Last week, OpenShift let the open-source PaaS community in on a little project some of their devs have been working on.  It seems that some classic gamers decided to get Quake 2, (from the creators of Wolfenstein 3D and Doom) up and running on OpenShift.  Here are some details from the OpenShift blog: 

We've been adding a lot of great features to OpenShift lately but we've also been working on some cool demos behind the scenes. The OpenShift operations team loves this cloud stuff and we love pushing it to its limits. We've also got a few gamers on hand, so with that in mind we worked to get quake2-gwt up and running on OpenShift. This version of Quake 2 runs in your web browser.

This is one of those ah-hah moments for some people who haven't seen much HTML5 content before. Everything in the demo is running either on OpenShift or in your browser.

You can get further details, including all the necessary code, at the original post.
