CVG: Doom creator John Romero has hinted that he could one day create a new game with ex-colleague John Carmack - which would be "fresh and awesome".
Romeros story makes for an interesting one though to be honest. I always enjoy reading stories about what he got up to in his moment of fame and success. He was irresponsible in the end, but he lived the high life. He is talented, he just chose a different path.
He is talented but he is also a douchebag. Who the hell calls their customers as bitches? Even if it's just for joking it's still wrong.
Umm. No. We don't want to be your "bitch" again after Daikatana. Idiot.
Doom Daikatana edition?
ah whatever...daikatana sucked...but there is no denying that iD hasn't set the multiplayer gaming world on fire since he left...Doom 3 was an absolute disaster on every level accept visually... the only iD game i really enjoyed, sans Romero, was Quake III...but it still didn't feel right to me...whatever Romero added to the original dooms style wise was an intangible asset that couldn't be lost...same for Quake I...while the quakes got better looking after his departure, they still didn't have that feel of being created by a master... no idea how to explain what I am talking about...but if you grew up with the games these two created together...you know what I mean...you put Romero and Carmack together again and you have the best of every possible part of game development...a brilliant programmer that can squeeze even weak hardware to do amazing stuff...and a game designer that will use that technology to pioneer what almost becomes standards in what a game should play like... on their own though these guys seem to struggle to live up to what they originally created...has Carmack made anything as good as Quake since?...and obviously we know Romero didn't...doom 3 for example is exactly how a company can fall apart entirely and alienate their entire fanbase when they lose their creative basis...one of the most loved franchises, and what took the genre to the masses, was flipped on its head into some sort of crappy survival horror shit show with 3 enemies on screen at once...and it was a nightmare for me... bring back a real doom...put Romero's head on a stick again and show shooter developers why you two are still the best in the genre...i'll preorder 5...
blah blah blah
i'll believe it when carmack says so , not when romero is tripping
Carmack talks too damn much. How bout you just make a freakin game and have us love it before you try to get us to love something else Carmack? Or are you not sure of your latest creation? Is it really that bad that you have to justify yourself?
Eh? It isn't Carmack talking.
Carmack doesn't have to justify anything to you. He could leave making games now and never look back. What have you achieved?
Much more than making games, thats for damn sure.
YEAH LIKE POSTING ABOUT THEM ONE N4G! Thats way more of an accomplishment! Internet High 5! Except not... like at all.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Have you done more than that? I'm assuming your response here was meant to be further up, you didn't even achieve responding to a comment :lolface:
You little kids could never get on my level. One could dream though.
That quote was tugged from an interview at: http://gamesauce.org/ Read it, it's quite good. Daikatana may have been a failure but as one of the creators of doom and quake, in that perspective he is untouchable. Ah yes, a comment on the article as well... Good work in taking a single quote and blowing it out of proportion, besides that it was pure shite.
