SA. Half Life 1 looks so much better as compared to Quake 1 and plays nice.
  12. This is something that I have been thinking for a while now. How important the balance between graphics and gameplay is in your opinion? Personally, I feel like both graphics and gameplay should be good and I am not for imbalance between Graphics and Gameplay. It is why I tend to have a distaste for the likes of Quake 1 and Doom 2 (considering that the latter had a imbalance between graphics and gameplay, Doom 1's an exception here). I don't really mind if both the graphics and gameplay is balanced. Edit: This thread looks rather confusing, so I will explain: Quake 1: It had rather good gameplay, but the graphics wasn't really on par with the gameplay, something Doom 1 had. Doom 2: Same as above. Had better gameplay but the maps by themselves looked like ass as compared to Doom 1. I could probably go on and on about games that doesn't really have that much balance between graphics and gameplay.
  13. I personally can't really think of what acronym it could stand for, but feel free to discuss.
  14. Any chance for this release to be posted at ZDoom Forums?
