    I don't know why I haven't gotten into these games. From a distance I see them and just think "meh, I want something with a story." but when I'm blankly starting at my game collection deciding what to play, I feel like Doom would be a perfect drop in and drop out experience to just touch on every now and again.

      The 2016 Doom game is excellent. I put off playing it for a long time too, but I ended up enjoying it so much that I'm strongly considering buying Eternal at full price on release, and I practically never buy full-price games.

      If you don't already own it, there's a good price for it in Fanatical's spring sale right now: https://www.fanatical.com/en/game/doom

      And yeah, it's pretty much ideal for when I just want to play something right now. There's a value to something you can drop in and out of quickly, to get that quick fix in. I love story-based games and other games that require some initial investment to get into the groove and the flow. But the downside is that, sometimes, I just need something I can jump into quickly and have full access and undestanding with immediately.

      I wrote something up about Doom 2016 the last time I played it. There's a visceral thrill to playing this game due to its simplicity, it's worth checking out for sure.

        I really wish more games had something built-in where-- if the player hadn't played in ~2 weeks or so-- they'd give you a quick controls refresher and a previously, on cutscene to bring you back up to speed. Witcher, Telltale Games, and Alan Wake were on the right track with that concept.

      I frankly very much enjoy games which allow this kind of play style because I often don't find myself with the amount of time to game as I once had. Something with a low barrier of entry which can be played for a short period of time in case I have to leave and do something is perfect for my current life.

      I've been replaying Doom 2016 recently and it honestly still holds up, it's just such a nice and polished experience. The only reason I would not recommend it is if somebody specifically didn't enjoy adrenaline rushes and the guilty pleasures of ultra-violence.

    I am a huge fan. DOOM 2016 is still a severely under rated masterpiece. The campaign is huge and has lots of secrets. The online multiplayer is some of the best there is ( when the servers are doing good). Plus Mick Gordon working on the soundtrack takes the game to a higher level. I think DOOM Eternal could go down as the best FPS we’ve ever had.
