The Doom(2016)slayer even has the best moments in the game despite never uttering a word.

His actions define his character, and it's a great depiction.

i like that he is kinda the opposite side of the coin of legit good characters out of simplistic characters. with BJ in the new wolfenstein games, who despite murdering hundreds upon hundreds of nazis, is a pretty decent dude and kinda a deep and insightful and his backstory is relitically tragic but shows how her persevered.

I used to be scared of playing first person shooters because of how easy it would be for enemies to sneak up behind me and gank me. Somehow Half-Life cured me of this fear even though enemies teleport in behind you sometimes in that game.

The animation work was really outstanding. They sold the essence of The Slayer being some kind of rage elemental with only a handful of gestures.

The stuff I've seen with Doom Eternal shows a lot of third-person camera during cutscenes and additional NPCs interacting with the character and... man I dunno, I hope they can retain the level of quality we saw in 2016.

I feel so seen right now. I got Metroid Prime when I was like 10 or 11 and it took me like 4 years to actually get brave enough to actually play it through for once. My dad even printed out an entire walkthrough of it and it just sat in my nightstand for the longest time.

Metroid Prime has excellent atmosphere though so while I find it funny, I do not blame people for finding the game tense, spooky or offputting.

Did they ever do a Wolfenstein where nazis open a portal to hell, with like a steam-powered cyberdemon as the final boss?

There's something like that in the old Wolfenstein phone rpg. The final boss is the cyberdemon from doom, but it still has his og limbs. BJ cuts off the cyberdemons arm and leg, and it retreats, implying thats the reason why the cybedemon has those metal limbs. Cuz BJ cut em off lmao.

If you have not played doom 2016, I very highly recommend it. Plus, the post-tutorial intro is one of the best title cards I have ever seen, everything about it is perfect
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fW6X1TFRvI0

I won't say the game is perfect, while I enjoyed the later fights, the last couple levels are a bit samey, but man, that was such a minor issue when taken with the rest of the game, and to top it off it had really solid exploration and secret hunting. One of the few games I've 100%'d.

Oh, and I don't think anyone has mentioned it yet, but the soundtrack by Mick Gordon is PHENOMENAL. Like holy poo poo, it's so unbelievably good.

The Gunplay and weight to Max's movements are great, but replaying it is a slog with all those cutscenes.

It's also my reaction to jump scares in video games.

I might've been kicked out of a spooky place for swinging at a scare actor, and that also transcended to spooky games, where even the drat piano in Mario 64 knocks me out.

The most recent Doom has a few jump points, but it's so rediculous and stupid, that I just love it, because it's kind of like playing on God Mode as you decapitate monster after monster

While I loved Doom 2016. The original doom cyberdemon was more iconic in its design and I would rather have seen an updated version of that. The 2016 one looks more like a lumpy alien than a demon. The original cyberdemon gives more occult hell merged with machine vibes.
