I love id games. I've spent serious amounts of time in Quake1 and Quake3. I played Doom 3, I liked it at the time. I The in-game GUI interaction worked out better than I ever would have thought. I'd also heard a lot of people praise FarCry, I thought they were just being gaming sissies. I mean, it's not even an id game. I've finally got around to playing FarCry. The voice acting is awful -- Doom 3's was much, much better. But whatever, I'm having a lot more fun playing FarCry than I did Doom 3. You have Doom 3-like stages interspersed with outdoor tromps and anticipation, across the map sniping, and fun, well done vehicles. *shrug* maybe my tastes are just changing, but my opinion of Doom 3 gets worse as more time lapses since I played it. I probably gave it a 10 at first (seriously pretty), then a 9, then an 8. Right now I'm thinking it's a 7. But I am glad for Doom 3, it was the impetus for me to get a new machine and FarCry looks awesome on it ... mmmm grass.
