Does anyone really not own all of these already?

Will they even run on a modern PC with Win 7?

Great games in their time, but the world has moved on ...
#3
i have had them for years and they run fine on my computer with XP

I bought the id pack as one of my first purchases couple years ago which had these in along with all the dooms and current wolfenstein...as well as some other games i was like WTF with lol

but its odd steam already started they mid week sale- they usually start it on a wednesday...i am right- it is tuesday today right? :D

I played Quake 4 recently. I struck me how dated the game now felt. Think I'll pass on this.
#5
admitedly some feel dated, but now and again i just feel like playing some simple shooting game like quake, doom or wolfenstein when i only gonna play for like 15 mins...but like i said before i got all 3, but i do lean more towards quake than doom (originals at min cause i still not completed since i keep starting again and dont play long enough to complete lol)
#6
Humming and hawing over this , Quake 2 has to be one of my favourite games ever, (quake 1 also for that matter) but I dont want to ruin the memory, but fancy another shot ... what to do.. hmmmmm...

Yes, though through DOSbox in a few cases...

SUPER HOT!

Quake 1 is a classic because of the physics in dead match mode. For example doing a rocket jump in Q1 is very different from Q2... and definitely from COD MF2 :p

And making combos was so beautiful: Rocket to the feet, send them flying and finish them with the rail gun :).

Old FPS games tend to age very badly so I'll pass.

Erm, actually no the world hasn't "moved on". These games are all still well played.

Quake3 in particular is currently well supported as a lot of foreign countries (Russia, Romania, etc) seem to have recently got access to faster/better computers at this level. I spend hours playing Q3 online every week as it's still so damn addictive.

These games may not be cutting edge graphics, but they aren't exactly stone age. These games are the ones that pushed the boundaries of FPS physics, playability and graphics, and are pretty much responsible for what came afterwards.

If you're a modern 'console gamer' who plays stuff like CoD and think you're a little bit of a hardcore player, these are probably best avoided as you'll more than likely get a bit of a shock. The people who still play these games are usually FPS veterans and tend to be more bothered about skill than eye candy (the exception being Q4 of course, as that wasn't done by iD and as such was predictably a bit of a letdown).

And yes, they all run on modern computer systems incidentally without the need for DOS emulation of any kind.

I voted Hot for nostalgia reasons. Is that wrong?

Spot on.

I discovered Quakelive back in August and am having a blast (pun intended). Every so often, a level loads up that I last played years ago and I know every spawn point, Quad Damage zones etc.

Still so addictive it's indecent. :-D
#13
just a note: if these are on steam, they will run on win7/vista, etc as the games have to be updated for compatibility in order for them to stay available on the service.

Yeah I remember playing Quake 3 on Dreamcast, and Medal Of Honor and Battlefield on PC like 7 years ago and still play them, the only reason not all the time is resolution as they cant get to my pc's native res they look dull.

hot!!!

i remember quake during my youth days... playing on college computers over the network (16 players max!!) and me on the projector.. i even managed to intrigue our lecturer...

One of the games in the century!!

great find! :-)
#16
The ad on Steam is a little misleading though "50% of all Quake games" - last time I looked, Q4 still counted as a Quake game... but not one that is on Steam :)

Quake 4 was dated the day it was released, unfortunately.

I have a very fond attachment to Quake 2. Funny how old games could make you feel you were "there" so easily ... the imagination fills in all the gaps.
#18
Already got em, but great deal. Well worth buying/playing!

Not if you're a proper Quake player - there is only Quakeworld, Q2, and Q3. :-D
Quake4 was the black sheep of the family, and is an excercise in what happens when you put the emphasis on eye candy before playability.

Even iD think so as well - when they decided to make one of their games into a browser based version (QuakeLive) they used Quake3 instead of Quake4 :-D

Just bought this and came on here to post the deal - only to see I'm way way too late.

Great, great price.

Quake 4 was a pile of steaming horse *****.

I play the original on iphone and it doesnt feel dated at all unless you compare it to the obvious games like Bad Company 2.

Bah, you obviously haven't played any of the REAL Quake games anyway, so I'm wasting computer generated text on you :x :-D

Not true, there are some games with a warning stating that they will not run on Vista/Win7 etc.. before you mistakenly buy them.

If you don't believe me, check out Railroad Tycoon 3.
#23
Thanks, bought straight away, I would love these to come out for Xbox Live as well with multi player!
#24
Brilliant! Already have these though. Q3 if my best game ever! Especially with Pro-Mode.
#25
Hmm interesting comments, yeh I bought Q4 for PC ~2years ago....and while nice graphics the multiplayer kinda sucked compared to, wait for it...

....UT99 :D I mean for a 10+ year old game it still rocks my world, the movement, dodging, flips, etc rips Q4 to pieces; Q4 felt so awkward being rooted to the spot when moving/running. While UT99's graphics seem kinda timeless, good enough with great gameplay! I could go on about this game with all the user-made game modes, SLV and BunnyTrack especially <3.

Probably most people aren't interested but heh, if you find a old copy of UT99 for a couple of quid at your local Gamestation/eBay, then try out BunnyTrack for yourself, it's like a 3D skill platformer, time-based with rankings/record for each map. (over 1000+ maps made for it!) Here are a couple of BT communities (euro servers)

I want to play Quake 2 and Quake 3 online RIGHT NOW!!!

Quake 2 is unsurpassed to this day, for the hardcore FPS-ER.

Consider the railgun and rocket launcher!! Pure FILTH !!

Do these versions make access to deathmatch servers easy?
