Top CTF Maps
1:02 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

GameSpy has an interesting new article posted which discusses what they
consider to be the top 10 Capture the Flag maps of all time. This very popular
gametype, first made popular by Quake 1, has been included with many major
multiplayer titles the past few years. While the top 10 listed here aren't all
available on the Mac, you can try out most of them (including the maps for the Quake series,
UT, and SiN). Here's an excerpt from the article, showing just how difficult
it was to come up with the 10 best:

Choosing these ten, however, was not an easy feat. Calm discussions with other CTF diehards at GameSpy HQ quickly dissolved into rage-filled screaming matches. Eyes twitched. Veins bulged. Spittle flew.

"I really liked for Quake 2, that was a great one. You know, with the lava down in between and the secret route into the other base?" I'd say.

"WHAT!?! Are you insane?" was the reply. "That map was awful! The bases weren't symmetrical, red had MUCH easier access to rockets, there was that stupid quad up on the ledge near the elevator, the main corridor into base was so tight you couldn't fit two people in it and then there was….."

With such classics like 'Facing Worlds,' 'Forgotten Mines,' and 'McKinley
Revival' (one of my personal faves), this list is sure to bring back some great
CTF memories, if not a few debates...
