We Already Have Our Citizen Kane – Quake’s Legacy

For many years, gamers and game critics have been looking for a game they could uphold as an example that would validate video games as an art medium. Often, they have looked to Citizen Kane for guidance. Citizen Kane, for the uninitiated, is a film regarded as one of the most important and influential of all time. But before a “Citizen Kane of video games” can be identified, it is necessary to understand why Citizen Kane is so important to the medium. In short, Citizen Kane was a technical marvel for its time, and it changed the rules of how films are made. But while many are waiting for a video game to be produced that can match this achievement, one has already long since secured its legacy by doing exactly that. Its name is Quake. (Culture, Quake)
