After the SNES I became more aligned with the PlayStation. I dabbled with the Wii but essentially eschewed Nintendo. I've become increasingly concerned about the direction of games, especially with the mentality that games are now regarded as services and consumers are therefore cash cows, ripe for milking. I started looking at back catalogues of games and took a gamble with a Switch. The one thing that I had forgotten, but thankfully found again, is that Nintendo is all about fun, especially with it's own intellectual property like Super Mario. I've been too damned serious about games for too long, and even more so about collecting PlayStation trophies. This game is fun. Lots of fun. Lots of secrets and lots of collectibles and not a single loot box or micro-transaction to ruin it. My entire family are playing this now.

Very cool game and all in all good graphics and if you played the old DOOM on PC the this is the game that takes the cake and if you are looking for a challenge then DOOM Eternal is the game to play and a lot of new Demons are added which makes it more fun and challenging from the Caco Demon to the Arachnitron to the old Imp which is some of the hardest thing to kill.
