  1. I just loaded up the demo. I found it to be over-designed, full of flashy hard-coded "bells and whistles" with no focus on gameplay at all. In other words, I was so bored that my head hurt. Plus, I see no real progress toward realism. You can't get a good-looking game just by piling on polygons and shadows and many layers of texture. It doesn't work that way.

    I >>could<< continue playing it and see how I like it, but I would be forcing myself. Playing the first bit of Doom 3 is like seeing the beginning of Battlefield Earth, and then debating whether to continue. Eventually you just have to draw the line and say "I should have been entertained by now."

      Don't say that I ever said "it will" this or it will that, because I never said "it will" anything. I always said "If Doom 3 is this way, then that will be stupid" or "If Doom 3 were like this then it would be good." You know that this is true because you've acknowledged it before.

      I won't argue semantics. Whether or not you were careful enough to avoid making direct statements does not mean that it wasn't bleedingly obvious to anyone with eyes and a brain that you put zero faith in id's ability to make Doom 3 a good game.

      As for examples of people that I tend to agree with, there's Quast, Zoost, and doomedout for starters. There's more. Just go back about a month and look at this thread. There are plenty of people there that basically said the same things that I did.

      Yes but those people actually PLAYED THE GAME or at least a good portion of it, as opposed to playing the "first bit" of the demo which is in itself only about 1/9 of the full game. If you gave Doom 3 a fair shake and ended up hating it anyway, I wouldn't care in the slightest. Hell I didn't like the majority of the game myself. But there are good parts to be found, seeds of something great which I believe could have been moulded into something astounding, and who knows, if someone ends up making a mission pack with a) more big monster fights and b) more Hell / nonstandard architecture combined with c) less impenetrable darkness, it could be amazing. But without playing the game there's no way to make that assessment, and I certainly wouldn't pretend to if my Doom 3 experience consisted of the first half of Mars City before I threw up my hands and dove for the uninstall button.

      Look, before you start reading only portions of posts, I'd like to say that my brother is coming this way and he has a lot more meat on him than I do. Why don't you let me cross and take him instead?

      ahhahahahhahahhahahhahahah dude you're awesome

      I would have used the word eat instead of take at that ending though.

      Okay then, fair enough. Just so you know, I don't want to pretend to be any expert on the quality Doom 3 either. And if there was some game-rating site out there, I wouldn't vote on it because I'm not qualified.

      (And if I walked out on a movie, I wouldn't vote on it on IMDB for the same reason.)
