Hah, I was just going to say this. I always hated AVP2 for the cartoon comic visual style, but MP gameplay was a thrill. I played exclusively as Alien and had a blast. Miss the times as it is not played largely any more and I can't get it running properly on my Win7 machine (horrible mouse behaviour makes it unplayable).
Played Quarantine to death and A lesser Fate was the best. I was virtually flying across the map all the time dominating the scoreboard.
I suck horribly at competitive games, but in AVP2 I reached my peak. During the best days I often had a double score compared to the second on the scoreboard. In fact I hate player vs. player MP gaming (love cooperative), but AVP2 is going to be missed.
My hopes were AVP2010 and ACM. Both a disappointment.
