Quake 3 is without a doubt of one the best deathmatch experiences out there. I played Q3Test .80 a lot, and the 3 maps in the test/demo were the best maps that were released with the game, though they were all top notch.

The Longest Yard rules.

As a matter of interest, have any of you guys tried out Tenebrae for the original Quake? If not, you really should - it's amazing what a few graphics programmers with a lot of spare time can do to a dated engine.

http://tenebrae.sourceforge.net/

(Edit: I'd love to see this done for Q2... It'd make me play through yet again.. As if I've not won Q2 enough times already...)

Ridiculous DOES not have an 'e' in it. It comes from "ridicule" and has less than nothing to do with the colour red.

Carmack's said that he'd be interested in updating previous id titles under the Doom 3 engine. I'd be all over that, especially if they sunk some time (or hired someone to sink some time) in the re-make, to make sure it came off awesome. Given id's reputation as a graphics juggernaut, I can't see them releasing a halfway done remake of Quake 2 with just shiny water and nifty lighting - it'd be something to see.

Oh yeah, Quake 4 is going to rule.

BTW even this isn't pushing the D3 engine as far as it can go and it already looks amazing!!

Keep in mind, that Quake 4 has a similar target HW spec as doom3 because quake 4 started about a year after doom3.

I'm betting the next wolfenstein game and that Nerve software game will show the engines true potential.
