by ARGcast

David goes on a rampage with author David L. Craddock to discuss the history and impact of the first person shooter franchise Quake, and his latest book project that covers it all!

With the evolution of first person shooters over the years, it can be easy to forget where they largely came from. One thing for certain is that David Craddock, author of Rocket Jump and countless other video game related books, hasn’t forgotten! Join us as we discuss the ins and outs of id Software during the time they released Quake, and changed the FPS landscape forever.
