I miss the old id, a lot of fond memories. Quake III arena is one of my all time favorite twitch shooters.

hmm... I remember reading this kind of stuff before.

Either he's a robot who gives scripted answers, or this is older than it makes itself appear to be.

Things that make you go Hmmmmm. Taken from the article.

" But I really stuck with the fact we've got a lot more performance now than we had. I do a lot of these experiences where I do these A and B comparisons and ask “How does this look when we spend twice as much in fragment processing”? etc. and it is my belief that for an intense action game that you get more from going from 30 to 60 than from adding double as much work into the graphics picture that’s drawn there "

It would seem sacrifices were made and MW2, for example uses a custom id engine and runs 640p @ 60 fps. It won't bother me BUT there are certain fanboys that will have a problem with 640p.

This little gem was also in there.

" The PS3 is still far and away better than anything else that’s ever been made... except maybe the 360 "

This has been posted before and I suspect there will be the same result.
