I enjoyed HL2 and Doom3. Doom3 is definitely better in small doses imo. Also better played in the dark with surround sound.

You played Doom 3 for ~15 hours straight?

Ya it was a good game, a bit dissapointing, though HL2 also didn't hold up to the hype. Will be getting RoE that's for sure.

Doom 3 is amazing. In fact, I'm playing it through in preparation for ROE.

That's what i've been telling people who hated the game.
I think liking Doom 3 or not is a lot about the first impression. I started playing it at night with a decent pair of headphones. Alone in the dark this game really shines.
The lighting with this engine is so impressive i think i'm gonna cry.

The problem with Doom3 was the repetition. If the only way it can be really enjoyed with most people is to sit down for an hour at a time then to me the game has a problem.

The graphics were great but the game has about 0 replayability IMO.

I play this game too now im about half way there soon to reach the frickinh horrible delta labs. I think this game owns i still get preety damn scared if i hear suddenly a strange sound or when a zombie suddenly suprises me very good since i thought that once you beat the game you wont get scared anymore well i was wrong i have played the game now 3 times so this must be my fourth time and i am almost as scared as i was the first time and that rocks. And today i played some HL2 and there is really too boring you know exactly almost whats gonna happen same enemies mostly through the whole level which is a shame because here doom3 owns you never now when something bad is gonna happen.

Pretty much my sentiment's there.

I do like the tech in D3, and I do like a couple of the latter levels and the shotgun and the sound effects are absolutely brilliant.

Not the classic the first installments were and not quite as good, IMO, as the hype.

Well, most workdays I usually only have time for an hour or so of gaming so I reckon it worked out pretty well on my schedule.

I agree on the replayability of the game. Found it fun the first time though.
