It should be a very good year for gaming. All games are getting an overhaul and the higher resolution combined with the power of directx 11 and big screens makes having a higher end gaming rig more acceptable for the living room.
I can understand why it's taking them so long - they're building a new game engine from the ground up after all. If they perfect it then we'll probably see a slew of games using the licensed engine, which could be fun.
As far as the actual game goes, I'm not all that excited about it. ID haven't been on the ball in terms of gameplay in the last few years in my opinion. Doom 3 was a letdown compared to the original Doom and Doom 2 - they changed the gameplay too much although I've heard that Doom 4 will be more like the originals.
The game I'm waiting for some news about the most is Half Life 2: Episode 3 or even Half Life 3.

I thought Quake 4 was quite good fun. I wish it had an expansion pack. It was everything Doom 3 should have been in my opinion. I really hope they bring out a sequel to the Quake 2, Quake 4 saga.[/citation]
I can respect that; but somehow it would seem in keeping with Id’s post-apocalyptic nightmare obsession.

I don't like the graphics of games made in OpenGL they look so old tech like games made 10 years ago, the outdoor graphics looks the most terrible with such bad lighting compared to DX games, let alone comparing them with HDR DX games you can't even compare such things that's how bad OpenGL lighting is
I was hoping it would be Q1 2011, oh well. The game looks incredible though. I couldn't believe how gorgeous the game looked from the E3 trailer and how smooth it ran considering it was running on a console. I would expect the PC version will be that much more stunning. Next to Portal 2 this is my most anticipated game of 2011.
