the best shooter game actually

>> No.7344874

its ok, kinda blends together into a forgettable mess outside of a handful of levels. Samey encounters and six keys lol

>> No.7344973

No, it doesn't. If you think this game is "samey" it's your own fault, because it means you have a very small sense awareness. Every level in this game is hand made and unique with such an execution that it puts most games to shame. I really wish that casuals and ignorant people like yourself would stop posting their low-effort "opinions" here, because I think it's fair to say that you contribute nothing to this board, and not a single person gets a smile or insight from what you waste your time writing here. Leave this place. Do something else. Let people who actually care about these topic be in peace.

Blood, Thief and Doom (Hexen, Strife).

Blood is a lot of fun and the levels always have a healthy variety that keeps it fresh. Hitscanning enemies are a pain in the ass but once you have a tommy gun with decent ammo you can just stunlock them to death.

>> No.7346362

Quake is easily better.
Doom II is arguably better, and definitely so in my opinion.

They don't hurt on Pink on the Inside or Lightly Broiled, the starting difficulties everyone should be looking at when playing the first time through. Otherwise the ninjas shooting you in Shadow Warrior are worse to deal with, and they don't "ruin" the game they're in either.

Build engine games where the peak of singleplayer FPS campaigns

Its funny that its only now that games are being made that resemble this with the indie retro FPS revival. For a decade games that were called a throwback to retro FPS like Painkiller, were just Serious Sam clones that locked you in a room with enemies.

>levels actually resemble real places (movie theaters,graveyards) and have a logic to them instead of being abstract mazes like what he Doom engine was limited to
This is actually a downgrade. Abstraction gives more freedom and creativity to level design and that's the reason why the Doom scene is so popular now and then. Build engine games will never be as great as Doom engine games.

>> No.7347885

Hard disagree. The effort that goes into making a stage look like something is that much more mentally stimulating. The freedom to make a bunch of rooms connected by hallways with no clear purpose isn't that liberating. You can make stages that vaguely resemble rooms with function with a great deal of freedom. Nobody is going to fault you if every major building doesn't have restrooms or an exact layout or anything.

>instead of being abstract mazes like what he Doom engine was limited to
Play HACX to see the kind of architecture you can do in the Doom engine, it has office buildings with elevators and cities with streets and and alley ways. It was the last commercially released licensed total conversion in the engine in 97 so it's not a new mod or something that takes advantage of features not in the original engine.

>> No.7348572

Powerslave DOS is ok but it really doesn't compare to console Powerslave (Powerslave EX is the modern PC port). You're out of your fucking mind if you think it compares to Blood, the protag doesn't even have a fucking name and the few voice lines they added to the PC version are laughably bad. "EAT IT!" "C'MON!"

I would not post that alongside Redneck Rampage. RR's sprites are completely jank. Few frames in every animation, sprites WAY too wide so they clip through shit just by rotating around the enemies. Low quality models used for their characters.

Half life

First reply wasn't me. I love Half Life but the best shooter ever is Doom II, followed closely by Quake. Blood is easily in the top 10 though, if not top 5.

>> No.7350070

Would you care to explain why you consider Doom 2 the best shooter ever? I'm just playing through it (on ultraviolence) after having completed Doom (with Thy Flesh Consumed) last week and being almost halfway through, I must say I'm not enjoying it as much as the original (despite absolutely loving the new enemies and the super shotgun). The huge levels (mostly those done by S. Petersen) tend to be a little too dispersed and the art direction is severly lacking compared to Romero's levels, which are few and far in between. There's also the "shoot the wall to reveal a secret" thing, which is featured way too rarely and inconsistently for the player to expect it, as well as too much experimentation with verticality, which is impressive, but kinda sucks from the perspective of being limited to vertical autoaim, which often leads to unintended missed or launching rockets in your own face, a problem which occured waaay less in the first game.
I'm still enjoying the game greatly, but I can't quite understand what makes it the best shooter ever, since the game so obviously tries to punch above the idtech 1's limitations.

it's funny you should mention the secrets because this is the first game since doom that I actively want to look for the secrets. the rewards are good, and it's been fun.
