FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

Gabe has stolen his throne (and doubled the size a few times) huh? You know a problem they share in common? Can't ship a fucking game.

Hes definitely not any idol of mine. Doom 3 BFG Edition sucked and had lower resolution textures on the PC than the original. Rage was a letdown.....In fact a lot of Carmacks newer games are a letdown for me.

*sigh* Fewer good developers I can look up to these days.

The guy responsible for FPS gaming. I'm sure without him, there'll be no Half-Life, Halo, etc.

Next you'll say you don't know who Al Lowe, Roberta Williams, Will Wright, Sid Meiers are.

Im like a needy girlfriend when it comes to game developers. You have to continue to provide amazing games or I will divorce your ass and stop giving you praise.

If a game holds up over time I tend to have a lot of respect(I replay HalfLife series once a year). I don't really give credit to wolfenstein or doom or any of the games that created the genre for half lifes success.

I know its a almost impossibly tall order from the consumer Laughing

You didn't read my previous post, did you? Wink I acted like Longo does whenever someone comes back and ask if anyone remembers him/her. Longo always says, "Who?"

You have no proof of that that would hold up in a court of law.

Which is why he's a representative for Classic Gaming. Not modern gaming.

Also, have you played Doom lately? It still holds up.
