Doom 3 is unnecessarily intense.
Half-life 2 isn't a patch on 1, but it's cool enough.
I actually didn't like HL2 that much. The graphics were nice, but it was....missing something. Can't really say what, but it did. Hopefully the story behind the Gman will finally be revealed in the expansion.
I'm still chewing through Doom 3, and so far I quite like it.
I take what n0e says way too seriously

Half-life was my first game and the only reason to buy a computer,HL2 is just as good and better looking.
Halflife 2 wins it i think, Doom3 seemed only to try and push everyones pc to the max, the gameplay wasnt great, and it story line seemed a little fragmented, fumbling around in the dark with a damn gun OR torch light, why cant you frikkin use both at once!? Anyways, Doom3 is my no means a terrible game, i just feel it could have been better had less of any emphasis been put on graphics and more on gameplay (which is currently reasonable but could be better). It's scary moments and inital level of suspense are greater than that of HL2 however. HL2 to me seems like a far bigger game, bigger environment, more challenges and enemies, its story line is kinda weak tho but its forgivable as it does provide a enjoyable experience never the less. Halflife 2 too me just seemed that little bit more inventive to me on the whole than Doom3 and i think that what swung it for me. The begining to HL2 is a bit shite tho, i got pissed off whizzing around on that little hover craft in them damn canals, after that tho it does get better :) In conclusion both good games but HL2 wins it for me.
My vote goes to Doom3
Like some others said, HL2 felt more like a puzzle with some big shooting moments. Doom 3 is intense and feels like a hardcore FPS.
If i had to go for storyline its HL2 hands down.
But overall its Doom3
I'm confused... how can you vote between Half-Life 2 and Doom 3? Doom 3 doesnt deserve to be in the same room with Half-Life 2... doesnt even deserve to be on the same interenet as Half-Life 2! Doom 3 didnt look that great graphicaly and had a really stupid feel. The whole game felt so restrictive..... very lame enemies, almost no story line..... I dont know how on earth this game gets a movie and Half-Life doesnt.
Half-Life 2 all the way.

HL2. Doom 3 Multiplayer is almost dead now? HL2 mods looks way more better. Nothing can beat Half-Lifes deep story and it's gameplay.. ;)

I'm not voting for HL2 because i own it, it's because i've played doom3, and it's just shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot, and then die cause it was kinda hard, then shoot some more. Half-Life 2 actually has a good story, puzzles, and better shooting. Not to mention all these mods for it.
Ahem, I think we all know who would win, HALF LIFE 2!!! I mean I played Doom 3 for awhile on my friends computer and it was yawn, boring. The multiplayer seems like it just came out of the trash. Half life 2 multiplayer is funner and moddishius. Doom 3 is for gothic people.
