Doomed from the start? Doom 3 BFG Announcement Trailer

Well we all know what BFG from the Original Classic Doom stands for but Doom 3 BFG might as well stand for BFD (big f-ing deal).  Time and Time again Video games are coming back from the “so called” dead and being recycled and reused to bring back some gamers of yester-years.  Is it working?  Ummm I don’t know.  Those gamers seem to have moved onto either ipad touch games or taking care of their children, mortgage, jobs, etc.  There seems to be a lull in video games right now.  So much still to play but kind of all the same old same old.  I mean if someone wanted to play Doom couldn’t they just play the original one?  I know people that still are playing it.  I must say for the time I enjoyed the first Doom.  I didn’t playing it on PC but I played it on the Sega Genesis 32x.  It worked out to be pretty fun and still gave me enough motion sickness to leave me dizzy for weeks.  Well with all that being said the Trailer for this game looks pretty damn good.  They should try and release it around Halloween or something seeing this game has more of a horror factor to it than the original one.   Will this be one your pick up?  Comment below and let me know your thoughts.  I would wait till this one hit the bargain bin IMO.

One thought on “Doomed from the start? Doom 3 BFG Announcement Trailer

  1. I have to say that in the past 10 years I love 3 FPS games more than any others. Half-Life 2, Unreal Tournament, and Doom 3. Doom 3 was truly one of those scare the crap out of you games. Whether it was the atmosphere, or the haunting sounds, it really gave me quite a scare to play the first time I went through the game. For a lot of teenage gamers now, they most likely have never played Doom 3 or its expansion Resurrection of Evil, so this is a good opportunity for younger gamers to finally see how truly scary this game can be.

    Its unfortunate that the game didn’t do too well in the critics eyes but I thought it stuck to the Doom roots and was very well made. I remember when the game came out that it had an “Ultra Setting” for the graphics and even the top end graphics card at the time couldn’t run it on this setting. The PC version of the game came out before widescreen monitor resolutions were dominant and it doesn’t support widescreen out of the box (there is some modding to the ini file needed to get the game widescreen). Nevertheless the game still looked amazing and the lighting really made the game extremely creepy.

    I’m surprised that Bethesda and ID software would be re-releasing this game after all these years. I thought for sure that a Doom 4 was in the works or a Quake 5 even thought Quake 4 wasn’t all that good. It appears that this game is coming out for Xbox 360 and PS3, why no a PC release is a question I have after all the changes in the past 5 years related to video technologies.

    Anyone who has not played Doom 3 and wants a good scary game, I recommend picking this up and playing with the volume up and the lights out, you’ll see how the horror genre of games began.
