Here is a blog post that breaks down and analyses how Doom Eternal's aesthetics and mechanics make fun of contemporary left-wing politics of "acceptance and tolerance of others":

Doom Eternal is the First Mainstream Product to Openly Mock the Left

I never paid attention to the voice announcements until this blog quoted and analysed them.

Quick impressions for Doom Eternal: combat is deeper, levels are bigger and have more exploration for secrets (though still linear so far), but there are some weird design choices that hurt the immersion (1UPs that instantly revive you when you die, all the pickups are this weird neon color that look completely out of place, secrets are these giant floating question marks)

Thanks!
I wonder if they will fix any of this later
Or add options to turn them off etc.

I didn't see any options like that currently. You can customize your HUD completely, toggling every individual piece.
But I haven't found a way to turn off any of that other stuff in the graphics options or anything
There's a lot less cool little animations when you pick stuff up too. In Doom 2016 when you got a keycard off a dead guy the Doom Slayer physically takes the card off of the guy's uniform. In Eternal it's a floating glowing thing you just find wherever

Ah that's disappointing
I am seeing people in my Steam friendlist who haven't bought a game in years come out of the woodwork and buy Doom Eternal today
