Poll What is the Best Doom Game? (79 votes)

Doom 1 24%
Doom 2 22%
Doom 3 23%
Doom (reboot) 29%

So my dear friends, as we know Doom is one of the oldest franchise that is still going on. each and every game evolved from previous games. and this is one of those only franchise that never ever had a bad game before. so lets talk about it

Doom 1

No Caption Provided

Doom 2

No Caption Provided

Doom 3

No Caption Provided

Doom (reboot)

No Caption Provided

In my 20 years of gaming experience. I have never seen any franchise that evolved this much without having a single bad, dissapointing game. when it comes to atmosphere and longeviety and experience i consider Doom 3 the best. when it comes to a game that define modern shooter in the vien of old school i consider Doom reboot is best. when it comes the game that create and revolutionaize FPS genre I consider first 2 best. as they are the reason why FPS exist today. back in days FPS were called Doom clones

So my friends, which Doom from 4 Excellent, Incredible, masterpieces, universal, Epic games you consider best?

Doom Reboot for me.

Doom 1 started it. Doom II refined it. Doom 3 was meh. Doom Reboot has the graphics, yet still has that demon-ripping fast gameplay that made the fist two so fun.

Doom 64...ok, to be fair it was the first and only (until Doom 3) Doom game that i played...but i thought it was a fun game despite being dark as hell, still it was fun for what it was.

Doom 3 was also a very enjoyable game, sure it is kind of a generic "Horror Shooter" (it was also dark as hell...jeez whas't wrong with some light) and again, i liked it for what it was.

Haven't had the chance to play the Reboot, but it looks fun as well.

Jeez, so hard to pick favorites, they're each great. I loved Doom back when it released, though I like Doom 2 better, just greater enemy variety, great maps, more challenging, double barrel shotgun. Doom 1 was the first game I played, back when they sold shareware on 3.5 inch floppies in a cardboard/paper pouch at computer/game stores for $4.99, I actually had full Doom 2 before I acquired the disc retail version of the original Doom. It wouldn't even run on the PC I had back then, had to take my computer in to double RAM from 4MB to 8MB, and upgraded my HDD from 200MB with an extra 500MB hard-drive (didn't need it to run Doom, but why not?). Back then it was only mail order, but I found it magically at the local university bookstore on their shelf and got it in a heartbeat. It'd still be some time before they released it properly at retail, when they did though they did it with the 4th campaign I never played. Didn't get to play that until many years later when I got it on Xbox 360.

But Doom 3 & 4 are just so different. I loved Doom 3 back in its day, I liked the introduction of more story elements for its time, PDAs and audio logs to flush out more story, and at the time I thought it was a pretty scary game, even the imps frightened me, the use of shadows and hidden spaces and reactive walls with enemies behind could make a seemingly harmless room jump alive with action and terror, though the story narrative elements nothing special by today's standards who've done this and done it better, the shooting gameplay is my least favorite, but the game had incredible atmosphere for its time, but of all the games I feel it doesn't hold up as well as the others. Doom 4 was great fun, it had that fast and fluid gameplay of the original games, yet it's not perfect, but man it is refleshingly fun. The gun gameplay is great, I like most the weapons.

But, I feel Doom 4 is where the original Doom was when it released. They need a sequel to that just gives us more more more. More maps, more enemy variety, maybe a new weapon or two. I liked Doom 4 for the most part, lots of good challenging fast paced violent gory combat, however I wasn't a fan of the boss fights, weren't bad but weren't great. I also feel you don't get that same kind of ambush environment of previous Doom games where the wall panels lift and it's like "oh shit!!" and then you have to fight your way out of I feel that post released they needed to focus more on SP DLC that expands the game and not MP content. If they'd had done that I'd of been all over SP DLC day one. The user created SP maps didn't do much for me either. Maybe I should check back into the game to see if anybody has made some good levels there. Nonetheless, I love the direction it's going. I like the idea of powers/perks, weapon upgrading, brutal executions, and berserk perk (maybe the most useless perk in previous games) is actually useful for once and you tear enemies limb from limb (literally). The chainsaw is a lot more useful and has more purpose. I like how it didn't overdo story and focused on the gameplay, the story is a bit simple as it needed to be, but what they had was good I kind of wish they had more.

So, I'll rank them:

Doom 2 > Doom 4 > Doom 1 > Doom 3

I'm hoping Doom 5 is to Doom 4 what Doom 2 was to Doom 1, I hope it's Doom 4 with more focus on SP development, bigger better levels, more enemy variety, challenging situations. More gore, more brutal executions. More opportunity for utter carnage. Maybe some co-op MP.

I liked the Doom reboot since it felt very much like Doom 1 and 2. Since it's new, i give it the vote, and the MP is like Quake 3 arena in many ways which for me is an enjoyable fast paced run and gun.

Influence wise it goes to Doom. But the reboot wins both graphically and gameplay wise. It's such a good fps.

I haven't played 3 yet, but I've heard it called a fantastic game, but not really a doom game.

I loved the original Doom. Loved it. From shareware to full game whenever I played it it had something special that other FPS' could not compete with. Even games that came along later like Heretic just couldn't match it.

If you judge a game by the impact it had on its day, it wins. It simply does. It came along and kickstarted a whole genre that dominated gaming for a long time. (Wasn't the first FPS, but it was the game that kicked them into the stratosphere).

However, the new Doom is, today, better. It's an evolution. Doom 1 has dated, as it was bound to. It s a 2D plane with no vertical aim. Some of it drags. The graphics are, whilst not the mess many early 3D games are, are frequently dull. It's still playable, but the new one is the better game in the here and now.

Doom reboot was perfect for today. It took a game that shook up a genre and shook up the genre once again. A game that kicks your arse if you dont kick its arse, just like Doom should be.

So for me, Doom Reboot> Doom 1 and 2 (same engine, same thrill)> Doom 3.

Now make Quake.

Surprised by amount of love for DOOM 3. The original was a mortifying and evil experience. Don't know if the sequels could ever have the same impact.

This is pretty much just a discussion between level design in Doom and Doom II: Hell on Earth. Doom 3 is a pacing-based horror game that doesn't do horror all that well and Doom 2016 is just a faithful and wonderful homage to the originals in modern clothing.

Doom has a lot of "classic" levels, but Doom II had a whole lot more creative ones, with incredibly unique designs.

If Final Doom is included with Doom II (which it technically should be, because it was released as a standalone package, despite being what was essentially another expansion in line with Master Levels) then it's not even a competition. The Plutonia Experiment is the pinnacle of official Doom level design. It is, by far, what I would imagine a perfect Doom game to be. It's ridiculously hard (I'm Too Young To Die is rough for me, someone who can beat Hell On Earth on Ultra Violence) and outstandingly rewarding.

If we come down to it, for me it's as follows:

Doom II: Hell on Earth (+Master Levels and Final Doom) >>> Doom (+Ultimate) >>> Doom (2016) >>> Doom 3: Resurrection of Evil >>> Doom 3

I loved them all and been a Doom fan almost all my life (22 years of 30 to be exact, since 1994), so this is a near and dear franchise for me.

DOOM 2 (Final Doom) was a genre defining game.

Reboot Doom is also a must buy game, easily one of the best FPS games of the last decade.

Ultimate Doom by a long shot if we're throwing in the sheer amount of mods you have at your disposal.

Doom 4 if we're strictly talking vanilla release.

2 also has some noteworthy stretches of real questionable level design. Not like Doom 1 didn't have some issues, but it's a lot tighter and more snug, because Romero is a beast. Patterson and Amiercan Mcgee had some neat ideas, but they also had sequences that were more tedious than engaging.

DOOM 1 was influental as hell, but DOOM (Reboot) wins for me because in the era it released.

In an era full of Battlefields, Call of dooty, Medal of Honors, Ghost Recons, ect all shooters have become very stale and similar.

DOOM 4 was scrapped because it contained all those elements, and went back to the OG roots that shooters were known for, also it's fucking metal.

You can't overemphasize how much of step up the original Doom was for the genre and industry, so it gets my vote. But a close second is the reboot, which embodies almost everything you could want out of a SP FPS experience (the MP leaves a lot to be desired, otherwise I'd be tempted to give it the nod - the loadout system doesn't jive with my tastes for the type of shooter Doom strives to be).

From a purely gaming point of view, I'm attracted more to Doom 4.

Doom 4 > Doom 2 > Doom 1 > Doom 3

Make no mistake. I still like Doom 3.

Not fair of me to answer since I've only really ever played the reboot (just beat it for the first time about 10 minutes ago, definitely a top 10 game of the gen so far if not top 5).

I'm looking forward to getting Doom 3 BFG edition since it's BC on Xbox One, and that game has 1 2 and 3 on it.

So these screenshots were legit after all. Looks like success of Hard Reset and Serious Sam 3 on Steam changed their minds in 2011, props where props are due.

That's really fucking hard to choose, but... DOOM 2.

I love them all. Even Rage was good, but too short.

Edit: I just made DOOM 2 tied with DOOM 3 with my vote. That's not right..

For me it was DOOM 2016. It's one of the best games I've played these past years. And the shooting just feels so visceral and good, as a FPS it succeeds on every level.

Never enjoyed Doom 3 much, and DOOM 1, though I did play it, I was more into Wolfenstein, Duke 3D, Quake and then later on Half Life.

I look at Doom 1/2/Final as pretty much one long game. And I pick that.

Shame the new one had that arena like level design.

My first Doom game was Doom 3 and I love it, simply love it when I play that awesome FPS game on Xbox many years ago buuuuut, Doom 2016 was so fucking amazing on PC, I fell in love with it but if I gotta pick one of them, it's Doom 2016 despite I also enjoy Doom 3.

Voted: Doom Reboot (2016)

Doom (reboot) I love how the brought back Doom 2 monsters and weapons, yet in great modern graphics, when in battle they bring Doom 3 soundstrack.

Upgrades - because everyone loves it, fast movement just like in Doom 2, they really brought every great aspect from previous games, solid multiplayer as well compared to the 3rd.

Don't forget that this game can run at 200fps, or 60fps at 4K if you have the PC that can do it of course :P

Doom 3 + Absolute HD Mod was my favorite by far.

Too many wave battles in the new one took a bit away from the game. But it captures the feel of a running rampage nicely.
