Rage is out now. As expected it seems to have turned out thoroughly "meh".
I wonder how many people back in 1996 honestly had any idea that the day would come that the only reason to stay interested in id would be the prospect that Doom 4 might be better than Doom 3.
And cellphone games.
Now if you excuse me I'm going to go play Dark Souls.
Update: I really enjoyed Doom 3 and think it's a bit unfair how much that game has come to be despised. Still, Doom 3 was dated as soon as it hit store shelves.
