Low expectations, twitch shooters (my favorite) are dinosaurs.

Never been a fan of the Quake series. 3 was fun when it first came out but other than that it's been crap.

Quake 1 and 2 were great.

No not at all. I thought the graphics at the time were impressive but the gameplay was lacking. I think people are looking back on them with nostalgia glasses.

Well, no. Secondly, when looking at any piece of art you have to have context. You dont judge Quake by today's standard. You place yourself in the mindset of when it was released.

Quake 2 did a lot of revolutionary things. It gets overlooked because it was surpassed by Half Life. Which is a much superior game. However, Quake 2 is still pretty solid considering.

Agreed, and the series itself got surpassed in its own time by Unreal Tournament (IMO), but still, as it stands, within their own timeframe, Quake 1, 2, and Arena were pretty badass.

UT never surpassed Q3A. UT was the Forza to Q3A's GT status.

Q3A is a more challenging game. UT has too many one hit kill weapons. Sort of takes the skill out. Favors luck. Quake made you earn everything.

I like UT though. Just thought as a death match it was lesser. But Onslaught was amazing.
