Assuming limitless gaming machine horsepower and not a lot of desire to play deathmatch (I like playing alone):

Halflife 2, Doom 3, or Quake 4?

Half-Life 2. Absolutely no question about it. No other game has made me CHEER out loud while playing it. You can ask the roomies what my reaction has been.

The original halflife actually scared me so much that I stopped playing it. I dunno why, I was bein weird. That was a long time ago. I think I've got some more balls these days. :P

Isn't HL2 made with the D3 engine? Which came out first? (Was it the other way around?)

Doom 3 came out first and they're on totally separate engines.

Doom 3 is a good game -- creepy, well-balanced... but it's slow, and all the environments are the same.

Half-Life 2 incorporates the physics engine into the game in nearly everything you do, the challenges and type of gameplay changes all the time, the environments are photo-realistic at times, and... oh, it's just so much good. It's easily the best shooter I've ever played. I just got through with a huge segment in which you race on a waterboat through canals and giant drainage pipes, using the physics to your advantage to ramp over obstacles, while pursued every step of the way by deadly hunter choppers.

Btw ... HL2 was $49 at Best Buy. It's $19.99 elsewhere, so I was just as well paying $44.99 for B&W2, which JUST came out ... vs. paying that much for a game that's been out for a WHILE, despite how good it is. I'll snag HL2 later for the lesser price. I looked at it in the store and it does look really cool. I just realized that B&W2 offered some other elements that I . erm.. like.. hehe. Plus I could use something less than a FPS for a change.
