Video game documentary channel Noclip recorded an incredible documentary about Doom 2016 and while they were at iD headquarters also shot a short with Tim Willits about the history of Quake. Quake is a pretty special game to me because it's the first shooter I played over a LAN with my friends. At the time I only had the demo which meant we could only get about 3 people in the game at a time but it was a ton of fun anyway. Later on Half-life and Counter-Strike dominated LAN parties but until I was able to buy Half-Life Quake was my LAN shooter of choice.

Awesome! Thanks for sharing! I have some good memories of playing most of the Quake games. I missed out on some, though. I intend to replay them soon as I got them on sale recently. I'm not sure I ever played with mods or other players. Well, I think I played Quake 3 with my cousin via the Internet, those memories are kind of old now. LOL I'm looking forward to revisiting the games and especially checking out source mods and other more modern updates the games have received.
