''Doom 3'' is a 2004 FirstPersonShooter, for both the PC and Xbox. Despite its name, it's not a sequel to the original VideoGame/{{Doom}} games, as much as a reboot. It has a darker tone then the rest of the series, with aspects of SurvivalHorror.

An expansion pack called ''Resurrection of Evil'' was released in 2005, and takes place 2 years after the original story. In 2012, id Software released a ''BFG Edition'', which includes a remastered and slightly retooled version of the original ''Doom 3'' game (with an armor-mounted flashlight replacing the original's controversial flashlight system, and more ammo), ''Resurrection of Evil'', an all-new mini-campaign called ''The Lost Mission'' (consisting mostly of cut content), and ''Ultimate Doom'' and ''Doom II'', as well as the ''No Rest for the Living'' expansion that was developed for ''Doom II'''s Xbox Live Arcade release, making for a very packed ''Doom'' experience.

* ArtificialBrilliance: The enemy's combat A.I. is very simple, but their path-finding A.I. is actually remarkably well-done; if you use an elevator or ladder to escape from a charging enemy, they can actually circle around the entire map to make their way to your new location. This is only noticeable if you go out of your way to toy with the A.I., however.

* GameMod: Aside from stuff like the Duct Tape Mod, there are a Total Conversion or two. One of the most well known, ''The Dark Mod'', uses the game's engine to modernize ''VideoGame/ThiefTheDarkProject'' (well, it used to, until the mod became a standalone fangame).

* ShortRangeShotgun: Slightly subverted by the Super Shotgun. Though still short ranged, it's actually a bit more accurate than the regular shotgun.

* SawedOffShotgun: The Super Shotgun you find in Master Sergeant Kelly's office has a noticeably short barrel for what is supposed to be a hunting shotgun.
* ShortRangeShotgun: Same as the main game and extended to the Super Shotgun (tho twice the amount of pellets fired extended the lethal range a little).
