“Connecting with that community is really what it’s all about. QuakeCon is built for it. First, there’s the giant tournament … hey, what’s a Quake convention without playing a ton of Quake? Then there are the seminars and talks from id Software and prominent members of the Quake development community. Nothing’s more inspiring than some tips from the pros. Usually the highlight of it all is a speech from John Carmack, arguably the best 3D coder in PC gaming, where attendees can get a personal glimpse inside the game engine and the mind of its creator… In the end, it’s an exhausting affair. If you’re not beaten to a pulp by the continuous weekend of Quake playing, the stifling Texas heat will probably render you unconscious. If you’re lucky, you’ll live to make it again next year. If you’re unlucky, the giant insects will devour you… Here’s to QuakeCon!” — Fargo
