It's surprising to me that no other Experts have pointed out that the very popular game, Quake, has made a source-code release.

There are many different places you can go to join groups working on the source code.  One is http://quake.sourceforge.net/ .  Search the web for "Open source" and Quake and you'll find them all!

I'm not sure if you should learn from this kind of thing, though. You asked for a "real game", and I can't imagine anything more "real" than a multi-platinum best seller. But learning from a poorly commented source code base is not such a great idea. You'll see the results, sure; but you'll have no idea why the developers cut all the corners that they did--or have any inkling of when it's appropriate to do so in your own programming.

I don't know of any such codebases available to the public.

By the way, if DirectX was a requirement, why didn't you mention that in your original question?
