    I need help choosing an FPS to play

    I guess I'll add Star Wars Dark Forces and Outlaws as recommendations. Might want to wait for The Force Engine to play those though.

    What are some doom levels that are your guilty pleasures?

    E3M8. When I first played Doom I died immediately and had to pistol start it, and I found it to be a challenging and satisfying experience, yet it's bad enough to be basically infamous. There's a few levels in the old Team TNT WADs I like that maybe aren't that great. I really like the music and atmosphere in Icarus map 24, for instance.

    Most Useful Quake 1 Weapon

    I've always favoured the grenade launcher, and after finding out it has a higher rate of fire than the rocket launcher, it's pretty much all I want to use. RL is usually thought of as the best in DM from what I gather.

    I need help choosing an FPS to play

    I'd say go with Doom 2 first. It'll probably be easier to start with than Quake and the other Build games (on that note play Duke before you play the other two). Be sure to check out Unreal as well, though maybe not the second one.

    How do I get into metal?

    I'd recommend you listen to the most highly regarded albums by the most popular and influential bands like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Slayer, Motorhead, Venom and so on. Then you can figure out which styles you like and delve deeper.
  7. I don't like it either, but I don't care much since the classic games will always be there, and it's not like we're short of other shooters.

    Save button addiction

    I press the save button pretty much every time I add something to the document on Word.

    Do mappers use Wolfenstein SS in maps/wads?

    I've ran into the Commander Keens a lot more than the Wolf SS playing popular WADs. Besides ALT, the NDCP uses the SS in MAP32, and there's a few thrown in in MAP12 of Community Chest 3 for some reason.

    Great games that made you give up for any reason

    Multiple Ultima games. Even with 6 I've never had the patience to play it for more than 20 minutes or so, and I haven't tried 7 yet. Anything older than that can't hold my attention, unfortunately. Actually, this happens with me for RPGs in general, even more recent ones like those Legend of Heroes games. I guess I just don't have the patience for them. As for FPS, every time I try to play Rise of the Triad I give up within the first few levels. I think I just find it a bit too weird for my liking.

    should i beat wolfnestein 3d?

    If your goal is to play through the most prolific FPS games, then obviously yes. Episode 6 actually does have a fair few tedious levels, but you still might as well finish it if you're already that far.

    DE makes me so unreasonably mad [rant]

    Well, you could always pretend it isn't canon.
  13. I'd say Quake and Unreal are the best of all even though they're a bit later. I do also like the Heretic and Duke soundtracks a lot.
  14. I assume that most people got into (classic) Doom by playing Doom and Doom II themselves first. It just seems like a logical place to start even if you're getting into it for the first time now.

    1 Weapon Has to Go...

    Wouldn't choose the chainsaw even if I could. Pistol is the obvious choice. Normal shotgun if that's not allowed, though Doom 1's balance would probably be ruined without it.

    New Guy's Thoughts on Alien Vendetta

    Not a bad start beating AV on UV. You'll probably have a pretty easy time with FD/Sigil. I'd definitely recommend giving similar WADs like Scythe 2, Speed of Doom or Valiant a go at some point.

    Top 5 Metal/Rock albums?

    Cathedral - Forest of Equilibrium Trouble - Psalm 9 Celtic Frost - Morbid Tales Emperor - In the Nightside Eclipse Darkthrone - Panzerfaust Five isn't many though, so my choices would probably change fairly often.

    Plutonia 3 [boom-compatible megawad]

    He's probably talking about this one.

    Back to Saturn X difficulty

    It might not take you as long as you think to get good enough to beat it with minimal saving if you practice. If you know how the enemies and weapons work then the same basic principles still apply. I had a fairly similar experience playing popular PWADs for the first time.

    Games you're excited to play 2021

    Mostly indies. Gloomwood, Graven, Core Decay, full Prodeus and Wrath, hopefully the Amid Evil and Ion Fury expansions.

    Does anyone make custom Wolfenstein 3d levels?

    You'd be better off looking on Wolf 3D focused sites for this, unless it really has to be in Doom for some reason. People do make vanilla or near-vanilla mapsets for Wolfenstein 3D. Here's a list for the former category. Acktung and Acktung 2 seem to be especially well regarded among Wolf 3D players.
  22. Revenant missile. All the more obnoxious with the screen flashing red.

    what is the best doom wad according to you

    Same here. I still like it more than most of the WADs that it inspired for some reason.

    The thread that belongs to oblivion

    I've spent years doing nothing besides lurking and downloading WADs. Making an account is an improvement on that score. I would like to create WADs myself, not just out of wanting to contribute, but a genuine interest in what I could come up with. It's a matter of having the time as well, though.

    Is Machinegames' BJ Blazkowicz A Monster?

    That's pretty typical content from AAA games if I remember right. I'm sure I remember scenes like that in games like Bioshock Infinite or Uncharted.
