Making this mostly to post links so they don't get lost in the shoutbox. Feel free to post anything related to old games here.

These are modern-ish clients for some of the old FPS we've been talking about.



Quake 1/Quakeworld
nQuake (most common client for MP)
fte (QW compatible but better graphics, particles and in-game updater)

Quake 2
Quetoo
Yamagi
Q2vkpt (ray traced version for non-RTX cards)

Quake 3ish
Open Arena (compatible with q3 servers)
Xonotic (standalone game, my fave. can play Q3 maps.)
Warfork (standalone)
DeFRag (movement/trick jumping standalone.)

Half Life 1 DM
Adrenaline Gamer

Half Life 1 SP
GoldSRRC package (unpatched version with all the fun bs, plus mods and maps.)
Steam version is only $10 but bhop is capped at 550 and a lot of fun things are patched out. You get access to TFC etc with this as well tho.

Half Life 2 SP
Ghosting Mod (unpatched 1.0 version with fwd bhop, prop flying etc and some speedrunning mods)

Counter Strike pre-retail beta
CS beta 6.1 (wall bangs everywhere ;) )

Unreal Tournament 99/goty
UT99 download
patch instructions

Half Life 1 and expansions, and I think all the MP mods like TFC, are free to play on Steam for the next 7 weeks. If you've never played them, might as well. Opposing Force is the best imo.

Is this PC-based or can it be played on PS4?
