I'm gonna have to go with DOOM.

Even though both of the main characters in both the games were badasses, Doom was pretty much the first PC game I ever really played.

So, I'd have to go with Doom.

I'd say Duke Nukem. I loved Doom when I was a kid but for me DN was more entertaining.

doom is great...duke nukem is better

Both are excellent old school games, but Duke Nukem is better IMO.
I love the levels more in Duke.

lol, seems duke nukem is better, but more of the people who voted doom replied

Doom is the pioneer in FPS gaming... I give my respects to that game... however, Duke Nukem is more funny... entertaining... and just hellva fun! (not to mention tons of references!)

Duke all the way

Redneck Rampage is better than both DOOM and DUKE put together....but that isn't the question. I would pick Duke over Doom.

Doom, definitely. Duke had more entertaining weapons (the Shrinker is hilarious, especially in multiplayer), and better controls (you can actually look up).

What Doom had was a more engaging "storyline." With Duke, I just feel like I'm completing maps. In Doom, even way back then, I felt like it was part of a narrative.

Short answer, Doom > Duke, but Duke is a great game in its own right.

I've gotta go with the Duke on this one. I'm sorry but the fact that he rips off a bosses head, squats on his neck, takes a crap, and reads a newspaper (all while whistling the duke theme) is just too much for Doom to overcome.

Duke for sure. Doom felt like I was just finishing levels, still a great game though ;)

Definately Duke. Especially since it referenced DOOM in one of its levels.

Totally Nukem 3D, i really loved this game more than life itself :D

I only choose DOOM because it was my childhood game, but that's my opinion! Duke rocks aslo!

10-22-2010, 02:09 AM
Duke for me. Both are amazing games but the level design is more interesting in Duke and it was hilarious to me as a kid back in the day.

doom has the better story and aiming is also easier, so definetely doom. Duke has better level design though...

01-16-2011, 09:19 PM
wow difficult choice, both great games but it has to be duke due to the level design and humour

I really like Duke Nukem alot better. Duke is just funny to listen to, the levels are hilarious and pretty elaborate, and the music is awesome. I just can't get on board with Doom at all, probably because of my experience with Doom 3. My friends recommended it to me and I didn't enjoy it. I felt like I was walking down a dark hallway for 6 hours just shooting creatures that hadn't really even came close to scaring me. I get kind of the same vibe with Doom but it's not as bad with the 64 bit graphics.

The Duke for me but I hope DOOM 4 wil come soon

Doom is fun and a classic, but Duke, the character by itself made the game a lot funnier. I can't wait for Duke Forever, as i imagine how funny its gonna be with all the possibility or todays engine. Just the trailer is already awesome !!! But back to Duke 3d, well Doom is a little older, less possibility of course, but even for the time Duke may had a low graphic aspect when it came to monsters, like if you compare with Goldeneye it was not on the same level, but i don't know if that was that or else but the game offered so much possibility or funny things to do. Anyway, even today Duke is still fun to play, and im so glad i can play it on the 360, as i can't stand the n64 controller anymore for shooters(1 joytsick only)

I think both are great, but the atmosphere of the two games is totally different. I prefer Duke - the character makes the game a lot more funny. There are no funny moments in DOOM, imo.

04-20-2011, 01:58 AM
both are great games but Duke is better

05-02-2011, 07:01 PM
Doom hands down for me. I was 13 when Doom came out and never got into Duke back then. I'm playing Duke now and enjoy it and all but in the end I still like Doom the best.

Both of them are awesome games but I'm going to have to go with Doom on this one.

07-20-2011, 09:34 PM
Both are fantastic games, but I'd give the edge to Duke.

Duke looks better and in my opinion is way more fun . Love doom, but hail to the king baby!
