the old Doom games where and still are my favorite games of all time, i even think
its better than the new Doom they brought out on the 360. ok the graphics wernt much cop
But, the gameplay was Superb remember how intense the game was suddenly you would flick a switch to open a door next to you, but when you hit it to your supprise the lights would dim and all hell would be on your behind comming at you from all angles, let me tell you i must have used about 5 pairs of underpants just trying to reach level 3. not to mention the ammount of air fresheners i went through.
Bring Back The Oldies, Old Games Are Like A Fine Wine, They Get Better With Age !

I don't think that games are like wine.
Some of the old games, are not so easy to control. Maybe it's because I got used to play with all that "easing" stuff. For examole Warcraft series. I played "Tides of Darkness a lot", even bought all of the originals (ToD, BtDP, BN.edition), but I didn't enjoyed Orcs And Humans. Play with keabord, or click on icons ... blah ... no AI! It made me nervous, so I abandoned that title.

game-crack is right, the only thing about new doom which was better were graphics and sounds. all the good stuff like gameplay and great level design, which are most important thing about the game are gone, and game changed to walk through linear almost-same levels with pretty high requirements

The "gets better with age" is really a case-by-case thing. Some games age very fast, some don't at all.

Everyone is saying that doom 3 and the expansion suck, but they clearly have not played the mod Dungeon Doom (the expansion version)

Playing Doom 3 didn't impress me. It looke to me like a graphics demo for John Carmak's latest engine. The gameplay didn't offer anything that I couldn't find in other games, games like Doom 1. Sure the graphics were great, but if I wait a few months I can pay the same money, get the same graphics AND get some unique gameplay options. Like Prey. Okay, it didn't impress me that much, but it makes the point.

Sure, mods may be great, but that (rarely) justifies a still $60 tag.

I've said it before, Halflife (1) was the last FPS to impress me. Since then few have offered anything new. Even Halflife 2 didn't offer anything Halflife 1 didn't have. Except the gravity gun, but that was sort of a "here's something cool, but we're just going to use it to break up your same ol FPS game play." I have hope for portal, but the only way I'll be truely impressed with it is if you NEVER get any sort of offensive weapon. Now that would be interesting to me.

Yeah, now. It's been out for what, a couple years now. It cost more when it was just out.
