Leave it to some survey to bring out a topic that could last us an entire show. I mean, it doesnâ€™t last the whole show, but we easily could have squeezed an hour out of discussing video game movies. And we were just talking about ones that havenâ€™t even been made yet much less the talk we could have had on the ones already out there and upcoming.
Iâ€™ve been recently getting back into DOOM from 2016. Itâ€™s fun, of course, but there isnâ€™t much to say about it outside of that. I could say itâ€™s all style and no substance but that wouldnâ€™t be correct either. Itâ€™s got both, but not much of either. It isnâ€™t a bad game at all. It does pretty much one thing and it does it well. I mean, itâ€™s practically the best at what it does, but I canâ€™t go much further than that. Iâ€™m not very far into it, actually, so maybe Iâ€™m being a little too hasty with the comments and this thing will blow my mind in a few levels, but so far…itâ€™s DOOM. Again, let me stress, itâ€™s not bad. Itâ€™s not boring. Itâ€™s absolutely fine and fun and enjoyable. Thereâ€™s just, so far at least, not much to it.
So, whatâ€™s the appeal of DOOM Eternal? I honestly havenâ€™t looked much into it and thatâ€™s something that will change here not long after I post this, but Iâ€™m guessing itâ€™s just more of the same and, really, for a game like DOOM – thatâ€™s all it has to be.
