Default Top 10 Game Engines

Ok i seen this today and i was like, where is the engine of all engines that started it all "Quake Engine"?

I know these engines are awesome but the quake engine was the start right and even the doom 3 engine was, oh wait ok cool but not the best.

The first quake engine that was used in both quakes 1 and 2 had alot of games that followed it like HL, SOF1, Kingpin, and many others so why wasn't it mentioned?

Meh, polygon 3d environments have been done for along time now, and have also been impressive for about as much time.

I belive it wasn't until catacomb 3-d where bitmaps were used on walls and such. I can't really say polygons here because catacomb, wolf3d, and doom use no polygons.

Doom was definetly the perfection of what wolf3d ultimately started (go go vga graphics!) , but I think quake gets more acclaim for being a) true 3d, b) extremely customizable to your pc, c) amazingly user configurable engine, d) quakeworld's initial plan for online gaming is just about how we still do it today.

It also gets kudos for finally giving hardware companies to make 3d accelerators. Imagin how much suck we would be in now if 3dfx failed. We would be playing tekken 1 NOW.

I saw the article too(should maybe put a link in the first post), but it was for modern engines, Quake is no longer relevent, however I was suprised at no mention of idtech4 or 5
