    At least Yahtzee has the right general idea, even if he falters on some of the particulars.

    I used to watch his videos MANY years ago, so it's always vertigo-inducing to see one posted and realize that he's still there cranking them out.

    Back when I had godly reflexes and hastened the breaking point of many aspiring school shooters, Quake 3 was the only FPS that could allow me to reach my full potential as the undisputed apex predator. UT '99 was too sluggish and lacked that impact to the gameplay. I felt like I was put on a leash, like I was deliberately having my deadliness drastically lowered so even the amputated could stand a chance. I don't like that.

    Nowadays I'd probably enjoy UT '99 more because I'm a washed up, broken down, used and abused shadow of former glory. But back when I was a gladiatorial savage with the blood of lions bolstering my every rocket jump and railgun shot? Q3, all day.

    That's about the only advantage I give credit to Quake 3; I remember playing UT at 1.2x speed or something like that with friends. UT99 though had better atmosphere, more varied weapons that made you think, even in the thick of a battle. With the editor, it was also possible to crank all sort of cool tricks, like maps with inverted gravity or traps that could be player activated (and the game would still acknowledge your kill, even if it was triggered by an external event). Still a masterpiece that has aged gracefully.

    I was a young adult in 99 but I can still hold my own against Q3A's nightmare bots in the current year.

    :smug:

    Too bad fake id basically killed Q3 when they released that QL abomination. Quake Champions is the final nail in the coffin.

    Should you ever feel like playing a Q3 duel (osp 1.03) or two, let me know. :D
    Maybe we could even organise a Codex FFA or TDM or something?
    I'm super rusty though.
