Playing Quake 3, Half-Life and Unreal On Vintage PC Hardware

Vintage? It's not like these guys are trying to play these games on a 1960s computer with a cathode tube display and paper tape input/output. They are playing it on the hardware that was new when these games shipped. 😕

Across this special DF Retro Let's Play, we'll be running Windows 98 on original hardware, installing games from original, physical CDs (remember those installer dialogues?) and seeing just how performant two of the most powerful 3D accelerators of the era actually were - the classic 3DFX Voodoo 2 and underdog Nvidia's Riva TNT2 Pro.
