Tribes is the best game I've ever played. I still play tribes mods team rabbit and team rabbit 2 to this day.
Whatever comes from garage games, the future looks bright for tribes.
If you haven't played it, get tribes for free join some base servers and get the feel for the game now so you have a shot at being good when the next gen game comes out.
