Sounds effects are the most important for me.. the sound of weapons and other enviroment effects.. there is nothing that upset me more in a game that poor sound effects in my favorite Gun.. games like CAll of duty really shines here.. the sounds effects are simply amazing.. make you believe that you are really there ,where the game action in happening.
Have you ever heard any of Reznor's music?

I am definately not expecting much from D3's music (and even sounds to some extent) now.. oh well, the game should still be good, i was just really looking forward to this aspect of it, as Q1's music was awesome.

well not exactly

but its not the end of the world ...i think, if REznor music is not there.but Music its not what im looking when playing DOom3.. graphics and gameplay is. you can still listen REznor or Britney spears or any CD of music in the cdrom while playing the game at the same time too.

i really like the music of games like RAInbowsix games,medalofhonor and call of duty.. but those are more for heroes style games. wonder what kind of music fits well in a game like doom3. the problem with music is that not everyone have the same taste,so it can ruin a game if it is not properly used ,means distract you from feeling fear (in the case of doom3) to irritating people. it will be interesting to see what IDsoftware will do in the game ,but it was already told by id that the game mostly will be ambient sounds ,with very few music. im really sure that the american magee alice music author will have a big surprise for us..

So Tool has nothing to do with Doom 3? Where did that rumor come from anyway? I mean, I know IGN reported it, but if it isn't true why would somebody make it up?

I'd rather have Tool do something in the game than NIN, but that's just because I'm a much bigger Tool fan than a NIN fan.

Yeah Tool are great!

I probably like them more than NIN also.. but for D3 i would still rather reznor make the music, i'm sure it would just suit it better.

but eh.. oh well, it still should be a great game. I just hope if they can't get anyone decent to make the music, that they just put that aspect aside and not make a half assed attempt at it themselves

I hate Tool with a passion. NIN wannabes; they discovered sonata allegro form and went "OH CRAP, WE HAVE TO MAKE ALL OF OUR SONGS LIKE THIS!"

Yes, Tool = Perfect Circle. All albums of each.

NIN on Fragile != NIN on Downward Spiral != NIN on Broken != NIN on Pretty Hate Machine. Now that's impressive.

Tool tries to be really deep and scary and angsty. NIN is just pop music, but really unbelievably good pop music.

You really have no idea what you're talking about.

Their EP sounds nothing like Undertow, which sounds nothing like Aenima, which sounds nothing like Lateralus.

There are huge differences in sound between each of their albums, and the EP.

And as far as NIN is concerned, a lot of their music DOES sound very repetitive and overused.

Listen to some of the stuff on PHM and then listen to Broken, I hear a lot of similiarities.

And Tool's lyrics just utterly destroy NIN's, not that anyone really pays attention to Trent's lyrics on the average anyways.

"Oh, I'm sorry. Did I break your concentration?"

No, see, every Tool song follows sonata allegro form. Every one. THAT SUCKS.

And every Tool album since... meh, I can't remember, I hate Tool anyway, but anyway, the every Tool album since 94 just wants to be The Downward Spiral.
