The much-anticipated follow-up to Doom, Quake was one of the first games to make use of fully polygonal graphics and hardware acceleration, and is often credited as the point of origin for many lasting trends in the FPS genre, such as standardized mouse look and the WASD control scheme.

+Multiplayer support to co-op the single player mode or to play other types of matches

Cons
-No Music comes with the game, you have to use a mod to enable the music , the reason for that is because originally the music was on disc and you had to use the disc to listen to music while playing the game
-Have to use patches to improve the visuals, since there are no graphic options
