Time Willits talks to Eurogamer Expo 2011 crowds about the past 20 years of id Software and how Call Of Duty fans need to thank Quake for their favourite game.
Thanks, quake! :)
You can so imagine obssesed COD freaks shaking there heads in denial ....No....No.........in Consuela's voice from Family guy http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_v...
...and other FPS.
The only other FPS besides Quake that CoD scrubs should thank is Medal of Honor, the series that CoD branched off from.
I prefer to thank their moms and dads or quake wouldnt exist in the first place lol
I thank PONG cause that dude shoots the ball and the guy ricochets the Bullet off back to the shooter, and gets a last stand kill, or it the bullet shoots into the shooters gun chamber and he fires it back and the other guy equips his riot shield and richochets back. ...thats Epic Warefare right there
Id should be glad COD used their engine. Without them and the royalties from it's success i don't think Id would still be around.
LOLWAT? You're fucking joking, right? IW only had to pay a one-time license fee to use the engine. id made their money from selling fucktons of their badass games. Ever hear of Quake 3 Arena? That game along sold a crapload of copies, as well as pretty much every title in the Doom and Quake series. Money has never been a problem for id.
How long ago was that? And would they sell now? Rage is the only real game coming from them in years. Doom and quake are outdated and if they were to bring them back now how many people would go out and buy them? Right now Rage Is 9th on the pre order chart, right under a little RPG game called magika. If that's your idea of "still around", that's my idea of "making it by the skin of your teeth".
Those games still DO sell now, that's my point. Not only that, but they also have Quake Live which you can pay to get premium features on, so they're getting extra cash from that. LOL @ them being "outdated". Hundreds of thousands of people still play the Quake and Doom games' multiplayer daily. Those games are still used in tourneys to this day. Try again.
Yes, and Counterstrike is still one of the biggest FPS in the world. Understandably so considering it is one of the most hardcore, authentic experiences ever created imo. Let these nubs have their MW3, I will be playing CS GO. Much thanks to all of the devs with integrity who are still left.
Hundreds of thousands play quake and doom daily? Um no, quake 3 is the only popular one now, and even that only has 500 players at the most right now. I checked. @Clearelite I think you mistake me for a COD fan. I'm the opposite in fact. Counterstrike is a legend of a game, but how does that even tie into what I'm saying?
I kinda already thanked Quake back when I was playing it, years ago. Now, I curse Quake for allowing CoD to become the monster it is today.
