Re: Tim Sweeney V.S. John Carmack
I tend towards Carmack... he's just so damn good. Half the things that are possible in PC graphics currently are mainly possible because of him. I even cited him in a graphics research project. In addition, it's my experience that Carmack graphics engines are significantly more efficient than Sweeney based ones. That's not to say that Sweeney is no good, but Carmack is a little better in my opinion - his wealth of knowledge and understanding of the graphics field really makes that little bit of difference [to me].

Ridiculous DOES not have an 'e' in it. It comes from "ridicule" and has less than nothing to do with the colour red.
