    Warming Up

    How did Doom change gaming for you?

    I think the overall reason DooM stands up to this days is because it looked "complete". I mean, somehow,most recent 3d games, from quake to farcry, try to look realistic and fail to do so (each generation fails less and less), whereas doom had some sort of comic book feel, that it just was what it was. It didn't strive for realism, it achieved its own reality. Hard to explain, but i think that's it.

    Doom 1 or 2?

    Final Doom, 'cause it's the first one I played that wasn't shareware. I remember i got it at the same time as warcraft 2... those were the days.

    Doom vs Silent Hill

    What dead arachnotrons? :)
  5. That guy deserves a frickin medal for that FAQ (did he get anything for it?). If you ask me, we could chip in, everyone in the community, a buck or two, to get him to update it, and include source ports and the like. God, I've got nothing to do...

    Doom vs Silent Hill

    Heh, just imagine being the Doom guy in Silent Hill, and Harry Mason in hell, one having fun with the plasma gun at alchemilla hospital, and the other taking on a Baron with 12 shots in his handgun, two shotgun shells left and a crowbar. IMO the doom demons would laugh long and hard at Silent Hill's own spawns.

    Tunnel wads

    Can anyone suggest a good wad set in underground lairs and tunnels? similar to that Evilution map (like 16 or 17, can't remember dammit). Or maybe something on the lines of e3m2 : )

    What system did you have your 1st Doom expierence?

    I remember seeing it in a cousin's house, and i clearly remember it was phobos' lab. He was playing with a friend and he wouldn't let me near. i remember i was playing wolf3d back then, and Doom looked beyond cool! When i finally got it on shareware my pc was: 486 @ 100 mHz 8MB RAM 70MB HD (lol, i remember that there were times when i had to free up memory because Descent needed 15MB of free space, and i had only 3 -- man, 3MB of free space!!!) Windows 3.1 My soundcard was pretty generic, but it got sound out of doom. Sadly, that was my pc until 1996...

    Games that DID live up to the hype.

    Megaman X!!! Daggerfall Starcraft DooM (IMO, as much as i love Super Metroid, MP brought the concept to 3D so good it's better)

    Ebay -- DOOM Anthology

    Good value? I don't think so. You could find all the games for much less than 100 dollars. perhaps the figurine is worth something extra...
  13. i like Theatre of tragedy, specially while playing E3. Others would be Tristania, Iron Maiden, and the occasional One (the song from Metallica, not a band). For Heretic, Rhapsody rules!

    More Frags!

    Can anyone give me a few quick pointers at how to play better multiplayer sessions? I'm using Zdaemon, and even if I do get a few frags, i'm getting killed a lot, sometimes even less than a second after i respawn. The gameplay is so frantic, for example, i'm having a lot of trouble aiming and timing. any tips?

    is there any port for strife? cause my pc won't run properly, like with no sound, no music, no nothing, and the resolution itself is kinda tiring to the eyes.
