Quake is such a weird series, half story based corridor shooter, half arena shooter.

I hope we return to the strogg campaign and also something that ties the "plot" of the original game and Quake 3 in with the primary story.

They should leave the single player campaign to Doom. Quake was also best as a multi-player shooter. Even back in the Quake World days.

But for all intents and purposes, Quake Champions *IS* Quake 5.

Fond memories of destroying the "Big Gun" planetary defenses in Q2. My dad and I played together, no mouse, so one of us moved, the other looked up and down and pulled the trigger. It was super great bonding actually. It really made the investment in that Voodoo 2 look worthwhile.

We played several games this way. Deus Ex was a lot of fun, too. By then we had moved to one player running the mouse the other the keyboard.

The final boss battle of HL ended in multiple defeats, a dead MS optical mouse and my Dad declaring "I won't play with you again." Sigh. An end of an era because teenager me raged at that final stupid battle. I finished HL sometime after HL2 came out by myself and my dad didn't really play video games with me again for a decade.

Now we are back to rocking Borderlands, etc. We each have our own avatar though, obviously. :p

I would definitely buy a story based Quake :D I would expect a solid amount of cheese but superb movement and gun play. Aliens, not demons invading, of course!

I'd like to see a revival of a capture the flag game for Quake (or Doom). I had a lot more fun with that than either the single player or multiplayer death matches. Capture the flag with the grappling hook mod was the best.

Man, I miss expert CTF from Quake World. By far and away the best CTF mode I have played in any game.

Doesn't Bethesda/Zenimax now own the IP through ID? I cant imagine a Doom like revival being any good, its a much different style of game meant for hard core mouse/keyboard players.

The problem with Quake 3 is there was no bot protection that actually worked! Aimbots were rampant!
Not when it first came out. The bots came quite a bit later. When Quake 3 first launched the anti cheat worked pretty decently. You gotta remember its been 21 years since it came out. Which makes me feel so old. Especially since I played Quake World for many years before Quake 3 ever came out. I didn't play Quake 2 as it was not considered a competitive shooter. The skill cap for Quake World was quite a bit higher, especially on the expert servers.

Just to point something out -- no game has bots when it first comes out...lol

Quake Champions - Arena Shooter

Guess we're at 40 - 60!!!

Need one more Quake Arena game and I'm technically correct!!!

Edit:

How quickly we forget:

Enemy Territory: Quake Wars - Arena Shooter* (More of a class based MP shooter, but I'm not being picky here its MP only).

We've landed at 50/50!!! Bust out the Vuvuzelas!!!! :D
