Default DOOM II

Here's my review of DOOM II, which will hopefully replace Kosta's very short (and very unfair IMO) review on the game's info page:

That's not very objective, is it?

I thought the review was supposed to be the reviewer's personal opinion...?

No, a review has to describe the game from a neutral point of view, otherwise how would you know what is it like, if you can't or don't want to or haven't played it yet?
Not sure if I said Gryzor III is the perfect game you wouldn't be disappointed.
The same can be applied to any game ever.

I find it more convincing when someone says they had fun with it and describes a nifty quest in the game, for example, that might catch your attention... than, well, boring comparisons of graphics or gameplay quirks from a neutral PoV. *shrug*

There is a fine line, a reviewer needs to explain why they personally like a game but be objective about its flaws and good points. There is no perfect game and every game has its flaws a reviewer needs to be able to point them out so that people who don't know the game or are unsure have a fair point of reference to see if they do want to play it.

I no longer want this request to be fulfilled. I just had a MAJOR falling out with DOOM, but I don't wanna talk about it right now. I'll explain after I cool down about it...

All right, let me clear this up:

I don't hate DOOM, but now I don't have nearly as much respect for the game as I did a few days ago. Why? Because I just learned (the hard way) that the majority of DOOM's fanbase is nothing but a bunch of mean and immature douchebags.

To save me some spit, I'll just link to the entire incident:
Part 1 = http://www.doomworld.com/vb/post-hel...oom-star-wars/
Part 2 = http://www.doomworld.com/vb/post-hel...-to-post-hell/
Part 3 = http://www.doomworld.com/vb/post-hel...uck-doomworld/
"Mystery Man in 3D" was my username on there.

Not only is DOOMWorld the oldest and largest DOOM community out there, it's pretty much the only one left on the Internet AFAIK. So if they represent DOOM's fanbase, it's VERY hard to see why the game's popularity and fame has lasted this long...

DOOM will never be my Favorite Game again.

The GOOD news that comes from this, is that Mortal Kombat is now once again my Favorite Game Series, this time completely unopposed! DOOM was the only game that was giving MK a run for its money as my Favorite Game IMO, but now that DOOM's no longer an option, MK reigns supreme!

I'll change my avatar and signature to comply with this tomorrow...
