Carmack on DOOM 3 & Q3A OpenSource

This Slashdot post from John Carmack (thanks shul and Frans) offers his reflections on the release of DOOM 3, as he proudly says: "I think it is the best game we have ever made, and it exceeded all of my expectations." A subsequent reply from the id Software lead programmer on the subject of the OpenSource release of Quake III Arena, states: "By the end of the year. There are still a lot of higher priority things, but it is coming soon. Hopefully punkbuster will keep the source release from having any negative impact on the player community." Here's a bit more from the first post on id's near-future roadmap:

Amidst all the various Doom ports and expansions, we are starting up on our next game. It will have a new rendering engine, which will be keeping me busy for a while, but the only other thing we are saying for now is that it won't be a sequel to any of our previous work. We have a really solid team that did a lot of maturing through Doom's development, so I have high hopes that it won't be another four year odyssey.

Discussion is the reason why we are posting comments here. And everyone sucking up to who ever made a game hardly makes up for an interesting read.

People can give their opinion, sure. Problem is alot of the people complaining about Doom 3 now, were just 2 months ago heralding it as the savior of PC gaming. They are also the same people that said Far Cry, Painkiller, Max Payne 2 all sucked, along with every other FPS that came out this year. I'd like to know what these idiots think are good games and why they even play games if they never like anything.

I mean some of the complaints I've seen are just way over the fucking top, and other things they are complaining about have been design decisions that have been public knowledge for months and years.

I have issues with Doom 3, there is no doubt. But you don't see me here pointing every little last problem out. Instead I'd prefer to focus on what the game accomplished and the TONS of things that it has improved over other games.
