Doom 3 BFG Edition Announced

Today legendary FPS developer id Software announced it's latest project: an HD remaster of Doom 3 titled BFG Edition. However this is more than a simple port; it is a collection of all the Dooms. That's right! Contents include remasters of Doom, Doom 2, Doom 3, Doom 3: Resurrection of Evil, as well as a brand-new, never released "Lost Mission" that will contain 7 bonus levels for Doom 3. Doom 3 BFG Edition will be available for the Xbox 360 and PS3. Date and price are TBA. 

Looks pretty awesome, but is this a hint towards an even more awesome Doom 4?

I'm excited for this collection. Doom 1 holds up pretty well as a FPS compared to GoldenEye and Perfect Dark.

I'm guessing theres still no frickin duck tape on mars.  Well that'll be a perfect game to play in the dark in a new house.

Doom 3 was pitch black corridor the game. To be honest, I don't see this receiving very well.

Looking forward to Doom 1 and 2. Doom 3 scared the shit outta me, was really difficult, and had annoying flashlight mechanics. According to DigitalTrends.com:

For anyone who played the original that was also mystified by the space marine’s inability to both shoot and hold a flashlight, the new version has a flashlight that handily hangs from your chest.

I Don't know how to feel about not having to hold the flashlight. I understand people hated not being able to see and shoot, but it added to the horror.

Make the mounted flashlight optional. Problem solved.

Well, I'm more happy about the old doom games, all be it I own them all, I think more people will hopefully get into them, as they're a higher quality (imho). And people might get into custom wads, and the skulltag/other multiplayer doom communities might see some people coming. And it sounds like they'll fix up the console versions, so good for them too. Every doomer should be proud.
