Half-Life 2 Steam Preloads

Half-Life 2 Fallout (thanks GameSpot) has more news from their forums as Gabe Newell made a post yesterday indicating that today is the day Half-Life 2 assets will begin pre-loading for some customers over Steam:

HL/2 pre-load will begin tomorrow. It was ready yesterday, but we decided to use the bandwidth to get out the VST first since I get pelted with zillions of questions from people asking how their PC will run Half-Life 2.

Dude, sorry to disagree with you, but the engine (on the graphics side) doesn't look half as good as Doom 3. Maybe it's their texture choices, but everything looks washed out. Not to mention that the lighting in Doom 3 looked more realistic in my opinion. I'm not saying that DOOM3 is better, I don't even want to go that way with this post. And we all know the PHYSICS engine in HL2 is what's REALLY going to rock. But I'm a little put off by the graphics, considering how much time this thing has been in development. About as put off by how little plot/character involvement there was in Doom 3.
I'm guessing HL2 won't be as fantastic as everyone thinks it will, because we've had 4 years to hype it up and it will most likely be a let down. I guess we'll mos tlikely have to see what other game companies can do with the engine after release and until then, I'll probably just play WoW.
In any case, WHO CARES about CS:Source. It's the same 5 year old game with updated graphics. That the same thing as CSZ, which everyone HATED. So why claim CS:Source will be awesome . . . its like spraypainting a Pinto with pretty little multicolor, $50 a gallon paint . . . in the end it's still a god damn Pinto . . and your the f@g driving it.
