Dan, you came to the conclusion that everything looks black viewing a low res pixelated video.
Doom 3s tech is better looking than anything that's ever been seen in games. If you can't see that (watch the bathroom scene in that e3 video again, there is no way someone could think that looks bad), I don't know if you are looking at the same game the rest of the world is.
The animation, lighting quality, and character detail is better than anything ever seen in realtime. I don't why you're so anti Doom 3 (maybe you think the gameplay will suck?), but when the game comes out, there will be nothing better graphically. It's a shame that you're so pessimistic about this engine, which is probably the best thing that has happened to computer graphics since 3d acceleration.
