Nowadays, it would be a lower physical footprint. From what I read, you can play quake on a raspberry pi/HDMI LCD monitor (I have a spare Pi3+, so I'm gonna give it a go, more for curiosity than anything else). A single 8-foot folding table could support up to 8 people. Most modern laptops also have the chops to run Quake 1/2 quite well.

24 and 32-port switches are cheap (Quake 1 is limited to a max of 16 players, and I think QuakeWorld was 32), everyone brings their own 20-foot ethernet cable/keyboard/mouse, and you have a freakin Quake party. Smile | :)
