John Carmack Excited About Gaming and RAGE 2

John Carmack tells IndustryGamers that after all these years his enthusiasm for gaming may be at an all time high. "For the foreseeable future, Iím more excited about gaming right now than I have been in really a long time - probably than I have been ever," the id Software Technical Director tells them. "The technology is exciting, weíre doing fabulous things, itís just great on all sorts of levels. Iím far from burned out or feeling that the genres are tapped out." He describes enthusiasm for Tech 5, mentions they're already doing research on Tech 6, and makes slightly more concrete references to a RAGE sequel than his remarks during E3 to GameSpot that "it's certainly heading that way." This time around he says: "but Iím psyched for what weíre going to do in Rage 2, how weíre going to really play up some of the aspects that it turned out werenít our bread and butter, previously but added to the game. Thereís a lot more we can do here thatíll make it fun."

Who knows. It's hard to read Carmack. He gets excited by the iPhone and by the eight thousand year old 360, but he's no longer excited by pushing the envelope on the current latest hardware.

I think he likes the iPhone for that exact reason: the mobiles are still so underpowered for what we're trying to cram onto them (WOOOO MORE JAVA!) that a good programmer can single-handedly still whip up something that's way more impressive than the competition. He may not feel that way about PC hardware, which is why he kinda lost his enthusiasm.

That's how it has seemed to me.
