Good memories. I got online 17 years ago then, because I signed up for my first (As in, it was paid for by me, not leeching off a friend) internet account back in October of 1996. Couple months later I got the shareware of Quake and a friend unlocked it for me. We used to play Quakeworld all the time after that. Funny how it was so playable even at 28.8bps whereas I dumped DSL back 6 years ago because it was too SLOW. Amazing.
Modern shooters don't do shit for me. Quake, the first Unreal and UT...after that it all started to go downhill. I think UT was the peak. For me anyway.
