Do any of the pc codes work on Doom 1 and 2?

And what setting is doable if you're not that good? Ultra violence isn't my thing it seems.

Just bump the difficulty down a notch if its too hard. Are you playing DOOM1+2 or 3?

If doom 1-2 learn to love your shotgun, keep distance from everything, kill hitscan enemies first and learn to circle strafe the horde.

1 and 2. 3 is too scary for me tbh.

Idk how the game plays in BFG, if it allows mouse look or not. If it does, just learn to circle strafe like a champ. Shot gun everything small, rocket clusters of foes, chaingun mancubi and cacodemons, and plasma/bfg barons and cyber/spider demons.

One good way to get really good at the game is to find a level, and start there playing it without any saves. If you die, try again. This will let you learn the level design and hone your skills up.
My favorite level in Doom 1 is E1M7, computer station. For doom 2 Dead simple, and if you have Plutonia lvl 32 Go2It.

Go2It is hard as fuck but teaches you how to conserve health pickups for big fights.

Don't listen to this man. Doom 3 was a great game, it just shouldn't have been called Doom 3.

Yeah, if it was called "John Carmack's System Shock", it would be a lot better remembered.

if you like an overhyped graphics-demo with shitty gunplay, the worst shotgun-sound in history and levels that look like they were covered in nail-polish
filled with only 3-4 enemies because the shitty engine can't handle more,
then its a fun game.

It's not shitty gameplay.

It's an entirely different genre of shooter to what Doom and DOOM 2016 were. It's a horror game that likes you to leave you scared and helpless in the dark.

>levels that look like they were covered in nail-polish
Dude. That's how lighting and bump-mapping worked at the time, the original Xbox era. That particular aesthetic also persisted well through the next console generation as well, only dying off with the current one as we moved toward PBR materials and modern game engines.

>it just shouldn't have been called Doom 3.
If you think DOOM 2016 bears any more resemblance to the original Doom than Doom 3 you're looking at it with nostalgia goggles.
DOOM 2016 diverged off into action gameplay while Doom 3 embraced the horror aesthetic of the original as its defining feature. They're both equally different takes.

And if I were being as much of an asshole as you assholes I'd be bitching about how Doom 2016 isn't a real Doom because it's too much like Quake.

Fuck off.

I agree doom 3 gets too much flak. The hell levels were fucking great and the game plays more like a faster paced survival horror with secrets. I didn't like the expansion as much though, too many gimmicks.

It was overhyped, but there was definitely a game in there, if your PC was good enough to render all the shadows. I don't see why the fact that it was overhyped and had good graphics means no one could possibly find it a fun game.

I mean, everything from the enemy AI to the soundto the flashlight/gun dichotomy was designed to produce jump scares, and it did that very well. That was the gameplay loop, being scared and then blasting the shit out of everything while the adrenaline's flowing.

Doom 3 is fucking amazing as far as horror shooters go.

You're clearly just salty about something. Perhaps that your PC was unable to run the game. Graphically it still looks good, despite some of the dated polys. Some of the ordinary textures are still just as high res as those being put out today.

Nah friend, DOOM '16 is much closer to the original with small story interludes between large mostly open levels with the focus being almost solely on the action. Doom 3 was a fairly straight forward linear level design with a much greater focus on story and a much more controlled "cinematic" experience. That's not nostalgia goggles, that's a pretty objective difference. I love both games, so don't try to play that nostalgia goggles card bro.

And when I said it just shouldn't have been called Doom 3 my point was that it would never have gotten most of the shit it did if it were called Doom: Backstory or whatever instead of Doom 3. Imagine if WoW were called Warcraft 4 instead. That's a more drastic example, but it gives you the idea of what I'm saying.

Only thing that sucks about Doom 3 is that all your shit is taken from you when you go to hell.
I pretty much exclusively used the shotgun because it worked so well and saved all the other guns for hell because my friend told me that place is pretty difficult.

The game is indeed scary. I never been scared of anything irl or horror movies or RE series... but that game unsettles me.

Doom 64 is close.

I find old Dooms cute in a weird way with the monsters.

You guys are both pussies. Just play with the lights on if you have to and volume on low. That's what I had to do when I beat it as a punk bitch kid.

The only negative about playing on acid was the next morning I walked to mcdonalds for a cinnamon roll and some OJ, and when I get back home to take a nap on my couch every second my eyes closed I could still see the stairs leading to my bedroom, only fucking imps were creeping down them. It wasn't spooky but fucking annoying.

Annoying behind-closed-eyelids sprites are the worst, like guests at a party that refuse to leave the next morning.

One time I was on lsd at my friend's apartment and I hallucinated that the zombie on his red dead redemption poster was crawling out of the wall after me. I would have been scared, but I knew I was just tripping, so I just sat there for a few minutes and watched this rotting corpse try to claw its way out of a hole in the wall. Pretty good. I can only i.agine doom 3 would be terrifying.
