It was 13 years ago yesterday that we learned that John Romero was parting ways with id Software. For what it's worth, here's what I wrote about this at the time:
"Just my opinion: I think it's going to be difficult for both Carmack and Romero in the future (I know... poor bastard millionaires). Everything that each produces from now on will be judged against Doom and Quake. If these future endeavors fall short (easy enough to do--those are tough acts to follow), it will be said that the disappointment is the result of the break-up of their winning chemistry. It's got to be a drag always hearing that what you're doing now lacks the genius of what you used to do. Carmack & Romero stand a chance of being the Lennon & McCartney of computer game software.
I hope I'm wrong... "
