The only game where black was considered a color.

Hopefully monsters will actually be on a level instead of spawning somewhere nearby all the damned time.

Hey...now that Ubisoft has exclusive rights to the Tom Clancy name, maybe id could cut a deal to get Sam Fisher in the game similar to how Yoda and Darth Vader will be in the next SC4. With Sam in the game we could turn on night vision anytime we wanted. I'm just not sure how well grab-them-by-the-neck stealth kills would work on demons.  Tongue

I never played Doom 3. I guess I will eventually.

Though since the setting is pretty much a reboot of the 1st Doom, will Doom 4 actually be Doom 2 rebooted? There's a lot they could do with the Hell on Earth setting.

maybe the Marines will figure out how to carry a flashlight in their off hand this time, or discover duct tape...

I didn't even get to find out if it needed flashlights... The screen was all black when I started it up, so I returned it.  icon_wink

LOL. Their directions say 10 minutes east of Dallas. Uh huh. Try 30 at best unless you're living in downtown. That being said, I am apparently SOL as I'm not a designer nor an artist.

Played and finished Doom 3 twice. I didn't find it unduly dark as that seemed consistent with the setting and the mood; besides there was a flashlight mod for those who wanted it.

What disappointed me was realizing how a lot of creative and talented work went into a game that was supposed to be a AAA production but came out as stale and derivative. 10 - 15 years ago, monsters appearing out of nowhere and darkness substituting for dramatic tension, well...back then it would've worked and seemed novel. Now, despite all the graphical advances, the game felt old.

It was just banal. Like watching a Sci-Fi channel movie.

Good point, although it wasn't a big deal to me at the time, it would've been more logical storywise - and I think more fun - had we had encounters with other (soon-to-be-dead) surviving characters. After all, the takeover was going on right then and there: we weren't investigating a long lost station.

That's one thing I loved about a lot of Quake 4. It felt like an honest war with tons of other soldiers around you fighting, for at least the first half of the game. If DOOM 4 comes out and it feels more like Aliens in that regard, i.e. squads fighting demons and you can intermingle with as many as you want/need, that would be awesome. Another glorified "Alone in the Dark" with rockets is not what I'm anxious for.
