Ignorance is bliss. You were never given any info on Doom 3 for about 5 years and did people complain even once? No. Why? Because they never gave out a release date for them to miss. At least Valve attempted to keep the community somewhat informed. What do people do? complain.
I can't wait for half life 2. The first one is my favorite PC game of all time. Just think... Day of Defeat on the source engine
