they're different types of games. I'm getting classic, resurrection doesn't appeal to me. And not that I care, but other people do, this should prob be in the general games and discussions thread. The flamers should arrive shortly

You forgot the point to get both! So I didn't vote.
If you like both genres, on-rails shooter and fps, you should get both I think.

I don't really wanna get both because chances are they will both be $10 and that'll leave me with like 4 left on my iTunes account. Plus they are obviously similar games even though in classic you will be able to free roam.

Get both , that's my vote.

I already bought DR, and it's really good.

I actually think they'll be quite different. I also have a feeling Classic will come out at $4.99 or whatever Wolfenstein 3D came out as. DOOM Resurrection is a pretty different (although great) experience from DOOM Classic (at least the classic versions I've played).

Yeah I'm thinking it will be at 4.99 also. Maybe 5.99. I don't think they would charge the same price as resurrection for a port. John Carmack is cooler than that.

I'd still get Doom Resurrection, at first i didn't really like the idea of it being on rails, i thought it would blow, but having played it now it's freaking good fun. The price is a little hefty though, but the game is quality, the videos i dont think do it enough justice. There's plenty of blood and they've included the double barrel shotgun, oh its nice. I like the controls, they work well and are smooth as can be (and allow for calibration). I'm with robot, get both.

Wait for Doom Classic, especially if you're an early fan (for the sake of nostalgia).

DC's price will likely be quite lower than Resurrection too. And let's not forget the Doom 2, Ultimate Doom, and Final Doom DLC!
