Void: Wolf3D, keyboard style!
Joost: When i was young we didn't have FPS games on the computer, laddy! We had to go out and shoot small furry animals in the forest! Ach, my back hurts!
Fargo: Overwhelmingly Old Skool. Wow.
Gestalt: Since Wolf3D, though my first real memory is playing Doom shareware over my school network...

Void: Nope... might have some cool stuff, but wouldn't be able to play on most 'net servers.
Joost: Uhm. Last time i upgraded to a beta version, hardly any servers ran it.
Fargo: A beta of a patch to a point release... Whee!
Gestalt: Nope - I wouldn't touch it with a 20 foot poll, especially as none of the servers I play on here in the UK have upgraded to it yet... We've been getting mails all week asking how to downgrade back to v3.17. ;-)

You mean Quake isn't real life?
498
20.8%

Void: "So *that* is what it feels like to fall off a cliff! Neat!" -- that would rule.
Joost: Running around. Too much time is spent getting from point A to B.
Fargo: C'mon. Wouldn't it be nice to go into a job interview with quad?
Gestalt: Damn, and I thought this was all there was to life... You mean she didn't respawn after I pushed her under the lorry? Shit...

What's your favourite position in CTF?

I never play CTF
336
14%

Void: Haven't I heard this question before?
Joost: The guy blindly storming the base and getting killed 3 seconds after getting the flag with noone to defend me. I'm good at that.
Fargo: *blush* Oh, you mean in CTF?
Gestalt: Depends which map I'm playing... In McKinley Revival I set up a camp fire on one of the balconies and sit there toasting marshmellows with my railgun and BFG to hand in case some hapless fool makes a dash to grab my flag. But in Capture Showdown I got rhythm and go offense the whole time, usually scoring around half my team's captures... Depends what mood takes me.

Do you think games like Quake encourage violence?

AnswerVotes

Hell yes! You lookin' at me? Huh?

Who cares - it's fun!

35.7%
Why can't we all just be friends?
184
7.6%
Hell no! It releases my violence
1180
49.2%

Joost: They encourage playing violent computer games, yes.
Void: Other than the constant dreams of killing and violent deaths... no.
Fargo: If I had the quad from question 5, I might be a little more violent...
Gestalt: When I'm pissed off at something I'll usually just fire up GameSpy and drop in on a server for a few hours. By the end I'm usually feeling much less homicidal than I was when I started... Maybe I'm just being desensitized to the violence? Nah...
Hey - what the f*ck are you looking at? You want some? You want some? Come here and say that dammit!
