Favorite trick in a demo?
Every trick is cool - that's why the game is so fun! I think maybe Stubby's NH of e2m6 has some of the most impressive and unique tricks in a single demo.

Favorite QdQ release?
The Rabbit Run / DOTG.
QD100%Qlite2 will also be pretty amazing when it's done.

Favorite original Quake map?

Favorite custom map?
all of the "CZG" maps, especially czg07b

Most annoying monster/map?
all mosters are annoying when you're trying to make them behave a certain way :8
map, I'd say e2m6

Doom was cool, and I played through quake 2, it was OK. Haven't played Q3

What do you think of Quake now?
the best (and only) computer game I play.

87.2% free from quake-corruption. Seems a little innacurrate!
