    i can't say they're my favorite but i currently have the beta of Jupiter Hell which is derived from Doom... i sponsered them on their kickstarter... getting JH required that i install steam which lead me to pull in a couple of other free games... one of those is a fishing game called Fishing Planet... you work your way up to other fishing areas by catching fish and increasing your points... Jupiter Hell is a top down 3D rogue/nethack like game... just like doom, you explore and kill enemies as you work your way through the moons of jupiter...

    What if it's still DOOM? I'm amazed that so many years after it was released that I'm still seeing mods and levels for it.

    For me, it was the first multiplayer FPS I played - we used to use IPX networking at my office and do a 6 person conference call on the office PBX.

    Cooperative mode DOOM with that setup took up a lot of time in the early 90s. Wait, did I say DOOM? I meant "Off-Hours Network Stress Testing"...

    I'd be interested in reading about that. I bought DOOM III, installed it here and can't get it to work.

    Sure! I'm still playing DOOM II. I can't seem to get away from it although I do wonder about those par times Take for example TNT Evolution level 21. No way that can be done in 4 minutes unless you cheat.

    For me, it was the first multiplayer FPS I played - we used to use

    I leave stuff like that to my grandson. He's a whiz at it.

    I need more room to avoid bumping into teammates. With the tank battles and starting out the sea battles, I end up ramming my compatriots more than striking out at the enemy. :)

    I played Quake II online continuously in the late '90s, my favorite rig was
    an old Dell PII rig with a Matrox add-on 3d card.

    I recently found a QuakeSpy program called Qtracker and found out that Sheridan:City1, the server/map I played on was still running! Alas, most of
    the servers are ghost towns nowadays.

    Actually I much preferred Quake III as it was faster than Quake II. Quake was a
    real favourite too but Quake II never really did it for me.

    I played OpenArena for a time, if I'm not mistaken it used an open sourced Quake III Arena engine. That was a fast-paced game!
