How the fuck did they make this look so good? This has to be one of the most graphically impressive games on the console, if not the generation as a whole.

Cut content or not, the fact they made it look as good as it did and running so smoothly is a massive technical achievement. I can't think of any 5th gen shooter that approaches this level of visual fidelity without sacrificing framerate.

I searched for a video on youtube and got to say i'm impressed. The game looks more colorful than I remember when played on pc. And it seems there's extra audio tracks.

It is, significantly. Also I actually think some aspects of the graphics are more detailed. Very beautiful looking game. Both console ports of Quake 2 are great looking and very vibrant, although the PS1 version probably looks the best.

I guess I gave you too much credit, I assumed you were talking about adding in level segments/lighting like the PS1 version has but instead your argument against a unique experience is simply that "I can play with skins n' stuff", lol...

Ironically I get to play any game I want because I have a great PC and the money to buy any consoles games I desire, meanwhile you sit here having a veritable tantrum because somebody isn't playing a game the way you want them to. Re-evaluate your life dude, it's kind of embarrassing.

Game was second game with real 3d graphics and Carmack learned how to master OpenGL. It was still the time when it was possible to make pioneer development which looked like it was miles ahead of the competition.
These days everything has been standardized into couple of engines and the rendering pipeline is mostly looking same for everyone (i.e. which means every game looks technically almost identical when it comes to shaders and rendering).
Not sure about the Playstation 1 version itself, that was probably quite a feat because the console wasn't designed for 3d in mind.
