Quake 4/Doom 3

Two games running on the same engine with the same linearity.
But don't just press Quake 4, cause this is quakeone.com. Think first.

Doom 3 had this aspect of horror, claustrophobia and etc. Almost every level was too dark to view properly, without the infamous flashlight. There are also these "First Encounter" scenes for almost each monster, like the Imp coming out of some shaft, a Pinky jumping over a ledge and banging on the door between you and it and the Mancubus appearing out of this huge pipe. Like any Doom game, it has its gore, but IMO : Mainly with the maps not the models. (Dissolving demons and corpses, that vanish into red vapour). Also, the chainsaw, the ridiculously loud chainsaw. The in-game story is really fascinating, now that you can also hear what other NPCs in the game think of this whole "operation". While it doesn't have much of that military aspect, its still fun as Hell!

Quake 4 revolved around more on action in the battlezone, with what those soldiers beside you during times, vehicular combat, etc. Set in the Strogg universe (why id, why) tells the story of Kane's one heck of tale. Shot down on Stroggos, the first you see, is that giant red ugly bastard with its fear inducing cry *shudders*. Fighting off some basic Strogg, Kane regroups. The damned radio though. Anyway, there seems to be pistol as your base weapon with infinite ammo... Well it is more military. The outdoor maps have a nice look, but the inside ones are fucking crazy, but then again its Stroggos. While its more military, it has some very nasty gore not for the faint of heart, remember the Medical Facility? Or that giant bloated digester thing... Which dies by exploding its stomach? Of course you do! The story is OK I guess, but felt like something Halo CE: do this... did that... and this... done... one more... holy shit, plot twist!... do this instead... run... etc. But it was gorier, and I like that.

Now don't just press "Quake 4" cause "I like it" or " its Quake man". Give a reason!
Same for Doom 3.

EDIT: Which one do you PREFER?

I'll be honest, it's hard for me to pick because I thought both were garbage :/

I hate this chapter in id's history. At least Quake 4 came with Quake 2.

I remember getting quake 4 with my dad for the 360 so we had something to do while I was staying with him for a couple of weeks=

both games arent bad imo, they're ok games.

doom3 i like to re-visit once every few years. it was dark and slow and creepy, but i like those kinda games too.

i enjoy playing doom3 on nightmare where just a few shots take you down.
turns it into a slow and tense corridor shooting where you gotta be fast or be dead

.

quake4.... it was alright, it just felt rather bland and generic, and i absolutely despise that military barking.
i pick up it once every few years but mostly i drop it again before getting very far

.

doom3 i kinda like actually, quake4.... was kinda meh.
both games are kinda generic and very similar, but i much prefer the dark horror-ish feel of doom3 over the generic cyborgs and annoying military barking from quake4

so doom3 is definitely better imo

Like them both but Doom3 wins for me.

Quake4 is pushed further down the list if you include Prey and Wolfenstein.

Disliked both. ID went horribly wrong during the creation of both games. I won't vote as I dislike them both equally.

I liked D3. Recently played through the expansion again.

Q4 was a mediocre game imo. I barely managed to play through the Q4 SP and never considered to play it a 2nd time after I finished it. It's the only Quake which I do not have installed atm, and I will most likely never install it again.
