TF2's Great Grandfather. (quake I)
I was looking to buy Quake from the steam store, but I cannot decide what part I should buy. I would love to buy Quake I alone, but I feel like I would be missing out. I don't really want to buy the whole collection, though.

TF2's Great Grandfather is just Grandfather, the MOD for Quake 1, Team Fortress. The Tf1 mod is free, and Quake 1 is a great game, just buy it by itself and also try to find "The ultimate Quake 1 Patch" online....

Quake I's first expansion, Scourge of Armagon is pretty darn awesome, too.
You should get together with Quake I.

TBH I don't find TF2 has that big a connection or things in common to Quake especially over any other shooter.

Quake 1 is very crude, brutal, straight-forward. It's a base for almost everything we see in FPS games these days in terms of content and terminology. TF already has the whole classes thing and game modes similar to what they are to TF2.*

Quake 2 was big with the graphics when it came out and also the multiplayer was more diverse. The gameplay remained brutal but more defined and sophisticated. I enjoyed playing Q2 singleplayer. The mods were awesome and some like Action Quake 2 were something that started to drive PC gaming more towards modern and realistic style.

Half-Life was awesome. It was like Quake in HD done with more sophisticated style. AND there was a name and story for the guy you were playing as. Massive community with custom mapping and beginner friendly modding made the popularity explode. TFC already had many things that are present in TF2.*

If you're thinking about multiplayer I can't recommend trying to get into Q1, Q2 or even Half-Life anymore. The communities are pretty limited and people have been playing the same outdated fossils of games for over 10 years. I was once part of those communities and don't mean disrespect, but the people who still play the games are the ones that never decided to start fresh move on. Steam made things a bit better and I'm not saying they didn't welcome newcomers but they've sat alone in the ivory tower far too long to be a blast playing with, so to speak.

So if you do want to play TF/TFC I think you should be prepared to mostly find a very small amount of players most of which are far above the skill level you could ever reach.

But anyway for simply a "good" FPS game I recommend Quake 2 and Half-Life and also Quake (or even Doom) because they have certain originality and historical bonus.

I didn't think anyone still sold Quake 1. I think you can get it for free at quakeone.com

Quake is sold on steam, and so is Doom.

Keep in mind that you need to grab the soundtrack seperately.
Funny enough, it is available for free on the Internet Archive.

I personally play it with the music ripped from my father's old Quake CD.

If you do not mind waiting, Steam sometimes holds a sale on the entire Quake collection. During an instance like this, you could get just about every game in the series for a good price.

Yes, I know about this. I got L4D2 for free on a sale (not really a 'sale' , now is it?). My friend bought G-Mod for under 2$ once (that lucky bast@rd.)
