Most of you haven't bought Ground Zero ... why not?

Joost: Bought it, loved it. Saved me the effort of finding 20-30 quality addon levels with new monsters and items on the Net.
Gestalt: Must .. leave .. chair .. open door .. no .. too much effort. That, and the fact that the last Quake II Mission Pack I played through once in single player and then committed to the big recyclebin in the sky.

With Half-Life, Shogo, Sin, Klingon .. all due out before Christmas, do you still see yourself playing Quake II next year?

14.5%

Joost: I'm tempted to say no.
Void: QuakeWorld forever!
Gestalt: I can see myself still playing Q2CTF a year from now, but I'll probably be playing lots of Half-Life and TF2 unless Valve did something horrible to the network code.

$2001+ ?!?

13.2%

Joost: I boughth a Monster 1 ages ago. That's about it.
Void: $300 for a Righteous 3D... top of the line!
Gestalt: Quake asked for more frames per second. How could I say no? $600 for a new motherboard, case, CPU and memory. Looks like we've got some real hardware junkies out there though... A quarter of you have spent over $1000 just to improve your framerate?

Do you think it's important for a company to release a shareware / demo version of their game before the full version?

Of course! I won't buy it without playing the demo first

Of course not! I trust magazine / website reviews

Void: Demos kick ass... especially that Shogo demo.
Gestalt: Nice to see most of you agree with me... Ideally companies should release demos of their games BEFORE the full version hits the shelves. *cough* Unreal *ahem*. Unless the game sucks, the demo can only help you sell the game. Kudos to Ritual (Sin) and Monolith (Shogo) for releasing cool public demos recently...

Do the satanic symbols in Doom, Quake etc bother you?

No! There should be MORE satanic symbols

What satanic symbols?

12.5%

Joost: People that are bothered by them, bother me.
Void: I voted that there should be more... but I sure didn't expect so many people to agree. Wow.
Gestalt: I think they add to the atmosphere. I want MORE pentagrams, inverted crosses, crucified disembowelled zombies... Sorry, what was that? Back in the padded cell? Aw...

18%

Joost: Every once and a while. Doesn't everyone?
Void: Camping is a dirty business, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do.
Gestalt: I mostly play CTF these days, and "camp" in my base. Anyone who has a problem with that needs their head reading... "Camping" is part of CTF and team games.

Joost: *shrug*
Void: Hmm... I don't think that's ever happened to me, actually. :P
Gestalt: If someone takes me down with a really class shot, they deserve congratulations. If they do it 20 times in five minutes I get fed up of dying and find another server... ;-)

Joost: My attention span is limited. A few hours perhaps.
Void: Back in the early days of QuakeWorld and CTF, I once played for about 4 hours until 3:00 am. That rocked.
Gestalt: I don't get as much time to play as I'd like to, but I did pull an all-nighter a couple of months back - played about 8 hours of Q2CTF and got to bed at 7am... There's something weird about going to bed just as the sun is coming up.
