Now this was a dull ride. Why do some people like it better than Duke3D again? Hard mode no nostalgia.

You'd have to be fucking retarded as shit to draw comparison between something that were released 3 years apart and share very little in common.

>Why do some people like it better than Duke3D again?
Engine has a more solid feel (inb4 NESfag, yes I know it's because Doom is much simpler with barely any of Build's features). Combat is, again, simpler, but tighter balance of weapons with lots of potential for interesting combat setups with the different monsters and level layout.

Douk has better maps, secrets, and exploration, Doom has better core combat.

>> No.4004442

Duke 3D improved on some things and isn't a bad game, but Doom's combat and setting are more interesting to me.

Only with Doom you can have a brainless action playthrough, don't even think, just boot the game and start shooting. On the other hand, you CANNOT play Duke 3D, or even worse, Blood, that way. On those games, you have to put thought into them, you have to be mentally prepared, to be in the mood of playing them. That's why Doom is more popular, even though Build games are technically superior and have objectively better gameplay

>> No.4004856

>liking Duke3D as an adult

Duke was only good as a kid or adolescent as the gameplay and maps are rubbish. Easily the worst of the big 3 Build engine games.

People prefer Doom because it's easier.

I actually liked Duke3D more at the time. But I came back to doom due to being able to mod and map for it and its sub-games like hexen and strife.

I didn't realize it at the time, but Blood was the best of the old school FPS. Replayed it recently and loved it.

Because Doom used damage models for enemies that were not total shit. You new to this type of game? Doom was based off top down twin stick games, but in first person. Duke was based off Doom but for kids.

They hit you the instant they shoot.

I'm pretty sure Duke had autoaim too. Also I would think being able to look up and down actually makes things easier.

Duke 3D has some pretty cryptic parts and puzzle elements that I didn't like. Doom is much faster paced with less backtracking and shit.

>doom babbies still think doom on uv is hard

Duke 3d is piss too btw. These retards claiming you can't play it like doom, protip: lower hitscan enemies like pigs and those machine gun lizards are easily dodgeable, not that you pillocks would ever discover a nuance so glaringly obvious. I guess it wouldn't make a difference for u retards regardless considering u have the reflexes of an old broken creeky door.

This board is such a faggot for fps.

>> No.4005764

In Duke3D you just have to move orthogonal to whatever hitscan enemy you are fighting to dodge their shots. Can't do that in Doom though which is why so many people bitch and moan about chaingunners.

You aren't dodging, you're just moving fast enough that the enemy never actually gets to aim at you.

Duke does have autoaim. So does "Blood" for that matter. All Build Engine games have it.

>> No.4006170 [DELETED] 

>Can't do that in Doom though which is why so many people bitch and moan about chaingunners.
...even though hitscanners take about five hours to react to shoot you in Doom.

In Duke, hitscanners react much faster but their shit is dodgeable (excluding battle lords and pig tanks). Since they react much faster and do more damage, Doom babbies will probably find something like Enforcers harder, even if they're dodgeable. They just don't have the reflexes to dodge in time.

Regardless, if you complain about hitscanners in Duke or Doom you're just a bitch. Doom babbies basically menstruate when they come across any hitscanner. Anything that's not an imp chucking a projectile at 2 metres per hour is well beyond their gameplay capabilities.
