One Man Army: Doomguy counts as 1 HQ and 2 Troops.
>>45226475 >>45226584 the DOOM shotgun is probably the only long ranged shotgun in video games by far, you could kill demons halfway across the map with it without any real difficulty to it. Shotguns in DOOM were weird.
>>45226816 But, but, DOOM did codify a lot of those tropes. It set a bunch of standards of what to expect in a FPS for the better part of a decade before the FPS was even a genre of its own, everything after its release was just called a DOOM clone. Maybe the change came in when Half-Life showed up in 1998 and changed the genre again and shotguns in that game were less effective at a distance.
>>45227121 Strangely enough also made by Id Software. Either way Wolfenstein 3D didn't include multiplayer which has become a staple for practically any fps nowadays is expected to have. Also, it only had a knife,pistol, machine gun, and chaingun that DOOM expanded on with more guns that have become basics in most fps's today as well. Look, I'm not saying DOOM was the first fps, cause it's not, but it definitely left an impact upon its release.
>>45227505 Maybe, I mean it boils down to a corporation accidentally opening a portal to hell on the moons of Mars while experimenting with teleportation technology. I'd argue no since Hell is a pretty well defined place as the warp really isn't and seems to change pretty frequently.
>>45227121 Wolfenstein and Doom have a very awkward relationship. Since Wolfenstein is older, but Doom surpassed Wolfenstein in absolutely every aspect... Except possibly "Number of Nazis killed" Doom became the codifying ur-example of a FPS after it's release, to the point where the phrase "Doom Clone" was common parlance for FPS titles until, well, the Half-Life era. And it deserves every ounce of praise. Doom was a game that needed to exist
