I've noticed an increasing amount of spelling, grammar, punctuation, and plain missing word errors in media lately. On a very noticeable level. Being an editor must be nice. They don't seem to do anything.

Wow, that's indeed a very badly written article. I almost get the impression that it was written in a different language and then translated with some help from Google Translate.

The Quake Engine was the first 3D game engine that used three dimensional figures instead of two dimensional sprites. -yeah right.

Maybe my memory deceives me but wasn't Q1 indeed the first truly 3D game, instead of 2.5D?

Yes, although the Dark Forces engine did have support for 3D models, it didn't really use them.

Yeah, I played one of those on my 8086. But you could only move in a two-dimensional plane so it wasn't fully 3D either.

Ah, right. I thought we had moved on to the wider scope of 3D in general, not just models. Mea culpa.

Did descent 1 and quake 1 come out in the same year?

I'd think one of those two would have been to first to be "all 3d" albeit software 3d.
