I stumbled upon the following image by accident:
And it made me wonder something:
Which imp image do you like the most?
-The one from Doom 3, rendered with an engine 11 years newer than Doom 2's
-The one from Doom 2, in all its pixely glory
Personally I like the one from Doom 2 more, and here is why:
-blocky pixels to me have a more charming quality than triangular vertices, and the triangles in the Doom 3 model are pretty obvious
-the 256-color palette of Doom 2 is more attractive to me than the dark RGB colors of Doom 3
-the shape of the Doom 2 one actually looks better. Despite the blocky pixels, the head of the Doom 2 model looks rounder than that of the Doom 3 model
So, to me it seems that the 20 year old Doom/Doom 2 are more timeless and replayable than then 10 year old Doom 3. What do you think?
