I really miss what R6 and GR used to be.
I loved Rainbow Six 3 Gold but I was never good at or patient enough for the planning phases. Also never played multiplayer, but would love to revisit it.
The R6 franchise and how its been dumbed down over the years for the console peasants.
What are you using to run Rainbow Six 1 for this footage?
Good memories from this video. I played them all. I wish they would make a remastered version of Rainbow Six Raven Shield and the Add-On Athena Sword with the graphic environment of today. To make a complete plan before the mission and to check the plan before was fantastic. It was possible to finish a mission with no casualties in the team. My favorite game forever.
Rainbow 6 siege is coming to mobile.
Does anyone actully play Quarantine?
Incredible video, thank you for investing so much time into this. Nostalgic for me having started playing in 1998. Rogue spear was my favourite. Timeless!
Rainbow Six Siege was never a Rainbow Six.
Still waiting for a successor of Rainbow Six after Vegas 2.
For Raven Shield, the most useful accessory is smoke. Flash bang is only useful in small-to-mediums room free of obstacles. Smoke is magical anywhere. Throw a smoke on the door before opening it, and you will be safe.
Made a load of xbox live friends back in the day playing rainbow six 3.. one of my first experiences with online gaming and voice chat. I miss the days of persistent lobbies. You could stay in the same lobby even if everyone else left. So you’d be playing with the same guys for hours and hours and having a blast. Someone would drop out and someone else would join in thinking they’re in a lobby full of best friends chating away, when in reality they’ve just been playing together for the last 6 hours lol.
Hey everyone – thanks for tuning in! This one took me a long time to piece together simply because of all the recent game releases in the past month, and the fact that I just built a brand new computer from scratch a couple weeks ago. Next documentary is planned for November – but I have a few more reviews and comparisons planned until then, along with my first "Studio Tour" to celebrate reaching 300,000 subscribers!

R6 ON PS1 – BEST GAMES IN THE SERIES
Cease needed to have a campaign like rainbow six Vegas 2
Are we ever gonna get a story co-op with online modes basically it kinda sucks without it tbh
Rainbow six isn’t a tactical shooter anymore it’s a fortnite type game filled with cringey 14 year old boys screaming slurs at each other
Vegas 2 is still the best rainbow six game
Rogue Spear online PvP sniper matches were the best, until people started to cheat mod the map to where they would be underneath the ground or on your side of the map.
"redisgned to for better use with a gamepad" Lmfao keyboard user mask off moment
Rainbow Six 2015
Thats how IT should be today
Cancelling Patriots was the stupidest decision they ever made, because Activision didn’t care about the News media criticism with the first Modern Warfare which in the first scene, a president in the middle east get executed in a live stream, and "No Russian" in the first Modern Warfare 2, and Ready or Not been one of the best selling games on Steam despite of the heavy criticism from gaming journalists. Not forgetting Modern Warfare 2019 "Piccadilly", and "Hometown" missions, and Modern Warfare 2 2022 "Alone" mission. Therefore, Patriots would’ve been the best Rainbow Six game ever. But nooo, let us throw our money in the trash and make Rainbow Six Extinction 🤦🏻♂️
Seige is trash boring trash.
This history was remarkably detailed
The Division was my favorite , and New Vegas 2 on last gen
and now people just wiggle spam through doors lol. What a fall from grace
Fantastic Video my dude❗
There’s a mobile game called rainbow six shadow vanguard
Rainbow six 3 is the best that ever came and true to the original formula of the starters, change my mind
Rainbow Six Vegas 2 is a classic, my fav
Why is captain price on the rainbow team in 40:55??
I think Rainbow Six Lockdown was the first one I played on XBOX. Loved that game
Man a lot of memories from my childhood.. I was never a fan of shooter games but the planning portion of this game really sucked me in. Spent hours on planning a mission over and over so I can merely observe and complete the objectives just by sending waypoint commands. The original RB6 was a brilliant game for the time.
I want a new rainbow 6 Vegas or something like it…..
Alot of people play rainbow six vegas 2 but the first game was much better the weapons actually feel stronger
Raven Shield LAN parties were the shit. Never had as much fun with the newer games especially siege.
Wow. Half way through the video before getting to where I started with the 6. I guess I didn’t know.
Also, huge problem with all online multiplayer games? Time. They will ALL be obsolete when new games come out. No one will be playing the old games. Sad. 😥
Hearing about those early games literlaly gives me goose bumps dude I loved them so much, the OG Rainbow 6 was so amazing.
Seige’s move to being just a competitive story between operitives was a good story because the most maps looked like shoot houses.
ravenshield on pc was my first shooter ever and it has still a special place in my heart
Respect to seige for having some of the best looking operators ever seen in a modern day MP game
Loved playing Rainbow 6 back in the day on that good ol 56k dial up. Good time man
I loved the old style rainbow six games. I hope the next rainbow game is like this.
from good to call of duty 😑
The game started losing its appeal for me when it started multi-player "elimination" style play. Too many players just confused this with a Call of Duty type play. That’s why you see so many videos from content creators and its non-tactical FPS. Then add all the modding and what’s left is an abortion of the original concept.
The first Rainbow Six was incredibly advanced for its time. I remember having a very slow PC and being able to play it maxed out. The only thing that bothers me to this day is the lack of a gun model in first person.
Rogue Spear was the pinnacle of Rainbow Six awesomeness
Man I fucking loved rainbow six on the 64..I spent literal days playing that game when I was a kid
