Layoffs at id Software

A tweet noted on NeoGAF says that layoffs have hit id Software: "Some layoffs at idSoftware today, perhaps more to come later." Joystiq has a statement from id parent Zenimax Media saying they are "still recruiting and hiring qualified developers" for id Software, and that "development work on future id titles continues unabated," while offering this confirmation of cuts at the formerly indie developer:

As part of its standard business practice, id regularly evaluates staffing to ensure it has a workforce that meets the needs of the studio. As part of that process, some id employees were recently let go.

...seriously? While I agree that it's ultimately subjective, what do you find so appealing about RAGE's art style? There's nothing particularly unique about it. Plenty of games have pseudorealistic art styles.
No it's not unique, they just do it a lot better in my opinion. I'm not a huge ID fan, sure I played blah blah and bleh bloh back in yester year. For something other than a corridor shooter they did well. It's not easy to find the right balance of detail, art style, music and effects to create a great game atmosphere. Hidden & Dangerous is the only game until Rage that I felt came even close to creating such an immersive environment/atmosphere.

Hell, the only difference between Fallout 3 and RAGE's presentations is that RAGE has better models and animations.
The lighting effects and usage in Rage are far superior to Fallout 3, each section of Rage has been crafted with the lighting providing a critical role in creating the right atmosphere for the section. The music backs this up, every time you battle a different clan there is different music that plays.
