Why has Quake remained in the public consciousness while Unreal has not?

>idsoftware was an established powerhouse within the edgy kewl kidz hipster scene of the late 90s
id software was completely mainstream by the late 90's. Their games weren't for edgy hipsters at all, they were for normal FPS enjoyers. The hipsters were jerking off over games like Marathon and Rise of the Triad. This alternate history you've created is bizarre and hilarious.
>Epic gained the upper hand with Unreal, it was beyond anything seen up to that point
Unreal was quite good but it wasn't that impressive with Quake II already on the market.

No, a dodge jump is when you jump in the middle of a dodge to gain a momentum boost. Dodge jumping is as important in UT2004 as strafe jumping is in Quake.

Last month, we had a comfy thread of anons sharing (mostly) retro game music that would sound good on the old school weather channel.
https://desuarchive.org/vr/thread/8810017/
https://battaglia.ddns.net/twc/twc2.html
That thread culiminated in this based playlist of 191 YouTube tracks.
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL_6TxgIrAWl7m-b0fdSgMhF3NbVYKLzgh

During that thread I mentioned I wanted to make an album based on this, and after many hours of finding better quality versions and sorting out proper track names and sources, this is the end result.

This album is available in three formats distributed as a 7z archive split into 200MB parts:
>320kbps CBR MP3 at original sample rates
Part 1: https://files.catbox.moe/748mxs.001
Part 2: https://files.catbox.moe/s0ts4g.002

It's just a 7zip archive.
You know how to use 7zip right?

Fix the file extensions by changing them from .001 to .7z.001 and so-on, and they'll all need the same filename like music.7z.001, music.7z.002, until all parts from that split archive are present.

My neighborhood is having yard sales this week and I saw that a few were selling some CRTs; what should I generally be looking for and around how much should I be paying? I haven't used or owned a CRT since I was a kid.

Any other retro vidya or goodies to be on the lookout for?

Brand names are pretty accurate and useful when it comes to CRTs. Your familiar electronics brands (Sony, JVC, Panasonic, Sharp) will be of at least respectable quality and worth a look. If it's Zenith or some crap you've never heard of just leave it be.

Inputs: for USAbros your ideal is a TV with component video input (red green and blue for video), that's the best you're gonna get on a consumer set. 6th generation consoles (+Wii) look awesome over component. Even PS3 and Xbox 360 are serviceable on a CRT with component.
Next up is S-Video which I'd say is 90% of component in terms of image quality. Very good for 4th-6th gen consoles.
After that you have your basic composite input (only the yellow video). This should be your bare minimum for image quality. Note that if a TV only has RF (coaxial) input do not bother with it. That's garbage.

I personally would not pay for a CRT that doesn't have S-video or component input. There are so many free composite-only sets on facebook marketplace. I'm a hardware guy but I use ODEs and Flashcarts; I would say be on the lookout for accessories but most controllers you find at a garage sale will probably be heavily worn and not worth picking up.
>>
Everything was basically sold out by the time I finally got home. All I could find was a small Toshiba (probably 13" or so) with only 2 composite slots instead of the usual 3 and an audio jack, no component or anything else

Is that worth it or no?

I'm looking for an old ps1 game, the aesthetic of it was like picrel or that's how I remember it, the level I played was one of those where you fly around crossing some light circles.

How is that being disingenuous? The point is Saturn Resident Evil isn't a bad port and it's a perfectly acceptable version to play. You're not really missing a whole lot by playing it over the PS1 version, just as you argue that you're not missing much playing the PS1 version over the Saturn version.
