Weekly Video Game Track: Defector

There is a game that always seemed to fly under the radar with what was popular, but it was what I chose as my favorite shooter for a while.  Unreal Tournament III kept the arcade shooter alive during the time where more realistic shooters like Call of Duty, Halo, and Battlefield were reigning.  I remember working at a game store and playing some Unreal Tournament III when a kid, who was there pretty regularly, walked up behind me and asked what game I was playing.  I told him that it was Unreal Tournament III.  He then asked if it was a new game.  I told him that it was a few years old (at that point).  He then proceeded to sit down as I went to clock in to start working and played for hours.
