    Except for the part where Hell was literally invading our reality, enslaving and murdering humans and using UAC resources to increase their power. The demons go around conquering other universes, adding them to their own, ours is next.
    And they don't go to Hell to capture the Demons, they go there to harvest Argent Energy to solve Earths energy crisis. It wasn't until prominent members of the science team were compromised by Hells influence that shit goes south and the purpose of the UAC outpost was corrupted into arming the forces of Hell for the upcoming invasion of Earth.
    You actually had to intentionally ignore the (pretty simple) plot to come to the conclusion that Hell were the good guys.

    I'm late, but this got me and so In the spirit of having fun I'm quoting Alex Jones. "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever.
    Well I got news for them you don't run the show and you don't run the heavens and you don't even run humanity and everything you build against us is gonna be used against you and it's going to be directly responsible for your downfall and that's why you hate me because you know I speak the truth and you know that this flesh isn't pure, but my spirit is and means everything I say!
    I see you every horrible part of you, every facet, every surface, every little deep thought. I'm in a death-battle and now you see the enemy say there in a death-battle! They know they're in a death battle! Only in the spirit of knowing you're in a death-battle will have you win! Because you don't like the spirit of justice."

    ACKTHUALLY, but for real actually the doom slayer was tricked by demons hundred of years ago into helping them turn hell into, well, hell, and he did it in exchange for getting his son back from death, but that was also a ruse and he turned into the boss for the original doom games the Icon of Sin. So yeah hes understandably pretty pissed at Demons.

    Sorry, but exactly everything that you said was wrong. The Doom Slayer´s just - let us say: the most brutal representation of good. The demons are evil conquering war-loving that wants to conquer all dimensions and planets, and let its inhabitants be enslaved and live under their dystopian brutal and violent rule.

    Demons aren’t innocent by any means though. Hell exists for the soul purpose of invading other realms and assimilating them into its horde. It’s not just because “they’re demons” but rather because their motives are nefarious.

    Sounds like something Satan would say

  • Panic The Scholar Knight.

    In the game, that Doomguy was the leader of the Knight Sentinals who were the innocent human goodguys protecting the wraiths. The original source of Argent Energy from his homeworld. The demons wanted the energy for themselves but they couldn't kill the Knight Sentinals head on so they had to strategies. They chose to deceive the leader of the Knight Sentinals, our doomguy who had lost his son. The demons said they could bring his son back to life if he brought them to the wraiths. He betrayed his friends and allies as well as all humanity to do this. But in the end when he had lost everything to get his son back, his "son" was given back to him... But he was not human. He was a demon, the Icon Of Sin.
    This is where Doomguy went on a rampage and destroyed everything demonic. He wreicked so much havoc that Satan himself cowered deeper into his hole in fear of Doomguy, or The Hell Walker as they called him. Acknowledging The Doomslayers accomplishments in battle a Seraphim (an important angel figure) granted him great strength and speed as well as a measure of devine protection to aid in combatting the demon hordes. Then a traitor to demon kind (known as "He Who Shall Not Be Named") created a suit of armor in the deepest fires of hell for him that was impossibly resiliant to aid further in destroying The Demonic.
    In their desperation to prevent extinction, the blood priests lured him into a trap and collapsed an entire building on him then encased him in bedrock placing a seal on him to sleep for all eternity. They feared if they outright killed him he would become a demon of unfathomable power.
    So... Yeah, the domons are not innocent. The corrupt corperations who have regulated themselves outside of government control stole ardent energy under Samuel Hayden. The rest of humanity was oblivious to what was going on. In a way, humanity was stealing back the energy the demons stole through deception. The demons are not innocent.

  • AJ Niebler

    Doom 2 ends with you sealing yourself in hell, after the icon of sin dies, so no demon can escape. Hell on earth happens before doom 2 and technically before Doom 1 as in Doom 1 you kill the spider mastermind which developed the plan to invade earth. So in chronological order it's "doom hell on earth"
    "Doom 2"
    "Doom 2016"
    Atleast this is how it makes sense to me

    Well since I only read the lore on the demons, and not much else like your robust buddy there.
    from a youtuber here, the 2016 is essentially a sequel to the first two installments. The Doomguy is a marine who got trapped in hell where he becomes the doomslayer and out of desperation the demons managed to seal him away since they could not really stop his rampage.
    era's later his sarcophagus is discovered and brought back from he'll along with a few demons to run studies upon, even accidentally reviving and making a cyber demon. Missing some details but it is here on youtube.

    thats right, "let hell be hell". but if the inhabitants of hell illegally immigrate here...? then we're racist for telling them to go back, and we have to pay for them. you said it man, not me. i completely agree, let them suffer their torment in peace. no unnecessary foreign wars and no illegal immigration. i wish the best for all foreign nationals. i wish the best for their respective nations, but they need to stay in their respective nations and work to improve them, not rely on our already over burdened welfare system.

    Oh my god Cracked you guys are fucking retarded, actually pay attention to the lore if you are going to point it out. DoomGuy was a Night Sentinel who betrayed the others to the demons and when he was betrayed by the demons he became incorruptible and the demons feared his might. The locked him away and the UAC found him and Olivia opened a gateway to hell, the same thing DoomGuy did in Argent D'Nur and so he goes about killing the demons. The demons are the aggressors because they convinced Olivia to let them in, the UAC did not pit weapons on the demons. Olivia did. She experimented on demons to make them stronger, the Revenants were soldiers with those packs on that were corrupted by the Lazarus Wave. Fucking hell you point out some lore and disregard others. I agree with Rags, you guys hate games and gamers and try to make us feel like cunts when you guys are the cunts. If you want to convince me that DoomGuy is evil then give me evidence, not this misinformation obviously targeted towards people who don't play DOOM. Plus DoomGuy is like the most good dude in all of gaming, he is an incorruptible weapon of light with an iron will, he was granted powers by the Seraphim and a set of armor from a demon who betrayed his own. DoomGuy made a mistake and paid for it, now he will fight to protect humanity from the demons and give the demons the same pain they made him feel. Actually think and pay attention you stupid cock sucking motherfuckers. Fuk you guys make me mad.

    Haha what? You guys know not a thing about the lore of doom. Argent dnur was invaded by hell. They took it over and enslaved the wraiths and the praetors of that dimension. They would have come here, again but we beat them to it with a priemptive strike. Hell is not innocent and neither is heaven because they are both one of the same. Get your stories right before you start a shit fight. There are also 4 novels for the doom universe. The doom marine as been to hell, mars and earth and in the ultimate doom he decided to stay there to make sure hell couldn't be ripped back open. But it was, from our side which means hell has another portal... a back door... think bigger gents REAL BIG

    They didn't kidnap or weaponize demons, the demons happened to meld with the UAC's tech. The UAC was also testing on them. The demons also invaded Mars and massacred tens of thousands of people. They're evil by definition anyways and like all of IDs games the enemies don't need some reason for you to kill them they just deserve it cause they're evil
