The ending of doom64 failed though, it made it so no other doom game (Following that story line) could ever be made.
I dunno, they could always make one where the Doomguy changes his mind and you haveta fight your way out lol. Although even if they made everything else identical, if you knew that was the story it'd have a totally different feel to it. Seriously, on the other hand, you can always make alternative games, ie D3 which tell a different story, pretending the original didn't happen. Or filler, like a game based on how the D64 Doomguy stops a resurrection in Hell or something. I just did these off the top of my head, I'm sure if you thought about it you could come up with good storylines that follow D64.
Thought this thread might make an interesting read after some posts.
For me, I'd like to see a complete mod based on the doom novels (Look in my sig). If you have read them, you'd know how great it would be. Would be alot of work though, and would need models of a female marine (Arlene Sanders) and probably a new model for the doom marine (Flynn Taggart). (Wonder what "Clyde" would look like?)
Hell, once I learn how to make cut scenes and import models (If I still have enough interest in the game by then) I might attempt a map or two from the books.
So, what would you like to see in a mod?
On topic, if you wanted to make em, I don't think you'd need to change the male model. Why can't the D3 Doomguy be Fly? No reason really. And if you think the novels are that good even though they're out in left field for doom, why don't u just make the chaingun commando the Clyde? It's about as close to the original chaingunner as the books are to the original doom.
Off topic, while I think they might make interesting levels, the novels weren't that "great". They completely altered the story. Just cause the guys who wrote em included some of the original levels almost word for word, ie E1M8, doesn't make them a great adaptation. On top of that if you read really well, there's little inferences that make Taggart seem like a pussy. If you read even better, you can tell they were written by foreigners. I think somebody should write a real Doom novel. But that's just my opinion. Please don't go off into a 9 page tirade if I insulted your favorite books ever written or something.
I would simply like to see the original Doom games drawn up on the new engine, with that being the ONLY change. Same weapons, monsters, everything. No jumping etc.
