Last night I downloaded Quake III Arena on Steam. I always looked back at it as my favorite Id game, but it had been many years since I had actually played it. There are a few polish things that I would nitpick today, but it was like dropping a quarter in a classic arcade game.

I played through the first couple tiers against the bots with a smile on my face. Yeah, I’m still proud of this game.

It is laudable that the PC ecosystem lets you easily go play a game from 1999 and everything Just Works.
