    What's your greatest Doom accomplishment?

    Getting it to run in the first place on a 486DLC 40mhz with 4MB RAM back in 1994.

    Yeah if anyone seriously did say or imply that, or anything close to it, then they are weapons grade imbeciles.

    Yup. There we go. @Tea Monster where can Dave and I send the invoices for our consultancy fees for helping you set up your new business venture?

    Sexiest 3D representation of a horrid beast from the depths of Hell ever. Sell them, people can paint them up.
  5. You are completely overthinking this. Doom II set the standard - continuous play, not pistol start. Megawad complete. Anyone who disagrees is just being kind of a snob, or is deploying their elite sarcasm skills on you like @Gez.

    Doomguy's personality

    Uh... huh... Doomguy is you. Therefore, you just publicly confessed to being a furry and liking naruto (whatever that is, hey I don't judge).

    Do you consider videogames an artform?

    Bingo. What an individual person defines as art is really not important because you can't measure it. Again, the actual definition of art: "the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power." Clearly, Fifa and Candy Crush have emotional power, and are creative works. Massively cynical, sure, but still art. Plenty of art has cynical intent - modern pop music and movies and shows designed more to push an agenda than just tell a good story come to mind.

    Do you consider videogames an artform?

    This. Honestly i find people who think games are not art kind of pretentious. They are really saying "it's not art i like, therefore it's not art". I also don't understand how some people can call some games art but others not. I would agree that say the bioshock games have more of an artistic flair and style than cs:go. But the latter is still art.

    Doom Pictures Thread 2021

    Nice. Very Eternal Doom. Two words. Gee. Zus. And the caco award for most colour coordinated screen shot ever goes to...
  10. Have said this myself many times. Unless their technology far outstrips ours. I do agree though, the point of such a journey would be a bit of a mystery though shy of simple curiosity and observation, just as we are doing looking at the Moon, Mars etc. The skeptic in me has a hard time with UFOs. I definitely think most of them are misidentified natural phenomena. I have seen people say "OMG look UFO" while showing a video of a glowing orb that is flying back and forth so violently and randomly that one would have to think Joe and Jimmy Martian were getting into the SpaceWhiskey before jumping behind the controls. But when you get people like military personal and police saying they have seen what appears to be an actual craft, or sightings which seem to have been verified by multiple witnesses from multiple vantage points, then it becomes a lot harder to just dismiss them out of hand as the work of people not understanding what they are seeing, idiots making up nonsense, or lunatics. There's clearly something to at least a small percentage of sightings, but just what that might be... no idea.
  11. I thought it sounded familiar.

    Are Wads objectively or subjectively good?

    Bit of both. For example, I could slap together a map in under ten minutes which is two massive rooms connected by an excessively large door with tiling door textures, and slap a cyber in the other room with no ammo, no better weapons, and no exit. No one's going to call that good. That's an extreme example, but it illustrates that there's definitely aspects of construction where the vast majority of people would look at a particular map and agree it's objectively bad. Similarly, you could say it has objectively bad gameplay. One cyber versus a pistol and 50 bullets, that's not going to be fun, even to the most extreme of masochists. For example, I dislike Plutonia and Doom 64 immensely. I just do not find them fun to play. I would call them objectively well made on the whole and I suspect most would agree with me, but subjectively due to the gameplay design I dislike them. Good gameplay definitely compensates for less than ideal design more than good design compensates for crap gameplay. Many of the classic megawads have some less than well put together maps, and certainly they falter further compared to many modern releases. But they are generally pretty fun to play still.

    YouTube ads are amazing

    I pay for a YouTube music subscription so no ads on YouTube for me.
  15. I like good maps, be they linear or not.
