CRAZY DUMB ZEALOT
I've been marveling a lot at the Doom 3 pentagram appearing all over the place within and without the game. It looks fairly elaborate, and has that Doomguy face stuffed in it just in case. If you don't know what I'm talking about, do a Google image search. Or look at POTGIESSER's current avatar, God forbid him change it now.
However, within it I can see vague features of the mouth (teeth), horns, ears and eyes of the "baphomet" goat. However, it's heavily superimposed by other, nondescript features. Unfortunately, an outside non-Doomer viewer, on glimpsing the pentagram, might also expect the goat head. But that's really a detail that won't become apparent until after examination, and won't stand out very much.
So I'm asking: were the id artists concerned of demonic exposition in Doom 3, to the media, so they decided to make it look more alien, cryptic and less "satanic"? They started with a classic Goatface-on-pentagram picture, then nerfed it to look like that? That would lower the value of the drawing in my eyes, whose only saving grace being that it's a staple to a great game, Doom 3 as it is.
Also, disregard my sig. I'm really atheistic, but I give a damn about free speech of harmless expression.
