Picked this up for linux recently.

Image Image Image

it's the linux native version of quake III as ported by loki games back in 2001, the last game they ported and distributed.

I got it up and running recently, it's a lot of fun and I was playing against windows users last night over the internet 8)

Right? I love big box games for that reason. They're actually tangible, unique, and covered in artwork lol.

I should add Duke Nukem to the title too. I really like the Duke Nukem games although it's unfortunate Duke Nukem Forever has murdered any interest in the franchise for awhile and Gearbox only wants to invest any effort into Borderlands. Though I should save my conflicted feelings for Borderlands in another thread.

I think I might've actually played Duke before Doom or Quake. I think it was a PS1 game too weirdly I got out of a bargain bin for like 3 dollars.

That wouldn't surprise me, a lot of early FPS games were ported to PS1, doom quake, Duke Nukem 3D, and I think the original half life as well.

I played them in a weird order. Duke then Quake then Doom. I don't remember when I played Half Life 1 but definitely not at release.

half life 1 was going to come out on the sega dreamcast.

and was originally released in 1998

I remember the release of Half Life 2 better than 1. The only hype that rivaled it at the time was Halo sequels.
