im 22 and at some point i picked an entrypoint(first person perspective) and decided to try all the greatest games in it. at the time being into halo reach i ended up trying marathon and then doom on xbox arcade. i learned about emulation on our family facebook machine and got an interest in computers and older games in general. i played a lot more older fps too just to try them, from quake to blood to rebel moon to corridor 7 to quiver, cybermage, necrodome and mods and sequels. i just gave everything a shot while i was creating that megatorrent of older fps (i dont know if its still seeded)
while i was exposed to quake 2 multiplayer and redneck rampage growing up, i think people know what they like and will explore older games in that genre looking for an experience to capture that magic even if it isn't familiar to them. and thankfully with that boomer meme quake is in the limelight for a little while longer, i guarantee people are getting exposed to the series because of it which is great
