While they sure know how to build engines, they don't know how to make games. Rage looks good, but ID still hasn't seem to evolve. What do you expect from guys like ID who still use 2D sky boxes and low polygon counts by today's standards?
Quake 4, Quake Wars are not id games.
Doom3 I believe was the most successful game in id's history. I know some like to bash it, but I thought it was a great game.
