Default Doom 3 is too dark.

Dunno why but when i play Doom3 even with the game setting to full brightness its still too dark. Not sure what is causing this.
I have a 6800GT with DX9c and 61.77 drivers and newest nforce drivers.

Nothing is "causing this" It's a dark game, that's all there is to it. All of Id's games are dark in color pallate (Quake I-III). Try playing it at night with lights off. Not only will it scare the shyt out of you, it'll look not as washed out.

its called a flash light, turn it on and use it, Other than that, there are parts of the game that are supposed to be BLACK that you cannot see with out the light. (and i like it that way)

Doom 3 is SUPPOSED TO BE DARK! Thats like saying a horror movie is too scary. It's meant to up the atmosphere and make your pants wet.

My understanding, and looking at the screenshots I've seen...it's supposed to be a dark game. It isn't just you. You could increase your monitor brightness and gama settings, but that's about it. It's not a problem

Still working on screenshots i dont have a TGA viewer. I know its supposed to look dark but this is way too dark compared to what it looked like on my brothers comp. And ya upping the brightness and stuff works but it makes everything look worse than it should.

I know id games are designed to be dark, but I do agree that D3 is a bit too dark for my liking.

It is darker than normal... There is an option within Doom 3 settings that allows you to turn up the brightness though. Just have a try and find out which settings of brightness that you like.
