Default Any reason to play Quake III Arena over QUAKE LIVE?

Quake III Arena is $19.99 on Steam.

Don't want to pay for a subscription to get more game modes. Want to be able to use existing maps for Quake 3, etc.

play quake live, then buy it during sale when it will be 4.99 or maybe even lower.

I think the better question is which game has active servers?

CPMA

Unless QuakeLive has that or something very similar.
Quake without instant weaponswitch and aircontrol just isn't the same.

I'd say go with Quake live, it's essentially a mash up of Q3A and Q3TA or at least it feels like it, most of the 'classic maps' appear to be in attendance. I had a ton of hassles getting Quake III running on my XP laptop and even more on my Windows 7 machine (so much so that I gave up on the windows 7 machine). So for that alone I can't recommend it.

game works fine on all oses. all you need to do is clamp OpenGL extensions. nvidia does it automatically, dunno about ati. just installed it on win7 64bit, did nothing and it worked.

Most other games its like the modding community does not really try.

You seriously don't have an old quake3 cd laying around somewhere?

The quake engine itself is free, you can even get the source code. Just copy the pak files to /baseq3

Personally I use ioquake3, and I run a dedicated server on my raspberry pi

yes, if you're playing cpma.

Otherwise, there's very good bots available, which is especially nice if you're playing some obscure mod where there's no online players at all.

I'm thinking of hosting some quake3 lan parties out in sunnyvale. I've got like 6 laptops ready to go, that'll play some mean q3, ut, starcraft1, etc.
