[8/17/04] Doom III


Recommended Posts

How can you give gameplay a 4 when it's EXACTLY the same as in the original DOOMs?

How can anyone not see that it is completely different?

You can't notice much if you think it is identical to Doom 1 and 2.

 

It may say Doom on the box but it's nothing like the predecessors.

 

The first two are mindless fun with thousands of enemies, baddies attacking from multiple angles, scramble to survive etc

 

The other is scary and slow paced, un-fun and similar to other FPSs.

 

An absolutely ridiculous decision from Id to disregard their whole franchise and just make the game completely basic and un-original.

 

Why bring out a sequel to Doom and make it Half-Life with better graphics?

Video game plot is like porn with story.

Hehe...I love it when John Carmack said that.

 

"Story in a game is like a story in a porn movie. It's expected to be there, but it's not that important."

That line is implanted in my head, along on what Hollenshed had his take on piracy at QuakeCon`04.

Yep, story is absolutely unimportant.

 

Are Gradius, Crazy Taxi, Super Mario Bros, Virtua Cop and so on crap because they don't have a story? No.

 

The sooner the games industry realises that stories are not essential, the better.

A BAD story can get REALLY annoying, it'd be better if they got rid of those.

So basically, developers should only implement a story if they can do it well. 90% of developers always add story but can't do it. Maybe someone should tell them to quit because they suck.

 

Halo, Metal Gear Solid, TimeSplitters, Sands of Time - the list is endless, all have sh/t stories. Hardly any games have a good enough story to compete with movies, books and even TV shows.

Hey Fatal, don't know whether you thought Shenmue was a good story or a bad one. ????

 

I think it is pretty good. Not as good as many movies obviously, but for games it is quite good. Especially with the Shen Hua section and that lovely cherry blossom tree. Don't get that crystal bit at the end of Shenmue 2 though. :)

 

Anyway, it may get finished. Shenmue Online is coming soon, and if this sells well enough, someone may give Yu Suzuki a few million dollars to make part 3. :D :D :D

 

I hope so. I want to get Lan Di.
