      Two entirely different people made these games what are you talking about. David helps the dev of Gloomwood because the main dev is a moron who runs to twitter every time someone says something mean on the steam forum or leaves a review that doesn't suck his dick.
      And David almost made several games post Dusk. Good to see people still make threads talking out their ass about shit though

    I suppose you may be right if you define 'boomer shooters' as being exclusively modern releases which aim to recreate the retro feeling (which they all fail miserably at btw). Including the original famous shooters, DUSK simply does not compare. None of them do.

    Retro shooters feel really "impotent" for lack of a better word, compared to the classic games they mimic. Like why do so many of them do the same "assault rifle/shotgun/rocket launcher" thing going on when back in the days you had shit like the shock rifle or the shrink ray or the cerebral bore. Hell even in something like quake that does do that same weapon dynamic the simple act of shooting dudes is more satisfying than modern retro games.

      the genre is horribly overcrowded and full of unoriginal cash grabs. DUSK isn't that special compared to most of them but it was the first popular one so it gets a pass. I can't be bothered to play stuff like Hedon, HROT, or Wrath when there's an endless supply of Doom and Quake maps/mods that are better in most ways.
      Boltgun was good. It's worth playing if you really like Warhammer stuff. Ultrakill is great. It does actually new things with its gameplay and has great music. I'd say the top 5% of these games are worth your time.

      >Squirrel Stapler, Chop Goblins
      Aren't those literal meme games?

      yep. Squirrel Stapler was made in less than a week and is mostly reaction-bait just like Iron Lung. Chop Goblins is a self-parody. Gloomwood has been in development for WAY too long and the devs need to just hire some Thief mappers to wrap that shit up. You don't release a horror game into early access, you FINISH the damn thing and then sell it. I can't get immersed in a game if I have to wait 6+ months between levels.

      Almost every single FPS in the 90s used the "assault rifle/shotgun/rocket launcher thing," as you put it. It's a staple created with Doom (Chaingun/Shotgun/Rocket Launcher).

        It's just boring, there are so many other ways to have guns that aren't 1:1 with A shotgun or a SMG. Thats why I enjoyed Amid Evil and Turok and even Painkiller. They at least try to throw in some wacky "guns" I want more games with guns that shoot electric shuriken and wooden stakes and less games with shotgun and sawed off shotgun

          Very few FPS don't use the standard set by Doom. For example, Hexen and Amid Evil. 90% of FPS use said standard, even Turok.

          >Turok 1
          Assault Rifle/Minigun, Shotgun/Autoshotgun, Quad Rocket Launcher

                Not sure what about that you thought was a joke. The games listed don't follow the "assault rifle/shotgun/rocket launcher" standard.

                yes they do. wolf3d is the closest to not just because it only has pistol/smg/chaingun, but then ports added a rocket launcher. and rtcw is only missing a shotgun. hexen and amid evil is laughable to even suggest. are you implying because you shoot mini planets its not a rocket launcher? or that its magic from a staff so its not a shotgun?

                the argument was literally "even turok with its tons of frivolous weapons counts as using the standard." i want to see these alleged games that dont use the standard.

        Doom was the first, and expanded on Wolfenstein's roster of straight upgrades. Later shooters expanded upon Doom's arsenal. But so many of the throwback shooters don't bother to be any more ambitious than games from the 90s.

    when you finally learn how to just wreck an entire room of cultists it feels so insanely rewarding, like an action movie or first-person Max Payne

    So David isn't actually an FPS dev, he used to make tiny low poly indie horror games, but he is also an FPS fan and had many ideas which eventually resulted in Dusk.

    And while I think gameplay-wise Dusk is satisfying, but pretty basic, it's the sudden bursts of atmosphere in a silly game where you hup hup hup around and shoot scarecrows with shotguns that kept me playing.

    He mostly exhausted his FPS ideas with Dusk, which is why he didn't immediately make a sequel.
