From a gamer's perspective it is ofcourse unfortunate that he has developed different tastes.

Others will fill the void. He could also change his mind.

All John Carmack needs is a game that will get him into gaming again. He's never enjoyed a game since Quake III if you read some part of the article. HL2 and STALKER look like good games to get John Carmack interested in gaming.

Calm down guys ! there is still one more engine he's working on .. so lets focus on that instead of whining about his possible quit .

I thought Carmack was going to try to reach photorealism. But I was wrong...

Go Crytek and Epic!!

Armadillo, IMO hasn't done anything spectacular, and seem amaturish. Like a bunch of rich boy's with too much money and time. Wait till he crashes a few more. Then he'll probably get bored of that too. The guy probably just need's a break.

As much as Im trying to dislike carmack...his stuff is the best. Epic and Crytek together arent as good as him in engines.

Well, maybe he'll realize he is needed, and stay, but i doubt it
