    This joke alone would send the Twitter Twats into a triggered induced comatose.

    Twitter is the attempt to somehow filter the public pisshole that is the internet using the brilliant methods and wisdom of college students.

    Having grown up with the original doom games (doom 2 for windows 98 was one of the first games I ever owned as a 6 year old child) doom eternal is fucking amazing and is probably the best doom game to date if we're talking pure gameplay.

    You hardly even knew how to run Doom mods so I doubt simply playing Doom games when you were little is a qualifier for the following statement.

    I do like how efficient the game is with needing to use every tool to get by in Eternal but at some point having to chainsaw some demons every five seconds for some ammo because I only hold a couple of shells gets old quick. Not to mention the lack of love for the modding community that kept those old Doomer's hearts going, they even got rid of the snapmap.

    That's because mods aren't the actual game and are in no way a point towards the actual product that was sold to you.

    Once you install a mod you haven't made a game better you've changed it into something else.

    Speaking of the new DOOM games, I like how Eternal presents the "lore" but I think people reading into it heavily are sort of missing the point. It's so jargon-heavy and context light that the vibe I got from Eternal was the same as when I was a kid picking up a comic book series midway through a story arc. The player is kind of an outsider randomly jumping into this pulpy as fuck storyline.

    Bear tastes like soap (='s bad).
    Whiskey is only good if it's mixed.
    Vodka is what you get if you suck at making alcohol and your geography has nothing interesting growing in it that can be fermented.

    I hate the subverting exceptions trope. Done well and you can add an interesting twist to the story. Done wrong and you just make the audience angry. It has also been done to death now in entertainment and I will consider it a welcome change if writers stop doing this for a while.

    I can very much understand your frustration. I've been having my expectations subverted for a long time now. At this point I am really inclined in mind to not have expectations.

    It feels like a natural result of massively popular media being a creative ouroboros unable to break from its own limitations. Problem is those same people with the same mindset of those who made the wheel trying to break it isn't going to work. Or at least, it's not a given.

    Marvel is one of the most bog-standard industry product series of movie history but Infinity War managed to actually pull off a twist that was actually good. But then for that you also get Last Jedi.

    I actually used to like whiskey, but after a bad dry heave hangover I got from some Rye I have a slight fear response when I smell, or taste it now.

    A Sneaky Pete is still pretty good though.

    I'm the same way with Mojitos but you can't let personal failings bar the path for quality son

    The original rocky subverts your expectations when rocky ultimately loses. But the subverting the expectations isn't what makes that move great. It happens to be one of the greatest movies of all time all by itself.

    The star wars prequels are good and RLM and co. are just a bunch of old faggots who couldn't hack it in film school so they shoot out tepid takes in hopes of being popular, shockingly appealing to the majority opinion gets you popular. Attack of the Clones is the only 'bad' Lucas star wars film. Plinkett reviews are all long, drawn out, bereft of humor "lol I got a tied up hooker in my house, I'm a mess", and are intentionally retarded.



    George Lucas will laugh in luxury on his RLM skull throne long after they've all killed themselves from their nihilistic depression and fade into obscurity while high-fiving Roger Ebert.

    No, the prequels suck too man. You can hate RLM all you want and pretend that only AotC sucks but the other two aren't good either. Hell, Return of the Jedi isn't that great either, it shouldn't be in the same holding as A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back.

    I like Star Wars but I'm not going to pretend most of the films are great.
