    Doom 1 or Doom 2 music?

    My life would complete if a company used it as hold music.

    Doom 1 or Doom 2 music?

    Cards on the table, which game has the best soundtrack? For me, Doom flattens Doom 2 in terms of music. The tracks are more memorable, energetic and even the downbeat ones like E2M4 and E1M8 are haunting. For me the only true dud is E1M6. As for Doom 2, I do have a nostalgia for them but most of the tunes are fairly low-key/underwhelming. The music for Icon of Sun however is as good as anything Bobby Prince ever produced which funnily enough was made during the Doom 1 development cycle. if anyone has got a case for TNT then I would be fascinated to hear it.

    would a slow song work in doom levels...?

    Still one of the most beautiful pieces of music I’ve ever heard in a video game.
  4. Using the available Bobby Prince midis from commercial Doom, what music do you feel would be more appropriate for a level? For example I think that E1M7 would suit a faster paced midi say for example E2M1s. This fits the whole Rocky, run and gun, chew through hitscanners vibe for EP1. Any thoughts?

    Doom TNT Music

    I recognise opinions on TNT are very mixed on this forum but one aspect I feel doesn’t receive enough discussion is the music itself. For the record the intermission music is one of the most beautiful pieces of music in Doom. What are your thoughts ?

    Honest opinions on Strife

    I noticed a mixed reaction on this forum to strife, which somewhat surprised me slightly because as far as atmosphere, immersion and story go I think it's one of the best games to ever use the doom engine. Your thoughts?

    Single Most Iconic thing from Doom

    I would the cheats 'IDDQD' and 'IDKFA' have became one of the most iconic, well known cheats in video game history.

    (Least) Favorite IWAD?

    Strife is my all time favorite IWAD. The story, the atmosphere, the weapons, the locations and the innovations built on the doom engine are considerable. The game does lose a bit of steam by the time you get to the factory but other than that it's easily in my top three games of all time. Shame it came out in 1996 rather than 1995, at least then it wouldn't have had Quake to make look like somewhat of a technological dinosaur.

    Who thought... [cacodemon eyes]

    Jesus, 16 years of thinking that the two black slits are actually the Cyberdemons eyes. CANNOT UNSEE.

    Which half of Final Doom is better?

    Well to that I say: And ?

    The ultimate Strife sequence break

    Just want to say, IMO this game is the pinnacle of the doom engine.

    What is the Anomaly exactly?

    Sorry, I should have been more clear. I'm just referring to what makes the Phobos & Deimos Anomalys.. well anomalys?

    What is the Anomaly exactly?

    Always wondered what it was. I thought it may be referring to the teleporters themselves, not sure really. Is it the platform doomguy uses to teleport into the shores of hell ? Or it the giant star where the Barons of Hell reside? Any thoughts?
  14. I'd agree with that. A higher tier monster with that pain chance better have high damage to prove any sort of challenge. They make an awesome sound when they die though.
  15. Instead of of patronising the guy, I agree with him about a lot of these things.
