I know some of you have finished Eternal by now, so which of the two modern DOOM games is your favorite? I am about 4 hours in and, at this point, my pick is the 2016 version. That game got its hooks in me fast and deep. Loved it from the start. Eternal hasn't really clicked for me yet. I am not a fan of the platforming and the story and characters just aren't gelling like they did in '16. Still, I haven't finished Eternal so my opinion may change. Rip and tear, until it is done!

2016, no doubt.

I’m glad to have another Doom game, but Eternal (aka 2016 ver. 2) just isn’t wowing me. And so far, the maps have been unimpressive.

Haven't played it yet but from what I've seen I don't think I'll enjoy it as much, mainly because of the plot... Let me explain.

The devs want to expand on the DOOM universe but keep the story unintrusive like 2016. I don't believe they can do both. What will happen is that either A) people who are interested in the story and lore will become frustrated by its minimalistic telling, or B) people who say they don't care about story will be frustrated by the cutscenes and gibberish.

The reason why DOOM 2016's plot worked so well (even for those who claim to not care about it) was because it had a very simple one: UAC are funneling energy from hell, they become corrupted, and all hell breaks lose. You, the DOOM Slayer, kill everything and shut down the portal. That was more or less the gist of it. Even if you had a passive interest in the story you would still be able to understand what was going on. However, I'm not sure if that will still be the case for DOOM Eternal. With different dimensions, factions, and things happening off-screen (like how DOOM Slayer got a space station) I imagine many will be confused and/or disappointed.

Seems like this going to be a halo vs halo 2 situation

Haven’t finished Eternal yet. I consider Doom 16 one of the best FPS of all time. Eternal is shaping up to rival it. Not sold on the story elements but the series has always been about the gameplay.

I've played about 4 hours of Eternal so far and it's already better than 2016. 2016 is fantastic but this game is even better. I've also been enjoying the story and lore personally.

Idk how you can say the maps aren't great the first two lvls alone are miles better than 2016's.
