Happy Birthday Quake!
The legendary Quake turns 15 years old today. This game pretty much goes back to some of the greatest first-person shooters out there. Did you know that modifications were some of the coolest things back then that have spun off games you have come to love and adore? If game developers didn't allow modifications, we probably wouldn't see games today like Team Fortress 2 and Counterstrike. So, let's remember this game for its rich community by playing tonight! We'll explore modifications if we can get them to still work, share memories, watch some machiima videos from way back then, and more. and much more. So tell us what you'd like to try out and we'll continue to play to our heart's content!
We'll start playing around 4 p.m. Pacific time tonight. Fun times will be had with the free and full version of the game. If you'd like to get in some practice and download the freeware version early, drop by nQuake http://nquake.com/. Here's the chatroom link, which requires the latest java to be installed.
Share your experiences in the comments if you played before or if this will be your first time playing the game.
This was a great game night, hoping to play again in the future, I'm not sure if I've managed to kill Jody in the game ;)
This was a lot of fun and my first time playing Quake. Thought I did very well for my first time. It was a great experience and would love to do it again some time.

Quake was such a fast shooter it was too much for me. I DID play Quake 3 though on Xbox. It was pretty cool.
this is hard to get working I own quake on steam and i'm trying nquake. No luck so far. I got nquake to not crash on start by turning on compatibility mode to windows 95
Damn, kinda last minute update it feels like! I guess it sounds like you'll be starting in 45 minuteS? how long will you be going for? I guess I can get home in the next half hour :P .
snes_vs_ps1: Where Goldeneye 007(or Perfect Dark), Turok series, and Timesplitter Future Perfect on that list, though that's a really great list.
This song fits Quake's atmosphere perfectly, unlike the boring soundtrack made by Trent Reznor:P http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RNgyVliUM3c&feature=related
