A Stroll Down Memory Lane: Best 3dfx Glide Games

By Shawn Knight

The year was 1998. It was Christmas time and I had just received my very first computer, an AMD K6-2 running at 333 MHz. Little did I know, from that day forward, my life would be changed forever.

One of the first such changes was my focus shift from console games to PC games. Just a few months after owning my computer, I added a Diamond Monster II 3D graphics card based on the 3dfx Voodoo 2 chipset. It was an absolute screamer and took my gaming experience to a whole new level.

We all know how the story played out for 3dfx, the graphics company that dominated the 3d graphics industry for several years in the late 90s.

Seeing Quake for the first time with the 3Dfx Glide patch was just amazing! POD also blew me away at the time.

Ahhh Memories!

Yeah.. I remember spending a ton of money of the SLI configuration.

I'm jealous! I remember that back then you needed 3 video cards to achieve 2-way SLI. That kind of setup would require 2 identical Voodoo cards a dedicated 2D card (which had to be of good quality, or it would become a bottleneck for the Voodoo chips performance).

Very expensive and completely out of my reach in those days. I had to make do with an ATI Rage (can't remember the specific model) for a number of years, and then switched to a Geforce 2.

I was never able to buy one back then and I was so jealous that my buddy had it, it was an amazing difference, huge improvements. :-)

These were the days! The birth of graphics whores was upon us. Two 3dfx cards!? Monster fx?! Sadly, it's all I cared about at the time. They were great old games though. Consoles? Pfff!
