Why does Carmack even bother staying in gaming? He clearly doesn't need the dough. And whatever passion he had for it seems to have evaporated long ago. It's more like just doing it because it's routine. He only seems to be stoked about space related stuff so why doesn't he focus on that?
Follow his tweets, read his articles, watch his interviews and you may learn something about the man rather than selected snippets and comments by gamers. He is a passionate programmer with an interest in other things. You have other hobbies right?

Passionate programmer for what? Games? Not in a long time. Besides he was a technical savant more interested in resolving programming problems than the games themselves. I've never considered a Carmack a gamer by any stretch.
