    It is a good observation with the tutorial pop ups. They annoy the hell out of me. I think one of the culprits for the lack of "twitch" shooting is everything is going for realism and everyone has to aim down the sights.

    If quake was made today it would probably have the same game mechanics as every other FPS around now. It is a shame as it has been a long time since I even gave any thought to Quake.

    I think Doom 2 had almost passed me by when I got a PC, but was totally blown away by this game, against my mate via a 36k modem! Anyone here ever used to use BT's Wireplay gaming service? Way ahead of its time really.

    I put A LOT of hours into the original quake was top notch for the time.

    Certainly do miss the fast pace which isn't really in many games theses days.

    Genius.

    All that's missing is a quicktime event with 360-button icons in the PC version.

    PRESS Y TO NOT DIE!

    Just needs the above, a brown tint to everything, and some strawberry jam effects when you get hit!
