Doom 3 (PC) on a Voodoo 2!
I stummbled across this on DawgServ Development. Apparently, someone got the PC version of Doom 3 to work on an old 3DFX Voodoo 2 video card.
For those not in the know, a Voodoo 2 was a popular, cutting edge card around the mid to late '90's, and was essentially the card at the height of 3DFX's reign. 3DFX, which is now gone and bought out by nVidia, was the top graphics card maker of the time.
Doom 3 boasts one of the top game engines on the market today, and it has some hefty system requirements to boot. Considering it doesn't support any old 3DFX cards, the simple fact that someone got the game to work with there card is hillarious! Also, considering how old the card is, the screenshots don't look so bad.
