Those guys should play some Dark Souls, looks like they're in need of a challenge.

I think I first played Quake on PC..then on PS2 if my memory serves me right...

I look forward to a new Quake (not the Earthquake!); possibly the time when a new Unreal Engine hits on the market on 2014?

Hahahahaha yeah...

The truth is though that if Quake were released for the first time today, no one would have noticed. Few people care about this kind of game, sadly.

The point isn't in that they would still be great games today that beat the rest. They want to point out all the stupid new things added to games.

Company logos that can't be skipped without editing the ini-file, having no helpful graphics options (Witcher 2, I love you, you did it right), every difficulty setting is mostly too easy, but only have some unfair spots that make them hard (Dragon Age 2, I'm looking at you and your ridiculous boss fights).

Also the hand holding players have to deal with these days, you won't get to use your brains in an adult game because the devs knew kids would play them anyways and added all those
"Hey, in case you didn't notice, in this puzzle you're supposed use the mirrors to aim the light beam to that hole."
"Thanks, Nathan Drake, I was really worried there for a moment. A mirror. A light. What could it possibly mean?"

And don't get me started on the DLC. Fallout: NV does it right, but so many games just do it so wrong. Making numerous separate DLCs for medium prices just to get all your moneys. Plus boss battles are ridiculously easy these days.

Granted, these points don't apply to every game, but at least every game has one of these. Dark Souls, God of War III and Valve in general warm my heart. Those kinds of games and companies still help me have faith that one day we will get awesome games that don't sacrifice gameplay, story and length for the pretty looks.

^Most or all of the developers you mention have strong oldschool roots. It's great at least a few have the same values.

That was the golden era of gaming.. But we didn't know it at the time.

I was at a LAN the other day and started playing some Doom in my off time. People were crowding around and watching me play a first person shooter with only a keyboard.
Most fun I had that LAN actually, apart from Sins of a Solar Empire.

My friends and I would usually end up resorting to Quake 3 arena against insane bots when we got tired of TF2 or HL2DM
