Valve knows HL2 is gonna be a POS game that will fade quickly among gamers; by the time Doom 3 comes out, no one will remember that FPS game for noobs...

Now we know why Valve felt the need to "package" its new game with ATI video cards...

ID Software never packaged its games with Nvidia cards...because ID Software games sell well on their own...

[ :wink: ]No Eden, he's right! [/ :wink: ] Yesterday I visited Plante Half-Life about a dozen times yesterday seeing if the HL2 Benchmark will be released because I'm so enthusiastic about seeing how much the game is going to suck!

Don't be too harsh, guys.

Maximus bought an FX card and now is trying to convince himself that it was a good idea. It's the only hope he has.

Just play along.

What's this Doom 3 you speak of, and why would it have an ID?

I think your SuperEGO is writing cheques your brain can't cash.

Run along is right!

Would you want your software packaged with current nv hardware?

You've got me cracking up dude! There's no way 'd want a software bundled with an nvidia card, NOOO WAY! IT't simply out of the question.

Captain Obvious sees an amusing situation where a copy of doom3 is advertised as "Buy DOOM3 and get a free FX5900ultra"!

LOL, it'd be like a testimonial benchmark to test "Worst Case Scenario".
