i'm guessing HL2 won't be as fantastic as everyone thinks it will, because we've had 4 years to hype it up
just looking at the videos for it, you can tell the graphics aren't up there with Doom 3, but here's my take:
Doom 3 has excellent graphics, it has its scary and intense moments, but there's only so many times that you can grab a big health pack and know that something is going to come out at you. it gets boring pretty quickly. and as for interacting with the environment, I get to shoot some lights and watch the shadow move. Oh and I get to push a barrel around or knock over a chair. ZZZZzzzz.
HL2 sounds like it will be more fun, far from boring, and when you're done with SP - you have the whole world of MP to look forward to. We've all been playing HL mods for 5 years - that says something about the replayability and gameplay.
