Yes, on seeing that my thoughts were that John 'Daikatana' Romero was perhaps not the best judge of what a good RPG studio was.nilcypher said:Wow, John Romero. It's been a long time since his opinion was worth anything ...

The guy who brought you Daikatana, and screwed up Ion Storm so badly we'll never get a true sequel to Deus Ex (Deus Ex: IW doesn't count, and Deus Ex 3 I don't really think'll be a true Deus Ex sequel).Malygris said:"ZENIMAX??????? Disgusting," he Twittered [http://twitter.com/theromero] earlier today. "Fallout 3 bought DOOM. Wow."
thank you John, you still don't mean much to everyone anymoreMalygris said:"ZENIMAX??????? Disgusting," he Twittered [http://twitter.com/theromero] earlier today. "Fallout 3 bought DOOM. Wow."
i'm going to have to say the amazing work was done by The Carmack and not Romero and i think that Dikatana proved that reallyMalygris said:You know, I spent a lot of years calling Romero every name I could think of, not necessarily because I was mad about Daikatana (although... wow, John) but because, as I saw it, his Ion Storm adventure resulted in the demise of Looking Glass, one of the greatest studios EVAR.
But you can't take away his past work. Everything up to Daikatana was pretty goddamn amazing. And while I haven't been paying close attention by any stretch, what I've seen on his home page over the past year or so has kinda swung me back around to his side. The guy fucked up, yeah, but that doesn't mean he's some kind of evil idiot. He just dropped the ball, albeit it in a very big, public way.
