Quake Remains the Pioneer
Wednesday, 19 October, 2011 - by scar3crow
There is a nice article on 1Up about how Quake changed games forever citing the numerous innovations it brought simultaneously, innovations that would have to have come piecemeal over a longer time span otherwise. It cites how many contemporary titles, such as the Call of Duty franchise and Valve catalog, still rely on such code and provides views into the construction of the game through recent commentary from numerous people, particularly Romero, Willits and Abrash.

Give it a read, it in some ways degenerates into a short form Masters of Doom, but it is very nice to see such a mainstream games site giving acknowledgement to one of the most important games out there, and how it is still relevant to this very moment.
