15 years today. Seems like only yesterday I was downloading Episode 1 on my 56K modem.

I recently played through Quake again, with a little help from the Darkplaces mod and the Rygel Ultra texture pack.  The single-player game is terribly dated, but with those mods it looks pretty good all things considered.

And according to Eurogamer, id is considering a return to the first Quake (no bloody 2, 3, or 4)

I hope they go back to a quake 1 type of game.  That was the best version

I remember having to play the game in a postage stamp size window to get it to play well. I said screw that and went out and got a Voodoo card. What a difference. Full screen and running smooth. That piece of hardware gave my computer a whole new life. I loved multiplayer back then too as I had @Home as an ISP (cable). In Quake multiplayer my pings were in the 40s while most everyone else was 200+ with the 56k modems. The insanely low pings made me quite a menance. Multiplayer mods like Team Fortress and Jail Break were so fun and gave so much extra life to Quake. Good times.

This was the very first game I ever pre-ordered.  I remember ordering it directly from Id and getting so excited when it arrived in the mail.  The coolest thing about it was that not only did the CD contain the game, but you could also stick it in your CD player and it doubled as the soundtrack.
