Carmack: "Steve Jobs Doesn't Care About Games"

The suddenly very quotable John Carmack is quoted on Eurogamer saying Steve Jobs not being a gamer is the reason Apple doesn't "deeply get" gaming, as he commented during his QuakeCon 2008 keynote. The full quote, extracted from a lengthier Q&A, gives a bit more context, while also recognizing that he's probably going to tick off the Apple honcho with his comments: "The truth is Steve Jobs doesn't care about games. This is going to be one of those things that I say something in an interview and it gets fed back to him and I'm on his s***head list for a while on that, until he needs me to do something else there. But I think that that's my general opinion. He's not a gamer."

Steve Jobs is the typical example of hubris. Such potential but his attitude keeps the company from going as far as it could possibly go. He's also the reason Apple has been so slow to make Business/Enterprise friendly products.
