QUAKE "Reboot" Possible

id Software is considering a return to the QUAKE series, John Carmack tells Eurogamer, though while id's technical director says "strong factions" within the company are in favor of this, he also notes this is speculative as they continue work on RAGE and DOOM 4, saying: "Nothing is scheduled here, people are not building this." His comments indicate that if this comes to pass, their leaning is towards a reboot of the Cthulhu-style mash-up of the first game, rather than the Strogg-oriented sequels. "We went from the Quake 2 and the Quake 4 Strogg universe. We are at least tossing around the possibilities of going back to the bizarre, mixed up Cthulhu-ish Quake 1 world and rebooting that direction," he tells them. "We think that would be a more interesting direction than doing more Strogg stuff after Quake 4. We certainly have strong factions internally that want to go do this."

I certainly count myself among the "Fogeys". The thing that stuck out for me the most the first time I saw Quake was the graphics. My jaw hit the floor when I saw it being played.

yeh me too.. if you can wrap your head around it, i used to play the shit with keyboard only for quite a while.. which was the same way i played doom and wolfenstein.. when the qtest was going around, someone came by to play on our LAN and said "dude.... use a mouse" and i was blown away with how much it changed the game, hehe
Same here. I tried using the mouse for DOOM and Wolf3D, but it didn't work because it wasn't 360 degrees like Quake and newer. Geez, we're old.
