I have the unfortunate habit of annoying myself to death if I dont beat a game that I buy, so I had to play through Unreal 2. Did it over the course of 2 days.
UT2k3, I'll admit it isnt as great as the original, but I still love it. I think the bot matches are a hoot. It can be just as fun (or moreso) as playing online, and you dont have to deal with any punk 15 year old kids with 'm4d sk1llz'. =)
You can change the comentators voice to a female one by downloading the official bonus packs (one from epic and cant remember the other). i think you can turn it off/turn it down too...but dont quote me on that.
On the subject of HL2, Im more excited over that than Doom3 - maybe its because i have not played Doom for soooo long. Still looking forward to it alot though.

I think you hit a good point here.
The games that hooked me from beginning to end are the games that I remember and look to find again.
For me this means almost the entire Sierra games collection from Kings Quest to Half Life.
Most of the Lucasarts games and a few D&D based RPGs Buck Rogers 1 and 2. Heroes of might and magic 1/2 And Warcraft 1-3.
I'm excited to see what HL2 is going to be like, as HL would prob have to be my favorite FPS.
But I'm honestly not expecting much, CS has made HL a huge phenomenon and theres no promise of another CS.
Things like CS are once a decade things for gaming and repeating it would probably come off as Super pacman did.
I own UT2K3 and find it extremely stupid. Fun but I'll take Q3A still, same exact thing IMO and more familiar (couldnt hurt).
I don´t care that much for Doom really, maybe I'm wrong but I don't whink it will be fun to play, sure it will look good but that's it.
Half Life on the other hand...yummie, I really look forward to that game.
Hopefully there will be loads of 'good' games built using the doom3/Half-Life 2 engine...
