Glad to see everyone loves Doom. Deserves every bit of praise it gets and hopefully some GOTY attention.

@trilogy: Play the game before saying that. They work amazingly well into the fabric and feel of the game and it only gets better as a mechanic as you progress.

Tell that to Jeff who echoed my concern and who has played the game.

He's only like 2 hours into it. I said it gets better as you progress, which it does.

@discospawn: I beat the game and I can't think of any heavy platforming at all.

So after more reviews are now in this is the only straight up negative one out of 40 so far. Gamespot being the second worst with a 6/10. Very divisive game, though since Jeff didn't like Last of Us I'm just not sure he's all that into TPS linear story-driven games.

Genuinely stunned at the reviews so far. I thought Remedy was a sure thing but this is already the worst received game they've ever made.

Dan seemed to be the most gung-ho about VR, so hearing his comments on the Rift here are really revealing.

It was kind of ridiculous, especially Dan's part of the discussion. For years now the gaming press has been gushing about VR to an audience that largely had no access to it. And now they've collectively arrived at a big 'meh' when those demos and prototypes are actually somewhat finished and available. I don't know what that tells me. To not listen to anymore demo experiences? They are all so experienced with that stuff, they are usually better at putting things into perspective.

Always take things said by the press with a grain of salt and never buy into the hyped until you have had a hands on with the product in question.

Nah, I kinda come to GB because they are veterans and can usually look past the PR layer, I trust their impressions. It's just the take on VR over the last years that has me a little baffled.

I think they were all expecting better games, plain and simple. The tech demo and minigames over the years were cool novelties and had a lot of unrealized potential which has remained just as unrealized now that the thing is actually out. The Rift doesn't have single killer app to it's name and the Vive probably won't either, and even though roomscale + motion controllers add a lot to the experience it still isn't enough for 90% of even established gamers to drop the absurd asking price. People weren't just joking when they said Half-Life 3 needs to be a VR compatible title, the possibility of this all being a flop is still real (if unlikely) but a megaton like that would make a ton of sales. We'll see where everything stands come Christmas time and all 3 are out in the wild.

Seems like everyone came to their senses with VR, though I'm curious to see the Vive coverage. I sort of echo Dan's feelings about it in that it's cool right now but I'm definitely waiting till Gen 2 or even later until there's some real killer app for the thing and the price becomes reasonable.
