It wouldn’t be a stretch to say that video games have come a long way in the last 20 years. Hell, even just the genre of first person shooters has evolved considerably over that time. And right at the start, it was the Quake series that brought about a refined take on multiplayer and arguably spawned the concept of e-sports. With all that in mind, I was determined to make the pilgrimage to Dallas to experience the mecca of gaming. A place where gaming culture, and my kin, are celebrated. Dude, I went to Quakecon.
