John and the guys at id Software truly deserve the recognition they have both within the gaming community but now within the wider technology community too. It’s no secret that John is responsible for the technology behind games that defined the entire the First Person Shooter genre. The 3D graphics engines he has created have constantly pushed technology vendors to keep up with him! It’s no secret that both Radeon and nVidia worked closely with him to develop their hardware to support the advancements he was making in his 3D Engines, I cant name off the top of my head another single individual as admired and respected by gamers, developers and vendors alike. He’s a true visionary and a pioneer.
