I don't think the writer meant to imply that directX was responsible for the visuals, but it did handle input, sound, and often any 2d drawing that needed to be done (DirectDraw) for many games of that generation. Quake may have been a bad example, as I'm not sure if it used directX at all.

The standard for 3d at the time was definitely OpenGL, direct3D was quite a ways from maturity. Really the only thing wrong with the sentence is the mention of video cards.
