    What you talkin' 'bout willis!

    Descent ROCKED! I still have my CD that game with a SoundBlaster! 16 + cd kit I had in my 486. Joystick + keyboard, 4 player null modem cable... oh the hours I wasted...

    We even had modem to modem multiplayer going from time to time.

    Personally I missed Quake II, and Quake Worlds. I didn't get back into the FPS until Half-Life was released.

    Then I like so many others played entirely too much Counter-Strike.

    LOL.
    The FPS I play now are the Battlefield series.
    I never played Counter-Strike, so I can't insult it. (just kidding0

    Quake 3 Arena - the pacing was hilariously quick. I think I had more fun rail gunning and rocketing people in that game than any other.

    Descent was the first truly 3D FPS. The original quake was released after, and it wasn't 3d, it was just like DOOM. 2D designed to make you think it was 3d.

    Quake II was finally 3D, as it ran with Glide on the Voodoo series accelerators from 3DFX.

    Game History... I'm such a dork.
    Back in the early 90's Decent was my favorite. I actually still have it and loaded it up on my laptop about a month ago. Still works great.

    Hey far, it sounds like you've been gaming a bit longer than I have.

    But, I still have a license, for a 10 node PCboard BBS, and a 10 node TradeWars2002...

    The BBS days were great. I was more of a wildcat guy, but they were all good.

    BBS days were?

    You do realize that BBS's "are"

    They just run over telnet now.. but all that stuff is still around if you know where to look.

    there's irony here. I spend most of my time on Untangle blocking this stuff so people actually can do work in an office - rather than enjoy themselves.
