I think FarCry has the superior technology (3Dc, HDR, SM3.0, Offset mapping, Bumpmapping) and Doom3 has the better atmosphere, and artists for that matter, but apparently they like low rez textures.

well yeah, that's what i meant and i think that's what the original post meant: some were aware, but Crytek had nowhere near the attention and power behind its name as id did/does. they were a relatively unknown underdog and came out with guns a-blazing.

True, I see what you (and Sazar were saying). What I was saying is that there's a difference in isolated personal perception and fact. But sure, the consensus would definitely show id Software being more well known than Crytek.

Hmm, well if this is a matter of "quality" and "polish" then Doom 3 wins it in my book. When it comes down to engines I would really like to do the huge outdoor enviroments with full per pixel lighting done on the Doom 3 engine at a good speed. Im waiting for the demo before I pick up Doom 3 since im not a big fan of "run an gun" first person shooters.

Doom 3 is hardly "run and gun". It's more like...creep around "WHAT THE CRAP WAS THAT???"...turn corner..."HOLY CRAP!!!"....

/me tinkles me trousers

creep around some more...blast the crap out of a zombie, demon or two...creep around...change trousers..."HOLY CRAP!!!!"....etc, etc

It might use more advanced Tech, but look where Doom 3 gets without it. Now just please drop the whole "crap textures" thing, coz i'm pretty sure that there is a few people out there that are getting quite sick of it.

Everyone is fully aware of your take by now. Please give it a rest, you've become a broken record and it just seems like you are spamming.
