The 100 Greatest Games | 71 | Quake


Developed by id Software - the folks that kick-started the first-person blaster genre with Doom - Quake was the spiritual inheritor to the company's ferocious classic, and became the standard by which all multiplayer shooters are judged. Arriving at a time when the internet was becoming accessible to everyone, Quake was one of the first quality blasters that could be played online, in turn helping to establish a global geek network of slavering fanboys, many of whom still meet up for the annual QuakeCon convention in Dallas, Texas. Fact.

Memorable for...
Mods. Quake presented fans with unprecedented freedom to modify the game and make it their own, leading to hundreds of new maps, weapons and monsters, along with completely new ways to waste hundreds of hours of your free time.
