If you’re actually being serious with your myopic questions, the games get criticized all the time and you’ve probably only browsed here for a week.

but most people here admit doom is flawed, hence the source ports and fixes and shit
the problem with doom's reception is that it's misleading on what the games are actually about

Let's make it a theoretical discussion: if we were to hunt for Doom criticism, what could we do? The typical offensive would be to summon Doom2, that has a plethora of crying about it ("game isn't scavvy and athmospheric now, new enemies suck, CHAINGUNNERS, Icon of Sin sucks"). But I'm honestly at a loss to conjure good criticism of Doom: some maps have sometimes clumsy design? Weapons are perfunctory - but again it's the start of it all, it DEFINED weapons in FPS games - . You can criticize Doom on the technical level, or attempt a critique that it ain't Marathon if you are a storyfag.

The worst part about Doom 1 and 2 is the damage RNG and they would've been better games without it. Thankfully it's easy to modify the code to make the damage values consistent, or make a GZDoom mod for that.

Man I remember being annoyed by this and feeling like an outsider because of it like twenty years ago. I posted something kinda like this once on a message board, even. I've never been a big Doom fan.

Even back then though, I basically thought it was a pretty good game. Because it is, right? I agree that there shouldn't be fifty "HEY DID YOU KNOW THAT ZELDA III AND CASTLEVANIA WHICHEVER ARE ACTUALLY BAAAAAAD AND ALSO MARIO 2 IS DOKI" threads. But I don't blame the lack of Doom-trashing threads for that. Rather, I think there should be less Zelda-trashing threads and Castlevania-trashing threads. It's pretty simple. Heck even Xenogears-trashing threads, although that game might actually deserve it. It's healthier to actually like things.

I actually know the answer to this. Normalfaggots are usually bullies and normalfaggots love shit like first person shooters more than any other actually comfy tier game like a jrgp for instance. They bother 'comfy' dweeb playing video gamers and the dweebs never bother them. it's why to this day shit like the incel meme comes up or crab meme. They don't troll themselves. Ancient Greece, Rome, and modern (white) (superior) nations to this day are all the types to want bitches, slaves. In ancient Rome there were apparently areas where a city was 80 percent pre-slaves. They want to beat you into bieng more manly. That's the point of bullying. It's a military thing and obviously they'd be the type to worship military tier games such as call of duty, medal of honor, james bond games, quake even, and Doom of course.

It's just the way the faggots are. They should fuck off to fakebook but the sjw ethics banned trolling online so they have to come here to get the dick out of their systems. It's a shit show.
