They each have their own uses. Personally I like the Source Engine more. It's heavily modified Havok physics engine is great for the creative uses that VALVe puts it through and texturing is awesome. It's not so great for dark and gloomy games like Doom 3 or Prey, but it's awesome.

Haha, yeah. When I get my Xbox 360, I'll definately get Doom for the Xbox Live Arcade. It's an all-time classic shooter that revolutionized the gaming world and the look of shooters. Despite the old pixelated textures and funky AI, it never gets old. Unfortunately, id Software has announced they're no longer contiuning any sequels or continuation games for the Doom franchise. They're looking for more IP's so expect to see other games like Enemy Territory: Quake Wars instead. Speaking of which...that game is awesome! They've got me as a customer! Hahah, screw EA. Activision deserves my money.

Doom has been around since I started playing video games in general. defiantly a big bummer to see something like that go.

You never know. id Software might decide to resurrect the IP in the future.

Open up CS Source, crank the AF to 16x, and take a screen shot in a similar spot to where one of these were taken at the A bomb site

Well between Doom and Doom II, there wasn't as much of a gap. They took a while to start Doom 3 though. I guess internal debate?
