and DOOM 3 now features the new armor-mounted flashlight, allowing players to illuminate dark corners and blast enemies at the same time
I'm -really- surprised at the amount of people here who actually -liked- the Flashlight.
Whoa, @momofrose out of NOWHERE.
The flashlight thing was just a totally artificial restriction, even if you accept Doom's bizarre lack of weapon mounted lights/duct tape there is no reason you couldn't hold a torch in one hand and the pistol in another. It was an arbitrary and immersion breaking restriction just to score some lazy jump scares.
Maybe it's just me, but the "jump scare" was the best part! I had an addiction to that pounding heartbeat when I'd hear the boss but not be able to see him.
