Cool What franchise are you more interested in? Doom or Quake? - 04-03-2013, 18:23 | posts: 2,907 | Location: Tampa Bay, FL

I was just curious which franchise is the more popular one amongst the guru's here. For me, Quake wins by a long shot. Doom can be fun, but its very one dimensional and I've always enjoyed the more "industrial" setting of the Quake titles. Quake 2 was amazing and so was the unforgettable multi-player of Quake 3 Arena. I also felt Quake 4 was an all around great game that was a bit underrated! Quake Wars: Enemy Territory was a let down, but I am trying to forget that game ever happened.

With all of the talk about Doom 4, it makes me long for a Quake 5! So lets hear it, do you prefer the Doom or Quake games? What games were your favorites?

Doom.

The Quake series, I only like parts of it. And those parts being Quake 2 and 4, the only actual sequels in the series.
And since Quake 2 was originally supposed to be it's own game and not part of the Quake IP, I don't really consider it connected to Quake (which I think is boring as hell).

I wasn't a huge fan of Quake 1, it was ok, but a little weird with all the medieval stuff. I liked Quake 2 a lot.

I'm not sure what another Quake game would be like. That type of gameplay seems to have been left behind. I don't see them doing a "sandbox" type of thing.

Doom and Quake seem a little old school compared to what is out there now with Far Cry/Deus Ex/BioShock type gameplay that feature sandbox or RPG elements.

iD hasn't really done any new gameplay stuff in quite a while? I didn't try Rage, but the forum posts made it look pretty bad.

I haven't heard anything like that. Where did you read it wasn't originally supposed to be a Quake game?

^ well clearly it was very different than the original Quake, but I didn't know it was meant to be something else altogether. I just thought they were taking the franchise in a new direction. Luckily, it continued in that direction!

haha, no doubt. I think if Enemy Territory:Quake Wars never happened (and didn't bomb), there would be a much better chance of us seeing a sequel to Quake 4.

From what I remember Enemy Territory did really well on the PC. It was the consoles that got horrible reviews.

I want to see a sequel to Quake 1. Strogg aren't all that unique and the next gen consoles will probably have too many games which will be similar in setting.

Doom3 was my fav., I hope they'll continue with this smaller corridor style.


But overall I like both.


Maybe add a poll, both

DOOM for me... I always had great deal of respect for Quake as competitive arena shooter platform, but as a casual FPS gamer, it didn't have much personality for my personal liking.

Loved Doom1&2 and the original Quake. everything after that was meh for me. Quake was amazing in it's day. Hmm, if I had to pick one franchise though, I'd say I'd want to see a new Quake. Good single player like Q4 and some Quakey mp goodness.

Hated Doom 3.

Loved Quake 4.

Would love to see i.d focus on a Quake game. But given their track record the last few years, I have zero faith they'd do the franchise justice. Dated engines, dated gameplay, just a dated company that needs to disband.

I think you're getting confused with Brink, Quake wars was pretty popular and sold well on PC it was one of my favourite MP games for sometime from the moment I played in the beta
Hell I've not played a game since which actually focuses on teamwork

Personally I've always preferred Quake over Doom

idk, perhaps I am confusing its reception with that of the console port. Either way, it didn't rank anywhere amongst my favorites in the series and was more of a departure from it.

It is good to see so many Quake fans here though! For some reason I thought Doom would be the pull ahead winner, but so far that's not the case.

id have said they want to do a new Quake, and a new Wolfenstein title. They originally wanted to work on both internally, but have already handed Wolfenstein out to another studio.

There's always the possibility that a new Quake entry will be done the same.

Personally, I only want id to focus on one game right now. Doom. I really believe a big problem for them recently is simply overstretching themselves.
RAGE was their first internally developed, multiple platform release. And they still split the studio and started development on another major project.

Even if they wanted to make a new Doom, I think they should've waited until after RAGE was finished. They put the studios focus on it. Not split the team.
id's never handled two large projects at once, and with both being multi-platform releases... that requires a TON more work.

One game at a time. And right now, Doom.
A new Quake (in my mind only if it's part of the Quake 2 world) would be awesome. But, only after they are finished with Doom. Unless they hand development to another studio and simply produce it.

Sucks they can't have Raven Software make it. I'm gonna miss the Raven + id collaborations.

Don't get me wrong, I like Doom but I prefer Quake because of its fast pace

This is why I spent most of my time playing Half Life/Opposing force Deathmatch over say TFC/CS

I prefer Doom II over the first Doom.
Quake, I thought was boring. From the setting, combat... and the OMFG stupid "final fight" ending.

Quake 2 was the one that I loved. It felt like Doom II in a lot of ways, enemies and weapons. The hub styled level design... the music. Everything about it was awesome.
