I wouldn't be hostile to someone for saying that, but I find it incomprehensible that someone who likes/loves 2016 dislikes/hates eternal

Not necessarily hatred or hostility, but mostly a big ol' groan at people dismissing Eternal after playing it for 10 minutes, complaining about it for not being "just more Doom 2016" and dropping it. There's a lot of valid critisim to be had against the title, but most of what is propegated here doesn't hold up if you get better or play further in. The game also doesn't give the best first impressions with its first stage imo. Give the game some time.

Was gonna say this. Also thinly veined puritan bias against the newer modern implementations like the dash system.
Eternal has its issues, but the loud pro-2016 guys make it a habit to ignore even the upgrades eternal brought to the franchise.
Oh, and there's that t.wat upper echelon gamers who had an objectively bad review. Dude draws in many of the heavy "anti-sjw" crowd and dealing with those ones and their opposites is an extra headache.

while there's still a lot of folks bein jerks about it, this board is weirdly, uh. more positive than most others. the ultra-violent games seem to breed more friendly and respectful discussion in terms of ratio to trash stuff than the kid-friendly stuff. seriously. don't go to the animal crossing boards. those guys have filthy ****ing mouths. there's still a lot of bad apples in any large community like this, tho, so it might be best not to engage too heavily and talk about the stuff you're more passionate about.

i do think that eternal is... very much not content in presenting "Doom 2016 2," but instead wanted to try a whole bunch of new stuff, so i think a lot of folks hoping for a more iterative sequel are naturally gonna be disappointed. a lot of franchises have been going through fairly dramatic changes these past few years, and there's always gonna be folks irate that the sequels aren't as familiar and immediately grokkable as their predecessors.

but for the most part, it seems like a bunch of people genuinely enjoy the shake-up to the formula, myself included. there's a lot of neat stuff, and i think my favorite thing is that it doesn't make 2016's entry feel redundant; it's more than different enough that i'm still kinda excited to go back to it later, as i've done a number of times over the years.
sometimes a video game is bad or disappointing or deeply flawed, and that's okay
just play something else that you find fun

Because this game is new and most people here just spent $60 on it, so they get super defensive about it. Give it a few months... attitudes will change.

Because many gamers are imbecile manchildren, and other people's tastes manage to anger their sub-par intellects.

Because people just invested full price into Doom Eternal, and hate even the possibility that they wasted their money. People avoid buyers remorse as much as possible, even going into denial.

Children getting upset because of legit criticisms is the epitome of pathetic.

A trend I've been noticing, why so much hatred towards people who say they prefer 2016 over eternal?

Because most of the are not right in the head. What they say makes no sense or is often just CAPSLOCK.

If you didn’t want a platform shooter where you constantly use a chainsaw on zombies to get more shells for your super shotgun to shoot demons in the face with, why’d you buy DOOM Eternal?

To be honest I was unpleasantly surprised by the amount of toxicity I saw in the topic titled "I finally understand all the hate now". The people complaining about not liking certain aspects of the game (I'm one of them) are met with a barrage of insults.

As kids we love the heroes. As adults we understand the villains.
