First off I’d like to say that my all time favorite Quake monster is the fiend. I love fighting them in groups of 3 or so. Though I’m not a fan of most Quoth monsters (especially that annoying stupid green blobby thing), I do like the Gaunt. Their echoing screech is eerie and awesome, as well as all their bat-iness and cool wings. I’d have to say that the Gaunt is probably my 2nd favorite. The Drole’s death animation is one of my favorites though, right up there with the death knight falling to his knees.
My favorite Quake map in original Quake is the Dismal Oubliette, though Azure Agony(blue perfection! well sorta) and The Hateful Place are tied for 2nd.
My all time favorite Quake map ever though is the Black Cathedral in Mission Pack 1 which is one of the best and most thoughtfully laid out levels ever from the original series. I love the clock and the bell toll as well as the thunder claps joined by lightning flashes from the windows.
My all time favorite custom Quake map ever is the Marcher Fortress. I’d have to say that the Marcher Fortress’s fights are definitely the most epic Quake battles ever!
My favorite Quake weapon is the Double-Barrel Shotgun. You may be thinking, “What??? Not the Rocket Launcher or the Thunderbolt!!!” Frankly I don’t use the Thunderbolt hardly at all, usually only for Shamblers and Vores and more powerful enemies, although it’s great for spawns. I’m rather accident prone with the rocket launcher. I end up eating my rockets a lot. I love using the DB Shotgun with Quad Damage the best because I just plain like blasting everything into bits with a shotgun, especially zombies! GgrrrikichikikOIMP!!!
