    For some reason, I just love to chainsaw cacodemons when they are close.

    I too enjoy that. Revenants as well.

    never use bfg i prefer the plasma rifle


    I know it's weaker, but it's more satisfying to use for me

    Oh yeah.

    In a first run of a "new" map, I just stroll through the map, haphazardly shooting/killing stuff. At nearly 50% of enemy kills, a stupid move finally gets me killed. In the second run, being aware of all coming threats, i use a more defensive strategy and I get killed after two minutes or so (not nearly 2% of the map or so).

    LMAO yes this

    I sometimes physically lean to try to avoid a fireball.  Never seems to work!

    Suppose doomguy is on the uppermost step and downstairs are monsters slightly outside of my FOV, so my brain tells me to lean my head up and look down squinting as if that's going to help. Of course it doesn't

    I used to be terrible doing this when I was young, playing nearly any type of game and I was into it (yes, I was that asshole who would swing my hands holding the controller left and right while playing racing games).  I still kinda do these things to this day.


    There's also the one where after a big plasma-spam slaughter and you end up with like four cells left, you just expend them into a wall for no reason.  

    I like it when I save the game when I'm on less than 10% health, because I think I'm a badass, and not realize that there's a chaingunner right behind me.  

    I sometimes fire a rocket point-blank at the exit switch as I press it.

    I do the 'jiggle dance' while waiting or riding on a slow-moving platform. 

    These days, I immediately type IDBEHOLDL when I encounter a room with fuckin strobe lighting. 

    I always check destination teleporters to make sure that they take me back to original one (or if it takes me somewhere else).

    Ever do the thing where you screw up in a fight and then just stand there and say "ok kill me, hurry up, kill me" instead of reloading a save?

  2. Realized this a few months ago, but it bears repeating.... because it is so damn obvious....

    All the startup demos in Doom were played with keyboard + mouse.  

    There was a topic here that Doom was ALWAYS meant to be played with keyboard and mouse (as opposed to keyboard only), and the guy pointed the demos out as proof of this.  When I read that, I immediately realized, I didn't even need to look them up, I have them burned in my memory, and holy shit I never consciously acknowledged that.  

    BTW, I still play keyboard-only, because I always have.  Keyboard + mouse feels more like a Quake thing to me

    Theres a bug that renders all enemies on the map as ghosts which has happened to me at least twice over the years. I can't remember exactly what caused it, I edited the maps and suddenly collision was fucked, but it was a simple fix iirc.

    Only ever happened to me one time in all my years of playing, in a big arena with multiple cyberdemons and spider masterminds. It was glorious - dodging rockets in the void and so forth. I saved it, but reloading the game didn't preserve this phenomenon- the cybers were now stuck out in the void :-)

    I'd love to see a Doom 2 Hell on Earth Movie. Even if it was first person (like Hardcore Henry). But something just pure action from the beginning and ending with some brutality trying to kill the Icon of Sin

    Yeeeaaaahhh man that would be awesome

  5. If I were to make a Doom movie, I'd make the Arch-vile the creature that can turn humans into 'zombies'. Like it can hypnotize you into turning on your fellow soldiers, you could come up with some cool situations with that.

    And I'd make it look all freaky with long fingers and huge teeth and it can like hang from the ceiling and stuff. The monster that does the spider mastermind's dirty work and can control all the other monsters.  

    Shit, I could make an awesome Doom movie. Somebody give me 150 million dollars

  6. I always thought rocket launcher zombies and plasma gun zombies would've been an awesome addition to Doom and a great expansion to its' techbase side.  Like the plasma zombies just shoot single shots, like at the same rate as the trooper/shotgunner, but of course if there's a group of them it would turn into chaos - and then rocket launcher zombies.... just imagine the carnage.

    And I always thought the arch-vile should've had a melee attack.

    Void in the place where you can find lost lost souls. Like when you check statistics and there is 58 monsters in the map but you killed only 57, so you look EVERYWHERE in the map and you still can't find the last one monster, so you use IDDT cheat and you realize there is a lost soul outside of the map... probably got there when Pain Elemental exploded too close to the wall.


    Poor lost sould in the void.

    And you ever try noclipping out to kill it?  And then it charges you, flies through you, then you turn around and run after it in the void? 

    Now THAT'S some trippy shit.

    Oh, and of course it can't hurt the Icon of Sin :]

    I always though it would be cool if the Icon Of Sin, and any of the fleshwall textures, would produce squirts of blood when you shot at them (instead of a bullet puff).  Would've really driven home the implication that you're in some sort of organic structure

  9. I remember first encountering ghosts in Monster Condo (I think like a specter and a shotgunner). Had no idea how it happened, thought it had something to do with the fact that I was noclipping around the map myself on God mode (I never legit played through Doom II until way later).  I remember yelling out at my brother "HOLY SHIT CHECK THIS OUT THE BADGUYS ARE NOCLIPPING QUICK COME LOOK" or something to that effect. 

    Easily the most unnerving thing in Doom, as even the ancient tactic of "hide behind the wall and you'll be safe" is now unreliable, and if you don't have a rocket launcher, you're basically screwed for the level.  It's amazing how this particular quirk wasn't noticed by the creators.
