When compared to other DOOM games, at least.
DOOM Eternal

Bethesda and id Software just announced that DOOM Eternal has broken franchise sales records. According to the teams, DOOM Eternal has broken franchise records for opening weekend sales. DOOM Eternal has apparently doubled the launch revenue of 2016's DOOM. They also note that DOOM Eternal was the best selling game on Steam for most of the week and has managed to pull in over 100,000 concurrent players at its peak.

At present, DOOM Eternal is sitting at an average review score of 89% at OpenCritic. Just keep in mind that there is a lot that is different with DOOM Eternal compared to 2016's DOOM. The team at id have added a lot of additional mechanics to the game. This has been a big point of contention between fans, with some loving these changes and others coming away largely disappointed that this sequel wasn't just more of 2016's DOOM experience.

DOOM Eternal was released on March 20, 2020 for the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Stadia. Prices for the game start at $59.99 (USD).

The successful launch of DOOM Eternal mirrors its global critical acclaim. To date DOOM Eternal has earned Metacritic scores of 90/89/87 on PC/Xbox/PS4 and a 96% Critics Recommended rating on OpenCritic -- with many calling it a clear game-of-the-year contender and one the best first-person shooter campaigns in the history of the genre.
