Default Why do gamers worship John Carmack?

Doom 3 was released just a few days ago, but it's already a classic. The sequel to last decade's pioneering 3-D gore-fest Doom has drawn ringing praise from critics for its ghoulish realism; PC Gamer called it "a masterpiece of the art form." This week, the New York Times presented a great-man theory of Doom, crediting the game's creator, id Software co-founder and technical director John Carmack, as the sole force behind its success. An executive vice president of Nvidia told the Times his company designs graphics cardsówhat the computer uses to display super-realistic imagesójust to accommodate Carmack's upcoming games. They're that good. "He's a genius, a rare person," the exec gushed.

but if doom3 is anything like quake1, then you won't regret buying the game

the Quake engine was used for a truckload of games and a lot mods were made which made it into on of the best games I played
