"QuakeWorld Giblets: Quake truly is one of the most important video games ever. Not only is a brilliant one-player game, a magnificent multi-player game, and completely customizable, but it's also the first to have such an impact on world-wide internet gaming. QuakeWorld is the new free upgrade which shows us the true future of video games. You can look however you want, you can call yourself whatever you want, you can travel the world from your bedroom, and you can conquer QuakeWorld with your clan of killers! In QuakeWorld, you get to be what you always wanted to be – in real life you may be a 10-year-old in a wheelchair, but in QuakeWorld you can be Baron Rocketdeath – one of the most feared warriors in the world, taking on anyone who dares challenge you, while looking like the hardest person anyone's ever met. Soon, all video games will be like this."
