I have never played Doom in my entire life, and the only reason I will actually play Doom 3 is because my brother pre-ordered the game (pff, he actually got NVidia for that, can't wait to shove HL2 in his face). I love sniping, if you ever played CS and became annoyed by those snipers who seemed to be able to snipe no matter how tough a shot is (and get called hackers at least once), that could have been me. My question is, is there any point of a sniper rifle if Doom 3. First, there are few open spaces and second, the draw distance isn't that far (at least in the screen shots). Or is a sniper rifle just Anti-Doom. PS: Can't wait to start sniping Striders.
