It's a shame Starsiege itself never got the proper funding to challenge Mechwarrior, so much wasted potential there.

Great game. I still have a copy of the board game here somewhere.

Between Ultima Online, StarCraft and Tribes I cannot think of three more influential games that completely solidified me in PC gaming. Tribes got me into first person shooters, and was way ahead of its time IMO. I did not get the big-map-with-vehicles FPS vibe again until BF 1942.

Love it.

Exactly. Tribes will always hold a special place in my heart. I pine for the silky smooth feeling of gliding along the terrain at insane speeds. I had a harder time getting into Tribes 2, but Tribes: Vengeance was surprisingly great.

I played Tribes obsessively and it was my favorite game from the time it was launched till Everquest. If I hadn't became addicted EQ it would have taken a hell of a game to pull me away.

I completely agree. There was a lot of potential in that universe and maybe if Sierra/Dynamix would have lasted past 2002 we would have got to see it.

Tribes was the best gameplay series I ever played.

Always loved BF42. Still by far the best competitive game out of the Battlefield series to this day. I used to compete in it in both CAL & TWL back in 03/04.

Dammit. I wanted to post the illustrated "Tribes" history as told by PA, but the original images are too big and will break the page. So, here's the less elegant alternative:
