"[Carmack] assumed the publisher was responsible for destroying small development studios."

And he was completely correct in that assumption.

Lol and carmack is right , it just wont destroy big entities such as valve , bioware , and ID ... but dont expect me to believe such BS for smaller ones ...

Just remember quite recently , Ea chicago ... already under the new management .

As brilliant as Carmack is technically, I sometimes wonder about his business saavy and skills away from the keyboard. I'm not saying his assumptions about EA are wrong, but in general some of the decisions id makes (whether by Carmack or the company as a whole) tend to be either very innovative or very much a head scratcher.

Id had the gaming world by the short and curlies during its heydey but is no longer top dog.

Valve sucks. Thats it.

Without Steam, PC gaming would really be in pieces.

Sure, Valve take bloody ages for a game to come out, but it's usually worth it.
