Allowing for a moment’s aside, Quake 3 Arena on the iPad should pull in a whole new generation of gamers who missed the golden years of first person shooters.

Unless you’re not super-excited and/or nostalgic for a classic ultra-violent shooter, Quake 3 Arena is hot and ready for relentless combat.
