Quake 4 in the Top Ten

A News for Quake 4

The Top Ten FPS Games of 2005, as decided by GGL, has released their list to the public. Quake 4 was even listed coming away with FOURTH place!
Quake 4 Quake 4 is the resident dandy within this fine collection. Vacuous and uncomplicated, it struts its stuff on the catwalk of fame simply because it looks gorgeous. Its simple multiplayer framerate is mired with problems if the number of players are increased, but dueling has once again come home to the Quake franchise. Doom3 looked fantastic, but a year of further engine tweakery has given Raven the edge with their baby. And speaking of The Edge, Q4 has become the default game for 1v1 Tournaments. Q4 has arrived at the right time; Q3 had lost its place within the CPL to Painkiller (much to my amazement). Although still regarded as one of the finest multiplayer experiences ever, Q3 had lost its appeal to the big sponsors. In stepped Painkiller to fill the void -- an indifferent multiplayer experience that resulted in a comparatively small catchment of competitors. Fatal1ty and Vo0 battled for the coveted CPL prizes, the rest is Painkiller history. The first big Q4 tournament wrapped this month with Quake 3 player “Cooler” taking first prize. Some people don’t see any other gamer getting close to the ex-Q3 players, but time will tell. If nothing else, Q4 has brought together a menagerie of gamers from various expiring shooters (Q3, Painkiller and UT2004 being practically extinct now). Q4 has inherited a vast array of competitive duelists from all these games. Q4 isn’t just a single-player blast’em-up, it’s quite possibly the finest gathering of dueling prowess ever seen on the Internet.
