Doom 3 was bloody scary, *if* you played it in a dark room and its dark lighting worked well. I played it when i was ironically living in my mother in laws basement. Typically at night when it was pitch black. It was a scary game then. But the maps where a lot more plain and linear than the doom 1 & 2 brethren.

Yes there is. Drag is *ALWAYS* proportional to mass/weight. So no matter what, a plane that gets lighter as it goes will use less "fuel" than one that stays the same weight or worse gains weight. Think of it as a range penalty on electric flight. So batteries would need to be *better* than jet fuel for energy density.
