Bought a new monitor for pc gaming. Should it look like this?

I just bought the Asus VG248QE after reading many reviews stating it was excellent for pc gaming. While it appears to be pretty damn good, I'm a little thrown off by how dark scenes look in a few games I've tried. I also can't seem to recall if they looked like this on my old monitor also or if this is a symptom of the new one.

Here are a few shots I took. The first image is from the game Outlast, the second is from Battlefield 3, the third is an in-game screenshot of BF3 so you can compare it to what it looks like on the monitor.
I'm running these games at Ultra/Max settings at the monitor's maximum resolution.
This is some sort of dithering issue, correct? This review says the dithering is fine and doesn't note anything out of the ordinary: http://pcmonitors.info/reviews/asus-vg248qe
Is this a symptom of the type of monitor this, a setting I should be toggling in the monitor or game's settings, etc.? Thanks!
