oh yeah, DOOM 2016 is kinda mid tbh
a lot of what makes DOOM great is cut.
the multiplayer died pretty quickly because it saw no support except for shitty DLC, next to no mod support at all.
i legit don't know who thought one of the strong points in "boomer shooters" is linear stories and mediocre arenas.
is not even a bad game is just kind of there like DOOM 3.
althought at least DOOM 3 had *some sort* of multiplayer and mod support.
the only reason why it didn't stick tho was because of the shitty EULA
idk who is the main demographic for the new DOOM games but they're pretty defensive about it
so my guess is those larpers that think DOOM slayer is some sort of jerusalem crusader wehraboos and shit.
it's literally nothing to do with the lore but there you go.
like i said not even a bad game just not what i expected from a DOOM game, maybe a painkiller game which would been nice and fits the whole "play it safe" concept of the game
they were clearly trying too hard to not flop like DOOM 3 but what carried the game was the hype alone so it didn't matter because it's still lacking where it matters.
the only reason i didn't refund DOOM 2016 is because i spent 30 minutes waiting for a Multiplayer game to start (never started)
and i went 12 minutes past the 2 hour limit for refunding the game.
