Duke Nukem kicks Doom ass. He is so much cooler! + Plus he can jump and crouch. Not to mention you can edit the controls to make them like Jk2!!! Mouse aiming! Doom goes way behind!!!

Actually, I prefer Doom. It's just a better atmosphere, I guess...

I'm still waiting for more votes, dammit!

I think doom edges the other out, especially doom 2 with multiplayer network going.

I always thought Doom had a faster pace, which is why I like it better.

Graphics were good enough at the time. The music was good and fast, plus the game was fast paced.

Doom- It was the best of its time. Also, Duke3D hasn't any source ports, which makes it worse. jDOOM is a good example of this. 3D Models, Improved Effects, Mouselook, etc. Also, iD is more known for its FPS's than Apogee- they only made 1 series. Also, Quake was released a year after D3D. True 3D Environments... well I won't go on. In conclusion...
DOOM IS BETTER.
NOTE: I will edit the last bit if its annoying.

I don't know. Both has bad features: blood, graphics (Doom), chicks, posters and insane puzzles (Duke).

DOOM95's (the official iD DOOM Port) IPX Multiplayer is quite good. The Co-op mode runs in deathmatch without frags.

And DOOM had no posters. There wasn't much blood either. Duke3D is more RPG like, with Inventory and all that useless stuff. I just don't like Duke3D as much as DOOM. Also, Build has most of the features that DOOM has, with more 'useless' features (like inventory) added. It still has untrue 3D, low resolutions, etc.

Doom is one of, if not THE favourite game of mine. I still make wads for it, and the Doom community is still thriving after all these years. I participate in Doom projects and make maps and everything. Zdoom owns.

I would like Duke 3D a hell of a lot more if it was based on the original real Duke and not completely re-designed and everything.

DOOM ownz!!! It has much better gameplay, and you live longer (d3d, two shells and ur dead). Plus, the levels are much more fun and there are quite a lot of editors out there, and many mods.

o yea... i forgot to post. I voted doom. Sure the graphics sucked, and sure the sound wasn't 100%... but do you know anybody who had a computer that hasn't EVER once played DOOM? Come on... the only games more classic than that are pac-man and SMB1

it wasn't top of the line, but it was still pretty good. It sure beat PC speaker which was still rather popular at the time.
