My name is Steve and I have been playing Quake since it was released! I can remember running Quake on a 586 in a window smaller than a modern smartphone.
Some of my favorite mapsets are, in no particular order: Honey, Zerstorer, Arcane Dimensions, Scourge of Armagon, Insomnia and Rubicon. My favorite mappers include czg, Sock and Necros.
In other news, I run a gaming channel on youtube, (And who doesn't!) which I launched a couple of months ago I have done a full playthrough of the original Quake, and of the mapset Honey, by czg. More is planned.
Please feel free to check out those playthroughs. I have done playthroughs of quite a few other games, but I have put the most time and work into my Quake playthroughs. with lots of extra screenshots and general silliness!
Please feel free to check out some of my work!

Thanks for reading this, and I am so pleased to continue to download and play such exceptional quality content for Quake. Frankly the level of creativity, design and skill that goes into many of these mapsets is as good as, if not better than what is available in many commercial games. It is massively appreciated.
