Is the game supposed to be so dark I just started and the janitor i could barely see him till i upped the gamma to around 85 or so.. is this normal?
ATI 9800 pro catalyst drivers 3.10

I felt the same way. I ran through most of the game with my light on just to see (even with gamma at 85).
I'm using 9700 Pro w/ same drivers, but I don't think that has anything to do with it. I've been through the game twice and I just think it's designed dark. Most missions seem to be at night and only the Nassif family seems to know how to turn their light switches on. :p

1. Right-click desktop>properties>settings>advanced>color
2. Click full screen 3D then hotkeys
3. Set up your hotkeys how you want (I use shift+ctrl+F7 thru F12 for increasing/decreasing contrast, brightness and gamma)
4. Hit ok, then Apply, then exit out.
5. Start the game, then start using your hotkeys to adjust the picture to your liking.
You'll need to do this each time you start the game, but you can also hotkey to save the current profile, so you can do all the adjusting with just one hotkey push. It's a pain, but you have much better control than with the in-game gamma and brightness.
BTW, I also manually adjusted the sliders in the ATI control panel and just saved that as a profile with the hotkey combo shift-ctrl-Z. It's pretty close and I usually just have to up the gamma 2 notches when I start the game.
Edit: I'm using a Radeon 9700 Pro with Cat 3.9's

I have the same problem. It's very annoying that the cutscenes when I click on the Janitor show the area in what would appear to be reasonable lighting, but when that goes back to the normal game mode, everything is absurdly dark. It's the same when talking to any NPC.
