Agreed.IDDQD wrote:IMO the first Quake is the best Quake game in the series. I loved the dark gothic feel of the game and in some ways preferred it to Doom as it had way more atmoshphere.
I remember the game, it was great. From the bloody axe to the nailgun you gotta love the weapons. I liked it in Multiplayer, we played it even years later.
I was around 12 years old when i first played it and i remember how scared i was of all those monster. Especially the Demon (the sitting one that jumps directly in your face) got me every time. And what i liked were the Endbosses. You don't shoot at them to kill them, you had to think and search the arena. Like the Lightning thing to kill the Devilboss in Episode 1 or the Orb for the tentaclething in Episode 4.
I like the game, altough i must say i prefer the Multiplayer Mode in LAN. The single player mode feels a bit empty and doesn't come near to the greatness of Duke Nukem 3D (which in reverse has a rather bland Multiplayer mode)
The Story i heard was, that Quake 2 was supposedly a new game. As the release date got nearer and nearer iD thought about a title, but couldn't come up with anything that wasn't already taken. So at the last second they just slapped Quake 2 on the Box. I don't know if this is true, but it does make some sense.IDDQD wrote:Anybody know why ID ditched the horror theme of the first game?
And i guess they just ran with the idea. Quake is the Sci-Fi Shooter and Doom is now the Horrorshooter. But i would love to see Quake 5 going back to the original style
