They completely scrapped the original version they were making including the creative team, because it seemed too much like Call of Doom. This is the Doom 4 that is the true descendent of the Dooms before it.

I heard about these games when Quake came out. That cost me several months of my life. It is funny you should ask about the computer?! I owned a string of computer stores but pretty much stayed away from the mega configurations as that would have been expensive. I figure you could have a pretty good system for a few thousand - with most going into the multiple displays, speakers, multiple power amplifiers, custom built furniture, etc. - that is unless you live in Greece.

I have such an addictive personality that I really should stay away

Well, I use three monitors, an 8 core processor, 16G of memory and a kick ass graphics card and 3 SSD drives. Wonder if it will be enough?...........

Even if you get 200fps, it will never be as sweet as 400fps

Yep! That is the foundation of a good system. To play the games to the max, you will need a lot of externals.
