I have a complicated relationship with Doom Eternal.
In Episode 079 of WDGRPodcast, I spoke at length about the game, and listeners may notice that I was constantly conflicted – for everything it did that I loved, it did something I hated. It’s this duality and confusion that frustrates me to this day.
When Doom Eternal is good, it is great. It is unspeakably amazing. You feel like a complete badass. You use the biggest guns. You throw the strongest punches. You jump the highest jumps. And Hell is so scared of you that they send every demon possible at you every chance they get.
When Doom Eternal is bad, it is infuriating. The word frustrating does not do it justice. The game made me so angry on so many occasions that by the end I was beating it out of spite. I wanted to literally say to the game “Fuck you!” just like the Doom Slayer says to every Imp he stomps on.
