Bethesda and the companies under it can’t go one second without making a blunder. If you don’t know, at QuakeCon 2019 Bethesda released the Doom Trilogy (containing Doom 1, 2, and 3) for PS4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch. Well, the two classic games come loaded with DRM, load screens, and sound issues. However, Bethesda promises to fix one of the many looming issues.
One problem that is soon to be on the corrected list is The Bethesda.net login requirement, which was intended for the Slayers Club to reward members for playing the classic DOOM games. However, the general public had to encounter said log-in screen.
If you want to know all of the problems housed in the Doom Trilogy within minutes, YouTuber Modern Vintage Gamer has a video showing off the looming issues in said port:
In case you did not watch the video, Doom 1 and 2 require a one-time online activation and a Bethesda account.
As of now, Bethesda has said the login requirement for the Doom Trilogy (mainly Doom 1 and 2) should be optional and is working on a fix:
We will update everyone when a fix is ready.

Despite the whole DRM thing, though, other problems such as terrible and slow music still exist, and load times are now a thing unlike the vanilla versions of the games that released in 1993 and 1994 respectively. You can check out both problems courtesy of YouTubers Gamers Xtreme and PlayStation Universe:
Overall, this should come in as no surprise given that the above mess is a direct act of Bethesda and Zenimax. Anyway, you do best just sticking with the PC version of Doom 1 and 2 or ignoring the trilogy given how botched it is at the moment.
Finally, Doom Trilogy — containing Doom 1 (1993), Doom 2 (Classic), and Doom 3 — is a digital product (not physical) and is for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Bethesda also released Doom 1 and Doom 2 for iOS and Android devices for $4.99 each, while Doom 3 runs for $9.99.
