Quake 3 Arena Dreamcast prototype, 6 different versions !!!

Do you remember the heyday of FPS at the end of 90, Wolfenstein, Doom, Duke Nukem, Quake, what titles have marked and influenced video games?

Unlike the N64 and its legendary Goldenneye, the Dreamcast is not known to have hosted "First Person Shooters". She however tried with games like Kiss Psycho Circus or Unreeal Tournament, nothing transcendent. The controller, its grip may not be made for this type of games.

If we can remember a FPS from Sega's white lady, it's Quake 3 Arena. For once, she welcomed a major title of the ESPORT which was then in these stammerings.
