That's it? 0

(Author's Note: Yes, I was a UT fanboy at the time I wrote this.  I still stand by the sentiment, if not the expression.)There was a time when id Software was famous for making innovative and awesome games.

Back when the Dreamcast was on every gamer's radar, online gaming was still a relatively new thing.   Sure, plenty of PC games had featured deep online experiences, but consoles were just beginning to enter cyberspace.   The Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis had previously flirted with online gameplay, but barely anyone knew about it--even if they could afford the service.   Well, in the year 2000, the Dreamcast finally brought online gaming to the masses, and titles like Quake III Arena helped pu...
