IMO, this is probably the best quake ever released. I'd like to see it remade. How about you?

I'm with you! I still play it once in a while. IMHO, it's more fun than newer FPSs, know what I'm sayin'?

The partial remake of Tombraider went over well, so I am all for a Q2 remake, if done right.

One, the best quake ever was original quake, not that pathetic effort (comparatively speaking) called Q2, and two, look what happened to Doom remake, it sucked donkey's balls...

There are already some decent modified q2 engines out there like q2 evolved....more then anything there's just a need for some talented texture artist, modelers, and level designers to redo the in-game content to acceptable levels.

Q1 was OK, but it just seemed so hokey with it's goblins and chainsaw wielding zombies :p

Q2 was pretty awesome indeed. Quake 4 isn't bad by any means, though - they definitely got some good monsters in there. Quake 2 did have a certain "feel" to it, though.

ya man, Q1 was the best. that's how I learned how to install TCP/IP protocol on my school's library network and played 8 player shoot out. then we start recording it and make movies out of it. ... so fun.


Q2 was just so-so. didn't have the magic of Q1.

Wasn't Quake 2 already remade? Quake 4 is pretty much the exact same game. Much like Doom 3, Quake 4 had severely gimped controls where bunny hopping didn't work and you had to hold a button to run.

edit: oh yeah and Quake 2 was better than Quake 1. Why did they make Q1 so you had to hold a button to be able to use the mouse to look around? I had mouse2 bound to "+mlook" and I had to hold that button the entire game. That's total bullsh|t.

For games like that, I always jammed a quarter into my keyboard so the button would stick...

Quake 2 Evolved was an update to the graphics, menus, hud, weapons, sounds, etc of Q2. It's pretty cool - if you're a big Q2 fan.

Looks like they've moved on, however.

Remake Tribes2 before Quake2. I wet myself thinking what Raindance would look like with todays engines...and yes, pun intended.

It had a Gothic look, which was extremely unique for the time. Much more unique than Quake2 - Quake4's generic technological layout and enemies. I don't know why Id ever ditched the unique Gothic look of Quake1.

Give me stained glass windows, marble floors, zombies and a rocket launcher.

quake 2 community made it stand out from the rest. the mods, the maps and players.

first online fps i played. had aol and wouldn't have traded it for anything, even with my 400-500 ping.

HPB ftw!:D

I still have a bad taste in my mouth from Doom3. For that reason I voted "no - don't ruin it." After the hours and hours I played Doom2 I expected a lot more out of the remake. For some reason I couldn't really get into Quake 4 either. It just felt too much like running through a maze and didn't hold my attention after HL2 and Far Cry. The Q4 graphics seemed kind of lame in comparison too.

Quake II felt "heavy" to me. The movements were slow, the maps were bulky and boxy. I loved the game but not as much as Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight which I was playing at the same time. Jedi Knight was much faster paced and felt lighter, more open and was more fun to me.

ROFLMWAHAHA...at you holding down that button for the duration of the game.

Dude just bring down the console and type "+mlook". Tada! Done.

If you bind a "+mlook" command to a mouse button it will simply execute the "-mlook" command when you release the button.
