The 4 R's: Re-releases, Remasters, Remakes and Reboots
The gaming industry is one of many that use the deep-rooted nostalgia of consumers to resell them something tied to their own fond memories of times past, or at the very least sell to people who missed out on something special the first time around. The various forms of these releases and how closely they resemble the original title that inspired them has been a constant source of confusion and frustration among gamers for a few decades now.We’ve discussed this topic once before in an article, but as OP recruit numerous aspiring writers and journalists, opinions don’t always line up.

How ‘Quake’ Helped Define the Gaming Industry
Before Counterstrike, Unreal Tournament, and League of Legends, we had Quake—a first-person shooter game in 1996 that inspired many of the best titles in modern gaming. In fact, when IGN interviewed creative director Tim Willits during Quake’s anniversary in 2015, he commented, “If you look at games today, and if you look at the shape of the video game industry, Quake was actually more influential than Doom was.” And Doom introduced a lot of new things, from mod scenes and pseudo-3D graphics, to AI and action multiplayer. To say that another game is more superior—and one that came after Doom, at
Rhyfel's Comprehensive List of Life Changing Games
Don't worry this is not the typical "Top 100" list. Think of it more like a suggestion list of awesome games more than anything, this is a list of some of the games I have played over the many years, which I believe are detrimental to a thorough experience of what gaming truly has to offer. It includes titles from nearly every genre that have all provided gamers with unique experiences unparalleled at the time or since.These are not all the games I played, these are not all the necessary games either as I am sure I missed plenty. But these

A few more games inspired by metal that I think are worth mentioning (I'll try to keep this up to date with any suggestions)

Rock God Tycoon - Essentially a Rock Band simulator.
Metal Tales: Fury Of The Guitar Gods - Top-down twin-stick arcade shooter made by metalheads for metalheads.
Painkiller: Hell & Damnation - 90s style first-person shooter with a metal soundtrack and gothic style
BDSM: Big Drunk Satanic Massacre - You play as Satan's son in a twin-stick shooter with a metal soundtrack and nude demons.
Slain: Back From Hell - A heavy metal inspired arcade combat and puzzle platformer.
Valfaris - Indirect sequel to Slain, with tighter controls, prettier graphics and heavier soundtrack,
Butcher - Known by some as the 2D DOOM or by me as Soldat with a heavy metal skin.
Charlie Murder - Control a punk rock band in a beat 'em up RPG set in the zombie apocalypse!
Death Goat - If DOOM was a twin-stick shooter and allowed you to play an a wheelchair bound OAP.

me gustan estas clases de juegos esta bueno el articuloJune 08, 2020
I mean I guess that's all the original Doom games ever were? Only with even less story!
But I know what you mean about the repetitiveness of the more modern Doom games, I think the fact they're so intense and demanding means you actually get mentally exhausted after just a few hours, I completed the original Doom just a few weeks ago and I didn't get that same fatigue. I pre-ordered Eternal and I still haven't completed it! But I tend to take my time with games and I'm perfectly okay with taking up to a few years to complete a game, so long as I get there eventually.
With Doom and Wolfenstein thriving with modern releases, I think I'd really like to see a new take on the Quake series.May 06, 2020
Not really a fan of the new Doom games ,they seem a bit repetitive ,go here ,shoot these ,go there ,shoot these though might just be me getting old.
I prefer story driven games these days.April 30, 2020
