Counter Strike, Quake and Unreal Tournament still have huge communities :O

Somewhat, but Valve is pulling the same shit they're doing with TF2, Dota, and Portal 2 with CS:GO along with hosting HORRIBLE official "Competitive" servers that can't even register 80% of my shots, despite being SWIMMING in money.
quake
Hardly
Unreal Tournament
No, UT2004 is completely dead. Nothing but a couple 24/7 DM-Rankin servers, stupid mods like sniper camping, ballistic weapons, and some zark shit nobody plays, but the owner won't take down the server. Then there's a couple of Team Arena Master servers which is a terrible mod/gamemode.
On occasion a decent deathmatch server is populated. If not, I have to wait for the leader of this group I'm in to host UT2004.

UT99 isn't all that populated, if at all. I don't play it a whole lot.

But HUGE is DRASTICALLY overstating the size of the community for any of these games, save for CS.

Oh these games do have pretty large and active communities. Doesn't implement they're playing the game. Same for TimeSplitters. ;)

On Topic:
I'd like to see another Bulletstorm or Brink. Those games stood out from the masses.
Time to unleash the arse-kickulator!

Bulletstorm and Brink were panned by critics and gamers alike. I don't see why people hate TF2 so much, it's got a server for everyone and you don't get penalised for ditching a crap server.

You know there's a quote button, right?
And whether they're playing them or not, Quake and especially UT are pretty dead. Also, I think you mean imply, not implement.

And Bulletstorm was a pretty boring game, if you ask me. Not a whole lot going for it.

Because Valve RUINED TF2, both the game, and the community. In regards to the servers, it's all just 24/7 DUSTBOWL DUSTBOWL DUSTBOWL 24/7 MOUNTAINLAB 24/7 ORANGE 100% CRITS 24/7 2FORT 24/7 TURBINE

There aren't any servers that actually run map rotation. Why the hell would I want to play the same map every minute of every day.

Have you actually searched through the server list?

There's normally more orange, but I try to put any I see on the blacklist.

It does help to order by ping and exclude full servers.

No that's a terrible idea because I want to join a server that's populated and full servers frequently have people leaving.

I don't join anything with ridiculously high ping. I hardly even play TF2 anymore after what Valve has done to it.

The best servers have 10-20 players. Why are you so cynical?
