[game-debate] Rage 2 Cancelled, id Software Re-developing Doom 4 - Page 2  

post #11 of 14
Rage is one of my all time favourite single player games. In my opinion, it was highly under appreciated overwhelmingly due to the technical hurdles that plagued it for awhile after release. I can't remember exactly what it was, but I do remember some setting in a .cfg or something was all it took to make the textures stream in a more than acceptable way. Gorgeous, gorgeous game. I can't express how disappointing this is, though I also hope the Rage name is not slapped onto anything else one day either. On the plus side, I guess this does mean more focus on Doom 4, so I guess you can't always have it all. I really hope to see a great sequel to Rage happen one day.

I enjoyed playing rage. its very disappointing to see that there will be no Rage 2. the technical issues that plagued the game on release especially on PC brought it a lot of negative press. id also tried something which they never did. making a shooter with vehicle combat, racing, RPG elements etc. some people expected the same old corridor shooter from id. i was glad they tried something different. I played the game with 8192 x 8192 textures and it was gorgeous. really sad man.

IMO, Carmack is a huge has-been.

The Oculus Rift is the start of something huge. I'm not going to count ducks before they're hatched, but I can envision him being the Wozniak of VR. His level of technical understanding that goes into both VR and games themselves, paired with his genius, might be a potent combination to change the direction of gaming. Or it will probably at least add another gigantic appendage to the medium.
