Doesnt the game have its own adjustable setting for brightness. There
may be an updated driver from nvidea or LG

This particular monitor gets pretty good reviews all round for a lower
priced one. Contrast ratio 2000:1....unlikely that darkness of the images is
going to be an issue. Very few complaints in many reviews. I'd tend to go
along with the previous poster and suggest that it's got to be something on
your end rather than the monitor. Try checking your connection.

Personally I find that most first pesron shooters, Doom 3 et al, are
unplayable in daylight no matter what kind of monitor is used, although you
can crank up the brightness and gamma within the game itself.
These games are meant to be dark. The inability to see the images clearly,
and how cartoonish they are no matter what your video card, is a part of the
game design.
Settings you cahnge in the game control panel will apply only to the game.
Any settings you change on the monitor or in the video driver are global and
will apply to any program.
You can create different monitor profiles with a calibration device and with
the Nvida control panel although I would not recommend it.

Did you adjust the contrast? On some monitors, you set the dark tones
where they should be with the brightness, then adjust the light tones
with the contrast.
