YMMV: Quake III: Arena
  • Epileptic Trees: Is Sarge, the supposedly main character of the game, B.J.Blazkowicz himself?
  • Fandom Rivalry: With Unreal Tournament, again, and to day debates still rage about which one was the superior FPS. It's a friendlier rivalry than most though, and many of each game's players also frequent the other.
    • History generally records Quake 3 as the winner although neither franchise has aged well. Quake lost it's title as king of multi-player FPS to Counter-Strike and eventually Call of Duty as the realistic modern warfare trope started to develop, while Unreal Tournament tried to reinvent itself as a Battlefield style vehicle based game but didn't get anywhere near the popularity of Battlefield 1942 which was released several years earlier.
  • Game Breaker: The three new weapons from Team Arena: the Nailgun, the Chaingun and the Prox Launcher.
  • Most Annoying Sound: "You have taken the lead! You are tied for the lead! You have lost the lead! You are tied for the lead! You have lost the lead! You are tied for the lead! You have taken the lead! You are tied for the lead! You have taken the lead! You are tied for the lead! You have lost the lead! You are tied for the lead! You have lost the lead! You are tied for the lead! You have taken the lead! You are tied for the lead! You have taken the lead! You are tied for the lead! You have lost the lead! You are tied for the lead! You have lost the lead! You are tied for the lead! You have taken the lead! You are tied for the lead!"
  • Nausea Fuel:
    Cadavre: I let you hit me because I like to watch the pus run.
  • That One Boss: Xaero. To summarize, he takes the Railgun and ALWAYS HIT, and if he's close to you, he can simply waste you with the BFG or the Rocket Launcher. Oh, and did we mention that he's hard to hit? Try playing in Nightmare.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: Every single change made to Quake Live inevitably leads to dozens of forum posts complaining about the change, even if it arguably leads to better balance, and even if the complainers have nothing better to back up their opinions with than "It belongs that way".
