First contact to speedrunning (when, how etc.)?
In the summer of '98 I found QdQr on a hungarian magazine's CD,
and watched it immediately. It was amazing, and it made me so
enthusiastic that I started to make demos on my own.
Later I found SDA and started to make demos there.

Do you like Doom/Quake2/Q3A?
Doom: Not really, when I got a PC for the first time Quake was
already done, so I didn't really know Doom. I like to watch the
speedruns for it, though.
Quake2: Yes, very much, I love it. Probably not so much like
Quake1, but it has a really nice Single Player story. I especially
love its first mission pack, The Reckoning.
Quake3: Unfortunately there's no Single Player in the game, and
I didn't have any chance to play it via net so far.

What do you think of Quake now?
Just the same like others. It's the best game for speedrunning.
