Jace Hall has made a lot of us nostalgic for the games
of yesteryear. There’s an entire generation of people out there that know
what a Nintendo64, Dreamcast and what Pocket Gaming is. Then there’s that
same generation plus one that remembers Playstation one and Amiga, might
even still have one and the days of modding for Planet Tetrinet – Quake 2,
building a Quake 3 map and spending all day in a Quake 3 Arena.
Id Software is still one of the greatest developers of all time and this was
in part because of how they brought their fans into the development by
listening to suggestions, by opening up their code for mods and from it,

being in the Quake 3 Arena was always a gamble with bandwidth issues (some

with that terrible music they had. I preferred my pretend gambling on the
Playstation when WSOP released their games. I also remember a fun little

Quake 3 Arena, then tell us all about it. We would love to hear how gaming
affected your development as an adult, as a kid, etc. We will feature some
of the best stories about gaming right here so make sure to use excellent
The next story we will write about, will be about the new 3D games. Some of
the best 3D games has to be the new
slot machines, these new games use the newest 3D, and they are simply
some of the best 3D design we have seen.
