Carmack on Retirement

Game almost over for Doom creator? is a pot-stirring article on CNN Money speculating on John Carmack's future as a game developer in light of his other burgeoning interests like rocketeering and fatherhood. The article features new quotes along with a recent comment on Armadillo's site to build a case for hypothesizing that id's next project may be the programmer's last.

there are now many talented programmers in the world that are capable of doing what he does

yes, many can make pretty 3D engines, but somehow (for a reason i can't fully explain) Carmack's engines always feel very "real" compared to others. his engines have a certain solid, tangible weight to them as you play that engines like Unreal, FarCry, Lithtech, etc. seem to lack. the next best one is the Serious Sam engine, imo. it has a similar "feel" to it, but still doesn't seem as real as id engines. i am always able to "lose myself" in a id engine game, and forget that i am playing a game.... most other engines fail to do that.

well, even if he does quit after the next engine - at least we can count on a good 2 - 4 years of D3 engine games ahead of us, and then the new id game in 2007(?) followed by another several years of games designed on that engine.
