    When i saw Q4 the first time i thought exactly the same.
    It's mix of Doom 3 (but not so scary) and Halo.
    The graphic and map is very much like doom.

    Nikos, I think the Q4 engine and the Doom3 engine are diffrent. If I remeber corectly that they have two diffrent devitions for their games. Thats probly why you get better FPS than in Doom3.

    Ha ha! Same here. I hope you watch original untranslated (in Japanese) anime? Because the dubbed versions suck big time. The only reason I patched my DVD drive's firmware to make it region-free, is because I want to watch imported anime DVDs...

    And get FEAR as soon as you can. It's one of those games that, even if you didn't like that much in the end, you have to say "I've played it."

    The engines are basically the same, I think. You can tell just by looking at the graphics. Same style of bump-mapping, same lighting, the way pixel-shading is done, etc. Maybe they just improved the performance on ATI cards (I'm on a 9800Pro), because Doom3 was only flying on GeForce cards.

    I see you didn't play Silent Hill 3 and/or 4 yet.

    When I compare Doom 3 to FEAR, I like D3 better (not that FEAR isn't an excelent game, mind you). It's just that I find Science Fiction horror more scarry than "regular" horror. Also, even though FEAR has some very awesome graphics at some places, they fall flat when compared to what Doom 3 is doing to your graphics board!

    Personally IMO F.E.A.R. has much better overall gameplay, also keep in mind there is not alot of mods out yet for the game as it was only released not long ago, it can only become better, Multiplayer is a blast, even Single player the gameplay itself is exciting and fun.

    One of my all time favs for Multiplayer however is the first Deux Ex, loved the multiplayer in that game and even today that graphics are not really bad at all.
    No, you cannot have my signature, unless you pay me. I am famous you know.

    "Even" singleplayer? That's all there is if you want plot and scarry moments.

    It seems like this Jack Thompson thread has turned in to a scary game thread.

    Personally i didn't like F.E.A.R at all, though I only tried the mp/sp demo. The singleplayer was "OK", but i didn't like the multiplayer part at all.
    And I don't buy game for the singleplayer part, I'm buying games mostly for the online play.
    I didn't like DOOM 3 either, I guess that I don't like games that there are a risk you shit in your pants all the time.

    I like classic shoters like the quake series, I really liked Q4,
    although I didn't like the multiplayer part as much as I like the Q3 multiplayer part.

    Böse

    Well,i think that the problem in USA is that people tend to blame other people for their own faults.Canada,Germany,Japan ...etc., all have videogames and they dont have such problems.
    Some principals/teachers in the US kicked a few kids - one of them because he simulated A CHICKEN LEG as a GUN! (Bowling for columbine anyone?) this is just ridiculous.

    Its easier to blame other people or entities for your own errors.
    But tell me,how many lawyers did they make a lawsuit against NRA and then be so popular in the media ???
    Anyway my point is:
    I totaly agree with you Hakira... i think this lawyer wants to JUSTIFY what violent youths are doing.This is NOT helping but postponing the inevitable (inevitable being because of the wrong approach of this problem)

    Do i make any sense ?

    Yes, I only watch fansubs... I own a few on DVD but most of my colection is on fansubs...

    Also, Im on a ATI Radeon 9800xt pro and it gets fine FPS in Doom 3, I think I pull off about 60 FPS in ultra mode... (note: ultra mode basicly rapes the video card, You are definitly going to need a relpacement heatsink, Im running a Arctic Cool Silencer 3....)
