I think that there is a rule that says, there has to be a playable version of the game to be nominated. And I heard that there was a playable version of DOOM III behind doors.

...I personally liked the older Doom games. So I am awaiting this one. The game should play like the older ones. But this time, there will be more of a horror atomosphere. And the movie that they showed at E3 was all in real-time! But the game won't be out till sometime in 2003.

Judging from the video that was leaked showing gameplay of Doom III, I hardly believe it will play ANYTHING like the old doom games at all. At most, thre were about 3-4 enemies on screen at once, and while the game dos have a creepier feel about it, it feels more like Resident Evil than Doom, IMHO.

What IS like the old Doom games is the setting, that is, gate to hell is open, creepy crap is crawling out of it and one sole marine has to close it. I am all for it, it seems incredibly creepy, and I woudlnt mind such an experience on PC - there aren't many creepy games out at the moment.

The only game that came close to playing like Doom did, was Serious Sam - it was a lot of hectic shooting and killing up to 100 enemies at one time on screen. What made Doom cool was this hectic shootemup feeling, walking into a dark hall with a lit pedestal holding a f**koff huge weapon that, as soon as you picked it up, would have a dozen cyberdemons and about 50 imps spawn behind you. Serious Sam was a lot like that, but most FPS games seem to be going for the "less enemies on screen at once" approach. Must be the limitations of current game engines, and I hope the Doom III engine doesnt have those limitations either.

So many nomination for so many half-done games!

they could at least said "Most promising game of the show" or something

E3 games, are like movie trailer....

The trailers might look good, but that doesn't mean that the final product will be!

Looks as if it's a good time to be a PC gamer. I wasn't really surprised that Doom III won though.

Eh, I'm just happy that Zelda won best console game.

Most people expected Nintendo games to get the best console game awards. So if Getaway got runner-up. I'd say that thats going to be a really good game. I originally expected Metriod Prime to get Best of Console.
