Going to hell is such an amazing opportunity for massive environments. Some real choice in the storyline would entice me. S.T.A.L.K.E.R and Assassin's Creed have moved more into this area but they are still missing key elements that I would really like to see.
Excuse me? You cannot put System Shock into ANY of these games especially System Shock II. While they may have had FPS roots they also had a lot more crap involved in the game than any other FPS will ever have.

At least most of crysis is outdoors, no flashlight to carry and walking in pitch black environments ;-)

That said... Yea i hated not having a flash light on the end of my gun too. But it made the game that much better.
Well there was a mod for that - old news actually, but even with that the game, at least for me was annoying, I guess it's a matter of taste, I didn't like it because of the darkness !

They tried to do something different with Doom franchise, it was a fresh change. But i don't think Doom 4 will be like that. I suspect its going to be more like the originals since so many people complained.
Maybe they should use the original maps and rebuild with new gfx engine :)

hmm, I think you all are rehashing really really old news. Remember Spear of Destiny? What? Not old enough for you? return to Castle Wolfenstein?

Or what about Heretic or Hexen.

I agree Tazer, the Video game market is completely supersaturated with no original ideas. I haven't bought any new games recently because they all look THE SAME. I have stuck with DoD: S for 3 years. Best FPS I've played in a long time. CoD4 was good for the first couple months, but it became extremely slacking right after. TF2, same thing: it's so boring unless you have a bunch of friends playing or in a match/skirmish.

I still see myself playing the original Dooms on the zDoom engine from time to time. Stick it on ultra-violence and see how far you get :P . It is so much easier with KBM lol. I never got used to using the arrow keys.

The original Doom was so much fun to sit around our respective pads and log on to each others machine using Dos and a Dial-up connection. Then co-op and drink beer and telephone each other. We've come a long way baby!



About Doom 4 - they are not going to have any digital download method. I don't buy any games now unless they are available digitally.

Considering a few games have been released EARLY due to this.. its a great move on their behalf.
