Re: anyone here playing doom?

doom 2016 aka doom 4:

i get 60fps on an alienware X51 R3, with 8Gb RAM, nvidia 2GB 960 graphics, i5 processor, using high, not ultra settings, at 1080p

for ultra, it needs a 4GB or better graphic cards for the textures

 excellent game- as with most PC games you can google tweak guides for customising the graphics options

 or it that;s a hassle get a PS4 Smiley Happy

for the original doom 1, doom2, we played those to death on a sony playstation  into a TV + what passed for surround sound in the day - so you could hear the rockets swish down the room

 Ahh,  +1 for the Hobbit and 3D Ant Attack on the Spectrum.!!  

Loved the original Doom 1 & 2 and some of the modded WAD files.  As for the new version, don't know if I'll ever play it ....

Re: anyone here playing doom?

Re: anyone here playing doom?

Played almost all the doom's up to the most recent which has been Doom 2016. 

Doom 3 was actually my introduction to the franchise, I loved it and when I got my hands on the classic versions I loved them even more. I'm thankfull that the 2016 version had stayed true to the classic roots with its own little twists that make it a constantly enjoyable experience.
