Once a week - I write them down and hang them on my wall.

Once a month - I print them out and then - while having a dry sherry - me and my family analyse it.

Every second sunday of the fifth month starting from August. I like consistancy :) Oh and it has to be a leap year.

Never! My frag count is so high, I just HAVE to play on 1600x1200! (time to get rid of my S3 vid card)

I don't play single player.. I 0wnz0r online, d00ds !
379
39.3%

Pappy-R: I think I did it once on a day off just to see how fast I could fly through the SP game.
Fargo: I like keeping that running tally. It makes me feel like a bigger man.
mynx: B
Hellchick: Bah, I never play single player!
Demonwench: Why change stats when it's already perfection?
shaithis: You can reset the stats?
Ash: It's been so long since I've looked at those stats I forgot they were there.

Do you like Quake art and music? [submitted by Cottser]

Pappy-R: I love Quake art especially. That's where my wallpapers always come from.
Fargo: Dude, some of the Quake art I've seen people do rocks. Check out GameArt sometime. :)
mynx: O
Hellchick: I like the art better than the music. My favorite piece in the game is the Jesus crucifixion statue.
Demonwench: I've seen lots of cool art, but I don't go huntin' for 'em.
shaithis: I love good art. If it's game-related, hooray. If it's not game related, hooray. Craig Mullins is my hero. :)
Ash: Definately, Quake related anything rules. Mixing in art makes it even better.

If you could have any of the Q3 weapons for REAL right now which would it be? [submitted by Asteron]

Shotgun - That laser sight is trés kewl

Rail Gun - I've always wanted to try shooting satellites from space
487

Rocket Launcher - I'm gonna hang this classic on my wall !!

Lightning Gun - Ha, I can power my whole neighborhood with this thing's power cells

BFG - Just in case I ever want to invade a small country
251
26.4%

Pappy-R: I think I'd take the Rail to knock off some of those crows in the corn field I can see from my office window. "Birdy go PoP!"
Fargo: Okay, so the lightning gun breaks just about every law of physics, so the scientific side of me wants it in order to dismantle it and further thr human cause. On the other hand, ralguns are way cooler. I want to carve my name in the solar panels of the new space station.
mynx: O
Hellchick: Railgun. Physics goodness. I keep saying I'm going to make one, but I never do.
Demonwench: I rather like the lethality of the railgun but nothing beats the small explosions of the rocket launcher. BOOM!!
shaithis: I'd have to take the rail. While the rocket is appealing, I'd more than likely end up killing myself with it. With the railgun, I can safely be assured of only killing others.
Ash: I can't help but picture the ISS spinning and careening to a firey death in the atmosphere after Fargo clipped it on a solar panel.

Somethin' else, like gamepad or joystick

1.4%

Pappy-R: Logitech has been my weapon of choice for years now. No funky opticals for me either. The Razor Mamba has my curiosity peaked though.
mynx: B
Hellchick: Logitech Wingman Gaming Mouse! That's mine, anyway.
Fargo: Boomslang just doens't do it for me. Love the name; Like the concept; hate the mouse.
Demonwench: I use the thingie that's attached to my 'puter. It's got buttons on it...and a wheel!
shaithis: Optical. Optical, optical, optical. I made the switch about 8 months ago, and I will never switch back. Oh, and Razer mice suck!
Ash: I would have gotten a boomslang, but I need three mouse buttons... so I have a wingman gaming mouse.

What are graphics settings???

I have a Geforce 2 ultra, so i just put all the settings on HIGH.

If you selected option 4 I don't like you.
339
35.5%

Pappy-R: I can have the settings up pretty high and still lock down the 125 FPS sweet spot pretty easily, so I get some Q3A candy.
mynx: I
Hellchick: I like a happy medium between optimized for fast performance without making it look like ass. So my texture detail is set to about medium, Geometry is set to low, and I have simple items set. When I first get a game like Q3A, I want to enjoy the beauty of it, but I've had it for more than a year now, so I'm more into making it run fast.
Fargo: Quality when I play single player (uh, although, I can't really remember the last time I played SP), but definitely speed in multiplayer. You can't be a railGod without it.
Demonwench: I really don't care as long as I can see the person stepping into my sights.
shaithis: Haven't checked my frame rate in years. Actually, I don't really do much tweaking at all, other than maybe amping the resolution a bit. I just use whatever the defaults are, and play. Laziness rules.
Ash: Mud people. Though, r_picmip at 3... > than that and the square rocket explosions get to me.

Yes, and I use it sensibly. Like a toothbrush.

Hellchick: Mynx is an evil, evil woman.
Pappy-R: DAMN! We needed one more question so Mynx could have done "BOOBIES". One boobie is half the fun.
mynx: E
Fargo: Hah hah, Mynx said "Boobie" instead of "Boobies!" This'll be the first poll ever that doesn't have the word "Boobies" in it! -- or -- wait. Damn.
Demonwench: Oh come now. Would it really be a poll if there were no boobies in it?
shaithis: Yes, when you read the PQ Poll comments, you know you're getting quality. Like me answering only in Godfather quotes, or Mynx spelling out the word "Boobie" over multiple questions.
Ash: Boobie? Yes, and I use it sensibly. Like a toothbrush.
