Default Re: Best Pic comparison of Doom 3 VS HL2 evar!!!

It's funny because the Doom3 car looks bright and flashy and the HL2 car looks dark sleek.

I'd say it was the other way round.

Doom3 is dark ( on purpose so get over it!!! ) and has great lighting/shadows and very high levels of detail.
HL2 looks flat ( based on recent screenshots ) and flashy ( based on stress test shader examples ).

BTW: What was the point of the StressTest? just to prove that Source engine can use Pixel shaders? maybe it was to counter the fact that most ( ie any shots without water ) screenshots from the game look bland and flat like Q2 with higher res textures.

Omega53: I think I've seen you post this a number of times before:

Well this thread has a picture and it's worthless. Someone please create us another smiley
