UT99 - woot! Still the best.
I always preferred UT 2003. Was I the only one that thought quakeworld was kinda janky when it was first released? I actually preferred the original netcode for gameplay purposes. Of course, my 300+ ping might have had something to do with it.
Quake World added a lot of prediction to it, which flopped miserably, at least on dialup, with fast-twitch action.
I was in NBI, a regular clan that vied near the top, and finally quit after a Quake World match where I had rocket jumped from a lower to higher bridge over water (under heavy assault), the kind of stuff I loved. Sudden lag, and I found myself underwater running in the corner.
The predictor, combined with bursty twitch changes, just couldn't handle it. As it was almost all Quake World by that point, screw it.
