Id Software joins steam?

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

Most hilarious and idiotic thing.

Yup steam has taken id games and is now selling them, But what really set me off is that they are selling quake 1, 2, and 3. And Quake 2 is on the MAIN page!!! It was released in December 6, 1997 10 years ago for Christ sake. And they are selling quake 1, 2 or 3 for 10 Dollars each!! (or 25 for a pack) And i just love how they say "Minimum: A 100% Windows 2000/XP/Vista-compatible computer system" for system requirements. Well just to let you know: The real requirements are 90 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM. I bet you can count on your fingers the people that use a computer that has something less, and even if they did back then internet was so slow that it was mostly a LAN game, not an internet game. And quake has a metascore of 84!!! HOW LAME IS THAT!!! While its bigger brother (quake 3) has a meta score of 69, and has better graphics. Not to mention its a lot more fun. Just to let you know how popular the game is: I bought 3 quake 3 arena cd's for a dollar at a garage sale, because i wanted to play online with my friends (quake 3 isn't too bad because of the high speed on Lan, if you don't react fast enough, your dead.) Now tell me, was it really worth it for steam to get with id software, which is not so much the total loser because it released doom 3 and quake 4 which are both not too bad, but still kinda suck (no offense)

    Its still stupid, who would buy a never so popular 10 year old game. I would pay the 10 bucks for cs 1.6 instead of quake any day. And don't think i don't like classic games but its not really considered a classic because it was never popular and never really was fun to play every day.

    Both pretty much. Isn't quake the "more" popular cousin of doom? If you really want those games, don't pay steam so much, go to a garage sale that has some classic games and ull get all of them for a couple dollars, they aren't too hard to find.

    No its just that the games are pretty stupid anyway. They are just way out of their time. They were never popular and never will be. Even back then they were probably aiming at a small number of customers who would buy their game, play it for a while, dislike it and go back to cs. Seriously.

    Lucky me. I already have all ID games. I've had them since my first computer which was 8 or 9 years ago. Then I bought the others when they came out.

    Metascore is determined by Gameplay, Graphics, etc. Apparently Quake 2 was better, deal with it.

    Thought people play games b/c the game was actually good not b/c of graphics...i remember metal gear solid had some bad ones and hell there mouths would never move but its one of the best games ever released...(and Remember those games came out back when Half-Life Was Still New)

    Id games are really the only "old" games that I like. Seeing how I grew up playing the Quake games. But the prices for these games on Steam are pretty gay.

    It's just Valve expanding it's game library even if they are overpriced, most people have already bought the games.

    25 for all three games really isnt such a shitty deal considering you're buying them online and it's a direct download which frees you from CD keys and the like but yes please continue your tirade against the evil VALVE corporation and their constant efforts to hurt the common gamer by releasing popular video games

    The only thing I like about this is how I can get all of them for 60 bucks. But if you're not going to shell that out, it's just worthless. I hate having to buy games off of Steam. I really prefer to have the physical game box.
