Masters of Doom Book Review
This book tells the story of John Romero & John Carmack of id Software. It talks about the creation of id Software, through Commander Keen, Wolfenstein 3D, and later Doom, Quake, and the breakup of the two Johns. I work in this industry, and as such, most of what was said in this book I knew already. There was little I wasn’t aware of, and to me, I’m reading this book going “Yeah – so?” As such, I don’t feel qualified to write a proper book review of this book. I read it solely to see if it was accurate, and from what I can tell, it’s mostly accurate. There’s some errors, and some of that might be due to “point of view”, but I don’t really have much to say about the book. I suppose if I didn’t work in the industry and know the guys already, I might be more into it.
