This and Unreal Tournament.  Why don't they make shooters like these, anymore?

realms of the haunting should be looked at definatly. system shock 2 was also really good and now is a good time to revisit that with the new bioshock game coming out

Outlaw (by lucasart) or Carmageddon, there are a couple of games you should take a look at :-)

Absolutely adored the video.

I love it when people from the (more-or-less) present talk about games they love from the distant past, and to get footage of it at the same time is fantastic.

The fact that you're good at it and that I love it too is just icing on an already bitchin' cake.

Cheers Danny/Martin.

I remember going to a local leisure centre back in 1999 where they had a LAN party room with Quake 3.  It was awesome.

Quake was awesome but UT was even better, with rush type mod. Please make a video with Myth: Fallen Lords( the best Bungie game), carmageddon 2, battlezone, Alien vs Predator (1999)

Damn Danny has butter wrists.

His killstreak at that railgun level was sick (i mean... for a guy who actually has a job).

Seeing this I almost regret never having played quake more often... I remember how all my friends played it in the media room of our high school, but every time I gave it a try I was completely butchered. I was more an age of empires kind of guy... sigh.

Nowadays it's all about realistic world physics with realistic weapons. No wonder I haven't gotten into a first person shooter since Q3

Quite sad that todays newer generation or younger gamers haven't experienced this masterpiece of multiplayer gaming, one of the all time grates! Nothing beat using a Johnny Bravo skin rocketing your friend in a Looney Toon skin :P amazing gaming merories!

I'm going to shout out Soldier of Fortune for a future video!! But to be honest, what a game Quake III: Arena was. Legendary.

It would be amusing to discover they were on easy, in contrast to difficult.

Quake III was the first game that i started playing in a competitive way.

Games that i would like to see played by you guys would be 
Jagged Alliance - 1, Warcraft II & III, Monkey Island

This game is still 10 times more fun than any modern FPS. Depressing.

I'm more of an Unreal Tournament and UT2004 person. Though, I loved Quake 3 Arena for the Sega Dreamcast. Makes me wanna play Open Arena (legal, open-source, Q3 clone) on my laptop.

Awesome! Love the commentary, Quake definately stole that from Halo! Started playing Unreal, then TFC, CS  (was even part of a CS climbers clan lol), CS Source (Still best Zombie game/mod today).. Love seeing these games getting their recognition!

Yes Carmageddon! SWAT was fun..

What game is that in the intro with the bus sinking into water and a man in a black suit standing there looking very stiff?  Lol it just looks so terrible, I have to know!

This is what FPS's need to go back to. Modern versions of games like this would be sick.

This game is excellent and the fast paced gameplay is breathtaking; here is more game suggestions: Assault Heroes [2006] and Mario Party 3 [2000]

@vihazur Console kiddies won't pay for it because it is too hard + you can't play it properly on a console.

And yet Q3 Arena came out on the Sega Dreamcast, which, in case you are too young to know, is indeed a console. A great one at that. And might I add this game was fantastic with the Dreamcast controller

@Shingetsu @jorge69696 @vihazur I played on DC... loved q3a, I used mouse/kb and a 56k modem on the DC.... lol..... it was the game that switched me to PC Gaming..... more consoles should allow a mouse/kb setup

@Shingetsu Current console controllers wouldn't work you dipshit. Dreamcast controller being good or not has nothing to do with it.
