Was Daikatana actually bad or was it just misunderstood at the time?

    I didn't even hear about it at the time, other than seeing that "Romero is gonna make you his bitch" ad once in a gaming magazine and not dwelling on it at all since it didn't mention any gameplay shit.

      I blame Carmack, he's one of those retard autists who literally just work 12 hours of the day, 7 days a week and don't understand when others don't want to devote their whole life to their job. This is also why iD's games got completely soulless once Romero left, he was the soul of the company, Carmack was the brain.

        Carmack also fired McGee for not meeting deadlines or some shit, and look at what he went on to make
        He had some seriously creatively talented people and he did them wrong

          Despite the lore that Carmack was an unstoppable technical genius, he actually started having repeated issues working through Quake. He bit off more than he could chew.
          He was regularly making mistakes and doing engine rewrites that forced the rest of the team to rewrite their tools and rework levels.
          Romero was happy to chill and give Carmack the time he needed, but Carmack became obsessed with sticking to a fixed delivery date. Which is ironic because Carmack was the one struggling.
          Also, quake was the first time that Carmack wasn't the smartest person in the room, as he had hired Michael Abrash from Microsoft to work on quake, who was a legendary low level programmer. Carmack probably wasn't super comfortable with this.

          Basically Carmack had a minor mental breakdown because he had to face the fact that he wasn't actually an unstoppable programming wizard and projected his insecurity onto the rest of the team.

        This. While he does have very good advice you can tell that he probably has burgers in his ass. (I have a friend who has asperger's and holy shit does some of the shit he says in this podcast remind me of him.)

        Fuck you. If you're not dedicated completely to video games, don't become a fucking developer.

        The industry is full of irresponsible non-committants, and video games are shit on account of it. You can lambast Carmack for being an autistic fuck but he contributed more to the development of remarkable video game tech than you or your ilk ever will in a hundred lifetimes.

        Fucking uncreatives.

        Carmack kind of touched on this with his recent podcast with Lex Fridman.

        Tldr, Carmack with his age more or less said "I wish I could go back in time and not be such a prude", but also still alluded to the fact that he was justified in feeling annoyed by the fact he was doing a lot more work than Romero.

        I do agree that Carmack was the brain and Romero was the soul. It's just unfortunate circumstance. I hope these two autists can work together again one day.

        They were both at fault. Carmack is a genius with the personality of a hallway monitor, and Romero is a creative visionary that let celebrity get to his head and thought he was unstoppable, which made him unfocused and uncaring.

    This game should get a remaster. Quality of life improvements.

    What's the point in porting already legendary games. Shouldn't a remaster improve games that didn't quite nail it? Daikatana is prime material for a remaster.
