Tom Chick's Shoot Club takes on DOOM 3

From Quarter to Three (SPOILERS)

Ouch. Don't read it if you even have the slightest favorable opinion of id and the game, or of Tom Chick. Chances are you won't have one of those after you finish it.

I loved that article.

Yawn. Next.

That was great, definitely some spoilers in there but it''s an enjoyable read as usual. Leaves me wondering if any of the hype will die down after a couple of weeks.

I don''t care if he''s making fun of my mom, a new Shoot Club is always welcome.

I was enjoying it but stopped when it started getting to the spoilers. The Bestbuy midnight sale is funny. I''d love to read it without all the spoilers.

In case anyone''s wondering what kind of spoilers there are: if you want to avoid them, don''t bother reading until you completed the game.

Oh yeah, anyone remember the last time a Chick review was debated here? I do!

Very good.

I like to think female shop assistants flirt with me too.

Chick is a great writer. Pity he''s so jaded.

Excellent. It reads well and should have a warm spot for the Cynic in all of us.

And he was right then. Painfully too right.

Bleh..

The game is fun.. period.

Trying to make it more or less than what it exactly is is pointless.

The hype is deserved.. not everyone is so embroiled in a determination not to have fun.

Are there flaws? sure.. theres never been a perfect game..but when a game is fun you look past the flaws.

Tom Chick is a joke...always has been and always will be. Classic example of trying to make the Video Game business out to be more than it is.

Dont even get me started on DX

Yeah, you''re right, trying to make it more or less than what it is is pointless.
In your case, that would be ""more"".

Guys, we''re not doing this again.

Don''t make me come back there. I will pull this car over and lock this thread so fast!

no.

Its a fun game...and I''m having fun.

trying to pyscho-analyis an Id game when they''ve basically created the FPS shooter genre and continue their tradition is pointless... They do what they do best.. great fantastic technology with a fun game.

Look I''m sorry you may not be having fun playing Doom 3..and I understand the need for Geek Chic street creed to tear down our gaming icons... I really do.

But..oh well.. sucks to be you.

I''m wondering when all Doom 3 threads will be shut down. A lot of people are just being stupid.

Come now, this is GWJ, not Kids With Issues.

The game is fun.. period.
Are there flaws? sure.

Does not compute, the hype makes it out to be the second coming of Christ. If it''s just a fun game, which I definitely think it is, then it can''t live up to the hype. Hype and ""good game"" aren''t the same thing, and Doom can be a pretty kickass game and still not live up to the hype, which was and is pretty astronomical.

Okay so you like Doom because it''s fun and think people should enjoy it as that, fine. If someone is looking for more than a derivitive shooter however, and they don''t have fun, you call them names? If you disagree with Chick, okay that''s fine. Frankly I don''t always agree with him, but there''s no reason to call him a joke just because he pissed in the Doom 3 love pool. If he doesn''t like Doom 3 and explains why, I don''t see how that makes him a joke.

Again, you enjoy Doom, okay. But why do you feel the need to put down people who don''t like it? Seriously, we''re bigger than that around here.

He''s a joke for more reasons that just pissing in the Doom 3 love pool..

Not putting anyone down.. again.. I feel sorry for people who are so jaded that they cannot seem to have fun anymore playing videogames which are all about fun. If people dont get what I''m saying then I''m sorry.. I try to make it obvious... if anyone feels like they''re being ""put down"" because I''m saying this well...perhaps there some other issues going on there.

Ok, this thread is locked up. So will any thread where we go from talking about games to talking about people having issues because of their response to games.

Seriously guys.
