id Software President Leaves Company

IGN:Todd Hollenshead, president of the Doom and Rage developer, is no longer with id Software. (iD Software, Industry, Todd Hollenshead)

I'm not surprised because ID is just one big failure in the modern gaming industry living off past hits

I don't know... I'm playing RAGE right now (huge backlog), and I'm enjoying. I know it got mediocre reviews, but it's pretty good so far.

Despite the game's easy to be overlooked shortcomings, I found Rage to be very satisfying. The combat is excellent. I know it's a little short and the ending leaves more to be desired but overall I really enjoyed the game. No it wasn't absolutely jaw dropping fantastic and it's not a 9 on a scale of 1-10. But a 7.5 or 8 would do it justice.

It is for what it is for companies who will stick to something that they know will work. But sadly times has changed and as for id software...there is no room for outdated shooters.

Rage was nothing like sticking with what they knew , it was actually a big gamble , albeit a pretty average one in quality and fan reception

I was under the impression that Carmack was president

I'd really like Carmack to come out and say his opinion on the next gen consoles. While he's a has been now, he's never held back on the strengths and weaknesses of consoles.

As in, when was the last time he was involved in a good game?

Rage wasn't that good, a little over-hyped
Eiffel  +   705d ago
It was well received as it sits on an 81% on metacritic. It was good.

Yea, I'm actually surprised he didn't leave sooner.

Id Soft hasn't really been on the high heels of gaming recently... They really need to release Doom 4 already..

The last great ID game i played was Return to Castle Wolfenstein back in late 2001 or early 02 on PC, great game.. one of the first major FPS's i played back then. Online play was really fun too because i'd only just gotten broadband back then. Doom 3 was ok, but not near Half Life 2 quality.

And RtCW wasn't even developed by iD, but rather by Gray Matter (who's team was later thrown into Treyarch, if my memory serves me correctly). I think Nerve did the multiplayer too, so... iD didn't really do anything. :/

i just googled his name and found a website (toddhollenshead.com) that appears to have been hacked. Don't know what to make of it.
