I was reading a local gaming magazine (PC Powerplay) today, in particular one of the regular columns. It's the sort of thing written by a jaded gaming journalist fed up with the tripe that passes as "games" in todays market. In this particular one, the writer is ripping into iD for their lack of anything really - especially in regards to Doom 3. Normally I'd not really care about whatever some old peanut has to say about modern gaming, but this one got my attention. Sure iD has had some very special input into the realm of PC gaming over the past decade, but why do they (id) get so much attention today? Doom 3 is still myth. We've had almost no concrete material (screenshots, interviews, gameplay movies) about this game in the three years it has been in development. What we have seen has been good, but not really all that interesting (wow (!) a lighting engine (!) ). I watched one of the HL2 gameplay movies today and it totally blew me away - I mean totally. The level of environment interaction was astounding, the graphics top notch. The Halo 2 preview did the same for me. I'm struggling to remember what I've seen about Doom 3... So my question is this: given the quality of so many upcomming titles, do you really care anymore about whatever crap id comes up with? Have id lost the "connection" with us gamers by keeping us in the dark with this "when it's ready" bollox? Are you fed up with id? Discuss.
