16. Re: John Romero Interview May 19, 2010, 19:32 Nucas
There are far more fucked up and unhealthy relationships in this world than railing on Romero's marriage.
hey, if you say so.

anyway, romero takes the view that modders should pursue a course that soley constitutes free value-adds to strengthen developers, that they're "supposed to be helping" them. says who? fuck that. modding a game is an efficient course to pursue your own creativity and agenda. his comments are incredibly condescending.

the ESRB as an organization is either too incompetent to understand that games can't be judged for third party content that must be actively sought out, or are too spineless to refuse reclassification in the face of ill-informed controversy. in either event, bethesda can blame the ESRB for being incapable of properly exercising it's responsibilities. while i would agree that "nude mods" are rather pathetic i feel it's entirely secondary, just a smokescreen to the actual aforementioned issue.

romero has been taking shots from the sidelines of an industry he left in disgrace for years. he has no right to criticize the work of others. he may have been a great support designer at id but he's capably demonstrated he doesn't have what it takes to carry a team, manage a company or design a game by himself.

In the end his life has been 10x more interesting and successful than the ass-hats that just talk trash about someone they don't even know.
right, right.
