Doom's Doom

I was driving down a street today, when I happened to catch a billboard's advertisement. The moment I saw it, however, my heart sank to the depths.

It was an advertisement for Doom: The Movie.

That's right! Doom, the bloodthirsty game where people open portals to Hell and somehow, one guy manages to save the planet of Mars. Now it's getting its own fucking movie.

This is the worst decision Id Software has ever made with the Doom series. I can tell you this right now:
IT WILL FLOP.

Like every video game movie before it, Doom will be an embarrassment to the VG community. Hell, Doom has one of the lousiest plots in game history. Good violence and graphics, yes, but plot stinks! There is no chance of Doom getting a good spot of popularity. Final Fantasy had the best chance of all VG movies to make it, and EVEN IT FAILED!

Id software was never good at telling a story. Look at Quake. Oh, a big monster is somewhere, and we need to get runes to kill it. Quake 3 Arena, the first multiplayer online game I ever played? Oh wow, we have to fight in an arena. Wowzers.

Id has its good stuff. Wolfenstein 3D is a classic, but Id needs to stay where they belong: In GAMING.

Uh, the Mortal Kombat movie wasn't bad. Then again, that might just be me...
