Outside of being an FPS neither are the same at all. Doom is still great. Halo feels past it's prime and limping onto 2007 still to me. Halo to me is like Sonic in a way. It was the new kid on the block. It was new, exciting, and fresh for almost a decade. Then it kinda felt old and going down in quality and mot enough new to feel fresh anymore. Never fully recapturing that feeling. Doom always feels fresh. Halo still has it's fanbase as does Sonic but not the industry darling anymore. Unlike Sonic the series never went rotten thankfully but I do think it's somewhat mediocre now. Doom always finds a way to feel familiar yet brand new at the same time.

They may not be the same by core design and story, that's not really where the rivalry holds between these two franchises. These two FPS games are some of the longest serving in the FPS genre and have been king on multiple occasions. Both have also had their low periods, Doom fell in that hole with Final Doom, Doom 64 (Which i enjoyed) and Doom 3 (Which was alright) while Halo's fall was really with Halo 5 due to its direction rather than its quality. They are all top of the class when it comes to quality built games. They are also the FPS shooters with Green armored super solders as there main heroes. Also Bungies original intention was to create a Doom killer, failed with Marathon however succeeded with Halo, now Doom is now showing up turning the tables around. Its just a fascinating scenario between the two.
