yer random observation #1

Doom’s one of the earliest 3D action games I can think of where wild animals are not a threat to the player – Wolf3D had its attack dogs and Ultima Underworld its giant cave creatures like bats and rats but Doomguy only has demons and zombies to avoid! I always really appreciated how fighting animals was handled by Ultima 4 – if you can fend them off then their urge to survive will override their territorial instincts at which point you get penalized if you DON’T allow them to flee. Animals don’t actually want us dead!
