ID Tech is extremely optimized.

How come you didn't decide on DOOM 2016 as your first? Just curious.

ID: ha00qhg

I decided on eternal because I saw many people say online that 2016 is more straightforward, as in go in, kill shit, complete the level, whereas eternal has more of a strategy to it, which I’ve liked in most games similar to doom. While I am still somewhat deciding on wether it was a good idea to get eternal first, I think I might just need to wait and see. Worst case scenario, I spend an extra 5 or 10 dollars on 2016 while it’s on sale.

2016 is a shorter story, not much to it but it is absolutely great. You get the story down and the setting, plus you get to see just how crazy powerful the doom guy is which is dope.

ID: ha07n4j

YMMV but I much preferred Doom 2016 as it is more crazy combat. Eternal is almost more of a high-speed puzzle FPS if that makes sense; you need to use the correct weapon for each enemy. It's fun but I honestly found it a bit stressful given the sheer number of enemies they throw at you.

I would strongly suggest you also pick up Doom 2016, it is super cheap atm.

ID: ha029nb

I would've recommended doom 2016 as a good intro to the style. Doom is a very fast, frantic, visceral game. Doom eternal is even doomier in the sense that it's even faster and more brutal. It took me a while to just to get used to the pace of doom 2016. And then doom eternal came and amped the pace up again.

ID: ha0oi30

Don't worry I didn't finish 2016, and it didn't take away form my Eternal experience.

Eternal is in my opinion one the top 5 best shooters of all time. And there are a LOT of shooters.

I do reccomend not playing on anything below Ultra-Violence though.

ID: ha06x67

To me it’s the opposite. Eternal was a pretty big let down from 2016. I was disappointed in a lot of it.

ID: ha085w3

But doom is go in kill shit!

ID: ha0diya

Yeah doesn't matter. Play the first one first, you'll get the full story that way. Skipping it is silly considering its so cheap

ID: ha05wdt

I would recommend playing Doom 2016 first. You CAN just jump into Eternal, but if you play the first one first then you'll be able to appreciate all the ways ID Software improved lots of things for the sequel.

Plus, Doom 2016 is fucking brilliant!

ID: ha0fupi

Me personally:

It was like 80% off, and I needed that sweet ray tracing. Does it really even have a story? Seems like I'm just blasting stuff

ID: ha00h17

I think eternal is on sale, 2016 might also be on sale but if it is I haven’t seen it.

ID: ha00rep

Yah, its 4.17 on gmg last i checked a week ago.

ID: ha0jno0


You are right

4 : Anonymous2021/08/23 05:32 ID: ha00p3s

I would say try doom 2016 first as it’s a better starting point and more like the originals and also very cheap on steam at the moment.

ID: ha07voc

Originals like from 1995? If so I’m glad I just nabbed it after reading so many similar comments.

ID: ha1029w

Doom Eternal is a very modern game that includes elements from all kinds of other game types. Fighting is extremely tactical and technical in terms of requiring the use of all weapons, utilities, mobility options, and everything else you have available. There's a big story being told, in some amount of detail, with cutscenes and characters. There are tons of platformer jumping puzzles. The vibe is lighter and plays much more on meta campiness as an in-joke. It's certainly a great game, technically speaking, but...

The original Doom games were simple, straight forward shooters. Pick the gun you wanted to use on a group of baddies and lay waste. There's a story there, but it's vague and you just kind of pick it up from the environments more than anything. The vibe was generally dark with a little campiness.

Doom 2016 is absolutely more "old Doom" than Eternal. 2016 is a modernization of old Doom, Doom Eternal is a modern game in the Doom universe. Both are phenomenal games that I'd recommend to anyone who likes shooters, but different people will definitely favor one over the other, and that's fine, and I think a good thing. I found the emphasis on explicit story telling rather than through vague atmospheric clues and codex entries a bit of a let down. Even though I prefer 2016, I can absolutely see why other people prefer Eternal.

ID: ha0bgb6

Well not exactly the same but much more like them than Eternal. Eternal sort of moves and changes at he formula a lot more without spoiling everything.

ID: ha0b5nn

But doom eternal is 75 percent off right now, that’s why i choose doom eternal over doom 2016

ID: ha0bb2r

Fair enough but they are basically giving away 2016 at the moment £3.75 less than buying a snack at a fast food shop.

This sub is so weird

ID: ha1lvls

Was gonna comment something similar.

This kind of posts are very unnecessary, and I don't understand why it has gotten so many upvotes (bots maybe?).

ID: ha1n53v

This sub is so easy for bots and people to farm karma. All you need to do is post a picture of literally any console that was ever made, or any game of remote popularity for the past 20 years, and you'll get a couple thousand upvotes.

Lost track of the amount of "Just bought my first Nintendo Wii/PC game. My dad used to beat me with a gun if I even mentioned games when I was a kid, upvotes to the left" I've seen.

Good against Doom Hunters. Chaingun shield to get close and blood punch them off their sled instantly. Or just freeze.

When the first doom you played was doom, like the original doom, and you see this.

You feel old, I feel old.

ID: ha1886k

Playing Doom for the first time and thinking that this is so much better than Wolfenstein.

I also bought Doom Eternal recently because it was on sale and I just upgraded my PC (most components were 7+ years old). I haven’t played this kind of fast-paced FPS in a while but my reflexes are coming back. I like the puzzles and platforming stuff too. The gore is almost comical but I love it!

Since everyone is talking about how good 2016 was, I just added it since it was only $5 still. Sale ends on the 24th!

12 : Anonymous2021/08/23 10:23 ID: ha0leo8

I didn't like it, I had fun for a few levels and got bored and have not played it since. The story was boring for me. I don't think it's a bad game. I actually think it's a very good game, I just don't think it's for me. I guess the world didn't pull me or make me interested, it felt like different versions of nasty hellscapes, I don't know what I thought it was going to be. I just didn't enjoy it myself.

ID: ha1bx6e

Same here. Like I was happy at first cause it looked and sounded good, but the more I progessed the less I was enjoying myself. I could actually feel the slow turn from excitement to disappointment in my face. The story seemed so disconnected to the previous game that I always felt like they skipped a games worth of plot to get there. That and I didnt feel like it was the same Doom guy established in Doom 2016. I think the main issue for me was the change in the core gameplay. I personally didnt like the change to a more ammo management kind of system. I found myself always just running in circles to avoid enemies and gather ammo. Plus I missed being able to just kill the small guys with a punch, and being able to chainsaw big guys- which you cant really do until later in the game.

I don't mean to be a dick, but this post is literally just a screenshot of someone's steam download queue.

To the people upvoting this –– why?

14 : Anonymous2021/08/23 06:31 ID: ha05cn4

Bro ennnnjoy, play with the audio first is my only suggestion. I like the music LOUD and some voice lines are really entertaining. Great game I love it!

15 : Anonymous2021/08/23 06:26 ID: ha04ycs

In my opinion, Doom 2016 preps you for the noticeably increased difficulty of Doom Eternal. Doom Eternal is an amazing experience, but experiencing Doom 2016 definitely helped.

16 : Anonymous2021/08/23 06:02 ID: ha034pt

It’s really good

17 : Anonymous2021/08/23 07:00 ID: ha07gzh

are you me from an alternate universe? I literally just started playing doom eternal for the first time lmao

I got stuck on this part where you have to jump across a gap by swinging on a pole and I kept thinking you needed to jump to get off the pole so I was wasting a jump and I couldn't get over to the other side...

I'm not the best at video games

18 : Anonymous2021/08/23 07:13 ID: ha08ega

Doom 1 is available with doom 3 bfg edition and can be modded with ZDoom to slightly modernize it - this is my favorite Doom so far

(Or did doom get the same treatment as quake recently and no longer needs the mod?)

19 : Anonymous2021/08/23 07:44 ID: ha0aii6

The Doom Slayer Collection (Doom 1,2,3 and Doom 2016) is on sale for really cheap at the moment. Defintiely get that, too. They are all fantastic.

20 : Anonymous2021/08/23 08:03 ID: ha0bvg8

Kinda wanted to get doom eternal but there like 5 options on steam for additions and idk what ones I should get

21 : Anonymous2021/08/23 10:39 ID: ha0mnp8
