Quake 1 is EASILY my favorite of the series, as well. I rank it up there with my all-time top FPS games. I actually just played some single player the other day I use the DarkPlaces mod but I dont ramp up the GFX too much I like to keep some of the old school look intact. I seem to play through Duke 3D and Q1 every year or so. The medieval/future setting of Q1 is truly a thing of beauty.Am I the only person who thinks quake 1 is better than all of the sequels? The dark gloomy feel, the moans of the skeleton zombies, the nailgun and mine/bomb gun all make the game super fun. Plus, rocket jumps!
I was personally surprised by all the Borderlands 2 recommendations. It is a great game, and definitely better than the first, but I wouldn't exactly consider it fast paced on the level of Quake or RotT. Even if you ignore all the side missions (which is hard to do) it can be a bit slow with the "collect x" missions. They did improve the fast travel, and when there are firefights, it gets real intense.OK guys, I got Borderlands 2 from a friend who bought it on sale on Steam. We'll see how it goes!
Not a single player game, but I'm still very glad you mentioned this! No, I didn't know about it. I'll definitely check it out - looks like my kind of game!
i politely dissentYou aren't the only one.
Quake 1 = masterpiece
Quake 2 = really great
Quake 3 = shite
Quake 4 = meh
Just to add my two cents re: Q3...i politely dissent
q1 = masterpiece
q2 = toy guns
q3 = excellent multiplayer game
q4 = redundant from the day it was released
OP - i'd give my vote to Hard Reset; try to ignore the foggy story, that game is a lot of fun and visually impressive.
I also liked Singularity; but that might be a tad too realistic.
