There are usually 'gamma' settings in the video settings for a lot of games. You need to increase this setting.

You dont say what system you are running...I am assuming that you are running win/xp and if so this has been known to happen. I used to have this problem and found on most game sites that there is a patch to download or a script to add to the games software that will clear resolve this dark picture syndrome

RE: GL games to dark on nvidia cards.

Open GL games are frequently darker than Direct 3D, if a lot nicer to look at.

Tweaking the gamma properites in the game is best answer.

If your playing quake 1 (which is far superior to any other) you need to download a separate programme to do it, a lot of games have similar tricks...

I used too have that problem, until I got a decent semi decent monitor - Proview 19inch £150 from PC *spit* World.

Now I have no brightness issues, in any game.
