@crowpersona I don't really remember quake-likes, but I sure do remember discussing doom-likes.
@jkb indeed, actually between quake and doom it seemed like a matter of preference :) but they did indeed coexist as *genre defining titles*
@crowpersona They did indeed, but I think another factor is important: back then there were fewer game releases each year, there was no need for broad categories to describe them.
It's funny that you mention "diablo-like", because Diablo is a rogue-like.
@crowpersona Those were great gaming days. We used the same expressions in my country.
