I don’t even like first person shooters all that much — but when I swung by the office to drop off my weekly groceries, I ended up getting roped into a LAN game of Quake 3. Despite the fact that I totally suck at first person shooters, I have to admit that it was actually kind of fun.

Why Quake 3? Well, it’s one of the only games that the Mac, Linux and Windows people in the office can all play without too much trouble. If it’s cross platform, who really cares if it’s 8 years old?

I’ll probably stick with my DS Lite in the long run. Still, the occasional pick-up game might be nice to blow off some steam every now and then.
