Everything...I saw the trailer :cry:.

Death to Carmack, I hate that fuck more and more every day.

The creativity has been gone since John Romero was fired by that asshole. The catch is Romero wanted to be fired, id was getting pretty fucking restricted.

Quake was originally going to be the first MMORPG...Granted, it was going to only be 16 players, but back then everyone had to use dial-up because the price of braodband was unreasonable.

What did it materialize into under Carmack and the rest of the teams orders?

Another Doom.

Carmack isn't a designer, he's a fucking programmer, and he still holds true to his core belief:

"Story in a game is like story in a porn movie. It's there, but it's not really needed."

Wow...This is from the guy who kept a Dungeons and Dragons game going for over ten years with his id buddies. He worked on it since the age of 8 and Romero killed it one day by taking a risk. But Carmack didn't care, and he respected the game's rules and ended it in stride.

>DOOM TRAILERS< looks like a bit of fun. curious to how the kind of first person camera approach comes over. I think it would be great to see in the cinema, imo.

Aside from Resident Evil, there has never been a single other decent video game movie. Ever. The Rock is a horrible actor, and the movie is set on Mars. I can't see how this movie will be anything other than one huge cliche...

I'd probably end up watching it.

Worst that could happen is I'll lose 7 bucks and 2 hours of my life.:happysad:

Word...Kinda sad. But it's hard to convert an interactive medium to a passive medium.

i know, wasn't trying to thread hijack.. just that 'final fantasy' is such a underrated movie (cartoon?) that it could almost make up for all the others..
and this from someone who hasn't even played one FF game..
i agree about RE movie, very good.
