used to play 2k3, which was better than 2k4.  quit when i reached #3 on the US ladder, it lost its fun.

I was playing a demo of 2k4 yesterday, own it I did. Best multi-player FPS since the original UT.
Fuck what I want.
Fuck what I need.
I'll sacrifice what I believe.
My little girlscout, your mouth is getting sore.
Will you love me any less, if I hurt you any more?

yeah, he also did the soundtrack to Hero, which is actually better than the soundtrack to Tiger/Dragon.  which is saying a lot, because Tiger/Dragon is my fifth favorite music album ever.

Original UT is better (old-skool games roxor!!), but REALLY looking forward to 2k7.... IF my pc can run it, which i seriously doubt  :'(

The first UT has a better feel, and it's not full of fluff to dramatically increase the spec requirements for no reason, thus can be played on my computer. I like the space-y settings the best in UT, so it's boring when the others want to play those cramped, rusty industrial levels.

Quake 3 is still better than both of them IMO (especially with Rocket Arena), thanks to the weapon balance and minimalist presentation - and I only need to see five corners on that horribly complicated decorative structure, not a thousand. Curved surfaces was a great idea for people with low specs.

And I still think any rocket launcher after vanilla Quake 1 feels like firing wet puffs of smoke at your opponents, especially in UT. Q1 was unbalanced, but partly thanks to its audio had a powerful feel that no FPS has captured since.

I know. I liked the Tiger/Dragon one more though, maybe because it's one of my favourite movies... then again, that might be because of the soundtrack  ;)
