John Romero, the veteran developer and id Software founder who helped create FPS touchstones like Quake, Doom and Wolfenstein, is planning a return to the genre in which he made his name.
Looks like he's finally got another shooter in the pipe. Who's excited?

You're confusing Romero with Carmack . Carmack was and still is the genius where Romero helped with his enthusiasm and general game conceptualization. He was never involved in Doom 3 and has constantly failed with his misadventures since, including Monkey Stone Games to being an editor of a gaming magazine. He's all over the map and has been divorced more times then sequels of Doom !.

Carmack is the genius.
