    There is that. Of course, I'd rather be spoiled for options more times a year than just the holiday season. Doom will probably be a good game to use as a break for Cyberpunk also. I actually play quite a few id games when I'm in the middle of big RPG-type stuff, because it's such a good contrast.

    I basically binge every game until I'm done with it and move onto the next one, not that you don't make a good point.

    We do still at least have Rick and Morty to look forward to in November o.o

    Yeah, I'm kind of all over the board depending on the game. Some I will play right through in every available, waking minute until it's done. Some I'll play straight through, but at a more relaxed pace. Some I'll play a little bit, then play something else, come back to it, etc. I play most id games the first way. Squeezing them into my schedule, and playing as much as possible until they're done.

    I wish I could do that. I play for 10 hours and get bored, usually. Unless the game really catches my attention then it's about 40-50 hours.

    I wish I could do that, if I don't focus on beating a game or at least getting a comfortable level of completion, I'll drop it and by the time I come back around I have completely forgot its nuances.

    Sadly KC Deliverance is sitting on that pile for me after 50 hours, I want to finish it but the combat is so nuanced and different I just keep dying.

    Want to hold your gun like it's 1994? Doom Eternal will let you, with Classic Weapon Pose in the options menu at launch (Doom 2016 added the option after launch)

    This thing is mesmerizing. Gameplay is asking for a DM component. Well, at least I am.

    The more I see of this the more I think that this is tied into the original games somehow instead of simply superseding them.

    On the 26th anniversary stream I posted in the Doom 64 thread they showed off a bunch of changes they made to the game since last we saw it, including extensive HUD customization. It's nice to know they took criticism to heart. Now if only they will bring back classic deathmatch for multiplayer.

    That's one reason I buy a lot less "AAA" games these days and a lot more Indies and play a lot more retro games. Doom is something I'll pay that much for. Cyberpunk, and maybe a few others as well. I used to buy just about anything that I knew would be half decent. Now I'm very picky about what I'll buy, because I want the FULL game, which means spending $80+ usually to get it. It's actually a good thing I don't have a lot more time on my hands anymore. :D
