In case you haven’t heard, recently screenshots surfaced that were allegedly from DOOM 4, accompanied by stories of troubled development for the game. You can read about it in full right here, but the gist is this: perhaps caught under the crushing weight of expectation, iD couldn’t agree on a direction to take the game, which eventually resulted in a complete reboot of their work on the game, scrapping three years of work. While the game is still in the works, nobody knows what the final product will be like.
The FPS genre has changed drastically even since DOOM 3; games like BioShock Infinite with its beautiful world and compelling story show us what the genre is capable of. Series creator John Carmack has been reported as telling his staff, “DOOM means two things: demons and shotguns.” That leaves the window of possibilities wide open. Since we don’t know anything about DOOM 4, we thought it would be fun to talk about what we want to see in the game.
