Why not change it. Aren't you fond of jumping smiley faces with their tongues hanging out?

Currently a little disappointed in Crysis... But thinks may change during Beta/Overall Progress...

Same here. Quake4 > Doom3.

I rather enjoyed the first Halo on PC. Up until then I hadn't seen some of the things it offered. Throwing a sticky grenade on an Elite's back and watch him running around, arms flailing, yelling, and then BOOM - he goes flying through the air. Or when you drove the tank and lobbed a shell in amongst a group of targets they all went flying through the air. Awesome! Plus the graphics (SM2) at the time were pretty neat. Though the game did run like a pig at first.

Halo 2 was worth playing for me only because I liked the storyline. It didn't offer anything new or revolutionary over the first one. Graphics were a little better but it wasn't night/day. I hated the vehicle controls, they totally ruined it in the PC version of the 2nd game. Total PITA.

Anyhow Doom3 probably takes the cake for overhyped IMO. I had more fun in ROE than I did the first game. Just dragged ON, and ON, and ON. Way, way to repetitive and dark.

I loved FarCry. The AI was absolutely excellent at higher difficulties. The graphics were ofcourse great. I don't understand how some people diss the character gfx either. The models were excellent IMO. Lots of detail in the faces and even the arms.

HL2 was disappointing to me only because it ran like total dog**** when it came out. It's much better now. And it looks pretty good, even by today's standards. But good God what a train wreck it was out the door. Stuttering anyone? Crackling sound?
