Same Here. I am really fed up with these games that have been reconfigured for newer opperating systems and then fail to work. Had the same problem with Mass Effect.

1. Go to the DOOM BFG directory in Steam. Typically the path is C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\DOOM 3 BFG Edition

2. Right click on the file executable DOOM3BFG.EXE and create a shortcut to desktop. On Windows 7 it would be under right click, SEND TO, and then DESKTOP (CREATE SHORTCUT).

3. Once you have created a shortcut on your desktop, right click on it and choose PROPERTIES. In the target field, add "+set r_fullscreen 0" to the end of the target path (no quotes). There should be a space right before the +. Your target line should now look similiar to the following:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\DOOM 3 BFG Edition\Doom3BFG.exe" +set r_fullscreen 0

NOTE: You should be able to input "3" instead of "0" in the above command line, which for most users immediately allowed them full screen access to Doom 3 BFG. Other Steam users have mentioned that using "2" or"4" worked in their case, "4" being the most common after "3". Also, the "+set r_fullscreen 0" can also be placed directly in the Steam launch options for your game (minus the quotes). Special thanks to Darth Guybrush for pointing this out. Steam launch options can be accessed by right clicking on Doom 3 BFG in your Steam library and choosing "properties". It will be titled "Set Launch Options".

4. This trick worked on the old Doom 3 and luckily it still works with the BFG edition. Theoretically you should be able to change the "0" in the fullscreen command I just mentioned to a "3", and bypass all the CFG editing altogether though I haven't tested that. I don't see why it shouldn't work though. At the very least, with the "0" it will allow you to run it in windowed mode and make the fixes listed above. Hope this works for those of you unable to run the game to create a Saved Games directory.

@cpt.denver just a hint for you: DeviceString: Intel(R) HD Graphics - do you think this can run doom3? i don´t think you meet the minimum specs with that. good advice...get a real graphicscard...but i guess you own a laptop...
edit: and i think you have some error in you *.cfg -> "r_fullscreen reset from 3 to 1 because mode list failed"

and for the others having problems. maybe try starting in compatibility-mode (win8 could be the problem...).
another guess would be that "couldn't exec D3BFGConfig.cfg couldn't exec autoexec.cfg" has something to do with administration rights. sometimes games have problems (or better windows has problems) when they are installed on the systems-partition...
