It's not like he made Doom and the engine by himself. I am sure if Id lives so will new versatile game engines. He has also spawned more than hell with others trying to out do or match him and his team so gamers will not suffer if creativity and competition exists.

I figure Jon Carmack should care more about what he wants to do than what everyone else in the world wants him to do, you know, considering he's himself.
Carmack doesn't 'owe' you anything, stop whining.

No one makes games like Id. I like id’s games best. They are programmed in openGL and have a different look and feel than anything else. I dislike the unreal engine. It feels weird and looks like all the other D3D games out there. Plus this double tap for movement stuff is just dumb. When I was younger a lot of games worked. But now hardly anything holds my interest for very long. If it weren’t for Doom 3 I wouldn’t own a 6800 GT and would be almost done with gaming all together. So to hear John Carmak is going to call it quits soon is very sad.
