Originally posted by JaguarOn that note, this really isn't the time to decide. It's much better to decide after the games are actually released.
Released and patched ten or fifteen times so that they actually WORK. Never judge a game by pre-release screenshots, demos, or the first few months of release (or, as I like to think of it, the final stages of beta testing.)

To me Half-Life and subsequently, Counter-Strike, had one major thing going for them--it just felt right. It's almost a smoothness to the engine and the way the game mechanics work. Whenever I play Quake(s) it feels like I'm randomly shooting my weapon hoping to get a hit. With HL you take aim and fire and boom (hopefully) he's dead.
Ok so I didn't exactly compare it with Doom but you get my point. Half Life has always had that something special that makes it better to play.
