Well then consider it braindead if you wish.
It seems you really have a low bar for
biggest contributors in gaming history and possibly a genius.
His "so called genius" was pretty heavily cracked since doom 3 and beyond.
He basically made an engine with so many layers of mapping, any engine designer could have done it.
It ran like such a piece of shit, I don't think the networking multiplayer ever got fixed.
Loosely quoting here, his "so called genius" also publicly stated "he didn't care what customers/fans wanted, he made what he wanted."
When half of id tried to explain "jump scares" were a thing of the past during doom 3 development, he basically bought all their shares and fired them.
Then, thankfully he started playing with his rockets. At least keeping him out of the gaming industry has been a big boon, regardless of your fan worship.
He deserved to be fired, I can only hope he never comes back to gaming. There's too many sociopaths in the industry.
People can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That's easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked
and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.
