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.
What a wild summary of John Carmack lol
"The thing he was most passionate about in life was jump scares and I hate him for it."
"He made an engine with a lot of layers, big whup."
