Quake

There isn't much we need to say to introduce you to Quake. It's Quake, after all.

Quake may be one of the most important games crossing the bridge between the "old" and "new" gaming worlds. It still came out as a DOS game, originally, as shareware, rendered fully in software. But it was also there to give us online multiplayer, modding, machinima, speed running, 3d acceleration, e-sports and so many more things.

It didn't invent those things, but coming at the right time, when the Internet finally became widely available as well as consumer-grade 3D accelerators, it, like no other game, encapsulates the spirit of the late 90's.

But is it a good game, even today?

I really enjoyed this episode! The guests Thanael and Garret had a lot of knowledge and great commentary about Quake. I kinda missed the Quake train growing up (went from Doom2 to Half-life) but this made me want to fire it up and see what I missed. Thanks for the great content as always!
