To show him most representative of community, use some wad with flying dick rockets and ACS with customized offenses :p
Seriously, "in December" sounds like no for me... In Poland, we say "in December afternoon" when we want someone to go away and stop bothering.
If he'd want to play Zandro, I guess he would already be doing it, under some alias.

Hey, the world isn't spinning around Romero. Why f*k up that SNS game just because of one man?

yep, I'm heretic

Do you really want to give the developers a bad impression? I mean, think of it this way, if you were a developer of a great game that's been made years ago, and you were to see who is still bothering with it by going to a milestone anniversary event, would you want your fans to give you something that tells you they really enjoy it or something that would make you go "What has happened to this game?"

I think it's because people don't want him to visit, pat our heads and feel nostalgic for a moment... I think that we want him to enjoy it just as we do, which I think isn't possible to force whatever awesome wads we would use. He either would enjoy it or not.

I knew there would be some reservations to this. I personally am a big fan of Romero in general, having played most of his games and read "masters of doom" and have wanted to play doom with him for a while (dunno why :3). I don't even think it would attract that many people, it's not asking anyone to advertise the fact he's playing or whatever. Also it's over 10 months away so we can just let this die a bit for now ;3

Not a big deal, christ the man hasn't done anything significant since that one shooter in the 90s

OTOH stuff like this is just as retarded:
Why f*k up that SNS game just because of one man?
As if having another player around is going to fuck up an event on it's own.

Pretty significant for us seeing as we play an iteration of that game on a daily basis.

You're treating the guy like some kind of celebrity and as if this will change anything at all. I already feel bad for the endless fanworship he'll inevitably have to endure if he does show up.

I think you're reading to far into it. This aint like a fuckin homage to him or anything, it was just an idea to have a tie in for the 20th anniversary.

He is a celebrity, almost of the greatest degree in the doom community. IDK how anyone could play Doom and not want to show up to such an event.

Well Sns will be gay orgy night for december
[spoiler]i once killed a lion with a spinning back fist. It was years ago, on safari in Africa. My guide Mombomotombo was taking a leak behind a tree when out from the bushes a lion charged at me. At first i just looked at him the way bruce lee looked at Ohara in enter the dragon. But, the lion kept coming. When he was in mid air, with claws and teeth ready to do me like a zebra, i took 2 steps back and unleashed a chuck norris spinning back fist, crushing the lions skull.
than i ate his heart

He's also the widely known videogaming joke of the late 90s, vastly outclassing even Mark Rein's incessant vocal antics. (which any Epic fan will know about)

At one point, for most people, Not Even Doom Matters..
