In the 1990s, the first-person shooter was still a new genre to many, and id Software were the kings of the genre. Starting by introducing many to the genre with Wolfenstein 3-D, id created a shooter that had the player running through a 3-D maze gunning down Nazis and killi ng Hitler, and it was really all people needed in 1992. The next year, id got a little more ambitious and unleashed Doom onto the world. Allowing players more weapons and adding a vertical axis to the game, Doom took gaming by storm, with gamers all too happy to dismember the armies of Hell and play with their friends online (it got so popular many offices had to install programs onto the computers that could prevent people from playing Doom deathmatches because so many people slacked off and went online fragging each other in deathmatch.) Doom got a sequel, which got two expansions endorsed but not made by id, and a collection of levels created by fans of the games were released. It seemed like id had peaked and that there was nowhere else for id to go from here. But then Quake happened.

Quake again redefined what it meant to be a FPS and shocked the gaming world by adding a truly 3-D environment that was filled with all kinds of unique and varying types of enemies. With 4 episodes and 7 levels each, the game is smaller than Doom, but the gameplay is off the hook, balls-to-the-wall, rocket-jumping, grenade-hopping, MADNESS. I've been playing Doom and Wolfenstein for quite some time now, but Quake is better than both those games and I've only been playing it for about 3 hours, which is saying a lot because I've played over 500 hours of Doom (don't check the Steam hours, I use GZDoom.)

If you like first person shooters, buy Quake. You'd be doing yourself a favor.

One of the all time greats, from a golden age of PC Gaming.

High pace, beautiful atmosphere, and groundbreaking level design make this one a true classic.

Just buy the damn game.

So even to this day, there hasn't been a Quake more visually disgusting, and truly macabre. The weird psuedo-gothic horror of character themes and world designs haven't been visited since its debut, (except for Painkiller?) really, and overall it is a must play. It was the first fully 3d fps on pc and layed the groundwork for what we have today. I will say honestly, it is still enjoyable to this date, after slight tinkering for modern desktop resolutions, is completely enjoyable. Do you even quake? If you haven't been quaking over the porcelain throne that most of all of us use, daily. this game will surely help that next bowel movement pass with ease. I first played this game when I was 6 years old, and it's just as scary as a 25 year old manchild (age of writing this review) Dat grenade launcher sound is awful, the idle npc groans and moans are truly gutteral, flatulent, and thick, like beyonce, you gotta hear it! -Donz

This game is truly great and still stands up today. I had barely played this game when it came out and just fired it up again in 2016; As far as gameplay goes is still at the top of the heap, controls are fluid and weapons feel good but not too soggy or over powered. A must have on the list of great games.

my parents think im gay and that I watch gay porn nonstop because all they hear is the Ranger's grunting sound coming from my room,
10/10 will never stop playing.

Edit: Also, at the people being a total whiney priss complaining that "oh boohooo the game doesn't come w the soundtrack )))):< itz s0 terribul" and giving it a negative review, even though it's easily one of the best fps in history, grow a pair of balls, you dont NEED it. Yeah it's good, but it's entirely ambient and you can't hear it very well with all the loud-♥♥♥ sounds in the game anyways. some music that can easily be added shouldn't make you say that this is a bad game.
but since so many people on here like to give negative ratings based on the smallest things.

Go Here, and download/install this fanmade patch.
It patches the game with the Darkplaces engine, and adds all of the great ambient music.
