    Nah, I actually glad you reminded me about the game, because I started all over again on nightmare, but this time with a gamepad :D You don't wanna know how hard it is, it's almost hopeless how lame I'm with that thing, and I drop like flies now;)

    Gamepad is nightmare itself, especially when you're against flying creatures like cacodaemons or lost souls. :D In Doom 2 it was fun with auto-aim. But I remember how scary it was playing with controller in Alien: Resurrection. It was damn hard to kill a single facehugger but when they come in dozens chances to survive <1% :rolleyes:

    Well I cleared the entire BFG Edition. Love the extra levels. The Double Barrel Shotgun was the best gun IMO.
    The game play, movement and graphics are so much better than the original excluding texture packs of coarse.

    Give me DOOM 4 with a military grade Auto Shotgun and a Double Barrel please :D

    I'm leaning toward BFG Edition vs mods because it adds new content, specifically The Lost Mission, an 8 level section that was cut from the original game.

    Gosh, it's really sad that some gameplay elements got dumb down. They nerfed monster respawn in some key places, just because it's difficult for console players to aim for lost souls and other frenzy enemies. :rolleyes: And they could add some option where player could choose between shoulder mounted light or classic flashlight.

    However BFG edition is really good, I like their optimizations. Faster loading times and no fps drop at all. Indeed, they should've optimized some gameplay elements and fix shadow fx but nevermind. It's also nice that they included No Rest For The Living episode.

    - Almost everything is stored in a binary format now, since they had to load things very fast from the DVDs on the consoles with idtech5, and now it's almost instant from HDDs and SSDs.
    - There are so many good custom maps for the original, so I'm not really excited about the "new" mission. It's nice to have and everything indeed, but let's not forget that it's mostly just the very same assets with different scripts/tasks.
    - The 120Hz support and the more responsive gameplay -on the other hand- is really really nice, i love it:toast:
    - About the difficulty and the PC only specific things: I think it's gonna be like that in the future.. they will do everything for the console and nothing else, release it on the PC as well and apologize for the inconvenience from the PC gamers about how little more they can offer with the PC port (if any), and then they will fix things later if they have the time and/or the resources. Money talks you know, and money is at the consoles now, the few faithful/desperate/enthusiast id software fan on the PC can and must wait:)

    Yes I agree, today it's all about consoles and mobile platforms. I miss Duke and Doom times though. :)
