Thief at 15

Rock, Paper, Shotgun notes yesterday marks 15 years since Thief: The Dark Project shipped (thanks nin), which checks with the Wikipedia, but I think I'll trust our archive from that time that it was actually 15 years ago today, which was a Tuesday. Either way, it's been that long since the release of the stealth classic. In other gaming history, it was 16 years ago today that QUAKE II went gold, and 14 years ago today that QUAKE III Arena went gold, a stark example of how much quicker game development was back in the day. And it was 10 years ago today that X²: The Threat arrived in North American and Australian stores. Rounding out the anniversaries, it was nine years ago today that Painkiller: Battle Out Of Hell shipped, kicking off that series.
