I guess that line is supposed to be an apology to the nazis for all the games they made where you kill them? Pretty funny, iD Software - ha ha.
benefit of the doubt: 90's humor for a 90's game style? Maybe there is a part where you order at a drive through and there is a zombie working the window?
I'm gonna probably play this game till my eyes bleed, by the way.
Allow me to paraphrase Sigmund Freud:
Sometimes a Joke is just a Joke.
I hope it sells better than Wolfenstein: The New Order did...
I used to think there weren't that many people who consider themselves progressives who actively held racist, sexist, beliefs. No, this joke is fine. I've seen too many people in my own party justify racism or sexism on the grounds of changing the definition arbitrarily to include historical oppression. Somehow justifying bad behavior.
Go ahead and try to have a conversation with someone who thinks you owe the world because you're white and male. It's a really shitty thing being shown that prejudices like those are wrong your whole life and then have the people you assumed would stand up against said prejudice (many being part of an oppressed group themselves) suddenly start to excuse it in droves.
People are becoming extreme and shitty on both sides of the spectrum. Conservatives still hold the title of Most Shitty by a wide margin, and will for a long time to come, but there are some really depressing trends gaining momentum right now.
So yeah, fuck you if you don't have perspective on this issue.

i think it's just a joke, and not even an original one. PC mocking jokes like that have been around since the 80s
If the usual suspects are crying about this on social media then that's funny because this is exactly what they sound like. I hear "you should say 'mortally-challenged,'" and I'm reminded of 'Minor-Attracted Person.'
But it's a fucking joke, just like in Doom 3 where the polite computer voice lectured you on Union Aerospace Corporation's monumental achievements while an Imp shoved a fireball down your throat.
It's good to see that for every one person whining about that joke, there are a good 20-odd people laughing at them for doing so.
It's a bottom-of-the-barrel joke though. Like, it would be beneath Family Guy. No target is off limits if you make it actually funny.
It's not a complicated joke, just making fun of megacorporations using "socially aware" language because they believe it will benefit them or as damage control for something they're responsible for, in this case UAC trying to put a positive PR spin on the demon invasion they helped bring about.

Doom 2016 was very good. I have a few critiques of it tho...
1. Upgrade system. They managed to avoid adding unnecessary baggage in most places.. But massive 'AAA' bethesda owned studio cant seem to avoid adding *some* pointless clutter to their game.
2. Boss battles. They felt very 'consoley' ie. Boss following repetitive attack patterns, and featuring gameplay unlike all non-boss gameplay.
3. The look of most of levels.
Most of the Mars levels looked like any uninspired generic sci-fi shooter. They basically were total shit. And hell, looked nice, but, it was very samey, and also not very inspired. I mean its *hell* there could have been all kinds of varied wacky shit.. But there wasnt.
Suck it you SJW libtards! LOL!

This game looks dope, if I was 14 I would be playing this nonstop.

You wont need an expensive machine to run this. It is designed to run on xbox +ps4.. You could probably cobble together a machine that will run all curent-gen games at max for c. 600 depending what you already have (case, power supply, hard drives, peripherals, etc)
I've had the same gaming rig going on six years now. Core i7 with 30 GB RAM and a GeForce GTX 760 video card. It still runs nice but is starting to show its age with current gen stuff.
I suppose all I'd really need to do is swap out the old card for a 1060 or something, but I don't know the life left on the other parts, etc. I guess I don't know shit about computers either. This was a top-reviewed machine I got off Newegg back when I had money.
Ignoring all the comments trying to take a single line of dialog and make a mountain out of a molehill...
This gameplay looks really fun and I like the grappling hook idea. I always loved logging into servers on OG Quake where the axe had a grappling hook.
Quake II Team Fortress had some wicked mods that would let you grapplehook, fly, etc. This was c. 1998, mind.
Wow, people sure have a lot to say about some fucking line you can barely hear.
