What is happening. In the last 3 months I've seen like a dozen games like this. Everyone misses Hexen/Heretic/Blood somehow?

Indie devs have moved on from chasing their own tails in the Metroidvania and Rogue Lite genres.

I'm surprised no one has made Heretic/Hexen like fps. I'd like to see a revival of the series tbh.
They could make it into a fps like Doom but with rpg like systems for character builds, melee and magic etc..Have a more open world and slower gameplay compared to Doom.
If you wonder why I bring up Doom is because Heretic/Hexen has always used IDs engines.

Somehow demons and the occult is taboo.

This may be a good thing, as maybe they are finally moving on from developing baby's first game (i.e. walking sims with zero gameplay).
