Default Quake 4 parallels to...Quake 1? (possible minor spoilers)

We all know that Quake 4 is the sequel to Quake 2, but how many of you recognized some of the parallels to Quake 1? Some of the monsters and weapons were taken directly from Quake 1 and then modernized. Obviously there's the Nail Gun for one.

And as for the monsters, the Zombies are obvious. But also, the Spider-like enemies who shoot seeking missiles, they seem very reminscent of the Vores from Quake 1 (even their main attack is the same). I don't remember the spider enemies being in Quake 2, although I could be mistaken. Also the guy with the big guy with the flamethrower/flameblaster, I notice his AI really is to try to get up in your face with his chainsaw thing and only use the flamethrower if he can't reach you. Could that be the follow-up to the Death Knight from Quake 1? Or is he just a new version of a Quake 2 monster I forgot about?

If those enemies were actually in Q2 and I just didn't remember, then maybe they were original conversions from Q1, but it just took me another 7 years to realize it!
