A Doom 3 thread that quickly turns into people saying how crappy and not that good looking it actually was, despite the praise when it was released? SHOCKER.

It was "good" looking, but even when it came out I said it was just alright.

Most of the praise came from the fact that it was, well, DOOM. Fans of the old game, rose-colored-glasses, etc.

It was fun for a pointless shoot-em-up, though it relied too much on the whole "turn off the lights and make a monster jump out of a corner/closet/shaft/etc" thing. And its dark and dreary environment hid most of what was probably impressive texture-work.

It wasn't the most fun game of the year, and a couple of other (more fun) games that year looked either as good or close to it.

I don't regret buying it, but I recently heard someone (in r/l) talking about how DOOM 3 was the best FPS of the decade... and to that I have to strongly disagree.
