Quake 1 Done 100% Quickest

Quake 1 Done 100% Quickest is a run through all of Quake on Nightmare skill, going through the levels as fast as possible, killing every single monster and finding every single secret in every single map of Quake. This is the sequel to the very popular - and outdated - 'Quake done 100% Quicker' which was released way back on the 5th of January, 2000. Speedrunning has come a long way since then.

Much more (mostly Quake 3) video from the excellent Shaolin Productions here.


    The original QDQ (or maybe QDQuicker? I can’t remember which is my favorite) is something I go back and watch every couple years because it’s just such a nice example of the genre, with the speedy stuff more about really elegant/audacious use of rocket- and grenade-jumping and exploiting mapping decisions than glitching things in the blink of an eye. I love the elevator scene as one of the notable forced pauses; it stands out so much amidst the GO GO GO that it creates a nice moment of balance.

    By contrast, the Portal in 10 minutes run is something from the mouth of an elder god. It’s fantastic as a thing to pull off, but it’s also utterly unwatchable because it’s just a long string of glitches and quick turns and the discontinuities are impossible to follow unless you know already all the crazy exploits involved.

  2. The effort and meticulous nature of these things still blows my mind, and I’m not exactly the least meticulous guy out there.
