    Quake Vs Quake 2

    Ok I've started this off the back of the Quake 4 thread to keep them separate

    Which did you prefer, the original, dark and gothicly fun mad frag fest of Quake™ complete with its hell knights, scrags, shamblers etc or the slower, totally different and almost totally unrelated Quake2™? Wonder which I preferred eh?

    But if we ask most people here i would bet that the majority of people would say quake 2...largely because thats the one that most people would have played first and the most, so it's fair enough. Personally i played quake1 for years when it came out, quakeworld was stll fun online even with a 14.4k modem, and then when 56k came along..wow it was fast Then there were the classics like (original) team fortress..and ofc the single player mission packs and when your bored of all that speed runs and then your own mods, since it was so easy to mod. I didnt play quake2 properly until after half life came out, and I wasn't that impressed with it. Other than the (at the time) fancy gfx it wasn't that much fun, and even that didnt matter too much when some clever sod released GL quake, making it still fun to play it to this day

    Granted in terms of techncial achievements quake2 was the better game, better AI, gfc, sound, map size, there was even a progressive storyline (of sorts). But where was the mad fun of circle strafing round a group of zombies, gibbing them all over the place with your grenade launcher; or rocket jumping up to that secret, or engaging in AA battles with the wizzards (one of many names for the flying things). Top fun

    Anyway I obviously prefer quake 1, a great mix of single player and multiplayer which has stood the test of time. And i nearly forgot the start when you choose your difficulty - ingenious tbh. Playing it on easy or medium was simple, just walk down the corridor, but to get to hard mode you had to jump over some lava (not hard i know but for complete newbies to fps games they woudlnt be able to do it) and nightmare mode..well that was only for those that explored properly (towards the 4th world, as your falling down through the water hold down backwards and you fall onto a wooden beam, walk along that and you find a secret tunnel, where you can access nightmare mode along with a shoot-to-press switch to enable Ziggurat Vertigo(sp?), a hidden level)

    Classic

    Quake 1 purely for the fact that it will run on pretty much any PC made in last 8 years so can be run on any office LAN

    I didnt play much Quake 2 much because when it came out my PC wasnt up to it and by the time I could I didnt want.

    Quake 2 will always have a place for me as being the first time I had a decent connection and played multiplayer..

    Oh and, through a stupid amount of fiddling and extreme amounts of luck, me and Zak actually got it to work in a co-op mode over 56k dial up!

    But for sheer 'ooh that's new'-ness, it has to be Quake... but then Quake 2 did the whole story thing... On the other hand, Quake was open source and modifiable through the control panel to set circle straffing keys and the like...

    But then Quake 2 had outdoor areas and the railgun...

    But then Quake pushed the boundaries of what could be done with the engine, with Ziggurat Vertigo's low gravity as an example...

    But the Quake 2 had some of the best multiplayer maps ever, built in.

    But then Quake had much better secret areas and more complex ways of accessing them...

    Aaaaargh... can't choose....

    Quake 2 was drop dead gorgeous in 800x600 with 2 Voodoo2 cards in the older version of SLI

    I preferred Q2 over Q1 mainly due to the multiplayer aspect - I used to have hours of fun trying to keep a ping under 250-300 while trying to kick a few friends arses

    Quake 2 just because of the mod "Action Quake 2" which was basically the prequal to CounterStrike. I wasted a lot of time of that mod, and I mean a LOT of time.

    \erm no not really..I can see a few similarities but they were there in many quake1 mods too eg Special Forces (total conversion) etc.

    Hmm, I remain undecided, this will have to get some thoughttime in my brainbox. The only option I could click right now would be "oh god how am I meant to chose I loved both musnt betray either *head explodes*", but thats not an option

    I also played Q1 first, and its difficulty choosing area will be forever in my mind, but so will the utter fear I felt as a young'n with the Q2 soundtrack on, when I'd just come out of a pod with a crappy gun, no support, and I thought I was going to get shot to pieces.

    I'm leaning towards Q1, the nail gun, the mods, the style. But I shall wait

    Like others have mentioned I'd just pick Q2 over Q1 simply over the multi player aspect of the game.

    I use to play this game so religiously with my m8s back in school, and the mods were the bomb too like chaos, action q2, gloom and instagib which was my favourite.

    I'm definitely a Q1 player, much more enjoyable over Q2.
