Why would I do that?
I am sorry if it seems like I am picking on you DoomKrakken but this is a rant to the entire community in general, not to you.
No one can tell you how to enjoy life. No one can tell you how to enjoy video games. That's something YOU have to decide for yourself. And these Doom fundamentalists that keep coming by saying "you aren't playing the REAL Doom, it's just an emulator, tralalalalala etc etc" are wrong. The game you are playing is Doom, or based on Doom, but tuned to YOUR desires. That's one of the things that makes Doom so great is that we can actually do that. There's nothing wrong with it, and unlike many modern games that actively put in efforts to STOP modding - Doom openly encourages it!
Unfortunately, typing that here is just going to go into an echo cavern - it's actually possible that I will not get anyone disagreeing with me here (otherwise what would be the point of coming to the ZDoom site - a site tailored for a port that has spent its entire existence being purely avant garde?). The people who really need to hear that argument are the ones over on Doomworld - not all of them, mind you, just a select few that are numerous enough to cause comments like the one I quoted above to appear.
EDIT: Maybe I got a little fired up typing that - but the point still stands - never let ANYONE judge you for playing the game the way you want to play it.

Either they think its fun to be low on ammo, low on health packs, or both. Or they have rooms that are designed to kill me if I advance at a high pace. They also tend to make really large maps that sometimes can take longer to complete than a full Doom 1 episode at the speed I like to play it at. On half of those I just get lost. The very worst mods for me are the ones that decided they don't like one of the original weapons (like kdizd did with the super shotgun) and gave me some gimped unfun replacement. In those maps I just IDKFA and use the (unfun) BFG replacement.
