DOOM (1993): tiny, fast, runs on just about anything, originally released on 2 floppy disks and shared via FTP at 1993 internet speeds

DOOM (2016): takes 1 hour to download on a 200 mbps internet connection and requires an nvidia gtx 670 or better

@chr 1993: Open-world maps, interesting logical puzzles, you against the armies of Hell.

2016: Press X to advance thru a tunnel and be told what to do by passive-aggressive voicemail.

@OberstKrueger @chr Doom '93's soundtrack is iconic, and there are many great non-PC-MIDI remixes and performances.

Nobody knows 2016's soundtrack, if it even has one; it's incidental music.

But the great iD soundtrack is of course Trent Reznor's Quake soundtrack, nothing else even comes close.
