      He thought that people would prefer playing VR sitting on their ass with controllers and dismissed stick design lmao. He knows his shit tho and releasing source code helped a lot back in the days , but he is autistic. Little bit like epic Timmy who is sane and a collected person with wealth of knowledge when talking about his game engine but an autistic spaghetti dispenser when talking about other thing. His bet on standalone VR was goo tho, at least if he will find a way to do cloud gaming with low input in future.

        If you are into reading I recommend "Masters of Doom" by David Kushner. The rise and fall of ID Software is one of the wildest rides there is. It also opens up how small the game dev circle actually was during early 90s and what kind of characters Romero, Hall, McGee etc. were.

    until he made the Quake engine, shit was all 2-and-a-half-D.
    if you're playing any modern 1st or 3rd person game, there's guaranteed a bit of Quake code deep in the source somewhere

        Because Romero was acting like a bum during the development of Doom 2 and Quake.

      • 1 week ago
        Anonymous

        According to Carmack he wrote a program that tracked what applications and how much time Romero was spending at his workstation. This was after others at ID complained to him that Romero was slacking in Quakes development. Results showed a lot of deathmatching and little to no work.

        According to Romero he was tasked with designing the actual game plus creating tooling for it like editors. But since the engine was only in its implementation stage there was not much for him to work with besides concept art and paper/pencil level designs. This is kind of backed up by him increasing significantly his work load as the engine became primed and the development on the actual game began.

        Truth is somewhere in the middle. Carmack could have let Romero off with a clear message of him being on thin ice and Romero could have shown initiative by not dividing himself among multiple productions (he was producing some other game, Heretic I think at the time) while also helping out in auxiliary work like helping American McGee, who was on the verge of being committed from the work load, create the test maps Carmack demanded for his developing engine. In the end though Carmack was too much of a robotic autist and Romero too much of smooth talking bullshitter. Which is a crying shame as they both kind of cancelled each other retardation out.

          He would have ruined Quake if he got his way, which in turn influenced many games afterwards, so Carmack did the right thing.

        Hi, John. Let's demolish your silly arguments one by one.

        >create an entire genre, arguably the most popular in the entire industry
        Someone else would create the genre later.

        >revolutionize it a number of times in a span of less than a decade
        Time is irrelevant, we are not speed running invention.

        >create arguably the best 3d engines ever, used for hundreds of other games
        The engine was good for a very limited time and then better were invented by others.

        >fight the good fight to promote openGL which microsoft wanted to kill with directX/3d, which led to be a huge accelerator for smartphone software development
        DirectX was and always will be superiour to openGL. History of successful software and video games prove this without a shadow of doubt.

        >move on to build rockets, do VR and eventually AI research
        Didn't build a single rocket, didn't do a single successful VR and didn't produce a single interesting AI.

        >years of judo and bjj training with the latter being coached by guys like jean jacques machado so basically being able to murder murder 99% of the population in 1v1 combat
        Cringe and irrelevant.

        Nice try, John, but you're still a nobody.

      That's partly to do with Doom being open source, and partly to do with how solid the game's design is. The monsters and arsenal are damn-near perfect and work very well in a variety of applications.

      Releasing the source code is really what did this, most modern WADs utilize advanced feature sets exclusive to source ports like GZDoom. What's really impressive to me is how people sell entire standalone games based on GZDoom now.

        It's only thanks to Nvidia, actually. SGI wanted to focus on workstations. Nvidia saw that gamers were willing to pay any price for better performance and went all in while surfing on Moore's Law, releasing chips every six months. 3DFX died, Intel couldn't catch up and they are still king.
