My favorite singleplayer ID is DOOM and Quake 3 for multiplayer

>> No.1084631

Should I play Wolfenstiens? I loved Doom 1 and 2, but these games seem less rip and tear and more grey and blue.

>> No.1084637

Wolfenstein is pretty primitive compared to Doom. It's not just the tech though - the gameplay isn't really up to par. (There were some pretty good tile-based raycasting games - Rise of the Triad comes to mind, as does the old AvP game. It's not a limitation of this engine style.)

I think he meant ruined id software as a team, to which I very much agree.

>mfw Quake 3 was my frist FPS I even played, and it was on Dreamcast.

I wasn't big on them back in the PS1/N64 days, and I got it for Christmas, so I just played it.

Pretty fucking fun, impossible to play today due to one stick.

1. Doom
2. Wolf3d
3. Quake

The only true order.

>> No.1084753

If you want to play Wolfenstein in 2013, you should grab the ZDoom TC. It's pretty much perfectly faithful to the original DOS game, while being a lot less headache-inducing thanks to the smoother scaling and higher framerate.


>> No.1084754


>lowest of the 3

Nigger you WHAT?

Quake had the best engine by far, not to mention internet deathmatch.

>> No.1084764

>higher framerate

Bitch please, Wolf runs at 70 fps. It may be headache-inducing for other reasons but that is not one of them.

>> No.1084792

It's less imaginative than Doom, the aesthetics are much more monotone, I didn't enjoy the weapons as much.
Wolf is just classic and I enjoy it to this day.

>> No.1084810


oh and not to mention, fucking mouselook.

Wolfenstein 3D isn't quite as good as Doom but it's worth it for 4.99. It's quite primitive in comparison, but that's expected of the first real FPS.

>> No.1084940

does anyone here play Quake 1 multiplayer? I still can't figure out how it's supposed to be set up

>> No.1084968

Wolfenstein 3D is such a pain in the ass, it's like an endless maze where everything looks exactly the same. It takes forever to find the key and then the door. I look Doom a lot better, it's still fun to play to this day. I don't know why Eric and Dylan would have been so into it though, wouldn't it have been somewhat outdated by the time they did their thing?

I just got Final Doom, that shit's so difficult.

>> No.1084990

Umm what are you talking about? I know Columbine and rah rah rah, but we had Doom installed on the machines in our Jr. High at the time. The teacher let us have LAN parties every other Friday. Then those dickheads had to shoot up their school and ruined it for all of us.

>> No.1084992

What's the best way to get quake running now? doesn't seem as straightforward as ZDoom, and the one sourceport I found has disgusting bilinear texture filtering on

>> No.1084996

Commander Keen is my earliest video game I think. I might have played some others but this is the one I really remember.

great fucking series. Too bad we'll never get that seventh game

>> No.1085169

It wasn't just supposed to be a seventh game, it was a third TRILOGY. There were supposed to be nine games.

Keen 4, 6 and 5 (in that order) were actually supposed to be a trilogy but publisher fuckery forced them to split it up.

>> No.1085187


same here, we had all the iD games, Duke 3D, Rise of the Triad, Descent/Descent II on all the computers in one of the Math rooms. I LAN'ed every single day at lunch from my freshman year till Junior year, then all those friends I played with graduated and I got a girlfriend and started going out at lunch...

Honestly I Preferred LAN'ing at lunch instead of going out and being "popular"

>> No.1085621

does anyone know how to play Quake online if you have the steam version? I was hoping it would be like a modern game with a server browser but that's not the case. Is Quake III like that though?

No go, only way to play Q1 online nowadays is QuakeWorld and the de-facto standard for playing QW is nQuake. Just download it and copy the PAK files over.

Probably Commander Keen, because it was the first game I ever played.

Quake II is a close second. It had the most satisfying railgun of any Quake game.
