I want to believe. Doom is one of the single most important game franchises in history. The original really is up there with Super Mario Bros in terms of revolutionizing game design, quality, and still being just as fun to play today as the day it was released. Every game in the series is good, every game has been released on Nintendo hardware, and Nintendo even had Doom 64 as an exclusive for over two decades. It totally deserves Smash representation! Smash overall is really lacking in Western representation and I can think of few other this deserving.
Some people like to say the series is too violent for Smash and couldn't be done justice in an E10+ game, but I like to direct them to the Doom pinball game Zen Studios made. That table fully captures the spirit of Doom without any gore.
