Romero on Making an Old School FPS: "I Have Plans"

Famed designer John Romero tweets a response to the question about whether one of the creators of DOOM and QUAKE has "given up on making a good old school FPS." His answer is unequivocal: "Definitely not! I have plans..." He did, however, quickly debunk kneejerk speculation this might be Daikatana II. Thanks Janic.

The point was obviously that story has little relevance to shooting, the namesake of the genre. It wasn't about singleplayer vs multiplayer.

Singleplayer is just something that id doesn't do very well, at least since Doom 2 (a Romero game), so I brought up the multiplayer. It so happens that multiplayer also makes it easier and far more obvious to judge quality of gameplay mechanics and design in an FPS.

So why not just judge a game on it's graphics? Or sound? Making your criteria more specific because you acknowledge that certain aspects of a title aren't great does not rate the game as a whole, just that aspect.

Doom 1/2/3, Q1,2,4, Rage all had single player components (in most cases the majority of the game was SP). It's nonsensical to ignore all of that and only focus on MP/game mechanics/graphics etc and say "all these games were good".
