Speaking of firefight -- F.E.A.R really has me hooked.
I did enjoy the first part of Quake4 and plan to pick it up again because I love the movement/controls of an iD game. A bit too much of a starship troopers ripoff for me, but still quite enjoyable and they really nailed the Quake2 environment -- the colors alone were spot on and took me back to the day.
Anyhow, I agree less hype is good.
