'What cons and rags said', basically, but a few points:
By this do you mean QW, or Winquake? Because we have a fairly good idea about how much QW is played, because the scene has got to the stage where everyone knows everyone else, even those dodgy cheating mofos in Spain and Russia
In response to Rags post, Quake 1 is still played, maybe more than you think...
If you mean Winquake/NQ, then um, sorry but that doesn't really count. Quakeworld evolved, NQ didn't. Quakeworld is worth playing online, NQ er isn't.
