QuakeWorld Turns 17 and This Day in Gaming History

Stories from our archive. First are a couple from yesterday, as it was December 17th 1996 that the QuakeWorld client was released by id Software and it was December 17th 1996 1998 that Epic Games (at the time Epic MegaGames) announced both Unreal Tournament and Unreal II. On to December 18th, it was 15 years ago today that Starsiege TRIBES went gold. Here are more stories of note: Splinter Cell Demo (2002), International UT2004 Demo (2004), Tiberium Announced (2007), ABIT Closes (2008), Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam shipped (2010), and RAGE: The Scorchers shipped (2012). Update: Corrected the year on the Unreal Tournament/Unreal II link.

Quakeworld is still my fondest memory of FPS multiplayer gaming. Whether I was swinging through a map like spiderman using my grappling hook in Threewave CTF or just playing my favorite mod of all time the original Team Fortress, you just can't find anything that approaches that experience anymore.

Today, you have 12 year olds who used their daddy's credit card to buy hacks sold my some tool that ruins every FPS game within days of release. And when that's not the case, the trolls await to rend any remaining fun the game possesses.
